Would someone who has their TBR successfully linked in your signature please post a reply here?

It has just been brought to my attention that my link isn't working properly and takes any click to a person's OWN tbr and not mine. Trying to fix it. :) Thank you!

On the URL you need to remove the part that limits it to your own. Will be back on a machine I can copy on.

Darn it.  This is how to link your tag list, not your RL.  Sorry.  Will include it anyways. 

For a Tag list... Copy the url (the address of the page remember to remove the mbr_only portion of the tag or no one else will be able to view it)

I think the issue with the link has to do with the My_Lists portion and instead needs the member ID info. This link doesn't have the mbr_only portion you mentioned. Here's the link with a couple of spaces added in....

http://www.paperbackswap. com/members/my_lists/tbr_pile. php

 

And so I was going to see what anyone else's tbr pile link said so I could at least figure out which portion of my link is incorrect. I can't figure out how else to get to my tbr without it having that my_lists designation.

Is there another way for me to get to my own TBR other than using the Account -> My Lists -> TBR Pile route?

I don't think you can share your TBR. I believe that you either need to tag all the books and link to the tag or make a book list with all the books in your TBR.

Britney is correct - you cannot link directly to your TBR pile.  You either have to create a tag and tag all of them and share that link or create a book list.

What Brittany & Mary said  yes  You will need to create a unique tag and link to the tag, or create a list under 'My Lists' and link from there.

And I just gave the directions for the tag list. 

Is there a way to export all the books into a booklist?  Can we make a spreadsheet and import it back in?
