Having correct book reviews is such a big thing right now (and I agree with it completely!), so I want to change some of mine.  Most of them were done back before we were able to edit book data, so they're really descriptions of the books and not reviews.

I know we're supposed to be able to change them by clicking on the "write review" button on a variety of pages, but whenever I click on one of them that I know I've written a review, the window never pops up.  If I click on one for a book that does not have a review from me, the window pops up and I can type whatever I want.

Has anybody else had this problem?

I went and checked but the window popped up without a problem. Sometimes I hold down the control key when opening a new window just in case my pop-up blocker decides to be difficult. Do you have a pop-up blocker enabled? It doesn't seem likely that's the problem when the other window opens up, but it's the only thing I can think of to try. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful!

I tried to do it while holding control down just in case it made a difference, but it still didn't pop up.  The other ones still came up fine though, even with holding control down.

Thanks for trying.  It was a good suggestion :)

Try doing it from your bookshelf. Ive run into that problem when I was trying to do a review for a book that I had entered manually. I had to review it from my shelf.

I've had the same problem. I also went back to correct my reviews and was able to change all but 3. The review pop-up window doesn't pop-up for them. I've tried on and off for a month now thinking it would be fixed but still doesn't work.

I know that I had tried it from my bookshelf before, and I didn't work there.  I did it again just to be sure though, and it still doesn't work no matter where I click it.

I did notice though that down on the bar at the bottom on the screen (the one that says loading, done, etc) brings up "Error on Page" whenever I click one of the ones that can't be opened.

But if I'm not the only one with the problem, then I may send a message to R&R.  I'd really like to fix the reviews that I've done.

I just wanted to update that I have now tried editing the reviews on a different computer, and it still is not working for me.  I'm going to send a message into R&R.

I'll update here again with their response in case anybody else needs to try to fix the problem.
