Adding covers to books you did not register

Hi all,

I always add covers when I register a book, but I also have a lot of books in my overview that have no cover image that were registered by others. I would like to add a cover image, but because I'm not the first 'owner' of the book I cannot do it.

Is there a possibility to have a feature that allows you to add a cover image to a BCID that has been registered by others? I really don't like the no cover image thing, but I understand that many members register a lot of quantities of books and do not have the time to add covers for each.

A small bump because I would like to know if this is possible :)

RE: bump

Possible: yes. Likely to happen soon: I honestly have no idea! If it's going to happen, then there will most likely be the following limitations:
- the book needs to be on your shelf
- the book has no image currently in place.

I think this is a very good decision!

Sounds fair.

I had the same idea to prevent spamming of weird cover pictures by one time use account makers.

I would be really happy with this feature. It gives the books a bit more 'personality' than just the no image picture. Maybe something for the next update :)

That would be fine. I'd love covers for everything on my shelves.

This is already working with a little trick since several years:

Go to ->Search ->Book Search ->Advanced
tick 'My Shelf Only'
And search for the title of the book, where you like to add a cover.

In the results you will find under the book information now following functions displayed:
edit book details | New Journal Entry | make release notes | update cover

Choose 'update cover' and load up your picture/scan.

This works only while the book is in your hands.

I tried this with two books now. Both registered by others, but in my hands. I found the books in my "all books"/in hands list, and then used another tab to search for those books. I could perfectly well add the picture, but in the "all books" list the pictures don't show up. But then, on the other hand, if I open the page for one of those two books, the photo shows up!! Weird.

ETA: now the covers show up both places..

Oh, I got this to work, thank you!

Wish I'd known about it sooner...but I'll try to do it from now on. :)
