Add author and series to book titles in Fanfare. July 17, 2018 6:07 PM   Subscribe

Pony request: in the list of book related fanfare posts, show the author (and series when it's relevant, maybe number in series) as well as the title of the books.

To make it easier to skim the list and pick out things that look interesting.

We're working on some redesigns for the front page of FanFare right now, so this is timely!

I keep meaning to request this pony also and I keep forgetting, so I second that this would be a phenomenal feature!

Yes, and let me piggyback on this to remind people to mention the author when they post a piece of writing to MeFi. That great article didn't compose itself, you know!

Yes, this!

And for movies - the year of release.

Miniature pony add-on: any chance of fixing the thing where searching on Fanfare sometimes results in multiple identical results? (Go search The Handmaid's Tale -- you get 3 separate results and all go to the same place)
