Antoni Dol (antonidol) | 5 comments Every time I add a book I forget to include the cover. I see other people do too.

Now, when I edit the book page and add the cover, I get the error: "Update default description can only be set by Goodreads Librarians" and I cannot save the data.

This while: if you're on this page you have been granted a special "librarian" or author status, and can edit book data.

This is a horrible user experience, caused by an usability issue because the Upload cover segment is OUT OF SIGHT on mobile browsers. Just put it in the middle of form, so you can see it when you need it. It takes up some space, but nobody will 'forget' to add a cover to their books any more. It will save Librarians a lot of work!

Now, how do I add a cover to my book?

It should be this image: https://antonidol.nl/wp-content/uploa...

Thanks in advance,

Thx!

Can you also please act on my remarks about the placement of the Add cover segment? It really is a usability issue. It would save you guys a lot of work!

So where can I propose the change in page layout?

Personally I prefer as is, less scrolling.

Countless Users calling for help prove you wrong, sorry.
This is a bad design a must be changed.

Just found the contact link. Strange the CONNECT heading in the footer has NO links beneath it...

Added the issue and a small screenshot to the contact form and getting:

"Goodreads request took too long. The latest request to the Goodreads servers took too long to respond. We have been notified of the issue and are looking into it."

So I can't post this issue to GoodReads at all. So, I save the text and the screenshot and will post it later.

But I'm not complaining...
