Might as well make it a bit easier for ivillage to be able to look through one thread for issues rather than go through every individual thread.

My Issues

1. When I try to bring up a name to PM, say for instance Kathy...every Kathy on ivillage comes up BUT the Kathy I'm looking for.

2.  I like and miss my font colors

3.  Can't search for old threads...and I really need to in order to hold someone's words against them...hah Kidding!

4.  I don't like that we cannot tell if a new respond has come into a post I've already read.

5.  There is no mention of who the CL of the Board is...I don't know why they took away the "CL" in front of the name a while back either.

That's all I got, but I never really knew how to navigate through anything else anyway.

From my phone:

I cannot view anything more than the original post

I can only access PMs by opening a post and pretending I want to send that poster a PM by clicking on send Clarity a PM for example, then i can view inbox

I cannot logoff

In both phone and computer I cannot tell if a PM has been read and I havent received a PM from best PM buddy so am unsure if PM not working properly or if I should be concerned about her....needless to say I am concerned

Thanks Clarity

Hi Clarity,

I’m having the same problems via my phone where most times I cannot access the website at all and other times I can get in but can only read the first post and not the replies.

I’m doing some tests via my laptop on posting, reading and PMing.


Whether you think you can or you think you can't you are probably right. A parrot can repeat what it has learned but the mark of true intelligence is applying what is learned.

Quick reply doesn't work for me (I'm on my PC using google chrome)

I'm not receiving email notifications of posts to threads I've posted on

I don't like that posts aren't in order of most recent post like they use to be

I really don't like that it's been like a ghost town on EAS since the changes were implemented.

I have the exact same issues as Hopeful2012.

I did figure out how to get it to work on my desktop (had to install Google Chrome). So, now, everything seems fine on my desktop except that I can't see if someone has read my PM or not.

Still can't see replies on my phone.  I assume you are supposed to click ont he little green icon that shows the number of replies but that does nothing for me.

It seems to be running OK with Google Chrome, wish I could see Clarity's green font , her name in purple and her avatar...

I can't log in on my phone, (Blackberry).  If I'm not logged in, all I can see is the original post.

I don't know if someone has read a PM I sent

Edited to add:

I went to my Edit Preferences page and changed the following:

On the Preferences - general tab, check the box that states Sort topics by time of most recent post.  That should solve the problem of threads not in order

On the Preferences - Private Messenger Tab: There are boxes for enable PM and enable email notifications

On the account tab: I had to reload my avatar (I loaded a new one) :  This does not show which thread is new.  ut if you click a thread and go back to Ending your Affair Supprt or here new posts are shown with little rays of sunshine around the text bubble icon

You're having better luck than I am Happy.

I tried to edit my preferences but when I click SAVE it gives me an error message that my name is already taken...all I'm trying to do is click the box to sort by most recent post, enable email notifications and upload a new pic. 

Ugh...this is really frustrating!!!!

Just as an FYI - I tried using both Internet Explorer and Chrome, to see if I could at least fix some of the issues with my preferences, and neither worked.  Both ended up not loading and crashing for me.

Firefox is working fine for me as far as seeing posts, and replying to posts - but I'm not able to change any of my settings there without getting that same error message.
