Invisible posts - how to see them

Posts: 6847 Join Date: 12/8/18 Recent Posts
Right now we are having a problem with posts becoming invisible in long threads for those who are using the flat view (and if you don't know which view you are using, it's probably the flat one). Siavash, our technical hero, is working on the problem, but until it's resolved, the posts become visible if you change from flat view to tree view. 

So how do you do that?

You open the thread and look inside the thread in the upper right corner. There you can find two clickable discrete little buttons: "flat view" and "tree view". Click on tree view. Problem solved (although, of course, the order of the posts changes, which may not be according to your preferences). 

I thought it might be a good idea to make a post like this, so that this temporary solution is easy to find. Since commenting in the actual thread doesn't help (that comment will be invisible too), whenever we see someone having this problem we can bump this thread and hope that they'll see it.

Good idea, Linda!

I've been sending PMs to folks who are having this trouble, like terry. But I still post a reply on the problem topic as I think replying to a complaint is a good idea, and others will see the solution there, too.

 Hi,

Thanks Linda and Chris.

The problem occurs when a thread has more than 200 posts (200 was the threshold for More Messages button previously). So I suggest that for now, if anyone has a thread that exeeds the 200 posts threshold, they create a new thread (for example for their practice log), until we find a solution for it.

Thanks.

terry, I've set the settings to its maximum, meaning 1000, but something is not right, so the 200 causes problem.
