I've updated the site! Check it out


#1

I’ve made lots of changes to the non-forum part of the site — https://thestartupbook.club/

  • It now automatically updates with the latest book. (less work for me!)

  • It includes a page count, telling you how many pages you’ll need to read a day to finish in two weeks.

  • It loads recent comments about each book from the forum.

  • It includes a blogging system so I (and I hope you) can write reviews and articles which will then be added to the main site.

  • Most content now render server-side—which is way better for SEO—not that that really matters!

  • I’ve fixed a problem with the automatically generated reading list articles—they now include quotes about each book from the recommender. Example: https://thestartupbook.club/people/bill-gates

  • It looks way nicer—i think.

Let me know what you think, or if there’s anything you’d like to add. I’ll have another crack at it soon.

I think the update looks awesome! Not super active in discussions but constantly lurking and I try to keep up with the readings!

great work man! really great update.


#4

Awesome, good job! I really like the quotes about books from the recommender. Is there a way to browse the people?

Thanks, glad you like it. There will be soon, I just wanted to get it up and running.

Looks great! Much easier to navigate for the newbies, I think. One question though: is there a way to get the whole recommendations list?

Thanks!
Not yet, I’m just redoing it, should be done by the end of the day.
