I have tried for two days now to edit my book lists on my profile and it just sends me an error message.  Any one else or is it just me?  Is this something I should mention to PBS?

Cheers,

Tina

I am having trouble with my custom lists ,  mostly putting them in a certain order. Ive had to delete them twice and start over but when I do that it will say this book is already on the list when it is not.

I just had the same problem too.  Trying to add a book to my list and kept getting the error page.  Hopefully it will be fixed soon.

I had a problem ordering a book from someone's shelf - it kept giving me an error message saying "this book is not in the system" or something like that. I would refresh and go back in to see if maybe someone else had ordered it, but it would still be there on this member's shelf. I contacted the member and they said they did not have any requests for it and it was available but I could not order it until several hours later when I tried again. It was weird.

Has anyone written to the Team yet?  They should know there's a glitch (if that's the problem).

I haven't had a problem adding a book yet, but I haven't tried recently.  I have had problems trying to reorder my lists lately though.

Ratz, me, too. Couldn't connect with my Pending Bookshelf list - hope it clears up by the weekend so I can work on it again.

I'm glad I'm not the only one.  When I try to add a book to my list I get a blank page.  Waaaa!

Since Monday, when everything worked fine for me, I can't request books from anywhere on the site that I've tried, can't put books on my reminder list, can't get the Books En Route to Me page to come up so I could mark books received, can't delete a picture I tried to add, and the Search blank isn't working right. Not that it matters, since I can't request books anyway. I have contacted the PBS team, who says some 'changes' they made are not compatible with my browser and suggested some things to try, including downloading different browser. I tried, but none of them helped at all. I'm about ready to give up on PBS - my age and state of health don't make me feel like going on with this annoyance and frustration.

I have been trying to add books to my bookshelf, put them on my wish and reminder list as well as other things. Nothing. I push the button and don't even get a page, just no action at all. I am frustrated because I really enjoy this site and it has never been an issue before. I am glad that it just isn't me.

I am really suprised that they haven't fixed the problem yet.  I just want to add  ONE book to my book list and it won't let me.  I have over 140 on my list, so I am afraid that it will be shelved and I will never get it logged in.  Hopefully, they will fix it soon or we should revolt  wink Just kidding!

I had a similar problem the other day and asked about it in the thread " Something weird is going on" PBS responded.

Whew - I'm glad to know it's not just me.  I've tried for 2 days now to add books to my books lists and I keep getting punted.

I just tried to create a new book list (which works fine, and even saved the list title and all) but my experience is like Adrienne's, just a blank page when I type in a book to add and hit 'search.' I was able to delete books from my lists with no problem, however.

I also tried adding/removing books to/from my reminder and wish list and that worked okay so it seems to be just the personal book lists that are being finicky, not the WL/RL/TBR etc.

You can still add books to your list..Just the long route. Search the isbn #, then goto more options and click +book list and your book lists will pop up....
