Looks like that "Language of the book" listing under the Statistics/Memes page is missing languages. At least it is for me.:
Language of the book
Looks like someone looked at it. It's now labeled (xxx). I don;t recall reading any books recently written in porn though. :)
>1 Number-wise it looks like it works if you count the books where you have "English," as the language of the book. (Do you have something odd entered as a secondary language on those ones or something?)
The missing field is probably those works that don't have a language assigned.
Now the language (including xxx) is a hypertext link, and one would expect it to point to a view of the books in one's collection written in said language, right? At least for me it doesn't: I'm getting all of my books, which doesn't really help. Is this a bug or do I misunderstand the aim of this feature?
I now have this "xxx" listed under my book languages section, too. It's not a matter of no primary language selected, since 3249 are English and I only have 3324 books total, so there cannot be 400 without a language. Clicking on the xxx link brings up the whole catalog rather than a filtered portion of it.
7> Seconding this, about it not being "no language selected". My numbers add up to less than the total number of books in my catalogue, which means at least some didn't have a language selected, and if so, there should be an xxx number.
Also the links just take me to my whole catalogue, but it looks like they're meant to be filtering by language, possibly?
Eta: i see this is being discussed here, too. I started reading talk topics from the bottom up and didn't see the other one is also on-going.
That's what bothers me much more than seeing "xxx" instead of "unknown" or other words to that effect...
> 8: They used to filter by language. But I now also get sent to my entire library from any of them. Seems to me that this is worth its own bug report.
Still haven't heard anything official on this issue. Wonder why it's such a mystery...
Update on why this isn't fixed yet (see http://www.librarything.com/topic/107331).
There's something going on with Poweredit here. I need to look into it. It's higher on my list.
Assigning to Jeremy. This is the same as another bug you're working on with CC, right?
