"view New Posts" Button

Recommended Posts

My view new posts button appears to have dissapeared, which is weirding me out a little bit, because that's how I navigate the site! Is this happening to everyone? Mods, do you know anything? Please tell me it isn't permanent!


Gluten Free since 10/07

Mildly Lactose Intolerant, slight intestinal symptoms after eating milk products, but easily corrected with lactase enzyme

Endometriosis- DX'd 5/07

Gluten Antibodies- "negative"...don't know exact numbers, am highly suspicious...

DXed celiac 12-19-07 via genetics/elimination diet- DQ2 allele

Brother with Celiac, aspergers...his tests were all negative (he didn't have genetics done), including endoscopy, but he definitely is at the least gluten intolerant...highly suspect my mother has it as well- she has hyperthyroid, fibromyalgia, hemochromatosis, and now colon cancer, and she has been weak and exhausted and just generally sick. She's going to get tested.

Same here. I'd hate that to be gone forever!

Work in Progress....

Not sure what's going on, but some mods have "veiw new posts" in a new location (upper left) and other (as in me) don't have it at all.

Give it some time and perhaps it will work out....I hope. It leaves me dead in the water.

Mine is there - but hidden behind the right side of the forum (to the very right of my assistant/my friends/new messages) I can see some letters - clicked on it, and it brought me to "view new posts" page. But its certainly not where it should be.

I have M C ( for MyControls) and N P (for New Posts) vertically on the right side of the white part of the screen . . . like it ran out of room. When I click on N P, I get the new posts.

Scott - mine still looks like this, and I have cleared/refreshed/etc.

WHAT new post button? I have never ever ever seen a "new post button."

Directly to the right of a bolded "My Controls" it says "View New Posts" and by hovering my mouse over those words I discovered it is a live link, which no one would ever guess by just looking at it.

But this is not a change from my first day on the forum. It has never been any other way. I am flabbergasted that everyone else seems to have "buttons." :o:huh::blink:

I don't know why anybody says there are actual buttons there, because there aren't. But all those things on that bar are links, and always have been. Knowing a little about programming, it was obvious to me from the beginning that those were links, but I suppose for someone who has never done any programming, it might not be so obvious.

And somehow I never did see those changes people are talking about. Maybe I was just not around when the problems occurred!

I was wondering the same thing. I use the "view new posts" link all the time and doesn't appear to have changed for me (I use IE 7, different browsers can make a difference). I've never seen a button.

Since this might just be jargon, a button to me means something that you click, usually outlined with a box and perhaps a graphic. For example, while creating this, I have links at the top and I can actually select and copy the text. I also have an "Add Reply" button that I can't select and copy the text from.

There are no "buttons" - just links.

Last night when some members were having board format issues, I sent Scott a snapshot of what my board view was, since it seemed to mirror some of problems that others were having, as well. Within about five minutes, he had resolved the issue.

Three cheers to Laura!!! :lol::lol::lol:

I just couldn't convince Scott that I had no "buttons"

Maybe your screen looks different than mine, but to me "obvious links" are blue and underlined as in the two AdSense ads near the top of the page. What I see is neither blue nor underlined. All I have is plain charcoal text that looks no different in any way other than maybe a slightly different font from what I am typing right now before I get fancy and change the font color to indigo.

I didn't see any of this happening either because I was at work. :P

The reason it was obvious those are links is, that there would be no other reason for the bar saying things like, 'My Blog", My Controls" etc. And most links won't be underlined until you hover your mouse pointer over them.
