How are members putting a message at the top of their bookshelf?  I've searched but I can't seem to locate how to do it.

Thanks much,

From the Help Center:

Bookshelf Header

Introduced 9/3/2008.

The Bookshelf Header allows you to add a custom, publicly-viewable message at the top of your PBS Bookshelf.  You can introduce yourself - give an overview of the types of books you have -  comment about a specific book you have Posted - invite members to join your Game in the Games Forum - or just say Hello! 

How to add a Header to your Bookshelf:

  • Go to My Bookshelf in My Account
  • Click [Edit my Public Header] at the top left of your Bookshelf.
  • Type in the text you want everyone to see when they look at your bookshelf. There is a limit of 500 characters.
  • Click Save.

To see your own header on your Bookshelf:

  • Click [View my Public Bookshelf] at the top of your Bookshelf.
  • This will show you your bookshelf with the header on it.
