[Resolved] Goodreads reviews not showing

    Can you try adding a popular book with a lot of reviews? I’m curious to see if the problem is on Goodreads side or ours. Both of the books you shared only have one review that is relatively recent.

    It must have something to do with the number of reviews, because I did a test with The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe and the reviews showed fine with either ISBN number length.

    I’ve noticed on some other titles that MyBookTable only shows 2 of 3 Goodreads reviews, and hides the more negative review.

    I suspect this is an issue with the GoodReads API. The plugin only displays what the API gives it. It might be the count but it also might be the age. I suspect that the API does not pull in recent reviews because of some sort of caching.

    My hope is that now Amazon owns GoodReads they will invest in improving the platform, technology and interface.
