        Mine seems to be working fine, but I still can't see it anywhere but the website, so I assume they are still separate wishlists.  A couple of things I don't like, they didn't bring over the date added field and when you scroll to the bottom there's no way to go to the next page, you have to scroll back up to the top

         

        What is still broken on yours?

         

        On the website, the whole login thing is frustrating.  It knows it's me, I can see my name, but I have to log in to do almost anything.  I can understand logging to get to account features and to buy something, but to look at my wishlist?  You'd think it would remember me for longer than about 10 minutes, which seems to be the max, especially if I leave the site.

         

        BN should really have a panel of users to try out website and other changes, people who actually use the site.

          I only use the wishlist on the web site. At the top, it shows pages 1-2-3. If I try to go to the next pages, it jumps to 10-11-12. If I click the backward arrow it will let me see the previous page 9, then clicking either the forward or back page arrows it just jumps back and forth between pages 9-10-11 and 10-11-12. I really have no idea if I have any items on pages 4 - 8 because I can't get to them.

           

          I agree with you about having to scroll back to the top - it's annoying and poor web design. There should ALWAYS be a "back to the top" link which is just  Good Web Design 101.

           

          I have complained about lack of beta testing on this site many times before. It's just incomprehensible to me how these things go live apparently without any testing at all.

            I am having the same problem, but I have found a workaround solution.

             

             

            Go to your wish list and go to any page other than the first one - it will take you to the last page every time. In the address box, look for text that states pp=XX and p=X where X is numbers. The "pp" number is items per page that will show, the "p" is the page number of your wish list. For pages 2-9, enter a zero in front of the page number, "02" or "03", etc and press enter. It will then take you to that page on your wish list. Once you get to page 10, the wish list starts functioning properly again with the arrows and page numbers.

             

             

            Barnes & Noble software engineers - while/if you fix this, it is also annoying to page all the way down a wish list page and then have to go back to the top of the page to ask for the next page. The "print" wish list feature also only prints the current page of the wish list - not the entire wish list. You are making it very difficult to shop on your website.

             

             

            This post is identical to another Wish List problem thread. I just wanted to post my solution in both places in case people where only looking at one of the threads.

              Ever notice how B&N's response has always been, "just wait; we are redesigning the web site"?

               

              Also, ever notice how that only moves problems from one area to another?

               

              Also, ever notice how long the "redesign" takes?

               

              The problem is not the web site or other B&N software, per se.  The problem is B&N's software development staff.  Yes, their development process is broken (eg, inadequate testing), but that's only a symptom.

                bklvr896: ...but deleting with no warning.  What's up with that?

                I would be astounded if B&N ever gave any notice of future actions.

                  I agree it's not just the website. It's either a team that is incompetent or a corporate culture of incompetence. I quit turning on the wifi on my NSTs because every time they 'fixed' something with a firmware upgrade they broke other stuff that I actually used.
