How to WordPress appear on Goodreads

  1. I want to make it so that contents of my blog appear automatically on Goodreads. How do I do that?

    The blog I need help with is contramundum21.wordpress.com.

  2. What is Goodreads? Please post the url so we have some clue as to what you are referring to.

  3. If you are referring to a posting a widget then please post the HTML code for it between backticks so we can examine it. The backtick is found in lower case on the ~ key on your keyboard.

    Backtick
    insert Goodreads widget code
    Backtick

    By posting the code between backticks it will display in this forum thread without executing. Then we can examine it and provide advice.

  4. @timethief,

    FYI

    Goodreads is a social network site for readers.
    http://www.goodreads.com/

    They provide widgets to display current books you are reading and books you have already read.

    I am not sure what is the actual requirement of @contramundum21

  5. We need to have the widget code posted between backlinks widget code in order to assist this blogger. Without the code we are dead in the water.

  6. i think this is it:
