Ponytail it is only in My Posts that your replies are listed as separate topics. It is an as yet unrectified fault in the new format. If you look in the Helproom forum you can see just a single thread.

There are a number of faults with the new website, and your question is one that is a known fault. The website is still undergoing 'tweaking', so you will need to accept it for the time being.

Thanks for your help and yes the new web site does seem strange but just have to get used to it.

When adding to or replying to a respondent, to keep all entries in the one Thread, you need to leave the thread entirely and then return to it in order to continue your postings.

Nontek, even I can't make sense of that.

I use the 'Reply to this topic' box and then click on Post button...... ;)

Look I just did it again without leaving the thread...

lotvic Great, so it appears to have been fixed, I am sure one had to leave the thread and return to add a post - or maybe I was dreaming :-))
