I used to be able to see the number of members who had a particular title on their wish list, but I can't find that anymore. Was that feature moved or taken down?

Thanks,

Michelle

Michelle,

If there is no Members wishing on a book details page, then there are copies in the system.

Michelle--

If there is a wishlist for the book, on the book detail screen, there will be a line in the book description showing the "Members Wishing".  This line won't be there if there is no one wishing for the book.

When you go to a particular book's page, if there are wishers for it, the number will be listed:

The Forgotten Garden

The link above takes you to the books page & currently show 400 people wishing :)

thanks. I will look again. I'm glad to know that feature isn't gone. It's a very useful piece of information.

If you are using the All Books search it will not show the # of wishers. It'll just say Post This Book if it's WL or 0 Wishers/0 posted.
