Adding books, but books don't "show"
Join LibraryThing to post.
Today I started adding books, and they show as added, but there is no "book" in my catalogue to click to show that it is there. For example, I added John Flint Roy's book, "A Guide to Barsoom". If I search for it in my catalogue, it says 1 book is there, but there's no physical icon to click on. And in "Home", again, nothing shows there.
I see it in your catalogue, including the cover.
Have you checked that you are looking in the right collection?
Yes, it's in My Library. I can search for it, and it says 1 out of 1 book, but beneath it is no cover or anything for me to click on.
I also added another book, by ERB, called The War Chief. At first it wasn't showing up, but I added a member's cover. Then it showed. However, in my Home, under recently added books, both these books by ERB aren't showing up, and there's a jumbled "Today" showing up under no physical icons for the books.
I added a cover by a member, and then Barsoom showed up. War Chief shows up in my catalogue. But it doesn't show up in "Recently added" in my Home. I don't know what's happening.
Both show on your profile, with covers, and I can click on them. If I look in your catalogue in the 'Your library' collection, sorted by entry date, they are among the 5 books added today, and I can click on them.
Now they are showing--I had to delete them and then re-add them, and for one I had to save a member cover and put that as my cover, before it would show. Must have been some glitch, but I don't know how.
There is an occasional caching issue - how long after the adding were they missing? In such cases, give it a few minutes before worrying.
Another data point: I added a work a few hours ago. It still appears in the Add books page and on my Home page, but it has yet to appear in the Your books list.
Edited to add: I added Strange Planet on March 22, and it has yet to appear on my Your books page.
Just now, I added Death at Wentwater Court with the app; it showed up on the Home page right away.
>9 karenb: I'm finding the book (Strange Planet) in your catalog. What exactly isn't showing for you? Are you running a search for it, or something else?
There was an issue with some images being broken last night. It sounds like perhaps the OP was in cover view, and their newly-added books showed no cover to click on?
>10 kristilabrie: User error: Your books listing not sorted by entry date. Changed sort and the two newest items appeared. (D'oh)
