View Full Version : Dumb Question

I have posted a few things on this forum. What I have found is that I get responses usually overnight. However, I continue to check each one periodically to see if anything new has been added. As time goes on and I do more posting this going back to check will become a very time consuming thing. Is there any way to tell if new comments have been added without actually opening an earlier post to check.

Thank you,
Jim

When a topic has a new post, I think it automatically goes to the top of the list. ;)

There is no such thing as a dumb question.

Some people try to remove rear brake drums for hours without success. You really need a puller.

Answer: Check number of replies beside your question.

Three years ago, there were so few people participating in the Forum, you could still find your post on the first page a week later. Now, there is so much activity, the web master has doubled the number of posts listed on a page and you still may find yesterday's post at the bottom of the second page.

You can use the search function at the top of this page. Type in your thread title and find it quickly or, click on your own screen name and, under "Basics" in your profile, click on "find all non-archived posts by Jimmie".

There was a feature here that enabled you to subscribe to a thread and receive an email when a post was added to that thread. There was a server problem and our web master got buried in the quagmire so the feature was deleted. Perhaps, if the problem has been solved, that option could be reinstituted.

If you look at the top right corner of the window, you will see the
text "you are logged on as" and below is your screen name in bold,
underlined and blue. If you click that, it will show you a list of
the last few posts that YOU have made. New posts will have a purple
folder next to it, old posts will be yellow.
