Atthis Arts (atthisarts) | 10 comments The author has tried setting the default edition to this title several times (following the correct procedure of clicking "Edit Details", etc). The new "default" edition then shows up on her author page, but the wrong edition is displaying in search results.

There are 3 editions of this book, 2 from 2016 (a Kindle edition and an ISBN ebook edition), and an updated 2020 edition (we're the publisher of the new edition).

She can switch the default between the two 2016 editions fine and the search results are correct. But when she tries to make the 2020 edition the default, it reverts back to the 2016 ISBN ebook edition in the search results.

Anyone see this happen before? The author has reached out to Goodreads support, but they haven't been able to correct the issue.

1. If Goodreads support cannot help, then volunteer librarians will not be able to do so either.

2. I added the new Kindle edition, so it might be worth trying to make that the default edition.

Atthis Arts (atthisarts) | 10 comments Thanks -- we'll see if she making the new Kindle edition works.

I understand that the Librarians have no control over site functionality. Was hoping that someone had seen this happen before and knew a workaround.

Atthis Arts (atthisarts) | 10 comments Making the new Kindle edition the default worked. Thanks!
