customize your "find at:" links

Posted by Michael Economy on February 1, 2008
You can now reorder and customize your "find at:" links:
Example: [image error]

To do this click on find at: ... more ... edit and there you can rearrange the links, delete the ones you don't want, and add new ones you create!

[image error]

Hope you guys like it, its my first real site feature!

Lena Hi, Michael,

This is a great idea, thanks!

I'm having trouble getting it to work, though. When I put in my links and click test, it pulls up the correct page. But when I try to add them, I get this error message:

create a new book link
2 errors prohibited this book link from being saved
There were problems with the following fields:

Isbn url must be a valid url
Title url must be a valid url
link name

I've tried both #TITLE#, which works on the test but not on for the add, and

#TITLE# which doesn't work at all.

What do you suggest?

Michael Economy Hey Lena,

Book links are designed to be kind of universal right now and work for any book site that takes an isbn. Looks like you want to a specific link for just that single book, which is a little bit different.

So when you customize booklinks you are doing it for every book that you look at. Customizing won't effect other users.

What we might need to think about adding is the ability for authors to add custom purchase links for particular books that they've written.

Thanks a lot for the feedback!

Jacinthe Batz I think the best part about customizing our own link is that we can make it more attractive. Click which essay writing service is legit to get help in essays online. People often search keywords and if our link falls on that keyword we are able to get more views and then we can monetize our page.
