I know how to do it, and have never had a problem doing it.  Today I thought it was fishy that when on a book in my friend's WL the POST THIS BOOK button wasn't there.  So I clicked on the book and posted from there, really knowing I shouldn't have as once I left her WL I was in FIFO.  And I was...the book went to someone else.  Sadly, I cancelled.

So, I've tried accessing PBS and the bookshelves and WL's from Firefox, Opera, and IE.  The button I need is gone.  

Oddly, when I look at my own bookshelf, it is no longer in my view, but instead, it is in public view format.

Anyone else having a problem?

Oh, my.  You know, her SHELF is on hold.  I didn't think it carried over to her WL.  That sure was quick thinking, Deb.  I'll pm her now about it.

When you put your shelf on vacation-autorequest for the WL only works if you are #1.  So if she set it on autorequest but was further down the list-it would not let you post it to her.  (I learned this the hardway).
