I am trying to post a book directly to someone's wishlist.  At first, she had her account on hold and the book was not "auto-request", but thru PM's she has confirmed that it is on 'auto' as of 3:15 this afternoon.  I still do not have a "Post" button on her wishlist.  Is this a new restriction because I'm a "Limited" member? 

Note:  I have sent an email to PBS about this, but I know they are very busy right now. Am hoping to get this resolved soon, as she has ordered another book from me as well, and I don't want to accept it until I know what's going on here.

Debbie is she on your friends list?  if so did you try posting from you dashboard instead of from her bookshelf.  If you use the post option on your main dashboard, stick in the isbn it should show you all of the members who are your friends who are currently wishing for that book.  Only other thing you could do is have her take her account off of hold why you post it.  Its not a restriction that I saw but it could be a glitch from the updates there have been a few.

What is her Membership status?

The unfortunate thing about this is those of with Standard cannot look at what Limited or A la Carte members might be seeing frown

Also, having the book on auto-request does not make it viewable to you if she is on Vacation Hold. She HAS to take off the Vacation Hold in order for you to be able to post directly to her.

Thanks everyone!

She took her bookshelf off vacation hold and I was able to post directly to her.
