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).

Hey Lisa,
I haven't even tried to subscribe to anything last serveral days.
I find things going from bad to worse here ::sigh::

I know all about tech & my prayers go out to them :)

Neverstopping- Does it "stick" for you for to you have to make the window bigger each time?

Hugss- I jinxed myself, lol. One of my subscriptions is now titled " content posts" too. But then, the next subscription I entered had the correct title - go figure.

Yay on it working! Booooo on it not sticking!! I will DEFINITELY pass this along so they can add it to their "stuff that isn't sticking" list. 

You get the "email already taken" when you try to edit your preferences, correct? If so, that bug is #2 on our tech team's priority list, right behind the bug that is keeping some members from seeing replies. Unfortunately, Hurricane Sandy will be hitting the area where our New York office (and tech team!) are which will probably cause some additional delays. Undecided

<<,When one goes in to edit for email notifications,Why do posts that I have subsctibed to ..

Have instead of the post name .. changed to *content post*?
Makes it hard to find posts I need to change/edit ::sigh::>>

Hmm..mine doesn't do that, it keeps the post name. I will definitely pass that on. Same thing for the email notifications- mine seem to be bringing me to the latest post, not the last one in the thread but I will also pass this on since it's probably happening to other people as well.

More questions please Lisa,

Email notifications ..
Some lead right to the new post while others lead to the last page,
Is this a known issue?

Seems longer threads like our Random Thoughts don't lead to the newest post ..
But to page numbers instead .. is this a known issue?

That's it for the moment :)

Hey Lisa, It worked! Making the post window bigger works, but only per post.  It's not sticking.  Wonder if there's a way to make it stick.  Perhaps in preferences, which I still cannot do.  And if not, maybe you can mention it to whoever's in charge of this, that this is something they should work on when other, more important things are taken care of. 

Are they any closer to resolving "e-mail" taken issue?  Any time frame on that?  Please?
