HINT for navigating the new boards!

If you click on the "Outline View" option when you come to these boards, it will open up a separate window that's much more user-friendly. You can see the entire length of the title, and all the responses under it. It IS a little slow to come up, but your patience will be rewarded.

I agree that the Outline View is more acceptable, but it's still slow and cumbersome. I put in a suggestion with iVillage to link the Folders to their own Outline view so that it loads faster and you don't have to browse through EVERYTHING on the boards. Hopefully they will take that suggestion into consideration. I think it would be a big help.

And the CLs have been begging for a WEEK to get each MESSAGE to get it's own outline view so we could see all the responses (in their proper order!) instead of all the numbers at the bottom. We'll see if it happens.

Ooh! Ooh! This is even better!!

This might help....I got this tip from another CL who got it from another CL, etc....

In the URL where it says "message" change that to "outline" and where it says "&msg" change "msg" to "tig".

Viola, outline format. If you just click on "Outline View" at the top of the page, it opens the outline in a pop-up and you can't refresh it, but this way you can and it looks just like the old board. You can even search on keywords and usernames this way too to find a post you were responding to.

Way cool eh??

No problem - the URL is the website address. If you are using Internet Explorer, it should be in the long white box next to Address at the top of your screen. I don't have Netscape or AOL, so I can't tell you exactly where it is from there, but it looks something like this:

http://messageboards.ivillage.com/n/mb/message.asp?webtag=iv-ppworkpump&msg=36260.1&ctx=0

(PS - I tried the trick, and it actually is helpful. Good luck!)
