Newly added books not coming up in a search
Join LibraryThing to post.
I just added/scanned a couple new books to my collection on the LibraryThing app. I can see them in recently added, my collection total is increased, if I scroll through my collection they are there, but if type the title into Search all I get is “no results found.”
The site search or your account search? If it is the site search, just give it time - the server needs some time to add them to the indexes.
If they still do not show up in a few hours, then we may have a problem but as a rule, books need some time to become available in search.
It also takes a while for newly-added books to appear in your personal search.
As a workaround, you can click on the book in Recently Added, then click on the title in Your Book Information to get to a catalogue view of that book.
Alternatively, if you added a bunch of books that you want to see in your catalogue, you can add an Entry Date column to your catalogue view and sort by that.
Yeah, true. Although they seem to appear faster in the personal search than in the site-wide one.
Thank you so much for the quick replies! It’s working now! Which is fantastic because 18 more books were just delivered that I will need to add! Ha ha ha...
