We have updated the members area update bio page and the public extended bio page to utilize a new service from Amazon to provide information about books. The old service was discontinued.
The whole format was a bit clunky so our developers made it easier to engage:
To participate, log into the Members.Ezinearticles.com site with your regular username & password, click on PROFILE MANAGER, click on EDIT AUTHOR BIO, select your author bio to edit, and then add up to (3) valid 10 or 13 digit ISBN numbers of books that will be found on Amazon.com. Click SAVE changes. You’ll find the book image, title, author name and link to the book on your extended author bio page [Example].
- The members area update also includes moving the Amazon search and clarification of the links.
- We now have a global ‘Search for Books on Amazon’ link above all the ISBN text boxes that will display a better looking, more compact search form. It is displayed to the right of the text boxes instead of at the bottom of the page.
- We added a link underneath each ISBN text box that will allow a user to quickly verify ISBN numbers entered.
- After you are done and click SAVE to update your public extended author profile, we’ve added a quick link so that you can see what the public sees instantly.
