    Default My posts no longer show up in the "New Posts"

    I've noticed recently that when I start a topic, that it no longer shows up or is listed under new posts. I do get a few replies, so somebody must be able to see it. Just wondered why I can't see my own posts anymore. Also when I reply to other posts, it usually never registers on the new posts page. The post will be in the thread, but my user name doesn't appear on the new posts page.

    Thanks!

    You post a thread. You view it after you post it. It is no longer considered a new post. If you want to see your post you can use the real time link.
    (this is how I understand it)

    I'm obviously not answering this in any official capacity but just so you're not wondering while waiting for an answer... I think when you click on "New Posts" it shows you new posts that are unread. If you posted a thread or a reply then you have already read it and it is no longer new to you... when someone else replies it once again shows up in new posts because there is something new for you.

    I figured this out is because the homeschool forum I belong to has always been set up this way so when the changes were made here I picked up on that right away. HTH!

    ETA: LOL, I posted at the same time Gabe posted the "official" answer... he was much more concise than me. LOL

    Yes. Both Gabe and elphie are correct. I recently made the [url][ame][URL="https://www.frugalvillage.com/forums/showthread.php?t=115835"][/ame]change. Read here: [ame="https://www.frugalvillage.com/forums/showthread.php?t=115835"]Frugal Village Forums[/ame] (easier for me to link than retype)

    You can view your posts under the "view" link on the top menu bar and click "my posts"

    Ok, one more thing:
    I asked Sara this same exact thing a week or so back, and her suggestion to me was to use "todays posts" instead of "new posts" like we used to. (someone had an issue with it taking forever to load or something like that, so something was changed and this "a new post is no longer a new post" thing was introduced).

    Anyway, I now use "todays posts" instead of "new posts" and it works like a charm.
    HTH

    I had not thought of using Today's Posts instead of the New Posts. I like having the threads I have already read still there and the new way was really bothering me. Thanks for the info. I will be using the Today's Post button now.

    Thanks again for the info!!!
