On Thursday, July 7, UH Press launched a new website. We apologize in advance for the inconvenience and hope you will be pleased with the new interface.
Among the major enhancements to the new web storefront are online credit-card authorization, easier navigation by subject categories and publishing partners, and the ability to order books and journals in the same shopping cart.
One major change is that compliance with Payment Card Industry online authorization standards requires that we no longer take orders more than 30 days in advance of shipping a book. This will disappoint some customers until we are able to implement a wishlist feature that allows people to add forthcoming books to wishlists, which will later generate email reminders when the books become available for order.
Also, because of differing encryption standards between our old and new e-commerce packages, all of our current customers will have to create new logins on our new site. Authors and Educational Institutions: To get your discounts applied to your order, please notify firstname.lastname@example.org after creating your new login and before filling your shopping cart.
Another significant disruption is that all links to individual book records on the old site will be broken. We will have a lot of external links to repair. The new short URL formula for linking to individual books on the new website is http://www.uhpress.hawaii.edu/p-9780824809201.aspx, where “p-” indicates a product page, followed by the ISBN without hyphens, and “.aspx” indicates the web application framework (ASP.NET).
