NEW Cover Problem on App (not Amazon Related)
Melde dich bei LibraryThing an, um Nachrichten zu schreiben.
Did you update the covers on the website and then look at them on the app? If so then you'll need to do a pull-to-refresh at the top level of your catalog within the app. This will force the app to update all of your book data.
For performance reasons we don't do a full reload of your entire library within the app for every action.
If that doesn't fix it then try signing out of the app and signing back into your LT account. (from the account view)
- I do see that your How to Avoid a Climate Disaster is showing a generic red cover on the app, but a real cover that you've selected on .com.
- pulling down to refresh, on both the book page in the app and the "All books" page doesn't refresh the cover.
- there are, as you mentioned, numerous other generic covers showing in your catalog on the app.
- even looking at your "Cover Explorer" page there are only member-uploaded covers selected, nothing from Amazon and none without covers.
It seems the data is simply not refreshing for you, here, on the app. Passing to conceptDawg to dig into, perhaps he can see more about what's going on.
To change your book's cover, select a cover image below or upload your own cover image.
This book uses a custom cover (remove it).
When I hit remove it, sometimes that fixes the issue. Other times, it doesn't? And, when I try just "selecting a cover below" or uploading a new image, I still get this message.
Don't know what's causing this to pop up on some and not others. And, the default "substitute" cover is a different one than the one I have chosen as my default for books that simply don't have covers.
Not sure if that helps or complicates the issue.
Correct, there are no Amazon covers. I was having the problems that so many others were with those covers disappearing. I changed my settings and did the work of selecting member covers for hundreds of books at the beginning of the year. Which seems to have stuck and is a good (if laborious) workaround for that bug on my computer. But, it was in doing this that I ran upon this app problem.
You will also notice that if you go to the weird red generic cover ones and select edit, the actual cover that I chose is showing up on that page, just not translating to the list of covers on the "your catalog" page. So, that seems to be the gap that needs to be closed.
