    So in reading through so many threads sometimes I find it hard to follow the conversation because the posts dont reference back to previous posts.

    I think it would be helpful if you could hit reply and it would reference in your post which post you were replying to.

    Does that make sense?

     

    It would also be cool if you could click a link  from your post to see the reply posts. I know they do this in another forum I belong to.. its great and make is really easy to follow the conversation!

      if you want to reference a post, hit "quote." if you want to reference several posts in your reply, hit "multi" on each one and on the last one hit "quote" and they will all show up in your reply box.

       

      in any post containing a quote, you will see what looks like a little speech bubble and arrow next to the quoted person's name. click that, and it will take you back to the exact post that was quoted.

          well yes but that only happens if you hit quote, not if you hit reply...which is what most people do.

            Yeah, but replies are usually posted within just a post or two of the one they're referencing (and if not, then they *should* quote it so it makes sense), so I guess I'm just not sure why you find the convo difficult to follow? They read from top to bottom, from earliest to most recent, soooo ... ??????

              I should also note that if EVERY SINGLE POST on the forum contained a quote, I'd feel like I was constantly reading the same things over and over and over again. And, the forum would get unbelievably bogged down with all the redundant info. That's why stuff is divided into threads. If a person replies in a certain thread, it's to be assumed that their comment has something to do with that topic, no?

              The exception to this might be the long chit-chat threads but honestly they function more like chatrooms.

                You'd be amazed how differently each person navigates this forum. I've never hit the reply button.

                 

                And I agree with Cougs about things getting redundant. 

                 

                Give it time, you'll get used to it.

                  Sorry to "hijack" your thread....I am trying to post in the Cruise Wedding Forum and it keeps giving me an error..."no data found".  I went to the FAQ and tried to find a way to email the site, but to no avail...can anyone help?

                   

                  Thank you!!!
