I just added a link to my reminder list on my forum settings and was wondering if anyone could click on it and see if it is working.

Thanks!

When I click on your Reminder List link, it open a new tab in my browser exactly like this page...in other words, it is not taking me to your reminder list.

Hmm, I wonder what I did wrong.  Thank you.

I think you will have to tag the books on your Reminder List and create a link from the tags rather than the list itself.

I don't think there's a way to link to the Reminder List.

What Mary said. 

A link cannot be created to go to your Reminder list, since it's not a public viewing page, such as your bookshelf or Wishlist.  If the link worked, then anyone would have access to your account.   You will need to create tags for each book you want to be one the list and then create a link to the tags you created, since tags can be viewed by the public.

An option to creating tags is to create a "Book List" with all the books on your Reminder List and then post a link to that list.

I created the tag list from my RL, but the link is where I am having problems.

Click on one of the tags, and then copy the http://www... address at the top of the page that comes up.

 

Then go to where you want to put the link (probably a box for editing something), and highlight the words that you want to show as a link.  Go up to the chain and paste the address in the URL window there.
