Please help us make Online Book Club even better! Please post suggestions, feedback and ideas for new features. Wild brainstorming and potentially 'crazy ideas' are super-strongly encouraged! :)

For new members (or old members who run into an issue), please make a post in this forum asking any questions you have about using the site and how it works that are not answered in the FAQ. Not only are we happy help you, but also we can use your feedback to make the site better for tomorrow's new member! A lot of the instructions throughout the site and answers in the FAQ are there because someone else pointed out that it wasn't clear before.

Reviewer Page Redirect

This may be a silly question, but is the link under members' names (on posts, on the left-hand side) actually supposed to link to a page that has only their reviews? I tried clicking on a few different members' -- and my own as well -- but they all led me to the same page. It says "Featured Reviews" and seems to list all the available reviews, but is there a way I can just see one person's reviews? Preferably without going through their profile first.

It should link to the member's reviews. I will tag @"Scott" for you.

I have the same thing, takes me to featured reviews only :)

Scott mentioned recently that he wanted to do away with the Reviewer Page. You can read more about it in Scott's reply on Wasif Ahmed's thread, "Review published, but not added to Reviewer Page." Honestly, I miss the Reviewer Page. It was a nice way to get caught up on a member's reviews.

That's really unfortunate! I never really noticed it until now, but I agree that I don't want to have to wade through hundreds of reviews just to find the one I want... Unless there's a search option on the Featured Reviews page, it could take quite a while! :eusa-shifty:

I was planning on integrating the individual Reviewer Pages with the custom sort page on Bookshelves.

However, I have decided at least for now to keep a simple list of reviews by members. I have fixed the Reviewer Page links so that it correctly only shows reviews by the member. You can filter by genre just like on the main review page.

I have added a note for logged in with a link to view the all the books in the Reviewer's shelves via the Bookshelves Custom Sort page. Keep in mind, the Bookshelves Custom Sort includes all the books in a member's shelves, not just the books they have reviewed through the Review Team.

@katiesquilts and @bookowlie 's reviewer page shows reviews by them but mine doesn't. Some error or am I doing something wrong?

I just looked up your reviewer page. There are three reviews listed, but they are other members' reviews. Maybe there is a glitch.

Yes. Seems so.

As a matter of fact, everyone's reviewer page seems all right except mine. 😐

Scott just fixed the error. It seems everyone whose username had a space were encountering this problem.
Thanks Scott!
