I keep trying to post a book to someone's wishlist and it wont go through.  Everything seems to be fine and then I goto check and it hasn't posted.  Is this related to the 1 member online problem?

I'm not sure if it's related.

Is it the exact ISBN?  Is the other person's account on hold?

Yes it's the exact ISBN and no not on hold.  In CMT someone just posted having the same problem

Okay -- probably part of the general snafu, then.  I'm sure they're working on it furiously.  If your Club Communications folder starts working again, and you still can't post the book to your friend's wish list, be sure to send in feedback.

Well I've been messing with it for the last 30 min and I posted the book about 11 times and it's just now popped up on wishlist holds.  I hope I didn't put 10 more copies I dont have into the system LOL.

Michael- No worry. The system won't allow you to post the same ISBN number more than once to your bookshelf. Even if you have multiple copies you can only have one posted at a time.  I checked your bookshelf and you only have one copy of each book so you're good to go.

A WL book wouldn't show up on the public bookshelf.  It should be ok.  I think they are tinkering with the site.

Remember, sometimes there's that hour buyers remorse period.  I've recently posted several wishlisted books to buddies, some show immediately on my account page and others don't appear for an hour.
