I've heard a few people mention that they're only can see new threads, not replies, so I'm starting a new thread to answer more questions, just to be safe.

Have I shared the thread where you can check for updates on various bug fixes? I'm starting to forget who I've told what, lol. Is it Friday yet?

http://www.ivillage.com/forums/ivillage-women/around-ivillage/ivillage-help/ivillage-help/message-board-fixes-updates#new

Okay, here are some additional questions I've seen- if you don't see yours answered, please don't hesitate to ask again. I'm trying to make it to each of my boards at least once a day but am also answering people through email and PM's too. Smile

Changing Font Colors: It's a feature that they will have to build and add on later.(After all the major bugs and other craziness dies down). I agree, it was nice to have.

Editing a Post: Yep, you should be able to edit your own post. I just tested it in a non-moderator name and was able to.

Replying to Yourself: This is on the list of 'known bugs"

Newest to Oldest Not Sticking: is this for replies (where it says "Views replies by", right next to "itmes per page".) or for threads? (the option that appears under "thread options"). Unforunately, I don't have a time frame for it to start "sticking". It's definitely on the list of bugs but probably not as high of a priority as fixing all the issues on the mobile site, for example. 

Speaking of issues on the mobile site... I don't own an iPad (sniff!) so I don't have a lot of first-hand knowledge about the issues but I do know it's pretty high on the priority list. I also found a thread about it on the iVillage Help board :

http://www.ivillage.com/forums/ivillage-women/around-ivillage/ivillage-help/ivillage-help/mobile-site-fixes#new

Threads remembering where you left off: aka, "thread memory". Jessica Dukes, our Community Director talked aobut a "Mark as New/Mark as Read" feature in the thread I linked to above but I *think* what you're asking about is different, right? To me, "mark as new/red", is what you can select for whole threads but "thread memory" is for the actual messages in a thread, and it remembers for you where you left off. I'll be sure to ask about it!

How to Bookmark a board in Chrome: scroll down the board a bit, at the bottom of the list of threads, you'll see "see all threads on this board". Click on that. You'll then see "Board Options"- mouse over that and in the drop down menu you'll see the option to subscribe.

Subscribe: It's a feature where if you are subscribed to a thread, you'll receive an email when a new reply is posted. Unfortunately, it's currently not working but it's definitely on the "known issues" list.

As always, thanks so so so so much for your patience! Things are getting better everyday. I know a major bug was fixed just today (login issues using Internet Explorer were fixed).

I'm actually getting more frustrated with these boards ::sigh::
I understand it's the weekend & few if any are working to solve problems.

I went to IE to see if *subscribe* would work & had to log in *again* ::sigh::
And of course it did not.

Perhaps you could start a new post on the *How to subscribe*
Step by step & all the places/options to find *thread options*, subscribe & what not.

We are still missing boardies as they too are still having problems reading replies & signing in ..
Regardless what browser they are using
I still can't see replies on my ipad :(


Thanks for your help :)

You only see it at the top of the thread..you'll see the page numbers, (1,2,etc), then you see "next", "last". Then all the way to the right of that you see "thread options".

I was using Chrome. Keep trying intermitently and see if you can get it working for you (in Chrome). It often doesn't look like it's doing anything when I hit subscribe- sometimes I don't even get the subscription successful message- but the threads have been showing up for me under Tab 2 in "my bookmarks and subscriptions".

Annoying having to subscribe to each thread separately. Hope we get the option working again where you only have to click on Subscribe once and it will work for all threads. Now I'll see if the ones that I subscribed to will actually work in email. And the beat goes on..lol! Odd that we have these other posting options and no color. I expect..or hope..it will be coming soon.

Edit: Oh, and in Quote, it has too much HTML stuff showing in it.

That's a good idea about starting a new thread about "How to Subscribe". I think I'll wait a few more days to see if we can get it working consistently first, though.

ETA: I also now see the extra HTML stuff when quoting. I'll be sure to pass that along.

I've also been getting pop up ads. Very annoying.  Didn't happen before.
