This is the best one yet

Using Flock Browser with Firefox Engine, When I click on Contact Forum Editor, it starts a new web page that is my Aol E-Mail Account. Only thing I can think is that code on the site is conflicting with Browser Code. It did not happen with the old site.

All I wanted to know was why My Postings is all messed up with up to 4 threads that are the same thread showing, and clicking on any one of them says it cannot be found

I think they will be working on it to resolve any problems. Of all the new features this is the one needing a few fixes so will probably take longer. like you say to many of the same threads and only 10 threads a page they need about 20-25. The page itself looks great but does not function to the best of it's ability. It was always handy to use you clicked on it and all of your recent threads opened up but know you click on it and you get pages of duplicated threads which makes it[ well to me anyhow unusable]. Also keep getting e-mails not as many as when it first started but enough even when I post something myself I get an e-mail. Not had one today yet so maybe they have sorted that one out. Everything else is working well but My Posts needs some work doing to it.

Morning to both of you - I like the look of it - it's getting there but still room for improvement I am sure you will agree.

Sorry about the double post. I didn't get the option to "post" box at the bottom as I realised I wasn't "logged in" - so having logged in and done it again I found 2.

Apparently "Contact Forum Editor" is not like it was before, now it opens your normal default email client and you send an email like an ordinary one.

In my case (on this computer) it opens up 'New Message' in Outlook Express.

I saw a post by FE about it somewhere in another thread, and this is how it supposed to be working. Don't know if it will get changed back to the 'old' way (which I much preferred.

That appears to be the method now, which I personally don't like. Much prefer the out contact method.

But I suppose this is more for the Forum Editors benefit and security, like a few other changes, than that for the forum members?.

Hiya woodchip - I started a Thread yesterday evening entitled Testing, to which you kindly added a response. I have been trying to re-enter that Thread but it has zoomed off into the Ether, just cannot find it anywhere, although there are at least five instances of the title in My Posts, none of which will open the thread.

Does it show/open in your My Posts?

  woodchip 14:34 20 Apr 2011

Nontek That's the one that says it cannot be found when I click it in My Posts. Same on all the links

FE May have removed it

  Nontek 15:29 20 Apr 2011

woodchip - thanks, if FE has removed it, it would be nice to know why?? It is/was a straight-forward thread.

  lotvic 17:05 20 Apr 2011

I was looking for that Testing thread as well, I just get a 404 not found when trying from my browser history. I liked it better when threads got locked instead of them just disappearing but still being listed in My Postings. It's most confusing.

This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
