This change has made this site less fun and more complicated. Much more of this and I'm going to have to switch to a different site.

This change has made this site more fun and less complicated. Much more of this and I'm going to be on this site for good. Great work!

ALTHOUGH I LIKE SOME OF THE NEW CHANGES BUT THERE IS SAY "OLD IS GOLD"....THIS MEANS THAT I AM NOT LIKING ALL THE NEW CHANGE....

MemlingsAngel

I'm not impressed so far. Changes take too long to appear. I've been trying to move a book from "Reading" to "Read" status for several days and now it appears on both lists (and yes, I've cleared the "Reading" box - many times. I've even removed the book completely, and it's still there, and wrong.) I also couldn't get "Search" to actually search for anything.

While the new look in the options look pretty nifty, I found the arrow beside the "edit" option a little frustrating. The pop up doesn't seem to want to stick around even when the cursor is on it. Then when I clicked "reading this", the whole book was taken off my shelf. I had to go back to the book's page and add it again.

Maybe it needs a little getting used to, but I've had a bad start with it.

I'd like to reiterate what Memlingsangel says above. It's currently impossible to remove a book from "I'm reading". If you "unclick" that option either (via the Edit button or the little drop-down arrow), the book appears to go grey and disappear from the shelf, but when you go back a minute later it's still there. As a result, I now have 3 books in "I'm reading" where there should only be one. It'd be great if you could fix this. Otherwise, I actually do like the new visuals.

When you just click "Add" without selecting Planned/Reading/Read, where does the book go?

I liked the old way better, actually. I could put the book on the shelf I wanted, rate it, and set the read date quickly. The same actions now take longer with the new layout. :(

I also liked the "move to I've read" option; now, that workflow is more difficult.

Hi Asma,

Thanks for letting us know. Have you had any problems moving other books using the drop down menu next to the Edit button? If so, feel free to email me the title info (feedback@shelfari.com). Thanks!

Shelfari

Hi Stefan,

If you refresh the page, do your books show on the correct shelf?

Shelfari

Hi Arthaey,

When you click "Add" the book is added to your All Books list. You can Edit the book as soon as it's added and customize the list(s) it appears on, add tags, reviews, etc... or you can click the drop down menu on the right side of the Edit button to add the book directly to a list (similar to the old menu button). Thanks for the feedback!
