New Version Constantly Shows Full Boards

jfood Jan 24, 2011 09:01 AM

The new version released this morning seems to have a new feature, and it is not a positive IMO. Unless I am doing something wrong each time I click on athread I see the Board Choices across the top.

Prior to this morning's release, if I chose to have it collapse, it alwas was, now instead of the OP and the first response I see the West Coastin column one.

Has this changed? Was it on purpose? Is this realor a mistake? and is there a workaround or plans to go back to yesterday's if is is a misstake?

    If you can selectively delete cookies, try removing any instances of the show_chowhound_options cookie, and see if that helps.

        This is happening for me too and I'm on Firefox 3.6.12. I removed several show_chowhound_options cookies but the board selections keep expanding every time I load a new thread, even though I keep closing them.

          Follow-up: I tried logging out and back in to see if would help, but the behaviour is the same.

            And I'm on Firefox 3.6.13, and it's happening every time as well. No "show_chowhound_options" cookie showed up for me. I will try and clean ALL cookies out and see if that works.

            But this is irritating having to close the full "My Boards" tab every time.

              AND I just deleted ALL cookies, which forces a new log-in here at CH - and the full Boards menu is still in pop-down mode. Frustrating, Jacquilynne. Something that worked before no longer does.

          Happening to me too with Firefox/3.6.12 but not with Chrome.

          Deleted cookies to no avail.

            It's suddenly happening to me, too, never happened before today. I'm on IE8.

              and this is happening when you have the tab for "Show Saved Boards" activated?
