Nicole Luiken | 9 comments I think there's something wrong with this record. 1/ it's extremely hard to search, only coming up if I add the author name or series name to the title 2/ I just reviewed it, but the book hasn't come up on my Read books list or been counted toward my reading goal 3/ the series name is missing the comma


Elizabeth (Alaska) | 6776 comments I can't help with the searching, but I refreshed the book page cache, and your review is showing. There is no policy regarding a comma/no comma for series name in the title.

lethe | 13747 comments The series name without a comma is the newer policy, but with a comma is still accepted too. We do not change it to include the comma, though.

The search function is, as the name implies, a site functionality issue, and librarians can't help with that. There are multiple threads in the Feedback Group complaining about the search :)

Looks like the first book in the list to me.

When I click the link, White Trash Zombie Unchained shows up as the latest. However, my goodreads challenge is now showing 201 instead of 200, so that's something.

??

How is your list sorted? I see it sorted on date added, newest first.

(By the way, this is not a Librarians Group issue.)


Elizabeth (Alaska) | 6776 comments This is what I see:

Nicole Luiken | 9 comments It's still not coming up in My Books- Read list or any of the other categories I put in under (canadian and thriller-mystery). Which are all sorted Date Read, Newest first. I can only see it when I pull up the book record or my goodreads Challenge. I even tried deleting my review then adding it again, nothing.

Anyhow, thanks for trying!

I have been seeing reports of a bug, and perhaps it is affecting you.

Nicole Luiken | 9 comments Yes, that sounds exactly like what's happening to me!
