Here's an update with a much requested feature! Well, actually it's an update made up of a bunch of smaller features and changes, all combined to make one captain planet of an update.

This update allows you to share your collection with other site users! Remember, all you have to do is log in and click on the + buttons next to each book to add books to your collection. I'm trying to make it as quick and easy as possible. If you don't like waiting for the page to reload, you can even hit the plus button to open in a new tab!

I'm working on getting it to function using AJAX so it doesn't have to reload the whole page before saving your book addition.

Lets go down the list of features added in this new update.

1. Each user now has a profile page!

The direct url for this page is http://www.tradereadingorder.c…../username/ – your username is whatever you use to log in with!

2. The profile page displays:

Your Avatar, your full name (whatever you choose to put here, I don't require this to be a real name), your display name in parentheses, your website link and your email link.

Your Bio - this is whatever you put in on your profile page.

Your Recent Blog Posts and Reviews (if you've submitted any through the backend or are a regular author here.)

Your Recent Comments (on any blog posts)

and finally, YOUR COLLECTION.

3. Forum Profile Links, Comment Links, and Author Names now link to profile page

All the user links on the page should now link to this profile page, instead of seperate forum profiles and site profiles. This means that you also just edit your profile through the wordpress backend instead of the separate forum form. You can now upload an avatar directly on this page! I apologize if you previously uploaded an avatar, you'll have to do it again or use your Gravatar.

On the upside of losing the old ones, you can now upload a bigger avatar.

4. Avatars Now Display In Comments and on Sidebar!

Avatars now display in the comments and on the sidebar after you've logged in. I'll be tweaking the layout of this stuff more soon, as it's kind of awkward right now, but there they are! Again, you can upload an avatar directly on your profile page. Play around with it and let me know if something seems broken!

That's it for now! Once I figure out how, I'll be adding Recent Forum Posts to profile pages. And of course the wishlist, if we ever get that working.

Let's share our collections guys! Here are some examples to start you out:

You can see my profile and collection here and you can check out Beth's little profile where she's listing the books she's read so far.

Wow, awesome! Great work, Ian! And I'm fine with uploading a new avatar, since my first choice for an avatar before was too big at the time.

Thanks Marc! Let me know how it goes. I gotta tend to some actual work work that I've been letting slide, so I'll be busy tonight, but hopefully I'll have more updates tomorrow.

Looks like you're doing well so far :D

I probably don't have every book in my database yet, honestly. Long way to go there.

One other thing I have to do at some point is change all the numbers so if you're looking at a master list of all your books the different lists don't cross into each other. Right now a fables book might show up in the middle of your dc books, etc, because they weren't assigned numbers based on one long list, just on their individual lists. Pretty stupid of me. But I gotta figure out a master order now.

I'm thinking

Self Contained
Marvel
Ultimate Marvel
DC
Wildstorm
all the other smaller lists

I have to put whatever is going to have the most items in it first, because the reading order ids are based off of dates in order to work easily within wordpress, and DC is actually kind of near the "now" date. oops!

The size of my "collection" should nearly double after I get my ebay purchases, haha. Really hoping those will finally come today.

Yeah, I must have most of it in already:) Would need to go to bookcase at this point to see what I've missed…. will do this soon!

I'm yet to find a book you don't have!

From a list organization point of view, I think it would be best if you could choose which universe you would like to look at in your profile, instead of just having one list…. IE DCU, Ultimate Marvel, Marvel etc. Would never really want to look at these list combined as they have no relevance to each other.

A master list of everything is still great though, and I have no idea what you are up against on the technical side.

Talking of Ultimate Marvel…. I've left those off my list at the mo as I have the Oversized hardcover’s, which are usually 2 TPB's in one. Maybe these will be added in time.

Not criticizing in the slightest here – just hopefully giving constructive feedback, which I’m sure has all crossed your mind already!

No worries – criticism is highly encouraged! Getting better about organizing this stuff now will always help in the long run.

I agree that it would be great to be able to tab between separate lists. It's possible in theory. Something I'll have to figure out on some wordpress forums, probably – they don't seem to be too responsive lately, unfortunately.

The ultimate marvel list was one of the first ones I threw up and is badly in need of an update. It just started out as a list of the trades I'VE got in my collection (or planned to buy) like everything else on this site, haha, so it really needs the other editions added in, plus the comics that came out since I put it together several years ago (pre website, this stuff was all just in an excel document, haha)
