What's happening on my FR Forum page? (vanity)
My confusion ^ | 4/7/13 | Baynative

Posted on 04/07/2013 8:07:46 AM PDT by Baynative

When I go to the Forum page, (on the left side) I get the last post entered on the topic threads instead of the intro post.


TOPICS: Chit/Chat; Free Republic Policy/Q&A; Miscellaneous
KEYWORDS: faq; forum; fr; frontpage
Has something changed on my end that I can fix, or is it in the website?

The Forums come to me as a page of pings for other people — ??

Look at the tab on top, are you on Articles or Comments?

I haven't used it in a while, but there's a setting that gives you the latest responses (which is why you sometimes see posts that simply say "Bump" or "BTTT" -- bump to the top -- to make the thread visible again for those users).

There are three tabs... articles, activity & comments.
Sounds like you are on “comments”.

Click “articles”.

If that doesn’t work (changing the tabs), reload your browser. If that doesn’t, reboot.

You are set on COMMENTS instead of ARTICLES. I keep mine set that way all the time. It’s more interesting because I see things I would not see if I kept it set on ARTICLES.

Your computer is running backwards in time. Here is the fix:

Shut down computer.
Pull plug.
Flip it over and plug it back in.
Turn on computer.
Walla! Now running forwards in time.

Yep it shows you which threads are getting the play at the moment and any activity on threads from the past. I look at the articles page a few times during the day just to see what has been posted that isn’t getting much play.

I watched that British comedy series via Netflix. It was LOL funny in a nerdily way.
