We are pleased to announce a new feature to Textbook Nova that we will be testing out over the next few weeks… comments!
When a visitor has found any book on the site they are now able to use a Disqus plugin that will allow them to comment on that specific book. We can share ideas or thoughts that are relevant to each book because there is a separate comment section for each book! Feel free to use this feature to help others learn more about the book they are looking to purchase. Over the next few weeks we will be monitoring this new feature and we will ultimately make a decision to keep or scrap this feature, based on the user feedback.
In addition to that, the astute visitor may notice that we have re-formatted the book details page. In previous versions of this site the only information provided by the location bar in your browser was the ISBN number… which really doesn’t mean much to the average human-being. If you take a quick glance at your location bar now, you will notice that it also includes the title of the book. This means that users sharing the book details from external websites will be more confident that the book they land on will be the actual book they are expecting.
As always, please feel free to reach out to us on Twitter @textbooknova or Facebook to give us feedback on these new features; and we are always open to hearing your suggestions on how we can make this site better for you!
