Here are the main ways that members keep track of their forum life. (It makes more sense once you start using it, but here is is, just in case!)
Or, if you post a message, make sure the 'Email me...' box is ticked underneath (like the 'subscribe' box on the old site). (You can control whether this is pre-ticked, on your My Settings page)
Quite helpful being able to remind yourself of recent post conversations from your own page as well as your PMs.
Glad you like it - and looking forward to launch!
Is there a quick way to see in a forum which threads you've subscribed to? I liked it on the old site where the threads I'd subscribed to where highlighted...
i appreciate I can go into "My Posts" to work it out but I liked to see it in the forum too.
we've just built a new 'followed threads' page, which shows all the threads you're subscribed to, with the most recently replied-to ones first
Let me know if it works?
Sometimes I forget to log on first and post a comment it then asks me to sign up for babyexpert.
If I sign in instead I lose the message that I've just typed. Wouldn't it be easier if you had the option got sign up or sign in after you posted the message so that you can continue to post it without having to retype in?
Another point I forgot to mention yesterday.
I used to type my messages in Microsoft Word and then copy and paste into a post on the site. As there are so many people to reply to at times I need to read back a couple of pages.
I've tried this with the new site and I keep getting HTML, I tried using the unlink button but it doesn't work.
both good points - thanks. We're working on the pasting-messages bug (hopefully that'll be fixed early next week at the latest), and I'll add the log-in poin to the list.
Have you tried the new 'followed threads' page and the edit-message function btw - are they working okay?
Yes I've tried both and they are working fine
