Taken to a paginated page of a limited set of reading journal entries after editing an entry
Nov 21, 2021
When I go back to edit a reading journal entry (just the notes section, to add a thought or a missed word), after I click save, the page then shows only the last three entries, even when I refresh. I have to go back to the book's page and click through to find journal entries to be able to see all entries again.
Fixed some weeks back now!
Hello, would this bug also be the reason that when I go to my read books, click the book I want (in this case https://app.thestorygraph.com/books/d0733e96-0fa2-4c13-889f-1a53cb437825), and click "view journal entries", it only shows me the first five journal entries for the book, including the "Started reading" entry, even though it also says "34 entries" at the top of the page? If so, is there a way to get the rest of the entries to show? I use this feature to craft my book reviews, so it's very important to me. Thank you for your help!
StudioMikarts As you scroll down the rest of the entries should appear! There is another bug where sometimes if the entries are short/brief and the display large, pagination isn't triggered. Is it possible for you to resize your screen and see if that's the problem?
Nadia Yikes, that is definitely the problem! I made my browser smaller and the remaining entries loaded! Can it be updated so there's a manual link to click to show more? I hate the idea that I'd have to shrink my browser just to view my journal entries once I'm ready to write a review 😥 To be honest, I much prefer manual clicking to show more entries than the eternal scroll thing on any website, because if I click to go to some other page and then click to go back to the previous page, the scroll either forgets where I was and I have to scroll down until I find it again, or it just takes forever to load where I was in the list, when it does remember where I was. I hope that makes sense! Thank you for working with me on this!
StudioMikarts It's not intentional/intended that you have to shrink your browser! It's just a bug we've noticed and haven't fixed yet. We will do eventually and sorry for the inconvenience in the meantime. Thank you for your feedback!
This is a known bug which we will fix soon! If it's a book that you're reading right now, in the meantime I've made the "Reading journal" title a link so you can click and see all entries easily.
(What's happening is that behind-the-scenes the code is attempting to return you to the 'last page' you were on, and right now that's including the specific 'page' of results that you scrolled to, hence showing a limited number of up to 5.)
