The last few days I've been getting 'no new threads/posts to read' coming up when clearly there are things I haven't read. I click on 'Show unread posts since last visit.' and no posts appear.

Anyone else getting this occasionally?

I do occasionally, usually after clearing cache or cookies. Did you just do a clean up on your computer?

It happens to me occasionally too, though I've not to my knowledge cleared cache or cookies. Later that day or the next day, they're always back.  :shrug:

No cleaning going on here.  :no I'm keeping my cookies, even the website cookies!

Seriously, no, I haven't done any cache clearing or similar.

Odd.

Are you accidentally hitting the 'no new replies to your posts' button?  I've done that a few times, and that's when I get the blank screen...

I get that too. There's usually a link that says "No new posts. Click here to see all unread posts," and I click on that instead.

I can't find the new posts since your last visit button .. that's what I always used before.

That happened to me, Lill. If it's the same problem, the solution is simple:
To the right of "Created by Verla Kay" in the upper right-hand corner, there's a little white arrow. Click on it & presto!

Nope, I usually click on both, each one in a different window.

Ah well, maybe it's just the world telling me to stop faffing around and do some work!

Thanks, Michael. I'm not using the default .. I'm using the one with the giraffes .. so let me go try one of the other layouts and see if I can find it.

Got it! I had to go to the default setting. I'll miss the giraffes, but this is more convenient.

Giraffes? There are giraffes somewhere on the boards? Any elephants? Lions? Monkeys?!

Yes! To see them, go to Profile, Account Settings, Modify Profile, Look and Layout. First option on that page is "Current Theme." Click "change." Scroll down till you see "Clear Nature" and click on Preview. If you like, click Use this theme.

"Show unread posts" should still work for you. If not, click that small arrow to the right of "Simple Machines Forum." It should point up, not down.

WARNING:  Those alternate theme choices will most likely disappear when SCBWI takes over this message board. I seriously doubt they are going to pay their designers thousands of extra dollars to create their working headers and banners for all of our different themes! We will all be using the Curve theme with SCBWI's new header and footer when the merger is complete. So don't get too used to another theme in the meantime....
