I have used the new widget successfully... thanks! But my widget page says I have thirteen widgets! It also says I can go to my widget and stats page. When I go there, it only shows two widgets. Is there any way to 'delete' the other, older eleven widgets?
Yeah, we're a little overzealous saving to the database sometimes. I'm going to look at fixing how that number is created. Thanks.
If I look at your widget stat page, and show widgets with 1 hit, for time frame All, I do see 8. You can remove those from your stats with the remove button, it just clears the stats but wont break a widget that is deployed somewhere.
Just wondering if there is an issue with the widgets today. I have 2 active on my blog that haven't been loading today. Don't know if it on my end or not. Should I recreate the widgets and repost them or is something 'up'?
Oh so it's not just me? I was trying to create my first one and couldn't figure out why they're not loading half the time
Are they ok today? Mine is working. I was on the road all weekend but there could have been some downtime. I'll ask around.
Hi, I have a problem with my books widget : with "random" display of covers only 21 covers from the library appear. What can I do to get the widget to see all book covers ? With the ‘old’ widget I didn’t have this problem…
Thanks a lot for your help, I don't know what to do with that...
This is my site adress :
Because we don't want to download a potentially limitless number of books into your web page (that would be bad), we load 3 widgets-full when your page loads. So if you show 7 books at a time, you will see 21 books in total. Those books should be different as different people view your site, it wont get the same 21 every time.
Hmmm... I see every day the same covers; I asked two friends of mine and they see exactly the same covers than me... so it's a little bit strange, it's never change! should I use an other 'random' option?
Ok. I looked at the data behind the scenes and it looks like the sort-order was set to reverse entry (most recently added first), so that was always choosing the most recent 21 books.
I think this one resolves that, take a look at the results and see if it looks better? You will still get 21 books at a time, but by not sorting them you should get a different 21 each time it loads. http://www.librarything.com/widget.php?shareID=w967f76a96053191edcc4288de0a8b97f...
Before I put this reverse entry, I had just 'random books' during a few days and the problem was thy same : still only 21 covers, still the same books; so thi is why I decided to put 'reverse entry' for try if it'll be better; it wasn't :/ But ok, Iwill put this code now and I will see today and tomorrow if it's different; thanks a lot
I have updated my widgets and placed the cod into my blog however, it still shows the old data even though I've saved the changes imn my blog and refreshed the screen. The widgets on the widget page where they are created appear correctly, but not in blog even though I have taken the new code and replaced the old.
Also sometimes the widgets doesn't animate in the blog but if i refresh the screen it changes.
Can you help?
12: Tell me a little more about what you are seeing, what you expect to see?
Didn't touch 'em! Maybe a caching thing. Thanks for letting me know, though.
hi, i'm new here and relatively new to blogging. i have a very plain, journalist style, book blog on wordpress. i think it could do with a bit of color or animation, so i tried installing a one-cover basic black widget of my 'currently reading'. when i checked my blog, all i saw was text (My Library at LibraryThing).
so, LT widgets on wordpress don't work?
Similar issue here. Books widget on my blog shows 15 covers (3x5). They do "rotate" but only among a subset. Seems to ignore recently added books (recent additions never appear). Sort order set to "random". Is there a tweak that will get the widget to consider all books in collection equally for display?
>17 is your subset pointing to a tag by chance?
Because there's an issue with tag search and tag watch right now and I imagine that also would apply to the calls made with widgets -
After the new book page is finished, CD is going to look into the problem that seems to have general tag searches stuck back in August-ish.
>18 ">17 is your subset pointing to a tag by chance?"
Don't believe so. No tag consistency among the books the widget considers worthy of display. More like, won't display any book added after some (undetermined) date.
When I click on our LT widget and the iframe appears, it disappears behind our other two widgets on the page - and it's especially bad at 1024 x 768 resolution (which many of our public computers use because the monitors are smallish and aging). Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks! Elizabeth
PS - this happens in Firefox but not IE, if it helps.
...Hours later... found out how to workaround this issue: http://www.webdeveloper.com/forum/showthread.php?t=156829
Thought I would post in case someone else has this problem.
I tried to add a widget to my blog at http://kellisblessings.blogspot.com/ but every time I copy and paste it, it tells me that it 'contains illegal characters'. I talked to another Blogger friend who tested it on her site and she had no problems. What do I need to do to fix this?
Hi, I've been using LT for about two years and I love it but I would love to use the widget, too. I tried it once and it didn't work so I forgot about it but now I really would like to have it somewhere on my page. Where exactly can be the widget used? looks like last.fm or myspace are not compatible :( and also Czech web - www.csfd.cz where one can also make a profile is not working with the widget...can you help me please? thanks a lot
I have a problem with my books widget : it only display 3 covers from my library. What is the cause of this? What can I do to get the widget to see all book covers ?
I have a number of widgets which work just fine. I tried to create a new one today and nothing loads and I don't get any embed code. Is it not working?
Is there any way for me to get an inline element changed for two of my widgets? I need to set the overflow for div#LT_LB to "hidden." Thanks.
I added a basic widget to my moonfruit blog. It only displayed as the title with link and the footer librarything link. I do have books in my libray, thet just weren't showing. Also the title is linked to my profile even though I changed it to library on the widget page and re-pasted the snippet. I've removed it from the blog for now, but I really really want to use it. Is it a moonfruit problem, a me missing something, or a librarything glitch?
I cannot get the widgets to work on my blog or website. I enter the date, then save, and nothing shows up.
