Is there some problem with posting right now?  No matter how I try to post a book I still can't get it to post, and its not a book I ordered from here so I can't just go to my bookshelf and make it available.

I have tried to go to the page for the book and hit post this book, it takes me to the tab on my account that says Post Books.  The isbn is in the box but the box is not green and nothing comes up.  I also hit check and nothing happens.  

Then I have gone to that tab myself (which is what I tired first), input the isbn (it turns green) still nothing pops up even after I hit check.  

I even changed browsers and nothing change.  What can I do?  Is this a problem only I'm having and I need to do something to fix it like clear something out?  If so I need instructions on that! 

If anyone else is having this issue should I send in feedback, or has it already been done?

Others have been having issues with this. By all means send in feedback and perhaps ask TPTB to post it for you, as others have done who are experiencing this. This happens to me when posting from my iPad but no problems posting from my computer.

I've had that problem within the past week.  But if I refresh the page, it usually takes care of itself...although I've had to refresh the page several times.

See the other thread in this forum about this problem for what I do to eventually get them to post. 

Please everyone send in feedback and report the problem, so perhaps they will fix it.

I've had that problem over the past several weeks, but it usually clears up within 15 minutes. It usually happens in the afternoon. It is frustrating, but I just keep trying. Pat

Check the other forum on posting for PBS's reply and please. please contact them with posting and other problems. They replied to me that I was the first to tell them about posting problems.

Well i noticed the other thread so I guess I'll give them the info i have for the book I tried! 


Thanks Guys I'll be filling out the form on this one from now on so they can figure it out.  That was about the most annoying thing in the world to deal with.  I almost threw my book across the room and said screw it.  Instead I put it aside and it posted just fine today!  Which is weird because its the same book, same computer, same time, same browser.  I'm thinking its more of a pbs problem.  There were not that many people on last night either, nor was the system going slow for me either.  Totally Weird!

I was the one who initially reported the problem to them earlier this month, but it was only with one book, not posting in general, so I didn't think it was a common problem. Then this week I had a WL book that just wouldn't post.....exact same thing you described with me trying to post it several different ways, but no luck. So TPTB ended up posting this one for me too.
