I don't see any indicators of all threads being pinned. Does this mean they're finally not anymore?

One issue I just ran into, is I clicked New Content (after making a few replies) and although it said there were 20 topics, the list was empty. So I clicked my bookmark for the new content, and the topics got listed.

No, it means that you are looking at the "New Content" view where the pin indicator is not showing. That is something we are working on, cuz we need that back.

This was a major upgrade--many things have changed. The look and feel is different and we all all feeling our way round, including the moderators.

There have been a number of issues identified. Some of them have been resolved, and others are still being worked on. Please bear with us as we work them out. Ask questions and post issues here. We will do our best to address them.

I can't even imagine how much work this must be for you. Okay, you've convinced me . . . I'm holding out all good faith that the boards become a little more user friendly again.

Thank you for all you do for all of us.


Gluten Intolerant with double HLA-DQ6. Pre-diagnosis: Weight gain, swelling, diarrhea, mouth sores, back pain, body aches, fatigue, muscle weakness, BRAIN FOG, runny nose, recurrent sinus infections, bruising, low white cell count (whole life), and more. My feet were so bad, I could hardly walk. Toward the end: Chronic Vit. D deficiency (almost no D in my body despite a quality multi-vit. each day).

There is hope! Gluten-free since Sept. '09, and I have my life back - I feel better than in many, many years!

Hang with us Lyn, we're gettin' there . . . :D

OK . . . I've spent a little more time with the "Watched Content" box.

First scenario: If you click on the "Topics" tab and you don't see your any of your subscribed threads but you see the "toggle topic with no new" button, this means none of your watched threads have any new posts.

Second scenario: If you click on the "Topics" tab and there is at least one thread listed, all of these threads listed have new posts. At this point, if you hit the toggle button (now at the bottom of the list of threads with new content), you would switch to all the other threads that you watch that DON'T have new posts. Hitting the toggle button again brings you back to the threads with new posts. If you select one of these threads that have new posts, it WILL take you to the first UNREAD post. Once you leave that thread, that thread name will be moved to the list of watched threads that have no new posts. (Note that if you use the back arrow to return to the watched content box, you will not see the updated thread list).

OK . . . As far as I know, I think the only way to access the Watched Content is from the home page. So the quickest way back to the Watched Content box is to probably hit "forum home" at the bottom of the page under the last blue border stripe.

Now, it strikes me that the toggle button should probably say "toggle topic with no new" when you are on the page with threads with new posts AND "toggle topic with new" when you're not. I'll ask Scott, but I might not fully understand this feature and it might be right as is.

If Watched topics were lost during the upgrade process, I'm sorry about that--there is no way to get them back so you'll have to find the topics again and add them to your watched topic list.

Is there a consensus that there is a bug in the Watched Topics function? Can you add lot's of topics and get the notifications? Please PM me if you are experiencing problems with it.

FYI: You can now log into this forum with your Facebook account--keep in mind that any posts you make will be under that different personality--and I am trying to fix a bug where you can import your Facebook info, pics, etc., directly into an existing account here.

Take care,

Scott

Thank you! I'm so happy to learn this!!!!! :)

Just an FYI: My browser (Explorer) doesn't show "toggle topics with new," instead it just says "toggle topics with" -- the "new" doesn't show. If others view it this way as well, that may be adding to the new post confusion.

FYI: This may not be related to anything mentioned here, but one known bug is that when you are on the forum's home page:

https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/

there is a button that, at least in the Fire Fox browser, appears in the center of the top-right advertising banner. This button will change your home page view so that you can view new topics.

I just wanted to mention that, and that bug should be fixed soon.

Take care,

Scott

I have noticed when I am typing a response that I can not always see all of the text on a line. The advertisements seem to me to be getting in the way. Also if I happen to proof read my response before posting and I find an error, if I go back up to an area to fix, it the box seems to "jump" and you can not see where your cursor is. You have to scroll down to find it. This happens to me when I edit also. It is very distracting.

I've noticed that the time for all my posts is off by one hour. I have double-checked my settings, and all is correct. So I'd have to guess either the board or the server is off.

hmm, mine are correct. Maybe there's a daylight savings time box that's improperly checked in your time zone.

The DST setting is what I expected to be incorrect, but it's not. It reports the correct offset from GMT, which is why I figure the server time might be off. I'd have to set the wrong time zone in order to compensate.

I suppose, depending on the time zone of the server, some users might see the correct time.

I am seeing correct times on my posts and those by others. I am in the Eastern time zone. The server operates on Pacific time.

Well, I've checked and double-checked my settings. Just looked now, and I noticed it said that the DST setting is automatically set when you load the board index. So I went to that page. If this post has the correct time, then going to the index page is the key to having the correct setting.

<EDIT>

Yep! That was it! Strange. And I thought I'd loaded that page the first day I saw the new format.

Okay, RiceGuy, I need your help here. I sent Scott an email about this problem. My time is not adjusted for daylight savings either. BUT, what the heck is the index page and how do you get there??

Okay, didn't know that was called the Index Page. And that's the one that has the incorrect time in the lower right corner. I can highlight it, but I can't change it.

To access your time settings, look at the top right where your user name is. Click the downward-pointing arrow to the right of it and choose "My Settings" from the pull-down menu. After making changes there, reload the index page. That should get it sorted.

Can you tell me what kind of browser software you are using, and what version of it? Also, are you on a Mac or PC platform? Are others having this issue?

I can't reproduce this and I have the same setup here at work and at home. I wonder if this could be your browser's security settings? Be sure that you are not blocking cookies, and that you security settings are at the default levels.

Any way there can be a topic called 'what happened to my posting'? That way if something needs to be deleted or removed we would know where or why it disappeared.


1960s-had symptoms-could have been before but don't remember

1970s-told had colitis or nervous stomach-was given phenobarbital, felt great but still had symptoms

Me, dd and ds diagnosed with Lactose Intolerance

2000-osteopenia

2001-had stroke because of medications I was given

June 2003-saw Chiropractor who specialized in nutrition: Celiac Disease not Lactose Intolerance, went gluten free with once in awhile cheating, off soy and dairy for about 6 months

June 2003-found excellent doctor for fibromyalgia (who has found out she has Celiac Disease)

May 2006-went gluten free with NO cheating-excellent! Made all the difference in the world
