    I have just replied to a post 'wi fi booster' on the motorhome accessories forum and it is not shown, along with the previous post from this morning, on the home page but is shown in the forums page. This 'thread disappearance' has happened to me before, the last time I assumed the thread had been pulled by admin for some reason.

    Any explanations?

    Thanks but I know where the thread is. The point of this post is that it is not shown in the last 30 posts on the home page making it difficult to find and I was asking some questions in the post.::bigsmile:

    Thanks for that but I know the thread is still there in the forum but I think if it is not shown in the 'last 30 posts' section on the home page it will not be seen by many and I was asking some questions that may be of interest to others as well as myself.::bigsmile:

    No it's not you. Hildwiller has just added a post to it and it shows as a new post but not on the front page.

    I usually only see the home page once, after that I just keep hitting New Posts.

    If you hit backapce to go back to Home or New you do go back to the where you left it minutes before, it does not refresh the page, you keep the one stored in your computer, you will miss recent posts that way.

    No, it's a new forum section and it has a glitch I hav'nt managed to sort yet. to be honest, I'd forgotten about it, its slipped off my to-do list. Probably because I hardly ever look at the front page, I monitor the forum from here
    http://www.motorhomefun.co.uk/Forum.php. Because every forum post without exception is displayed here in the top 30 posts. You miss too many posts if you just watch the front page.

    I'll revisit it when I can:thumb:

    I usually use the home page as a reference to new posts but I do refresh the page when I return to it. I suppose it is just a different way of doing the same thing but if others do the same as me they will miss my very interesting and informative posts:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

    Just click the Forums. Item top left of the blue menu bar. Or the first item in the nav menu on the left of the front page. Then bookmark it:thumb:

    Ah - one word answer.

    But now I've looked again, it's still "New Posts" that immediately gives me access to current activity.

    NEW POSTS

    It does what it says on the tin.
