My Posts Don't Appear on the Category Thread List

I just posted a reply to a poster on the Southern CT board. Normally that would put that post on the top of the thread list. But it's not there. In fact, I had to search for the thread in order to post a reply. Even though I had read a post from that thread a day or two ago it wasn't on the list. This has happened a few other times. Very frustrating.

  1. Ok, I just found my post. It was on page 3 of Southern CT. It said it had been posted a few minutes ago but it was placed between threads posted a month or so ago. Strange. Help!

      At the top of the thread list, you can choose to sort the threads by "replies" or "last reply." If you sort by "last reply," the thread with your recent post will be at the top of the list - that's what you want. If you sort by "replies," the thread with the most replies will be at the top of the list - that's what you're seeing, I think.

        Thx, small h. It. IS set on last reply but post is not on page one. Do moderators read Site Talk? Can a moderator fix my problem?

          Oops, you were right, small h. I tried hitting last reply again and now my post is high up on the thread. Thx so much.

            You're welcome! Glad I could help.

    2. Maybe they're testing that blocking feature that is so in-demand.
