I used to have no problem rearranging my books in my lists, but now this function isn't working. I can add a book, but it just sits at the bottom of the list. I've tried the instructions from PBS that are at the top of the lists, but these don't work either--at least, not for me. Is anyone else having this issue? Has someone else found a workaround?

I've contacted PBS about it a few days ago, but I still haven't heard a peep back. I wonder if this is yet another feature on this site that'll fall by the wayside.

I have had that same problem periodically ever since I first started using  'my lists' occasionally a few years ago. No rhyme nor reason about when it happens. 
But earlier this week I had problems adding titles to a list at all.

Hmmm. Do you ever get the sense that all these features that used to work and haven't been fixed over the last few years are indicators that maybe the site isn't as stable as it once was? That maybe PBS's days are numbered? Just wondering.

I've wondered that for some time, but I hang in there and will probably be here either until its end or mine.

I worked with my lists yesterday and could never get the move function to work.

I can't get the pages to even load.  It just buffers and I give up.  You only have to look at the number of available books at the top of the page to see that this site has lost a lot of support.  It appears that the games are where the interest is at now.  The Bazaar is full of people trying to sell credits.

Still not working and can't find a workaround. Oh well. Another feature bites the dust.

I can move one book at a time on the book lists. Then I have to save and go back and then open to edit again. 

This is on my PC. I cannot do it on my iPad or iPhone but the screens and buttons are too small to use and work on it that way anyway.

That's great, Linda! I'm gonna head over there now to see if at least I can do that much.

Update: Nope. Nothing works for me. sad I'm using my laptop. But I wonder if browsers have anything to do with it? I'm on Firefox.

Regina, I am using Firefox and am able to move books on lists, but just like Linda I can only move one book at a time.  I don't often use that feature though so it's not a big deal to me.  I'm sorry you are having so much trouble with it.

Yeah, I don't think browsers make a difference. Bummer.

I mostly use Firefox.  I can delete a book at a time from my lists easily but just never know when the 'move' function will work.

I don't have a problem removing books either or even adding them back on. But I still can't move them. frown Oh well. Definitely a first world problem. wink
