Chowhound Staff: Which of you have voluntarily chosen to no longer collapse previously read posts?

Actually the two are part of the same setting, so if you've selected the "collapsed" view, you should be landing on the See All page by default. Are posts that you've previously read showing up collapsed?

Two things you could try would be to log out and then log back in. Also, clearing your cache.

Let us know if that resolves it for you.

Ad at bottom of page... Annoying

Hi again Wahooty. We're not able to reproduce this. Could you try clearing your cache to see if that resolves the issue?

Rachael Ray gets on my last nerve

I clicked into this thread because I both share the sentiment and love that phrase ("gets on my last nerve"). I work at home one day a week and sometimes have the TV on with the sound off. Even with the sound off Rachael Ray annoys me. From what I can gather, her cooking show has morphed into a talk show with one or two cooking segments. Why?? Her cooking show was annoying enough, but at least she has expertise in that arena.

Gotta agree with beevod too though: Just say no/change the channel.

Can't post

Hi zuriga1. You were able to create this discussion on the Site Talk board so it looks like you're able to post again? If not, can you elaborate? Are you unable to reply to existing discussions? Create a new discussion? Is this on your desktop system or a mobile device? Operating system and browser? Thanks!

"See All" doesn't work

Hi Enso. The "See All" button is working as normal for us in Windows 7, Firefox 35 (it looks like you're using Firefox 33, so you might try updating your browser?), whether logged in, logged out, opted in for collapsed posts, or opted out. If you're opted in for seeing collapsed posts, that means by default you will always land on the See All page, therefore the button will be "active"/highlighted, and not clickable, since you're already on that page. Hope that helps!

Hi Wahooty. What's the operating system on your phone, and what browser are you using? (So we can try to reproduce this.) Thanks.

Ad Takes Over Entire Page, Hijacks Chowhound

Best POST on CH for 2014

I *love* PG Tips, both regular and decaf. I agree that it's the best decaf around because it tastes like real tea (tho still not exactly like caffeinated). I had some at a friend's house--her boyfriend is English--and I never looked back.

Problem with crashing/exposed code OS 10.10.1 & Safari

Hi again corneygirl. We were able to convert your uploaded tiff file to a jpg and can now see what you were reporting. Other folks here have encountered the same thing--it's an ad-related issue and we've alerted the ad ops team. Thanks for the report.

Problem with crashing/exposed code OS 10.10.1 & Safari

Hi corneygirl. Your attached image didn't come through (showing as broken). Could you try reuploading?

Also, does the site crash in other browsers for you? What page(s) are you on when it happens? What are you doing when it happens? The more detail you can provide, the better chance we have of pinpointing the issue. Thanks.

Also, at the top of each board, next to the board title, there is a lowercase 'i' (for Info). If you hover over that 'i' you will see quick links to things like our Posting Guidelines

Issues with Chrome back function/loading ads

Hi Tante. We're not able to reproduce this issue but we are aware that users sometimes encounter issues with the browser back button on our pages. Because it's an intermittent issue, we haven't yet been able to pinpoint the cause, but we're continuing to look into it. Thanks for the report.

Problem with post not showing up

Hi seamunky. I see your post on the first page of the General Topics board as well (see first screen shot). I think donovt's hunch may be right, that you've got your board pages sorted by either Date Started or Replies, rather than Last Reply (see second screen shot).

You might try checking your browser extensions. Things like Ghostery and AdBlock have been known to block site functionality, so disabling them or adjusting settings within them may help with pageload times.

How Are Ads Chosen?

Hi Duffy.

That ad has been blocked from the site now so if you clear your cache you shouldn't see it again.

Thanks for the report and let us know if you have any further issues.
