My Goodreads Widget Just Stopped Working
Not working on my blog either, http://pimpfreud.com
Might try the custom HTML route.
I just wish it worked the way it did. I don’t want to play with html…
Same problem here.
Thanks for the code tip, Coffeespew, I will try that.
Thanks again Coffeespew! The code works beautifully! It is much better than the GoodReads widget (more customisable, looks great), so I’ll keep it this way and don’t care about the widget any more.
I too have employed Coffeespew’s fix (fantastic!), but I noticed that when I add that text widget, none of the other widgets under it show on my page. So I have had to make the Goodreads text-widget the last one (and I would prefer it to be higher up!).
Has anyone else also found this happening?
Not working on my blog.
Goodreads has gone blank on 6 of my blogs – I’m removing the widget.
Follow up to Coffeespew’s fix:
it appears that the text widget does not update. I display my shelf “Read” and finished a book today and market it “Read” on Goodreads, but the book has not shown up in the widget. I also changed the ratings for a few book Yesterday, and the changes are not reflected in the widget – it still shows the old ratings:-(
Does anyone else have this issue with the text widget suggested by Coffeespew? And importantly, have managed to fix it… how?
I love that the text widget is so customisable compared to the real widget, but not if I have to re-copy-paste the code every time I update GoodReads…
@ag1024 Yeah, what’s the point of a widget if you always have to update it manually?
Yeah, that seems to be what’s happening to me, too. I tried clicking “automatically add paragraphs,” but I’m not sure what that does. I am trying to share my Currently Reading shelf. If it doesn’t update, I’ll probably remove it.
I don’t think the issue is just with WordPress.com hosted blogs, because I’m using self-hosted and the widget is also showing the same error: “No books in this shelf yet”:
It’s in the footer. It was working fine for more than a year. I just noticed today that it had gone blank.
It’s working again! (At least on my blog it is.) Thanks for the help :)
Hi there – The Goodreads widget should be working for everyone now. Thanks for your patience, and let us know if you’re still having any problems with it.
