This is how I have set my settings, set from my computer.  It arranges threads of posts by the time of the latest replies.

This is how I got there.

Log In

On right side of page, in blue, open EDIT MY PREFERENCES

Go to second tab, DISPLAY

SAVE,

Check box for LINEAR FORMAT, check box for size of text you want, and check a box for the type of date display you want.

SAVE

Open tab, GENERAL, and check box.

SAVE

Open tab, LINEAR LAYOUT and check box OLDEST FIRST and in replies per page, I put 50

SAVE

done.

 

Phone App is still not working. Phone still shows only initial post. No replies.

Good luck to all, I hope this stays the same for us that use the computer.

We only miss what could have been. I know I don't miss what it really was.

Still doesn't work for me.  When I go into 'preferences', the little circle goes round and round and round and then I eventually get the 'aw snap' 'kill pages' message...the two URL inside the box are the advertisements, too...not sure if that means anything, but those advertisements are doing quite nicely since the switch.  I'm going to try IE and see if that's maybe going to work.  I'm on chrome now.  Before the switch, I was at least able to get into Preferences through IE, even though it would accept anything I tried to do...I at least got in.

And, I found this post in October posts on page two. 

And when the switch took place and everything was messed up, I messed up my computer by uninstalling some things...and my computer has never been the same.  And some search engine, Babylon, overtook my computer (after uninstalling Firefox)...and now when I've tried to reinstall firefox, it doesn't work...there's like three search tool bars on it's front page and none of them can get me here, there, anywhere.

And WGO had posted in a 'miss you' message two days ago, and I never saw it 'til now...and I am so unhappy with all of this.

I tried through IE...and I still get the 'ivillage is unresponsive' and there is always a big red square overlying the big red ivillage at the upper left hand corner under where it says Hi,withclarity!

Maybe I should try starting a new account?

Hi Clarity! I don't understand all that stuff but I have internet explorer on my computer and everything now seems to be working as it should be.

I too am very upset that WGO's miss you post has been missed and that she hasn't had responses to it, that is really not good at all, I think that people haven't seen it, because I know that lots of us care deeply about WGO and would never have ignored her post!

I felt the same way when I saw that WGO's post from two days ago received no responses.  And what about newbies too...who come here desperate for support and no one sees their post.  

Didn't you have to change your account...and that's when you changed your name too...and things seemed better?

Hi Clarity! I couldn't even log in with my old name, and still can't, so I had no option but to change my name, and once I created a new account I could get into everything, see posts, reply, PM, the works, the only problem was things being out of order, but I've followed Rather's instructions and everything works perfectly. The only problem still existing is that older thread have most of the text missing, so if eg you go in to look at Iddy's threads, there is almost no text, which is a tragedy, all that invaluable advice, lostFrown

I tried to create a new account from Google Chrome and it wouldn't let me...kept bring me back to the create a new account box.  I tried with_clarity, but it would not take and thepassword box would be empty over and over again.  There was no 'red' that usually says, 'you must..."

So, here I am in IE, which runs slow as the dickens...and I'm going to try from here.  I'm afraid to sign out.  Well, if you don't see me ever again....

I know, I know, who asked for a running update.

Hi Clarity! What I have noticed is that there is a time delay, so when I log in ... put in my name and password, it goes back to the please sign in page ... and about 30 seconds to a minute later I am logged in and it says Hi Sogladitsanewday. So don't try and log in again because then you get the "you are not authorised to post messages" message, or user not verified. Just try registering a new name and give it a couple of minutes before you do anything!

I actually had to start a new email account to make this work...and I tweeked my name just a little...and I have lift off!  I can get into my preferences, but I'm not sure yet...this post will be the rest...if my avatar will show or my siggy, but I did check off 'recent posts first'...something like that...and I think things are in order.

Maybe that's what folks are going to have to do....start from total scratch and create new email account...what a PITA.
