  • Latest forum quirk

    Recently I will post a new thread and then if I come back in a day or two there are no responses. No problem. But then I Notice I have a few new messages. So I go to check messages and when I click on one it goes to my thread where there were in fact responses that did not show up from the page itself.

    Not a big problem I guess, just another weird thing. Has anybody else experienced this?

    Yes, it's been noted by me under the forum discussion page. It happens every day, particularly on threads I have contributed to. Not sure why, but the threads are not being updated with the latest posts.

      Yup, I've also had posts that others mention in a different post and I get a p.m. notice (the bell next to my sign in). Bill

        This "new and improved" BB is just the opposite.

        Difficult, antiquated and unnecessarily complicated for folks like me to post simply and communicate with others made virtually unusable. I still have yet to post a photo...

          I havn't had this problem on the east side of the Atlantic, & posting a picture also works for me:

            Same here. Recently, some of my posts never made it onto the page.

              I believe Clark indicated earlier that, while posts and responses DO appear on the Forum, the actual "counter" only updates and loads at certain times.
              I don't know if this is the answer; but it's one.

                I have noticed a couple of times that posts I made did not show up. I assumed I had forgotten to hit the post button before I left the page.
