This description is about a Chinese translation however the information on the page says the book is in English. I have a copy of this in my possession with the same ISBN which is in English. How can the description be updated? I'm not sure how to do this.

Koenraad (koenraadkelemen) | 4880 comments Hi Luella,

The default description of this book is set to the description of a Chinese translation. The result is that all the editions entered without a description will take that one. This should be corrected by replacing the default description by one that meets the requirements cited in the topic Liz referred to. To do this you proceed as follows:

- Go to the edit page of an edition that has the incorrect default description
- Just above the description text box, click on "Edit the description"
- Correct (or replace) the description
- Tick the "set this as the default description"-box below the description text box
- Save the changes

This way the description will be replaced for all the editions that had the wrong default and for the future ones.

If you want to change the description of just the one edition (e.g. when the default description is correct, but you would like to add a piece of data specific to the one edition - like say the cover artist):

- Go to the edit page of the edition that has the default description
- Just above the description case, click on "Edit the description"
- Correct (or replace) the description
- Save the changes

Luella | 25 comments Thank you! I looked for it in the manual but I couldn't figure it out. Guess I need to spend a little more time reviewing it.
