Hi all, it's still very confusing in here because I don't get emails through (well, when I remember not to ... :unsure: ).
I'm sure our mods will do a great job making it easier to find everything. Big task you have ahead there by the sounds of things Mary! :silly:

♥ Happy anniversary Mr and Mrs Florrie ♥ Your trip away sounds fantastic. :cheer: xoxo

Great news from the Doppler scan Mrs Shingles. :) xoxo

Hi Di,

No, it's not a big task; it's just that a discussion started in the "suggestion box" that didn't belong in there. I have almost finished moving the posts to the places that they belong. I suspect that this comes about either:

1. By people receiving emails and clicking on the link to take them to the post and then replying, not noticing that it is in the wrong place or:
2. People using the "recent topics" heading and replying without noticing that the post is in the wrong place.

The easiest way to find your way around is to log in, click on "Forum Home" up the top and then each thread will tell you (in green I think) how many new posts are in that particular thread. Then you can reply to the ones you wish to reply to. Before you log out, you can click on "mark all topics as read" up the top and that will clear the green notifications.

That's the way I have always done it and it seems to be the least confusing. That doesn't mean that others haven't found an easier way of course :)

I hope I haven't made all of this even more confusing. Please feel free to ask any questions that you may have.

Mary,

Why not just main 'Headings' with the topics under their suitable Heading?

example
HEADERS that then have the appropriate topics in each.

Prescription Medications
Natural & Alternative product topics
Exercise
General chit-chat for members (members may use private to post in here)
Food
Pain Management
Ailments, Conditions, Diagnosis
Treatments, Procedures, Operations
GP’s, Specialists, Allied health professionals and Chronic Pain
Not suited to any current heading (mods’ make a new heading if deemed needed)

That's pretty much it!

Hi Di,

We have just spent a considerable amount of time to get the forum into an organized layout with the various sections and their descriptions. The only problems arise when people are not checking to see that their post has been put in the appropriate section and then others post after it (usually because they have clicked on an email link). Then we have a conversation about medications in the "Forum Suggestions" thread.

That's all it was. Not a big thing really. The headings are easy to follow. It's just a matter of having a quick look before you start a new thread to make sure that it is in the appropriate area.

Cheers,
Mary

Fair enough Mary. :)

I still find it all too heavily focused on main headings for pain management (should be topics) in a one main heading so we'll just agree to disagree on that one.

You and the other mods are doing a great and usually thankless task for all of us, so I'd like to say;
