problem posting to a thread

Is it the "new look" that's causing my problem, 'cos i've been posting in this forum for years and never had this problem before - I responded to an existing thread, twice, but neither of my responses appeared. In My Postings the thread I'd posted to appeared, but still what I had sent didn't appear. Any solution, please? Only discovered the new look today - been away.

are you sure you actually posted in the thread you thought you posted in?

Is this the thread you mean? click here
Because you've posted three times. Perhaps you didn't realise it was on page four?

thanks, Watchful. That was one of them. My postings have appeared there now, but it's taken ages; it used to be instantaneous. ie click "post response" and within a few seconds there was the original thread with one's post to it at the end. it sems to be taking MUCH longer now. Thanks, Woodchip; I'm in Cumbria.

I see now that as Watchful says it's on p4; but my confusion was caused by the new layout - too wide, and as some people have already said, a bit too pale. Having to log in with user name AND password is a pain too; rather defeats the object of the link in the notifying email. Ah well, maybe in a week or two I'll have got used to it but I've made very slow progress this evening.
