Book shows on site but not in the page for that book nor on the author's page
Join LibraryThing to post.
On or about Sept 22, 2018, I finished reading Joy to the World How Christ's Coming Changed Everything (And Still Does) by Scott Hahn. I then entered the book in LibraryThing as I always do when I finish reading a book. I find however in this case that I have the book and posted a short 'review' thereof does not show up on Scott Hahn's page. Nor when I seek to look at the reviews of the book mine does not appear with the 4 that are there (though it appears at the top of the page!). If my review were shown it would be the fifth review, but the book is listed as having only 4 reviews.. I do not know how to fix this and I posed the matter on the Combiners group for correcting that I have often used in the past and though various members of that group have checked they don't know hot to fix it, either. So a member of that group suggested I try this group and see if someone can tell me why this book is treated differently from all the thousands of other books I have posted and 'reviewed.
Here is the page which shows my review on the top of the page but not with the other reviews: https://www.librarything.com/work/15407098/reviews/160712668
Here's a link to the discussion in the Combiners group, for reference: https://www.librarything.com/topic/300675#6720941
Found more evidence of this. In my catalog I can see Life of Pi, which I added to LT in 2007. The catalog view says there are 36K members, so my copy is combined correctly into the main work (and AFAIK has been for over a decade).
However, when I go to Yann Martel's author page, there is no checkmark next to Life of Pi.
When I click Life of Pi from my catalog, I am taken to my book page, with all my associated book information. If I click Life of Pi from the author page or from a tag page or from the touchstones in this message, I am taken to the work page with no evidence that I have the book in my catalog at all.
Here's the tag page for "animals", with no check mark next to Life of Pi
>4 norabelle414: Hmm, that's interesting. I can see your name on the list of members who rated it four stars here: https://www.librarything.com/work/5197633/members. Out of curiosity, did you make any changes to this book recently? I'm going to try signing in as you to see if I get the same result.
ETA: Yep, I see the same thing. Very strange.
>4 norabelle414: Check it now? I cleared your caches on my end and it looks like that resolved it. Still strange that I'd have to do that, though.
>8 norabelle414: Yep, already done. :)
I'm in the middle of finishing up Early Reviewers for the month now, but I'm going to poke around my library and see if I can find any examples of this happening to me. It's very odd to have something like this be a somewhat isolated incident. My initial suspicion is a replication error in our server backups.
