hi,
i know there is no homepage-software update realistic, and so on.

but on my wishlist: add the publication date of the reading-source to the catalogue page.

it is something i look up on a regular basis. and most times, it is the only reason for clicking on the reading-source.
even if it is not a must have..
it would be very nice to have in the little data box on the left side of our catalogue pages!

:D
thx for taking care

cheers,
wolfi

It's an update that has been requested before. We've looked into it, and it's more complicated than expected to implement. :hmm: However, it's on the "to do" list.

We don't necessarily have the original publication of the text in the database , just the date of the edition that is read.

good morning,

yes, and that is what i look up every time!

it would be very convenient to add it to the catalogue page, i think.

cheers,

The most common request I've seen is for the date the book was first published so you would be able to show all books first published in 1850 say.

ah, as a sort of catalogue-sorting function?
a tag?

that would be very cool, also.

but i meant the publication date of the book itself on the audiobook-page.
it is not only for covermaking, but also, because i look it up when i'm interested into a book.

cheers,
