Topic tags/keywords: request resource

This is a request to create a new tab on the site. The intent of the feature is to formalize the work being done by Dick Cain and Jim Bertelson. The link to the orginal post is here.

http://lumberjocks.com/topics/112#reply-124079

The link to Jims book list is here

http://home.gci.net/~jbertelson/Book_List.htm

The capability should include the ability to add basic information to the books including adding books, editing book information, rating by lumberjocks in general, summary view. Ability to catagorize and browse books by these catgories.

Basic info for books should include as a minimum

Title
Author
submitted by
description
comments
link to the book (mutiple links would be nice)
rating

Thanks to Dick for getting this started and to Jim for taking the time to put this in a user friendly list. Please feel free to add “requirements” or feature requests.

Thanks for the support Wayne.

My old forum topic has been superbly enhanced with Jim’s fine contribution.

I think you have a great idea to go further with it, & add a tab as you suggested.

I hope Martin has time. I belive he has been quite busy with behind the scenes upgrades to support the growth of the site.

This is an excellent idea! I hope Martin can find the time to implement something like this.

We already have this function built into LJ – the Books category of the Reviews tab.

Sort of. It is really not efficient for browsing.

not sure I’m understanding. Can’t you do this with the book review?
What do you mean by “not efficient for browsing”?

I’m sure I’ll say “Ohhh!!!” when you explain but I’m missing it at the moment.
Rather than reinventing the wheel, we might find a way to add to the efficiency of the current structure.

To tell you the truth Debbie,

I’ve never noticed that the reviews lists books. Silly, isn’t it.*<(:O}#

I think it looks like a decent way to post a review.*

I usually always look at the tool reviews, that must be why I missed it.
