a button to show new posts again
If you look at the Quick Links (top right of the screen) the drop down has the New Posts button (you can save it as a favourite on your browser too)

Perhaps it is just my browser but "The Hearthfire" seems to have disappeared! :o

This is getting even odder! I managed to get to a Hearthfire thread via a link from an email from OBOD telling me there was a new comment. I just posted a reply on that thread and my response has suddenly appeared in the "Ovate" private section of the Forum! :huh:

I can't get to the Hearthfire, tried several times logging off and on again. It must have shifted to another realm!

I managed to get to Hearthfire by going into my user profile "show all post" and clicking on an old post were it shows Hearthfire as the posting place. Click actually on Hearthfire. Hope that helps till it get back on the "discussion forums index"?" That doesn't hurt anything computerish, does it Heddwen?

Oh I've no idea....I'm not particularly tekkie minded :-)

Thank you so much for your patience everybody. Methinks that Storm Imogen that has hit southern England and south Wales has had a part to play here.

Let's hope and pray that everyone is safe.

Ok - just getting to this.
I have a few questions...
how do you access the board? i.e. do you have a favourite saved? If so can you check the URL that the favourite has - this will depend upon the browser you use...
e.g. In firefox you will need to use <ctrl><shift>B to amend them but <right click> the favourite and press 'properties' to see the URL that is saved.

Try entering http://messageboard.druidry.org and then logging in to see if the Hearthfire shows normally

Dear DaRC,

I'm afraid that, no matter what I do, the Hearthfire is still Showing up in the Druid Grade Member's Forum.

Cheers,
Michael :tiphat:

Hi DaRC

I have responded by PM with some screen shots.

Hi Michael

That is interesting as for me, the Hearthfire appears in the Ovate section.

Ha ha! Hearthfire appears for me under the Members Only 'Bard' bit. A pattern emerging here? Phew, glad I don't have to sort this out. Blessings. Linda x

With sincere apologies to the brave and humble Bilbo and the great JRRT:

The "Hearthfire" goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the "Hearthfire" has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say.

It seems, based upon my experience and that of another user who contacted me, to be appearing in the highest grade forum of which we're members; i.e., Bards see it in Bards, Ovates see it in Ovates, and Druids see it in Druids.

FYI, DaRC, I'm using Chrome.

Much weirdness. :shrug:

I've been away for a little while and things certainly look different here...

Ok - I gtried to fix it and now seem to have lost the Hearthfire but I have noticed that the whole Forum base structure is strange which will need a lot more research ( :D some may call it googling!) and understanding of the structure.

Sorry folks - the inherited structure has gone a bit squiffy :shrug:

Has anyone found "All Seriousness Aside"? It appears to be missing in action as well. I cannot even find list for my postings. A funny thing happened to me on my way to All Seriousness Aside.....(sorry couldn't resist the trite pun). :where:
