Right now, covers are displayed by having the templates pass the ISBN to bookcover.php. There's no way to do what you are doing without customizing some code, but a simple customization
probably wouldn't be too painful. For example:
- Modify every template that references bookcover.php so that it passes the record ID along with the ISBN in the parameters
- Modify bookcover.php so that if it finds nothing by ISBN (or has no ISBN sent in), it looks for files named to correspond with the ID in a particular folder on disk.

Subject: [VuFind-Tech] custom bookcover
I was wondering if it is possible to set a custom bookcover for specific items? The reason I am asking, is I know our theses and dissertations do not have ISBN numbers, so a bookcover won’t be found.
