What to Do If You No Longer See the Most Recent Discussions at the Top of Board Pages

If you're suddenly seeing topics on the boards that seem "out of order," you may have inadvertently sorted your board(s) by Date Started or Replies instead of Last Reply. Try clicking on the "Last Reply" text at the top of the right-hand column and see if that sets things right for you.

Recently Replied to Top? WTH Happened?

That's a great idea MplsM ary. I'll start a new post with a more specific headline and then add it to the informational links. Thanks for the suggestion!

Recently Replied to Top? WTH Happened?

Hi Sam. You may have inadvertently sorted your board(s) by Date Started or Replies instead of Last Reply. Try clicking the blue "Last Reply" text at the top of the right-hand column and see if that sets things right for you.

I've uploaded a screen shot here showing where to click. Hope that helps!

No board for Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan?

Hi klyeoh. We think the best place to post on your trip is on the Middle East board:

Have a great trip!

Sliding Banner Pics are VERY irritating!

This should be fixed now. Let us know if you continue to see any issues.

I'm getting ads that won't X out and they're blocking "what are you looking for" to boot...

We released a fix for this. Let us know if you continue to have issues.

I take it back! It just happened to me and I believe it's related to replying on a thread. We'll look into this further.

Thanks for the screen shots, these are very helpful! What's happening here is not that an ad is being served in that spot, but that the content in the right rail is (improperly) scrolling up over top of the top nav. We've had another report of this but have not been able to reproduce it in any browser, on Windows or Mac. It looks like you're using Windows 7. What browser are you in? Do you have any extensions running in the browser? (Things like Ghostery or Adblock--though I guess you're not running Adblock or we wouldn't be seeing the ads!) And does this only happen on discussions or do you see it on other pages as well?

Thank you for all the additional info so far.

We're not able to reproduce this in Windows 7 on IE, Chrome, Firefox, or Safari. One possible culprit is AdBlocker--with the ad removed from the right rail, that might disrupt the scrolling behavior of the rest of the content there. But we'll continue to monitor it, thanks for the report.

Hi coll. Can you provide your OS, browser, and a screen shot? Also, info on where this is happening. (Chowhound home page? Boards? Threads?) Thanks.

Why?

We're seeing other reports of this issue, though we haven't been able to reproduce it. We'll continue to look into it. It appears you're using Windows 7, could you tell us what browser you're using?

We were able to upload photos in both scenarios.

How Do You Post a Photo To This Site?

Hi Thor123.

When you're creating a new discussion, there's a photo upload field in the form just above the shaded bar at the bottom where the Post button is. The photo upload field has text in it that reads "Drop photos here or click to select files (10 photo limit)".

If you're replying to an existing discussion, there's also a photo upload field, just below where you're typing your reply, and the text in it reads as linguafood mentioned: "Upload a photo (10 MB limit)".

I've uploaded two screen shots that will hopefully help.

Can't post a photo with iOS 8

Apple's just-released iOS 8 update, 8.0.2, appears to have fixed the photo upload issue for iPad. We were able to upload photos from our iPad 4 after installing the OS update.

Disappearing threads

Hi kagemusha49.

Can you provide more details? What is "in the normal manner"? Do you mean on the board page? http://chowhound.chow.com/boards/27 Or on your profile page? Or you couldn't find it in search? Or...?

If you're looking on the board page and don't see it near the top, it's possible you've accidentally changed the display/sort option there. Discussions on boards can be sorted by Date Started, Replies, or Last Reply. If you click on the Last Reply column header, then you should see the thread you're looking for near the top of the list. (For now anyway. As more threads receive replies, it'll move down the page.

)

Hope that helps.

"I Don't Cook"

It's plenty easy to eat without hardly cooking. Microwave for frozen stuff, steaming veggies, or cooking oatmeal. Lots of salads and fruit. Sandwiches. Yogurt. Mixed in with the occasional toast, scrambled eggs, or pot of boiling water, it's quite easy to eat well/simply/healthy (insert your choice of adjective here) without formal cooking.

Can't post a photo with iOS 8

Hi grampart. We were able to reproduce this on our iPad 4 today (using ios 8.0, not the 8.0.1 update that was pulled). We'll take a look.

Ad won't close, crashes browser

Hi foodieX2. So far we haven't been able to reproduce this, but we're looking into it in conjunction with our ad-ops team. Let us know if you continue to run into this issue.

Why do I have to login so often

Hi magiesmom and almond tree. We've had intermittent reports of this issue in the past, but it's not something we've ever been able to reproduce reliably, or pinpoint a cause for. We suspect it might be related to third-party content on the site. We'll keep an eye on it. Thanks for the reports.

Unfollow not working?

Hi LulusMom. We're unable to reproduce this in Windows 7, Firefox. It looks like you're running Windows XP? That could potentially be the culprit, since that operating system is no longer supported. Did this happen with only a certain thread, or any thread you stopped following?

Hi steve h.

We're not able to reproduce this at the moment (we were just able to upload a photo from an iPhone 5s using iOS8), but we'll keep an eye on it. Thanks for the report.

How do I find posts I'm following?

Hi Nyleve.

Discussions that you've followed should be showing up on your My Followed Discussions tab. For instance, this thread--which you should automatically be following since you created it--should be listed on that tab. Do you see it there?

If there's a specific thread that you followed that you're not seeing on your My Followed Discussions tab, could you provide a link for that thread? Also, a screen shot of your My Followed Discussions tab could be helpful to attach here if the tab's not showing specific threads you're looking for.
