Displays a cover image of a book with a link to Google Books based on a supplied ISBN-10 or ISBN-13.

4.0.3

  • Allow the centring of the Book Cover within the sidebar (Props Andy Tegala for the suggestion)
  • Cache Google Books API call (if successful) for (default) 30 days
  • (Semi-)Gently fall back to previous behaviour if Google Books API call fails

4.0.2

  • Allow not using the Google Books API in preference to the older -- direct -- connection
  • Since I'm probably the only Saffer using this, default to "books.google.com"

4.0.1

  • Display a message (No Google Books Entry Found for ISBN) when Google has no entry for the book in question
  • Reduce the width of margins so that the book entries fit better into the sidebar
  • Added a screenshot of the Widget Configuration location in the Sidebar (mostly since I keep forgetting where it is)

4.0

  • Use the Google Books API instead of previous deep-linking
  • Fix display of ISBN when updating the widget
  • Allow the selection of Alternate Google Domains (books.google.com causes issues in some countries)
  • Display book's Title instead of ISBN on mouse-over

3.4

  • Minor fixes to ensure WordPress compatibility

3.3

  • Moved to a '<div>' based layout instead of using Lists (Kudos to James Sumners for the suggestion)

3.2

  • Improved the book spacing a bit in the internal CSS

3.1

  • Added the ability to have drop-shadows around the front-cover images of the books

3.0

  • Release number re-alignment with internal Hg repo

2.0
