Hello ladies!

As you can see, the board changes I posted about last week went into effect earlier this week, and I wanted to check in with all of you to see if anyone is having issues.  Our Community Director, Jess, has been posting updates on our tech teams progress, here is a link to the latest one on iVillage Help:

You can ask any questions you might have on this forum, on this thread, or email me at pboards@mail.ivillage.com.  

Thanks for your patience as we work through these issues, we appreciate it!

Sorry for the slow response, I've had periods of not being able to log in and not being able to see all the posts in this thread. I tried to follow the steps at the link you provided, although I didn't have some of the wonky data she had entered in her account. It's still giving me the same error when I try to sort topics by most recent post. Caryn

Cilla, we've been having issues with changing preferences for some members. What error message are you receiving? I think it might be related to our old cl-xxx accounts, but not for sure. One of the CLs was able to get hers working, here is what she did: http://www.ivillage.com/forums/ivillage-women/around-ivillage/ivillage-help/ivillage-help/editing-preferencesi-got-it-work#new They will be addressing the errors with symbols in thread titles, thanks for letting me know.

I know the team is working hard to fix issues.

I tried to set my preferences to sort by the most recent post and it failed. It gave me an error message, "The e-mail address XXX is already taken.", where XXX is my email linked to my account. I'm reading in Chrome. It's really hard to look through pages and pages of threads to find the one I'm looking for (example on this board is the "October Cyclers - Post Here" thread.

Thanks again for your help in gathering these issues and getting them to the team working on the issues.

I haven't been able to change my preferences. I have tried in chrome and IE8 and it kind of just clocks and locks up. Also at the top of the page where it shows the folder for the thread (Home › Pregnancy & Parenting › Trying to Conceive › IVF Support, Advice & Friends › IVF Support: Chit Chat, Cycle Threads & More › Checking In!), the board name reads "IVF Support, Advice & Friends"

Hi Melissa,

Also, I do most of my reading/posting on my iphone and the format is so large, it is unusable.  So I stopped checking in unless I can sit down at my regular computer at home (too slow to load at work).  Until the mobile layout is fixed, I probably won't be checking in much.

Hi Caryn!

Thanks so much for your feedback. Here is what I know ;)

Unread posts & going to first unread post in a thread - this was a big project that we weren't able to go live with at this time, but stay tuned.  They go hand in hand, and something that the tech team will have to program.  

Quick Reply - this has been reported and is on the list for our tech team Threads with latest posts at the top of the board - go to "Edit My Preferences" click on the "General" tab, and checkmark the option to "Sort topics by time of most recent post"

Avatars - these are slowly being imported, here is a tutorial if you want to go ahead and update yours: http://www.ivillage.com/forums/ivillage-women/around-ivillage/ivillage-help/ivillage-help/hi-my-avatar-gone-how-do-i-get-it-back?page=#comment-119781632

Visitor issue - this is on the high priority list 

I have passed on your feedback to the team, please keep me posted if you run into any other issues. Jess will continue to post updates on the iVillage Help board, link above.

Thanks again!

sorcet, I'm going to send you an email because I'm not sure you'll be able to read this.

Thanks for checking in Melissa! The two biggest complaints I've heard are:

  1. - not being able to tell what threads have unread posts in them

- when clicking into a thread with unread posts it doesn't go to the unread ones
- when using the "Quick Reply" function the editor doesn't recognize the return key and runs all text together
- after posting on an existing thread that thread is not moved to the top of that topic...so you end up having to search through all threads for new posts
- pictures next to names are gone 
- some users not being recognized and being reported as "Visitor (Not Verified)"

I've noticed a severe reduction on posting but am hoping as the issues are worked through people will come back.

Thanks!
Caryn
