Re: Community Room

I have a question about using the forum.

 

Sometimes when I click on a thread, it takes me to the last message I read, other times I end up at the top and have to scroll through tonnes of posts.

 

How do I make sure it takes me to the last post read?  Is this even possible?

 

Thanks!  I'm determined to stay on top of the discussion this time around and this would help tremendously.

Re: Community Room

Hi Amanda  :smileyhappy:  If you go to your "Preferences," choose the "Display and Privacy Settings" tab, then you can select "Sort messages by latest post date in each thread." If you use the Linear setting for the boards, click "Newest to Oldest" in the Linear Format Settings. If you use the Threaded setting, click "Newest to Oldest/Date Descending" in the Threaded Format Settings. I hope this helps!

Sorting messages

[ Edited ]

Hi Donna,

 

Thanks - that's awesome. Now....for the dumb question of the week......how do I know if I view them in linear or threaded format?

 

Cheers,

Amanda

 

Nevermind, I'm editing this because I was able to answer my own question by looking in the preferences section.  Sorry!!!!

Re: Sorting messages

You have to decide if you want to read all of the messages like a newspaper column (one right after the other on the same page - Linear) or like steps (viewing each message individually - threaded). I like the treaded format because it is easy to see who is responding to who, and I find it easier to follow. Try both and see which you like the best. BTW, this is not a dumb question.  :smileywink:

Re: Sorting messages

Thank so much for your help!  It would appear that I've got it organized.  I tend to get lost in the discussion once it gets underway and I suspect that it was largely because I had to wade through ALL the posts to get to where I left off.  No more!  Yay!

 

Cheers,

Amanda

What are you reading?

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

Just wondering what everyone is reading while you wait for The Physick Book to arrive?

 

I'm reading Lady Audley's Secret by Braddon.

 

Cheers,

Amanda

Re: What are you reading?

I am reading Dog On It by Spencer Quinn. I started it because of the title, and am enjoying the story. (I can remember saying doggonit as a kid. LOL)

I too just started reading Spencer Quinn's Dog On It. I am just on chapter four and already love the book. I like the freshness of the story written from the dog Chet point of view. The book is the first of a new series.

Re: What are you reading?

I'm finishing up the last few chapters of Sag Harbor (my school final caused me to fall a little behind) Plus I'm also working on Duma Key by Stephen King, Rachel's Tears by Beth Nimmo and Darrell Scott, and I'm getting ready to start Little Giant of Aberdeen County.

I have Loving Frank in my TBR pile.  I hear it's a great read.  I'd love to hear what you think of it.

It was really good, a bit different than her other Alex Cooper mysteries/crime novels. But a really good fit.
I reviewed it on B&N if you want to check it out.

Re: Community Room

I'm currently reading Suttree by Cormac McCarthy. He's one of my favorite authors, and this is the only one by him I hadn't read yet. It's excellent.
