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.

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).

I tried a different browser… well, maybe it’s just the initial setup thing. Or there is a some kind of delay issue. Author Posts The topic ‘Putting GoodReads on my blog’ is closed to new replies.
