I miss "my saved boards" already!

Joebob Jul 14, 2012 05:45 PM

Anyone else? Am I right people? (Not that it would let me go backwards from one saved board to the whole list without freezing, but I still miss my collection. Suck.)

    They are on the bar at the top of the page right under the CHOW header.

      Thank you. I'm very glad they have reappeared.

      Yah, I was disheartened to see the notice saying "that module is no longer on this page" and had to read the blurb twice before I realized they weren't gone, they just weren't visible. It took a little getting used to for the next couple of visits. As I approach geezerhood I definitely don't adapt to small changes as quickly as I used to...

        but WHY do they have to be hidden, and WHY did they have to made accessible by TWO CLICKS and sometimes three if you don't get it right?? this really, really BUGS.

          No extra clicks needed - just hover the mouse pointer over MY SAVED BOARDS and the list will drop down.

            yes i know. it usually disappears before i can click on one of the boards, so that i have to click on MY SAVED BOARDS and then pick the particular board i want from the next screen. before they were all visible.

              This was happening to me for a couple of days but I thought, with all of the posts abut server problems, etc., that it was a temporary glitch. And indeed, the drop down seems to have righted itself as of yesterday - for me anyway. Something must be up.

                This happens to me sometimes. I have found that if I hover over the right side, rather than the left side or the middle, the drop down stays put for me to select a board.

                    Hi Mariacarmen,

                    I'm not able to reproduce this anywhere. Can you give me some more info on what OS version and browser version you're using so I can try to test with the same settings?

                      it's the same for me on IE and on Firefox.... i hover over My Saved Boards, the drop-down opens, but as i move the curser down to select a board, the drop-down closes. so that i have to actually click on My Saved Boards so that it opens the menu completely, and then select a board. 9 times out of 10. every once in a while, it allows me to actually make a selection.

                      regardless, even if it was working properly, it's one more click than what we used have to do to get to our Saved Boards. i know, i know... "ooh horrors! one more click!" it's a piddling complaint, but why did it have to change?

                        Hi Mariacarmen,

                        If it's working properly, it shouldn't be one more click. When you move your mouse over "My Saved Boards" the menu item pops up without clicking. Are you clicking on "My Saved Boards" instead of just moving your mouse over it?

                          no, as i said, i hover, the drop down appears, i move the curser down to make a selection, but most of the time the drop down disappears before i can click on a board. so then i am forced to click on My Saved Boards in order to access that page.

                            alright, strangely it is now working on Mozilla, which i use at home, but not IE, which i use at work...

            The new setup seems to have deleted my 8th board.
            If I want to view it I either have to find an old post or go to the URL and type in the proper number.

              bbqboy, is this still happening? It looks like you figured it out (below)

                Well, yes, but I don't know how it got deleted. Also had no idea to click on the star.
                I saved them when the boards changed and never thought about it till they weren't there anymore.:)
                Thanks Dave.

              How does one save a board?

                Click on the "star" next to the board name when you open it.

                    me too. I resaved my 8th board. Can we now save more than 8?

                      I have 10 saved on mine. i seem to recall one of the mods/engineering saying that one can now save an unlimited number of boards, and they would all show up, but I could be wrong. I'd send an email to the site and ask.

                        You are correct - you can now save as many boards as you want. I currently have 20 in my Saved Boards dropdown, and it's working fine for me.

                Wow, that's a very hidden feature.
