Problems with newly catalogued items

Posted on September 27, 2011 by | Posted in about LibriVox, For Volunteers, News, site & admin, Uncategorized | Comments: 8 Comments

Hello, everybody! We have another problem, I’m afraid. Plus ça change, eh? ;)

Further parts of the LibriVox site were migrated last night to a new server, and although it has restored the list of New Releases on the home page, it has unfortunately broken the catalogue pages of some of our new(ish)ly catalogued audiobooks.

If you encounter a LibriVox catalogue page which has no download links, all audio files can be obtained directly from the Internet Archive. Please visit the LibriVox page on the Internet Archive and search for the title in Audio Books & Poetry.

Additionally, you will find all our new releases by going to the LibriVox details page and scrolling down until you see This Just In.

We are hoping this will be fixed very soon.

EDITED TO ADD 10th Oct.: All book catalogue pages should now be complete, except for some which are still missing their RSS and iTunes feeds. We are working on this.

Also, it should not be many days before we can start cataloguing new audiobooks again. Recording has continued apace during this enforced break, so there are a number ready to catalogue. We are champing at the bit to get moving again. :D

    Oh, and if you are wondering if the New Releases feed has broken again – it has not. Unfortunately we are unable currently to catalogue any new books. This will be fixed soon.

    Apologies once again. Rest assured that we will be just as happy as you all to see these problems resolved permanently.

    These few hiccups are a small price to pay for the wonderful resources which you provide

    Good luck with the fixes. Those of us who are hoplessly addicted to Librivox are pulling for you!

    Even though I have a five-year supply of audio books backed up, I’m having withdrawl symptoms waiting for new postings. I love you guys.

    Most of the recently catalogued book pages have now been fixed. Hang in there – there are lots of new ones coming soon. You have no idea how frustrating this is. :D

    The upside to the waiting is how many new things will go up when the feeds are fixed.
