Have you been trying to use Goodreads Grid Widget and not able to get it to work? Are you copy/pasting the code and not getting anything but the no script version of the grid with a } at the end of it? If so I was having the same problem and I wasn’t able to find much information online to help me.
After this I decided to just find another implementation out there somewhere and try to re-create it with my information. It worked perfectly and quickly (estimated 10-20 min). So along with notifying Goodreads of this issue I wanted to share with others the working solution. I’m not going to say this is the simplest thing in the world but it works. My hopes are that nobody will have to use this blog because Goodreads would have already resolved the issue and we can stick with using the copy/paste feature directly from Goodreads. You can also use the other widgets available to you that all seem to work ok. This is for anyone who REALLY wants the grid list and is willing to do the work behind getting it.
To create your Goodreads grid widget just follow the instructions below:
Then just paste your final code into your webpage and you have a Goodreads grid widget!
