Building Shepherd - Want to test topic pages?
2,955 authors have turned in a book list for Shepherd or committed to writing one (amazing as always 😃).
November 29th to December 10th
This is going to be a short update this week as I am exhausted and behind on emails. Apologies if you are waiting on an email from me, it is coming soon :).
Try topic pages (and search)!
In the last email, we released an early preview of search for you to test: https://shepherd.com/?has_search=1. Thank you for the feedback!
Today we have an early preview of topic pages. The only thing you will see is books and the rest of the page is being worked on. Examples here:
Cold War - https://shepherd.com/bookshelf/cold-war
Soviet Union - https://shepherd.com/bookshelf/soviet-union
World War 2 - https://shepherd.com/bookshelf/world-war-2
Lots more to do but it feels really good to see these coming to life :)
3 key features coming January 2022
Update on Search Feature
You can test this feature here. It is 99% ready to go! We still need to add authors who made book lists to this system (and their books). And we have some small changes coming to tweak the UI/UX a bit.
Update on Bookshelves
The developer has started working on this feature and it is going great! Preview links above and he is maybe 40% done with the page.
Update on the new Frontpage
The developer will work on this next.
What else is going on?
Christmas is almost here! I need to get my Christmas shopping done, and my wife and I are enjoying having family in town to visit :)
Have a great weekend,
