Frequently Asked Questions


For a book with ISBN e.g. 0131103628, Special:Booksources/0131103628 gives the text of MediaWiki:Booksourcetext and links regarding the book according to the value of $wgBookstoreListEn in Language.php, currently:

/* private */ $wgBookstoreListEn = array(
        "AddALL" => "http://www.addall.com/New/Partner.cgi?query=$1&type=ISBN",
        "PriceSCAN" => "http://www.pricescan.com/books/bookDetail.asp?isbn=$1",
        "Barnes & Noble" => "http://shop.barnesandnoble.com/bookSearch/isbnInquiry.asp?isbn=$1",
        "Amazon.com" => "http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ISBN=$1"
);

Alternative[edit]

Use a template like Template:ISBN allowing {{ISBN|193151447X}} to produce something like:

Template:ISBN

However, often a separate page would be desirable. This can be done, but requires a page like 193151447X for every book. Those pages can call Template:Bk, so that they only have to contain {{bk}}.
