'Show new replies to your posts'
« on: Tuesday 03 February 09 19:26 GMT (UK) »
I used to be able to click on the show new replies to your posts link at the top of the page and see a list of threads I had started/contributed to that had had new replies since I last read them. I have changed none of my options in my profle but it stopped working. I turned on some notification options in my profile but it still doesn't work.

I know I can go to my profile and click on my posts but the other link was better. Any suggestions anyone?

Hi Hazel,

Just to be certain:
have you had any new replies since the last time you saw a reply there ?

Once you have looked at a topic using this link, it will only reappear in the list if a new reply is made.

regards,
Bob

Hi Bob
Yes I have. The threads keep reappearing in the unread posts bit but not in replies to my posts bit if that makes sense. I read them and new posts are there.

Strange  ???

Can't think of anything at the moment, but I'll carry on thinking about it.

On the first page you get when you log in it thinks I have 10 less pms than I have then when I click enter rootschat the number corrects itself. Anything to do with the fact I'm permanently logged in on 2 laptops and I don't log off at all (just close down! - not on roots chat 24/7  :)).

Hi Hazel

The only time I have heard of this happening before is when someone - inadvertantly - had 2 similar user ids and got confused as to what was posted by which id. Otherwise - like Bob, I can think of nothing else at the minute

Well it has decided to work again today!  :)

Thansk for the help but now I have accidentally turned on the receive e-mail as notifications which I will turn off and hope it doesn't decide to turn this bit off too.
