from nomles...new message really should read new TOPIC...but whatevah...smh...

 

To post a new topic, do this:

- Click on the category name in the list of categories that's on the left side of the screen.

- On the new page that opens, above the first topic, is a big red box that says "NEW MESSAGE".  Click that. 

- On the next screen, enter the subject line in the first (small-ish box), your message (in the nalrge box), and then click the POST button.

>>>From Adelina...

 

If you see a (nearly) all blank white screen after hitting "post" do this...you end up back in the thread you just posted to (rather than on the blank white Q wilderness).  YAY!

 

Go to "edit my preferences"

It should default to Pref Options

(if not, click Pref tab, then click Pref Options)

Uncheck the last box "show confirmation pages for posts"

Save

Hi @ChynnaBlue and @MacDUFF:

 

This is great!

 

Quick Q: How do you make a link like you did above? Or if you want to link to an item number? Sometimes if I cut and paste it will include the hyperlink, but othertimes it won't.

 

---Update: Actually, I found it. Hit the link icon in the compose/reply box and it pops up. Excellent feature addition. Thanks for the heads up by using it! Smiley Happy

Hi Himi...I saw something about that recently (while stumbling blindly in the dark LOL).  IIRC, the @Himi lover sign is eventually (?) going to allow us to call you over to a thread we think you might be interested in.  My guess is that it'll show that you have a notification (similar to the notification you get when someone hearts you).  Some forums call this a "ping" or "pinging" someone to a certain thread.  Something like that...?

Outstanding catch from debc...

 

Search/find all your recent posts:

The "search forums and blogs" button/box (NOT the search qvc button/oblong box) has a drop down menu and users is one of the choices.  My dropdown menu is right under the "search forums/blogs" box...it defaults to "community" but I can click in it for other choices to search.  Choose "user."  Then type in your user name in the "search forums/blogs" box and go.   It will take you to your name with information.  One bit of info is a thought bubble with the number of posts you have.  That is clickable.  Click there and you'll get a list of your recent posts.

@MacDUFF, this thread is fabulous!

 

I've added some "help" here and there, not sure what might be redundant to add here.  But I wanted to add "kudos" to you for corralling lots of help into one thread. Smiley Happy

@I wanted to add to @debc's excellent post:

 

Once you find the page that holds all your activity (after clicking on the "thought bubble" or the number to the right of it), create a bookmark to that page on your browser (Firefox, IE, Chrome, Safari, etc.).  You might want to call the bookmark "My Activity."

 

That way, until all this info is added to our profile and we can avoid this process, w can use just one click to the bookmark to see our latest posts.
