Did you know?
« on: October 14, 2011, 07:46:55 AM »
I know this doesn't go here, but I think people might be looking at this category first.

If you look in the upper left hand corner of the screen, right there under your user name greeting, there are 2 clickable links.  One is "Show unread posts since last visit" and the other is "Show new replies to your posts".

If you click on those, they will bring you right away to a list of unread posts / unread replies.  That way you don't have to scroll down through the main topics to try and figure out what's new.

Keys Girl mentioned that she hadn't seen the post about Luise and I thought this trick would be helpful to more than just her.

Mods - feel free to move this as required.

Great idea Scoop.  I use it all the time but I never thought about someone else not knowing about it....Duh.

I did move it to "Helpful Resources" but did a redirect topic so it would help people find it.

Thanks Scoop

I will also add that something else I use all time to find posts when I can't locate something, is the "Search" function.  It's right there in the first set of things beside "Home".

If you wrote a post, and can just remember a few key words you used, you can put those in the search box and it will bring up a list of all the posts it can find with those words.  Then you can click on the post and go to it.

It's a quick way to find something than having to look through tons of posts.

I don't see this at all. :(  I see where it will say 'CPR and X guests' are viewing a post, but there is no greeting for me.  I looked on my profile page too.  Which page is the greeting on?

Scroll all the way to the top and then to the left where it says "Hello cpr" with your icon, right under websites header pictures.  It should be on any page you go to.  Then it shows what Scoop was talking about under the Hello and then the date.

I had somehow managed to minimize that section!  Thanks!

I didn't even know you could minimize that section! Lol.  I went up and looked after you posted that and there is an arrow in the upper right corner of the header that allows you to minimize and maximize the header. 

Now you taught me something cpr!  Thanks.
