computer dummy

I asked someone to share a recipe the were discussing for "tomolives",and I don't know "where" to look for a reply,I thought it would be under "myCHOW". Help!

  1. Welcome! If you click on myChow, you'll see a listing of all of the threads (topics) you have recently posted in. You’ll need to click on the topic you posted your question in and read the thread to see if anyone replied to you.

    It looks to me like small h did reply to you:

    And suggested you scroll up in the same thread to see where Toodie Jane had already posted the recipe:

    P.S. For future reference, I think “User Help” is probably the better place for a question on how to use the features of Chowhound.

      I have to say that the My Chow recent post feature does not always include those post threads we have started ourselves (unless we have, well, re-contributed to the thread). Maybe it's my system, I don't know. I've started using the "Watch This Post" feature in Topic Options so I can maintain a connection to the thread.

        cayjohan, I think the myChow page lists your posts you've made to the ten newest threads, regardless of when you made the post. In other words, if you just recently posted to a really old thread, whether it was started by you, or by someone else, it's probably not going to show on your myChow page if you're an active poster with lots of posts to newer threads.

        I love the "watch this post" feature. I must have several dozen flagged. I don't know if there's a limit--if there is, I haven't maxed out on it yet.

          TDQ - I think it's more if we started the post ourself and have not contributed further, that it doesn't pop in the My Chow. I've only been noticing this lately, and that's when I started using the Watch feature. For instance, I just yesterday posted with a whey question. Never showed up on My Chow, and I had to look for it under Watched. Brand new post. Maybe our My Chow only gives us ten? I know if I check out someone else's posts, there can be significantly more than ten listed.
          Oh - just re-read your post with different eyes - I see what you're saying about the age of the threads. Okay, but I'm not going to retract my earlier comments, since the My Chow feature (and our own posts) is an important one to most of us. Maybe that will be the next upgrade!


          1. re: cayjohan

            If you started the thread yourself, it does appear in my CHOW. If you're looking immediately after you start it, however, it may not yet be there since it does take some time for the threads to be indexed.
