Saved Boards Keeps Expanding

Chrome on XP. I've cleared my cache. Will not stay collapsed.

  1. Tried deleting all the cookies, and a new session. Still expanded.

      I'm finding the same thing Firefox 3/Mac.

      1. re: MplsM ary

        Same here. This seems to be a new problem.

      2. Diito for IE8. This is really annoying and the board is running super slow to load.

          Same here in IE8. It doesn't remember that I've collapsed the boards at the top of the page, and each time I open a page, it shows them expanded.

        2. Also on Chrome on Lion.

          1. Same here, Chrome on Windows 7. Setting is no longer sticky.

            1. Also with FF7.0.1 on XP

              1. Same for me on both Chrome / Windows XP Home and Firefox (whatever the latest version is). VERY annoying that they don't remain closed every time I click on my Profile or another board!

                1. Any chance we could get a response from the Chowhound Team and/or Engineering?

                    Ditto - was just coming here to :::bump::: the thread to see if a fix ticket had been put in for this issue? REALLY irritating!

                  2. Sorry for the delay on this one, I'm a little surprised it wasn't reported sooner. We're looking into the issue. Thank your patience, and our apologies for the annoyance in the interim.

                        Thanks so much for responding, Engineering! I *am* a bit relieved to know it's not just me & that I'm not going crazy (well, that's always been up for question no matter what...)

                          1. re: Engineering

                            Any chance this might be fixed soon? Super annoying, especially on smaller screens. Thanks!

                              This was reported on Oct. 20, and the "interim" has now expanded to Dec. Any update???

                              1. Chrome Adblock will compress the saved boards space, BUT blocking that space obviously takes away the links too. I use bookmarks for the boards I frequent so, works fine for me. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/de...

                                  I was using Chrome for awhile & it didn't resolve the issue.

                                  1. re: threedogs

                                    One also needs to install and use Adblock. For some reason it doesn't quite 'take' the first time, but after setting it twice it works well. I kept the top tabs "Choose a Board" "Show Saved Boards" so I can unblock it once they fix the issue.

                                      It is very frustrating not having had any update for more than a month. Frustrating. Irritating. The feeling of being back-burnered. Or ignored.

                                      Is *anything* going on with this, Engineering?

                                      1. re: LindaWhit

                                        Totally agree. Yet if we post one note that strays just a bit from the subject being discussed, the mods are right there, deleting messages... I love this site but this is getting way too frustrating.

                                    2. I don't know if this is any help to resolving this for engineering, but the save boards only remain expanded when logged in.

                                      If logged out and reading the boards, then the button works correctly. Hit collapse and the boards reamin collapsed.

                                      I do want to stress that this is NO workaround as you can't read updates to previous posts, but hae to read the whole post.

                                      Still, if you can make the saved boards work logged on like it works logged off it would be great.

                                      1. Is it my imagination, or did this problem just get fixed? Because my saved boards are staying collapsed now.

                                            Seriously, thanks for posting that it is fixed. I wasn't checking it daily. And thanks engineering. This is wonderful.
