Um, I haven't actually TRIED this yet, but I'm getting ready to give it a shot. It's supposed to make it easier to see replies in the outline view. The post over there states:

You have to change the web address of the reply. Replace the "message" with "outline" and replace "msg" with "tid".

Lemme give it a shot and I'll report back.

Um...honestly I don't see the difference between this and outline view, but give it a try. Maybe someone else can figure it out, LOL!

Okay, I get it. If you're on the regular view and you click on a post, you don't see the outline view unless you click on outline view and go down the list to find it. Doing what was suggested will show you the outline for the thread you're on. Go to the Wednesday Woes post or another one with a lot of responses and try it. It looks just like the outline, but takes you right to the post you're on instead of to the top of the outline.

Again, replace (in the url/address) the word "message" with "outline" and the letters "msg" with "tid". Example w/ Wednesday Woe thread is:

http://messageboards.ivillage.com/n/mb/message.asp?webtag=iv-pswaiting&msg=11238.18&ctx=0

Changes to: http://messageboards.ivillage.com/n/mb/outline.asp?webtag=iv-pswaiting&tid=11238.18&ctx=0

LOL Sarah! I wanted to let you know that it is fine to shamelessly steal tips from us! I was just coming over here to see if you had any good suggestions. ;o)

Feel free to pop in at any time! hehehehe

Aaahhh, Carol! Nice to "meet" you...I keep hearing wonderful things about you from one of your boardies! (Not that the rest don't like you, LOL--I just talk to her on the side a lot. Hee hee!) I highly recommend the split screen view, LOL! It keeps the posts from moving around on you and makes things almost normal until you refresh. I might have stolen that from your board too, though (who can remember, LOL!) so you might already know that! I can't keep track of anything any more... Thanks for stopping by, hat and all! (LOL! I'm usually the only hat around here, so it's nice not to stand out in the crowd by myself!)

Nice to meet you too Sarah!! I have pretty much been lurking regularly since my graduation from WTT in 8/01 (soooo long ago now!). :o)

I like the split screen view too. I told my boardies about it, but quite by accident! LOL! Someone asked how I navigated the boards and I brought up the split screen thingy and they loved it! It didn't even cross my mind at the time that it was a "tip" that I should share! LOL I have to say though, I'm getting more and more used to the folder view. I only use the outline view now if I am confused by the reply structure. Plus it is nicer to see things like roll calls or short polls in the outline view.

Nice to hear that people are saying nice things!! I really have enjoyed all the WTT graduates we have been getting over there recently. :o)

You seem to have a great board over there! When ladies ask where to go from here, that's where I send them, LOL!

(*whispering* I'll never get used to the folder view, but split screen I can handle, LOL!)
