I am trying to post a book directly to someone's WL. There doesn't seem to be the option any more. I'm seeing a lot of buttons to add the book to my own WL, RL, etc. and that's it.

Am I missing something?

If you are on your friend's bookshelf, hover over the "post" button and you will say a message that says "click this to post to this member" or something like that.  You should be able to post to your friend that way.

Is your account on vacation hold? If it is, it won't let you post directly to another member, it will just put the book on your bookshelf on hold, and will be posted to the first person in line when your account comes off hold.

If you are not on hold, you should be able to post directly to another member. Go to their WL. From their WL (i.e., do not click to go to the book's page) click on Post. If you hover over the button it should say something about posting it into the system for that particular member.

Hope this helps.

I think you might be confused with the "mail to a friend" on the FIFO books where you can post those from your own shelf. With the wishlist books you need to go onto the friend's wishlist and hope the friend's shelf isn't on hold. Then scroll down the wishlist and find the book you are posting and click on the "Post" button.

No, I'm not on vacation hold. There's no "post" button. Here's what I'm looking at:

ETA: Hm, it's not showing the buttons...

The book is on my shelf on hold.

I just checked her account. She did put herself on hold. She must have just done it, as I was looking at her bookshelf recently.

I'll PM her. Thanks for the help.
