Let's see if I can explain this. You know when you click on the outline view and it opens another window so you can see all the posts?Then you go to reply to one and it shows up in the original big window,which is hard to read with the outline window still open.Well if you go to to the url and put in the word outline where it says message it will open to one big window and when you reply,it will be in that same window.You won't have to have two windows open at the same time.

I forgot something.After you post,if you do it this way,just hit the back button and it will still take you back to the full page of messages.

I keep trying this but I keep going to another outline view. Is that what's suppose to happen? But I do see your original post on the bottom of this. Has that always been there when you post, like did I miss it or something, or is that what is suppose to happen. I like it though - now I can go back and reread the original post as I type. - Jessie

Never mind - when ever you do reply to a post the post you are replying to is at the bottom of the screen. So, Micki - I'm still confused as to what you are showing. I end up with a new window of the outline view. - Jessie

it is the outline view,but it keeps everything in one window instead of having the outline view window open at the same time as the original window.Try this,just click on the outline view and you'll notice it comes up in another window on top and a little beside of the original window.click on a post and you'll see it's hard to read it with the "view" window still open.If you enlarge that view window over the original window and click on posts,you won't be able to read them because they're beneath the enlarged "view" window.

By inserting outline into the url line it still enlarges the view window,but this time when you want to post or read a post it stays in the same window. You're right,the post you are repkying too will be at the bottom,but I think it makes it easier to remember what you're or who you're responding too.

I've probably confused the H**l out of everybody.If someone else knows what I'm trying to say,HELP!!(LOL)
