Problems and test thread

Oh! I just noticed something.

When I went to "New Posts" there was a box that said "show only unread".

When I hit the x next to that, it solved the problem. I think :confused:

@HBS Guy I went through all 33 pages of the Sand Pit forum, and I don't see "funny". I restarted my desktop computer - no change. I tried it on my iphone - no change. So I turned off the Wifi on the phone and tried it again - no change. I can get to "funny" by clicking on my profile and going to "Your Content" or by clicking on a notification of a response to something I posted there. But if I or someone else posts on "funny" it does not show up if I click on the "New Posts" button or if I click on "What's New" and click on "New Posts" on the drop-down menu. If I click off the filter "Show only: Unread", that doesn't bring it up either. I can see everything else posted in the Sand Pit, but not "funny".

That's weird, isn't it?

That's really bizarre.

Can you see "New Ice Age", about 6 threads down in Sand Pit?

Yes. This and everything but "funny" shows up. I'm going to go to "New Posts" and the Sand Pit and take screenshots just so you know I'm not losing my mind.

I figured it out!! I noticed that the "funny" thread was originally posted by Agness. I wondered if for some reason I had Agness blocked, so I clicked on the Ignore setting, and sure enough. She was on my ignore list.

Funny thing because I have never "Ignored" Agness or anyone on the site. Nobody. Ever. Somehow, when the transition from the old site was done, and my profile came over, Agness was placed on Ignore. I didn't do it, and I suspect it was just some sort of glitch. I took Agness off Ignore, and bingo! The "funny" post appeared on the list.

Problem solved! :D
