Hi Dizzy,

 

Not sure what happened but your topic was hidden, not deleted.  I've unhidden it now so it should be visible to everyone.

I am trying to find a topic that I've been contributing to.  It's extremely difficult.  When I use the search function and type in my user name, only some posts come up.  If anyone knows how I can find all of my posts, I would like to know how.  Thanks.

You can go to the top left where your user name is and open that........then go to your profile.........and find your recent content.

 

Or go to the Activity tab on the top left of your screen and then to My Activity.

 

I usually use my desktop computer here though.......it might be a bit different if you are using a smart phone or I phone.

 

Maybe that will help.  Hope so. 

 

You may not be able to find all your posts after awhile, unless they are on your introduction/journal but should be able to get back to your more recent ones.

I just clicked on "disable messenger" at the bottom of the PM list and the envelope went from the screen.  When I clicked on the drop down arrow and clicked on Messages is said messenger was disabled do you want enable it or something like that.

nz11 - your friend asks a very good question about managing attachments. I have reached 100% of my allotment for attachments, so will be researching what to do and how to do it.

Drop down arrow next to name (top right), My Attachments.

 

Bother, I delete one this morning and now I can't work out how I did it.

 

EDIT:  It was because I deleted it after I had browsed and found the file but hadn't posted the reply.  There was a bin icon which I could click.  That's not available once it is posted.  Grr.

Has this question been asked? I couldn't find it anywhere. Why can I not see signatures? Thanks for any help mods and members. Also would someone please help me to put in an avatar?

Go to the drop down arrow next to your name (top right) and select Profile.  On the current avatar (for you:  green M) on the top left you will find an icon which you click on.  This will bring up the screen where you can add a photo.

Marsha, are you using a desktop/laptop computer to view the site or a mobile device (phone or tablet)?  If you're using a mobile device, you can't see the signatures. It's an arbitrary decision by the forum software publishers/developers to allow mobile users to see more actual content.  It's something that probably works for many sites but doesn't mesh well with SA using signatures to convey important rather than "nice to see" information.

Hello, everyone.

 

I have added a new field to everyone's public profile, for a link to your Introductions topic. It is optional. If you wish to add it, all you need to do is:

 

1) Go to your topic and copy the URL in the browser bar.

 

2) Click on the Profile link under your name in the upper right corner of every page.

 

3) On your Profile page, click on the Edit Profile link in the top right of your Profile area.

 

4) Scroll down, under Location, you'll see a blank field for My Introductions topic.

 

5) Paste the URL into the field.

 

Anyone who is a member may click on your avatar image and see your Profile. If you do not wish to publish the link to your Introductions topic, you don't have to.

I've just followed these instructions and the link will show up on a member's profile page on the left, which means that you won't have to click on See Their Activity and then Topics and then find their Intro topic which will be mixed in with any other topics that the member has created.

 

Thanks Alto.

Yes, this will make it easier for people to find their own Introductions topic, too.

Hi:

 

I've tried to change my signature several times. It appears to change when I look at it, but when I go to a topic and type in a reply, the same old signature remains.

Have you been sure to click the Save button at the bottom of the window after you change your signature?

I keep losing things in the forum. I think "oh, I'll go back and respond to that thread" and I can't find it again. :( Is there a way to bookmark a thread/post to go back to later?

Cheers!
