I've gone to my buddy's WL, clicked on the button "post to this member."   But, it stalls at the page where you confirm the ISBN.  Any advise?

The only advice I can suggest is to try closing your browser, clearing your cache and trying again and see if that helps.

I had this problem yesterday, Elisabeth.  I PM'd PBS and they once again came through for me.  This is a copy of the instructions they gave me.  By the way, cleaning my cache did not help.  It was using Mozilla Firefox that helped.

From PBS To Me:

This works normally for us when we try it in Firefox. There appears to be a bug in IE 7 (the browser you are using) and we will fix it as soon as we can track it down.

First clear your browser cache ( = temporary internet files) in IE 7, and then try it again in IE 7, and if it does not work, try using Firefox (which you can download and install very quickly for FREE at

Elizabeth and Misty, thanks for the advice.  DH cleared my temporary Internet files, but it didn't help.   Hopefully tomorrow, he'll download Firefox for me.  

Thanks for responding!
