Not seeing threads I start

    Seem to be missing something on the Forum.

    When I log on and click on "New Posts" up near the top. I don't see the tread I stated yesterday. Seems the only way to see it is to click on my "screen name" in the box where it says "Welcome" then screen name. then I go to my "Statistics" and then "All posts" by myself. It shows up then so I know it made it into the system and shows it's had 4 views so others must be seeing it.

    Any help appreciated, as it is I'm not sure if when I reply to someone's post if they know I did reply at times.

    OK, A little more info just tried clicking on the "Quick Links" box near the top and then "Today's Posts" this does show my posts but I still don't see them when I click on "New Posts" even if I scroll down to see posts from others that were started two days ago. I can live with it if this is how the Forum is suppose to work just wondered if there was some setting I need to change to "View My Own Posts"?

    you won't see your thread as a "new post" as you've already seen it.

    Not until someone reponds then it should come up

    Guess that makes sense! Just need to make a little change in how I look at messages. Not a big deal but at least I know.

    I sometimes have that problem or trying to find a thread that I viewed once then five minutes latter want to see it again..

    As for starting a new post try this:
    Up at the top of the page where you are reading this click on the word Forms, see arrow below:

    Then scroll down to find the Forum that looks like the best one for your question or comment, A good general one would be "The Garage" click on that and when the next page opens up over to the right will be the "Post New Thread" button, see below.

    One note is until someone relies to you post it can be tricky to go back and see it. If you look around a lot on some pages you will see in small print the words "Resent Posts" if you can find that and click on it it will show a list that will have your post in it, at least that has worked for me!

    Had to try to find that spot, clicked on the "New Posts" up in the red banner above and it took me to this page:

    See red arrow over to the right? That is where you can click and go see the post you put up along with ones you may have viewed. Works for me hope it helps you!
