Navigating this site is a bit like trying to find buried treasure with the wrong decoder ring!

(Formerly the "Support, Feedback and Forum Announcements" forum.)
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.

😯 or maybe I just have to try and find a computer? I have a tablet and an LG X Power phone, but perhaps these are not compatible with your site! I can't find my book I'm reading, though, I've downloaded it.

I can't seem to add books to my shelves, either. But, maybe I'm not doing something correctly. Please help!

I've never had any issue navigating the site on my phone. The more you explore the site, the more used to the layout you'll become.
If you haven't read it yet, this thread should help with some navigation issues.

If you received a book from the Review Team, it will be on whatever device you downloaded it to.
If you can't find it, your update tab has an option for submitting an error report. Just do that and explain what happened/ask for another copy.

The FAQs on the front page of the Bookshelves explain how to add books to your shelves (though there seems to be a glitch at the moment with importing books from Goodreads). The other options should all be working. :tiphat:
