Putting GoodReads on my blog

  1. Hi,
    Does anyone have a suggestion as to how I can get GoodReads to show up on my blog? I have read the troubleshooting information, but I still haven't found the problem.

    Thanks for any help,
    Wendy

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

  2. I went to the support documentation here http://en.dupport.wordpress.com and typed in goodreads. http://en.support.wordpress.com/?s=goodreads
    Here are the instructions > http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/goodreads-widget/

  3. I'm sorry I made a typing error on the first link above > support documentation > http://en.support.wordpress.com

  4. Hi,
    I tried putting GoodReads on my blog. I read the help first and then tried it but I didn't have any luck.

    When I copied the numeric ID the first time, I didn't see my books in the sidebar. Then I looked at the URL more carefully (the one you see when viewing your goodreads profile).

    The dash between the numeric ID and my name looked suspicious to me and I decided to copy the dash as well.

    Voila! The books appeared in the widget.

    I think the support documentation should be updated OR this is a bug (I suspect the latter).

  5. The strange thing is now that when I take the dash out after the ID, the widget still works. I tried a different browser... well, maybe it's just the initial setup thing.

    Or there is a some kind of delay issue.
