View Full Version : Forum issue question

05-25-2018, 06:22 PM
When I log on to the site I always click on "New Posts" to view the current topics and also check for replies on threads I have started or replied to. On the New Posts page, on the left side of the screen, there is what I would call an envelope icon on each thread. On threads threads that I have posted on, there is a green arrow at the bottom right corner of that envelope. I have noticed that if I post something in the mechanic forum that I never get that green arrow notification, nor do posts from that forum show up on my New Posts page. Other peoples threads from the mechanic forum show up on my New Posts page, but not threads I start or reply to. I had overlooked a reply on a thread I started on that forum and then again today I went directly to that forum to look at another post and there was another reply on the thread that I started that didn't show up on the New Post page. Is there a setting that I can change on my end to include all forums?

Is that question about as clear as mud? Also, if this is not the correct forum to ask forum questions I appologize. Please move it wherever it needs to be. Thanks.

Dang, I just replied to your "Complex problem" thread there and it did not show up as a new post either. hmmmmm

Wait a sec. Just realized, if you read it already it won't show as a new post, cause you've read it. So now I dono.

And FYI, try the MyStuff link. That shows all the stuff you posted to in one place. Here's a direct link:
This is what I use.

If you read it, it's no longer "new"

so it won't be in the "New Posts" list,

if you refresh.

This MAY be what you're experiencing. dono for sure

Yeah, I figured that's how it worked.

It's working every single time you post now, but the original time you posted, it did not show up until you made the other post saying it didn't show up.
