Updating Book Thumbnails after a cover change - Santos - 01 Sep 2014 06:56 PM

Quick question: My Book's cover has been updated on amazon, how do i update the book thumbnail on this site?
The only option i could see was to deregister the current book (press button that says I'm not the author) and then try registering it again, but it seems to end up using the old cover,
My apologies if this has an absurdly simple answer.

I've been trying to do this for years unsuccessfully! I'd like to know the answer too!

Go to My Account, My Profile, Edit Signature?

I could be wrong - it's a while since I've done this.

It's the books on our profile page we want changing (I think?) rather than our signature.

I've no idea how you put the books in your signatures as I'm not an author.
But if I was to edit anyone's signatures, I'd just change the path within the [img] tags
I would do it for you but the images on amazon all have the "look inside" attached to them.

No, that doesn't work.
The only place i can see were books can be linked to an account is the "view profile" page.
But the site appears to remember the first image uploaded for a book.
Attempting to add the book again doesn't update the image to the one currently held by the Amazon site.

Is there a way for an admin to purge the existing book data (as in the thumbnail) so it can be re-loaded?
Or maybe make it so that attempting to add the book again causes it to refresh to the new image, that would be ideal.

Lou may be the only one who knows the answer to this. Pondering

Does that look right?

Perfect, thank you Thumbs Up

Edit:

Actually, now the i have a closer look at it, the book on my profile hasn't changed, the only thing that's changed is the pic in the signature.
It really should be fixed at the source rather then just patched up like this.
