I notice the "New Posts to You" is on the top line and always shows in red. In the old format, this indicated I had new posts waiting. But now, once I go to look at the new ones, the indicator stays red and I can't tell when new stuff occurs.
Or is it just me?
Click on pings, hit “clear all”
Happening to me, too. Clearing the old pings may remove the red, but I preferred it when it went away just by checking new messages. And, the font on my ping list is real big now.
Go to “Account” and then “My Preferences”, then scroll down to the “Pings” section and change it to automatic.
Are you logged in?
Thank you. I’ve been doing it manually.
I still don’t like the new pings. They’re harder to read
Thanks. I was hating the new behavior.
See this thread:
Free Republic Update: My Comments (Pings), System Upgrade and Spelling and Time Zone Breakage
It must be a new feature. I found it annoying at first but the “clear all” will clean everything up. I like it.
ping to post 10.
One of the things I’m having trouble with is having the name of the poster so far from the ping numbers. You have to scan back and forth to see what the post is and who did it, skipping over the date and time.
I liked the old format better. I also like it showing other posted who were included in pings, like if it was multiple pings to or from someone.
Its been months since I was on the home page, and I think I was actually mislead there by a unscrupulous Freeper. I guess i better go check in out.
Will I have to log in again?
I've adjusted, somewhat, to all the other changes, what's a few more eh? :)
That worked! Thanks, it was starting to drive me a little nuts.
It doesn’t clear it for me :(
Another problem I have is not being able to get my time to read EDT, it always reads PDT.
Also some of the pages have their background color set to white. I have a different color I like to use as it’s easier on the eyes, but if the background color is set to white I can’t change it.
There are problems I didn’t have before.
There = These
Things haven’t been the same since Pookie18 got shown the door.
