Getting to the boards
Wed, 01-09-2013 - 11:00am
I don't want to continue to complain, but again, this is why people aren't coming to the boards, they can't find them! The main boards, I can't get to come up with teh sub boards, not the pregnancy & parenting, not the health & fitness, nothing. And yes, I have tried resetting eveyrthing, clearing my cache, using IE and FF. Unless I have them set in my favorites, which I am sorry, I can't "favorite" every board I would like to visit, I can't get to any boards except the ones I have started threads on so that I can go through my user name. And I can't even get to my history on the side bar, I have to go through my user profile in a thread I've posted. Seriously, I know I am talking to people who care about the boards and are trying to get stuff done, but WTH! And on another note, is there a reason in our posting history we can't see aything we've commented on, only the threads we've started? Its very frustrating not to be able to see activity in threads I've replied to but not started unless I go check that board, which I can't get to, and I can't subscribe to anything because even if that function was working (which it very well might be), but since I can't edit my preferences, I wouldn't know. And yes, I got the email about the work around, but I'm sorry, but I am not creating a new email address just because IV can't get its $$$$$ together to get the boards working. Ugh.

Hi Tracy -

We're currently experiencing some issues with log in and extreme slowness—however I did pass along your comments.

As for the signature, you don't need to create a new one, you just need to change it temporarily to something else. Add a dash or something, if you'd like. :)

Thank you,

As an old-timer, it is frustrating to me.

I can't even begin to imagine what it's like for those relatively new to the Boards...:(...

Every day I try to go to the Heart Health Board as I am the CL there.

It's really discouraging how great we were told they would be but it's not happening.

Sometimes I have to sign in multiple times, posting is not easy, I miss a lot of things...

Hi Lorie,

Have you tried bookmarking your board URL? Also, you can find a list of the Health, Diet, and Fitness boards here:

I hope this helps,

The problem seems to be gone for the moment, but its happened several times since hte change over so I it may very well happen again. I can't bookmark sites on my work computer, the individual boards were working just fine if you could get to them, but it was the main board, the full main board and then the main board for each one such as parenting and pregnancy that weren't working before, so unless you have EACH and every single board you visit bookmarked, you couldn't.

Hi Tracy,

I'm glad it is working for you now.    I know this has been an issue off and on for a while now and it is so frustrating (especially if you don't have the ability to bookmark on your computer at work!).  I just checked again this morning and it all seems to be loading fine at the moment. I am able to see all of the boards listed for all channels (I'm in Firefox right now).   If you are seeing anything different, will you please let us know?

I haven't had any problem with the front pages since last week, and I am staying signed in more often than not now on my work computer, which is definitely progress!! But i will be sure to let you know if something stops working. ;0)
