How do I add items to a list?
There are several ways you can add items to your lists. On your My Wishpot page, next to the list graphic click, "Add items". There are 4 ways you can add items to your Wishpot lists. 

1. Add items from anywhere on the web: The simplest way to add items is to download the Wishpot Button. It is simple to add to the Wishpot Button to your browser and it doesn't contain spyware. Once the Wishpot button is added, just click the Add to Wishpot Button whenever you're on a webpage anywhere on the web that has an item you want to add to a list. If you prefer not to add the browser button, you can manually add a Bookmarklet to your bookmarks or favorites that works just like the Add to Wishpot button. 

2. Add items you see on Wishpot: If you see something you like on Wishpot, click the "Add to Wishpot" link beside the product to add it to one of your lists. In this same way you can add items you find through our search bar. 

3. Add items via your mobile phone: You can add items to your list using your mobile phone by sending an email to Wishpot. When you send an e-mail the subject of the message is the wish title, the body of the message becomes the notes, and the attached picture becomes the wish graphic. Enter a secret word and Wishpot will generate a new private email address. 

4. Manually add a new item: Click "Add an item manually"; Select the list you'd like to add the new item to, fill in the form and click 'Add'. This new item is great for customizing wishes; request your favorite homemade dish, funds, or even a hug! If you'd like to add your own graphic to the item you can do so with the Wishpot Button see #1.
