A couple of things:

When the update happened my RSS feed quit working.  Had to go back to the main forum page and subscribe to “All RSS” again.  Now it’s working fine.  (This is true on all computers I access from so it is likely an issue for everyone.)

Is there any way there can be a separating line on the left column next to the posts (where the poster’s name appears)?  There is a line that separates the post windows themselves, but the left margin has nothing and that makes it a little hard to see who is posting as things in that column tend to just run together.  The visual line just helps keep the eye from being so confused!

I thought the ‘flying up page’ was fixed but it is not..  :(  I’m glad to know yours is doing it too, Leah’s Mom,  so I know it is not just me.

Is the page finished loading before you’re trying to reply?  When you open a topic from most recent topics (several links on front page), it goes to the last comment and sometimes it takes a minute for the page to load even if you have read the comment and clicked Reply by that time.

 

As far as the line dividing posts and member area…are you talking about a line between the members?

@ Cindy:

Re the line, I’ll try to describe what I mean…hopefully it makes sense:

Looking at the post window, just above the post, there is the “post number”, a “link icon”, a “print icon”, etc.  Just above those, there is a horizontal dividing line separating it from the previous post.

What I’m hoping for is to extend that horizontal line all the way left across the left column that identifies the date, time and person posting.  So to say it another way, I’m looking for a horizontal line just above the post date & time in the left column that would separate it from the previous person’s post.

[Now you really couldn’t actually extend that line as it is the same color as the left column background color so you wouldn’t see it unless the line was a different color.  Hope that all makes sense!]

Hi every one.

Leahs mom,

it made sence. It is more confusing than it used to be but if that’s the way it has to stay I am getting used to it. I have had a little “flying” up and or scroll issues but I am not entirely sure it isn’t just me.

I do know I tried to post this morning and it wouldn’t let me. Then I tried to PM a message to MaryB and apparently PM’d myself!

Again, my first time blogging has been this site,  (not entirely true, but I gave up on the last one in about 3 days) so I am learning and don’t know what is “me” and what is due to the upgrade.

Dee,

I have had that happen where I lost a posting I was in the middle of, but it has always been when I minimized the CITR to check an email I heard coming in or spell check a word. I get in a hurry and X out or something instead of minimizing. I am pretty sure it’s something I am doing in my case.

I hate it when that happens hissy-fit

I don’t think “it” is keeping up with posts either. This one said last poster was MaryB 10 hours ago, but when I got here CindyP and Leahs mom had posted since Mary, and MarB’s post was at 11:21………………only about 2 hours ago.

Just mentioning it.

How is that for dividing posts and posters…a little bit better?

I noticed the time differences (and am looking into it), but the posts and posters have been correct.  If the front page of the forum is open (say you click over to your email or another but leave the forum open), it doesn’t refresh by itself to bring up the last posters, you actually have to refresh the page (or I just click Chickens in the Road just below Search…that takes you to the front page of the forum).

The flying issue I am not seeing where it can be the forum…make sure the page is completely loaded, especially in IE.

This was a very new and large update through Simple Press (they’re the builder of the forum setup).  A couple things were missed by mistake, they took some things out that many people really liked but are now working on adding back in, and a couple bugs have been discovered that weren’t before they let it go live to everyone.  Even though the front (what you see) looks like it was a huge change, everything that’s happening in the background was an even bigger change.  From the time they built it, they’ve just been adding on and adding on.  Now was the time for a major overhaul so they could continue to add components that people are begging for.  It was just getting too huge and they started from scratch with better technology on the ground floor so bigger and better things can happen (not all the time is it something you can see, but what happens in the background that makes it nice).

I seem to be having a couple of issues with posts.

1.  When I click on the icon to bring up the new posts in a forum it sometimes will not open the last page where the lastest posts are?

2.  When I have finished looking that the lastest posts they still show in the box.  Gets kind of confusing when you think you have read all of them and they are still showing.  Once I click out of it and come back they are gone.

I hope I have made sense here.

Mamajhk,

1.  Is it bringing you to the last post you have read or is it going to the very first post?

2.  When you click out of it, you are actually refreshing.  The forum isn’t set up on an automatic refresh at this point.
