Reminder: reading lists feature

The reading list feature fo booklikes is at http://booklikes.com/apps/reading-lists or you get to it by selecting "apps" from the main menu.   Screenshot:

 

 

If you tell booklikes to add all books from the reading list, it creates a shelf named the same and adds them.   Unlike listopias on goodreads, the lists don't show on the book pages and the list creators manage (you can comment to request updates or discuss something).  No voting campaigns or paid promoters gaming the lists, yay!  Example screenshot from reading list Read Alike List for "How It Went Down" 2015 Coretta Scott King Author Honor Book :

[ UPDATED ] Booklikes Question: How do I know I've already shelved a book (when not on that exact edition)?

How do I tell from the book page, when editing my shelves or search results that I've already shelved a different edition of the book?

 

UPDATED WITH AN ANSWER:  ( thanks to Tannat's comment) On search results you'll see a vertical green bar if you've shelved an edition.  (Still not sure about on book page).  Screenshot showing bar:

 

 

For example, when I am updating my shelves, someone's post has me click open a book page or maybe do a search on ISBN of book in hand.

 

(When my edition has been correctly combined, of course.  I realize if there are stray editions that I first need to click "report" and ask a librarian to combine with correct work.  And that there's a known bug where the narrator name as author causes audiobooks to not combine with their print/ebook editions -- again that should be reported to get combined and edition edited so narrator says narrator instead of author.)

How to insert book page links and cover thumbnail links to books on booklikes
Runaway Robot - Lester del Rey

The large bookcover at left (dashboard view) you get by choosing "post" on book pages, "update and publish" on currently reading display or by pressing the large "plus" sign when creating/editing posts. 

 

If in the text of your posts you want to link to book page (like Runaway Robot - Lester del Rey ) or with book cover thumbnails like:

In order to request editions be combined on booklikes, from the book page you "report" it for abuse rather than clicking "edit" (please include URLs or id numbers of all strayed editions)

I'm posting this because I bloody almost always forget and wade about edit menu until I give up.

 

Grumble.  The lousy report form won't even note the book page you are reporting from so please include that URL/Id as well.

 

I'm not a librarian, just posting because I always forget.  I cannot try to become a librarian or message a librarian because still have so many bugs on booklikes (if anyone has messaged me, sorry, that feature hasn't worked for years for me).
