After I post, I use my browser's back button to get back to the list of threads. It takes at least three clicks of the button to get back, and the time to wait for it to reload. Is there a faster way of going back after posting?

Up on the menu bar it says "view new posts" if you click that it will take you to all the posts since your last log-in. Once you have read them they become lighter in color than the ones you haven't read yet.

This is what I do so that I don't have to go back all the time:

1) Go to view new posts

2) Right click on a post you want to view

3) Select "open in new window".

4) This opens a new window for that post so when you're done, you "x" out that post and the "view new posts" window is right there as you left it.

5) Repeat steps 1-4 as many times as necessary :)

celiac3270,

That must be how you sometimes reply back to my posts less than 30 seconds after I have made my post! :lol:

God bless,

Mariann

Thank you celiac3270! :) I use view new posts every time I log on, so I knew about that feature. I just didn't know how to go from reading on post to the next without wasting valuable reading/posting time waiting on my browser.

:lol: Thank you again, celiac3270! This is so much easier and less time consuming! I should have asked sooner! <_<

Thank you, thank you!!! I was doing the same thing as Mariann and had started visiting other sites, even tho this is my favorite, in desperation. The back botton had become so-o-o slow. Now I can enjoy my favorite site again. You are a great help to those of us who are learning; the computer, as well as about gluten-free living. Granny

celiac3270,

Where does it say "open in new window"? After I click on the post I want to read it just goes right to it. I have an apple it doesn't have a right and left click only one click.

Also what do you do if when you click view new post and it shows there have been tons of new posts that you haven't seen yet, but at that time you don't have time to read them all? Cause seems the next time you sign on, the computer assumes you have read those posts and so when you click view new posts it only shows you the new new posts not the other new posts that you didn't read last time......Did I explain that well?

Yep...this method works pretty well--there's a slightly faster version, too. What I do is the open new window thing, but then I minimize the window while it's opening. Then I do open new window again, but mimimize the new window when it comes up. I do this until all the posts I want to read are open. This way you save the time of even waiting for one window to open because by the time you've done all that, the first few topics are loaded. Then you can really just read and close, read and close...that's about as fine tuned as my posting and reading strategy is :D

I see your points, but I've only used a mac once or twice ever so I don't really know the answer to the first one. On a PC there are two mouse buttons (left and right) with the left one doing what you described, just opening up the link. When you right click on a link, though, it brings up a menu with the options to open the link, open the link in a new window, save target as, print target, and a host of other options.

With the second question, I usually go to today's active topics, because then you see all the posts for the day, but the ones you haven't opened yet have the bright blue envelope and the ones you have opened have the faded envelope icon next to it. This way you know which ones to read...

    • I figured I would update those who were wondering.  I have gotten the appt. so far moved up to August 30. I am waiting to have gene testing done via swab for all 3 of my kiddos tomorrow. My daughters celiac antibodies came up negative but her IgA is low which the ped said could cause false negative antibodies for celiac so she will need to see a GI dr. also. The pediatrician is going to call the GI to try to get them in sooner. I am keeping them all on a gluten diet until the GI dr. decides what to do. I am on the cancellation list already for my son, however I am not going to be persistent with my phone calls to them until I have the results of the gene test. I really want that result in my hand before going to the GI dr if I can. Maybe if he is positive, along with his bloodwork and my history they can forgo the endoscopy. But he will eat gluten till then.  My husband and I have been very honest and upfront with him as to what is going on and the possibility of the endoscopy and what that entails and although scared in general he seems ok after assuring him that since I have it he has me to help him every step of the way.  Going through his current diet with him I realized that he is truly on such a low gluten diet that I am actually surprised his bloodwork shows antibodies at all!  So I told him to make a list of allllll the gluten he could possibly think of eating and he needs to pound it until the GI visit or endoscopy. Funny thing is everything he keeps thinking of to want to eat...is already gluten free!  The other night we were at a friends and he asked if he could be done with his hotdog. I made him finish just the bread 😂 Thanks for your help and advise and I will keep y'all posted on both kids!  My oldest is a ok as far as all his antibodies. Just actually had a follow up for other immune issues and all his levels are now normal!
    • I like your plan Cara, I may have to include it in my sons.    Poor little guy is still very very sick. I think he is resisting and cheating, despite having the support of two other siblings and a 100% gluten-free home. 
    • Despite it being a nightmare, I did wait for my kids to get biopsies. At one point I had one severely ill child gluten-free and two more waiting having to eat it. It was worth the wait though and I think long term a biopsy may be worthwhile, especially for school. I have already had issues with schools and camps so having a firm diagnosis has been helpful. 
    • Knowing that the reaction to gluten in celiacs is an uncalled for immune system reaction, I was thinking of how a cure would be possible. Maybe a medicine that somehow turns off the immune system. The only thing that i've heard do that... HIV.  obviously that's way worse than celiac. Just some food for thought.
    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.
