I'm sorry if this has already come up, but I couldn't find it with a search. My wishlist is stuck at 293 books and I cannot add any more, which seems like a bug in the programming. Does anyone have any easy fixes for it, or will I have to contact PBS? I am in the middle of finals week plus preparing for 3 separate  Christmas celebrations so I would prefer to not have to be on my email alot trying to fix this.

 

Has this happened to anyone else? How would I fix it?

Try selecting different "modes" while viewing the WL- estimate, active, hold, author, etc.  It may read a different number because you may have some books that have no author attached to them.   

 

What I am talking about is the "sort by" (author, date, estimate, etc)

For a while when I was in "author" mode it would say I have about 5 less than I acutally do.  When I would try to add another, it would say I was maxxed out.  However, when I switched up the view, it would say I actually have 300 in there.

Books that have no author listed do not show up when you sort by author. This is why if you sort by date, you'll see more books on your bookshelf / wish list / tbr pile / etc.

What Cathy said --

You have seven books on your WL with nothing in the author field, so they won't show up when you sort by author.  To edit the listings and add an author or editor, click on the book's title, then on "more options" --> "edit book data."

Here are the trouble-makers:

Encountering Kali: In the Margins, at the Center, in the West

Every Day is a Good Day: Reflections by Contemporary Indigenous Women

HEKATE: Keys to the Crossroads

Horns of Power

Prayers from the East

Sacred Possessions

What I Learned in Medical School

I always try to set my WL to sort by date or title.  Just because of these hidden books.  We can also do book data edits if there is an author.
