Does anyone else get this email?  Every time I click on it, it doesn't work.  I've even tried to copy paste it and still, nothing.  It always says " We're sorry, but this page is currently unavaliable" Does this work for anyone else?

I'm not sure what you mean "this email"?  A PM from PBS or just a regular email?

Many times you will get that message when the server you want to connect to is too busy to service your request.  Or you own internet connection to your Internet Service Provider (ISP) has problems.  Does it wait/hang a while before you get the message?

Maybe this is the same problem as blank pages: http://www.paperbackswap.com/forum/topic.php?t=162252

I just checked my Daily Digest and was able to get in. The pages seem to be loading now too. Maybe whatever it was is now fixed.

Imelda, can you post the URL here?

Just right-button click the URL/Link in your email and select "Copy Shortcut", and then paste that into a post.  After you click Submit Reply it will turn into a blue Link and maybe others can try that link.

Okay, the URL for that link is www.paperbackswap.com/members/daily_emails/wish_list_alpha.php

It just takes me to My Account/Main page.

Others don't seem to have problems.  Maybe try clearing your browser cache?

Have you tried clearing your browser cache like this?  http://kb.iu.edu/data/ahic.html

Sometimes when a system gets broken you will get the broken version into your browser cache and then when you visit that page again it uses the cache version (the broken one) instead of a new refreshed copy.

I sure can't help beyond saying I just tried mine and it went right to the list with no problem.

Maybe try turning the selection off.  Log out of PBS (gasp).  Wait a bit and then log on, click it back on and see if that'll fix it.  I've had things go glich in the night and been told to log out of whatever, even turn off the computer wait a bit and then start again.

I tried your link and it took me to the right pages.  I get it as well.  But I copy and paste it into my browser from the PM not the email.  I hardly ever check email.

I think that link only works if your account already has the daily digest turned on. I don't get the daily email, and it just goes to my My Account page.
