Where did the top 10 go?
« on: June 11, 2010, 08:46:14 am »
I have not been on this site in a while, but one of the things I used to love was the top 10 (I think that is what it was) link at the top of the page. It would show the top 10 books in different categories. I would check there every once in a while to see what free books were popular. It seems the the site has had a makeover and that link is no longer where it was. Does anyone know if that page still exists? Thanks.

    Well, I think it comes and goes along the bottom. . . .meanwhile, there are links up top to lots of content at the top of the forum. . . .

    Since this has more to do with forum options than the Kindle itself, I'm going to move it down to the 'suggestions' area. . .also Harvey checks there more often so may have a more useful response for you.

    Thanks for your note!

    It is still available, at https://www.kboards.com/top10.

    I pulled it off of the main menu because I (possibly mistakenly) thought it was a little-used feature of KindleBoards.

    I would like to get some feedback on it - - it is something that I programmed a while back to query Amazon's database for fast-selling products in a lot of different categories. It does not report properly on Kindle Store books, as Amazon restricts programmatic access to that part of its catalog at present. But for other things, like paper books and music and tools, you can drill down to see items in detailed categories.


    **Update: whoa, it is now reporting on Kindle Books! Looks like this has been opened back up by Amazon. So you can drill down by genre to find bestsellers.

    Thank you!! <br /><br />I just added it to our &quot;Getting content for your Kindle page&quot; - - https://www.kboards.com/content.php - - which is where you go when you click on the &quot;more&quot; link in the &quot;books and other content&quot; area in our menu. That&#039;ll help make it slightly more prominent.
