Why is it

Why is it sio difficult to get to the boards. I click on boards and I get taken right back to Latest Posts. I've already seen them. I want to see all of the boards. Oh they flash up and disappear only to be replaced by Latest Posts in the blink of an eye. Seems like the easiest way to get to a board is to find a post in Latest Posts that will take you to the board you want like a post to Home Cooking, open it up and then click on return to Home Cooking. It is really quite annoying.

  1. Just click on the "carrot" to the right of Boards and you will see the listings as we remember them

      Yes - jfood is correct. If you put your mouse on the arrow to the right of the word Boards, it will take you to the familiar Boards menu.

        I think she's saying that the "pop-up" disappears too quickly...

        Yup, did that to no avail. You see all of the boards for a heartbeat and back to latest posts. Another very frustrating non-fix of a board that did not need breaking

          You don't have your mouse button programmed to double-click instead of single-click, do you?

          What version number of which browser are you using?

          1. re: Candy

            I'm also using IE 6.0and I when I click on the down arrow, the boards list stays up until I click on a specific board.

        2. If you click the little down arrow next to boards and the boards menu only appears for a fraction of a second, that might be a browser-specific problem.

          1. I am using IE 6.0 my mouse is not programmed to double clicks. It took me 6 tries to get to this page and I am effing tired of it.

            1. Candy seems to be correct -- if you click on "Boards", rather than the "carrot", you get "Latest Posts" regardless of where you are. IE or Firefox, same thing. I haven't replicated what she's said about the heartbeat boards, but certainly the current behavior of clicking on Boards is not the way it spozed to be.

                The behaviour you describe is what we expect it to be - clicking on boards takes you to the main page of the boards section of the site (the Chowhound home page, which contains the Latest Posts), the same as clicking on recipes takes you to the main page of the recipes section, etc.

              2. I am so glad I found this post, I have been so frustrated over this quest. Now, thanks to you guys, I found my way. Geesh, on the last board we clicked on "boards", and it took you to all boards. Thanks for the info.
