Book requests search, one-click download, booklists and other visual improvements
Hello, Zlibrary community!
Time for other updates about our library. Since our last blog post, we've spent more time on technical improvements than visual changes, but we still have a lot to share with you.
The long-awaited book requests search option. Now you can find a request by ISBN, book title, author, or publisher.
We also brushed up the form of adding new requests and fixed the flaws of the previous version.
If you read the last blog post you know that we have added "Save for later" and "Add to Booklist" buttons right to the search results page. On second thought, we added the same functionality to the Recently added and category pages for quick access to these options (only on hovering and for registered users).
Even though we mentioned earlier that we definitely wouldn't add a "Download" button to the search results page, after thinking it over again we decided to add it! Now premium users can download the book directly from the search results page. The cherished button is hidden under the file extension. Note that you can only download the original file format, and if you want to convert or send the book to kindle/email, you still have to open the book page.
In the end, our Team apologizes to users who have some books missing from their booklists. Unfortunately, the books disappeared from the booklist due to a technical error, but they are still available on the website. This bug has been successfully fixed, however, books cannot be restored automatically, but you can still re-add them. To apologizes for this serious mistake, we provided such users with a premium account and increased the daily download limit. We're very sorry about this situation and hope you will be able to replenish your booklists.
Update (01 September 2021): Unfortunately, we were not able to identify all the users who had books missing from the booklist. If you have encountered this problem, please let us know at [email protected]
Without ending on a sad note, I'll tell you a secret: big changes to the Booklist are coming! There will be personal and public booklists, and you will have more tools to work with them. I won't reveal all the trump cards, you'll see for yourself :)
Thank you for your attention and feedback. All this really matters to us!
