After log in-how to re view posts which I have started/contributed to?
« on: Thursday 30 November 17 15:34 GMT (UK) »
Hi, This seems a very simple thing but I am struggling. After I log in, how can I directly re read posts which I have started/contributed to?
I have just spent ages trying to re-read the responses to a post which I started a few days ago.
I have deleted the emails that had been sent notifying and linking me back to the post. So the method I eventually used was by searching key words from my post, and then working my way through list...which seems a very long winded way.
I have read through the 'how to' and realise this is probably obvious but I can't figure out a way
I am on a mac and I have screen grabbed my home page as I see it. If possible to give me directions to easily re access posts, which I have previously contributed to, would be great
Thanks in advance

The way I do it - others may have different ways - is to select Profile from the brown banner and then Summary.  This takes you to a new page & your user name should be on the left.  Under that is Show Posts.  'Messages' will show everything you have posted, 'Topics' shows the posts you have started.

If you click on your user name = fabfamily Tree - then a little drop down menu appears, and you can view your posts.

Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.

Thank you Jomot That has worked :-)

Unfortunately Bumble B That method doesn't work for me, I had tried, it might be a mac thing but my User name is not 'live' so no drop down menu

Thank you

The other way is via "Profile" from the banner under the poppies, then choose "Show Posts"

That only works for new replies, I think fabfamily Tree is trying to re-read replies.

I'm also on a Mac and the drop down method doesn't work for me either. If I click on my name I'm taken to my profile, then as the others have said, I click on posts.
