Just wondering how the books are linked to the right artists, and is it only books with 'music' genre that will be linked?

For example, Gary Mundy wrote a memoir, but if I don't put the 'music' tag in the genre, will it link to his artist page on Discogs?

https://www.discogs.com/artist/302877-Gary-Mundy

And what if, for example, his Discogs page was "Gary Mundy (2)", how would the link go through?

And how long does it take for the book to appear on an artist's Discogs page?

Thanks!

hey screamandwrithe, good question and maybe something that could be better documented. The book / film / poster tabs on Discogs are based on the Discogs artist having a link to their Bookogs entry (or Filmogs or Posterogs).

I added the Gary Mundy Bookogs page to the Web Links section of his Discogs page and now the related books show up on the Discogs page.

It is based on a link being present on the Discogs artist, not an exact name match.

And how long does it take for the book to appear on an artist's Discogs page?

It should be immediate.

Hope that helps, let me know if you have any further questions. We are pretty excited about this integration. We hope it can help build momentum about music related submissions and make Bookogs an authority in that field. Happy to discuss more.

Great way to integrate! So simple. Thanks for the heads up. I've now got a lot of Bookogs links to add to artist pages based on what I added to this database last night :)

Great, happy to hear that. Cool to see these connections getting made!
