    What does everyone think now of the latest changes. That wonderful sidebar that has put a sticky plaster over all my GIH frustrations. I really like it now.

    Well, since I only use my laptop for checking GIH that wonderful sidebar has been available to me from day one. :good:

    But I see how it can be frustrating having to do without it. Lucky for you our illustrious leader has, in his benevolence, decided the time was ripe for you to enjoy the benefits of having a sidebar too… reb_bravo :rose:

    Interesting to see how much yelling and screaming protests were needed for any changes to be made. I long ago gave up on the original request. A “Go To First UNREAD post” button.  Maybe I should have kept screaming.  :wacko:

    A “Go To First UNREAD post” button. Maybe I should have kept screaming. :wacko:

    I believe one did appear briefly. I agree, it is still very much needed

    What is a sidebar and where should I be seeing it?  I have the feeling that my experience is not the same as others.  Is it because I am no good with the iPad or have I not got the settings I should have?

    hope you can see the shot of my iPad, showing the blue side bar menu. I never had it until a few days ago. I can’t figure why some would and some wouldn’t. Maybe sjs will know.

    I have sent other screen shots in the past without that side bar.

    In case you don’t know how Stella,  to take an iPad screen shot of what you see, you just press the on off button at the side…at the SAME time as pressing your round home button. It should make a camera click.  Then you go to your photos and it should be in there. Maybe you can send us a screen shot so we know what you can see. Sounds very strange that some have a side bar and others don’t.

    Dont dance around just yet sjs…I was just so grateful to have the sidebar that I haven’t whinged about anything else. Am sure there are some tweaks needed :mail:

    Margarita try what I suggested in another thread. When you click on a new post, there is a time stamp in blue font with the name of the last poster at the top right. Example…it could read,

    ‘ this topic has six voices and was last updated by kiwi 10 minutes ago.’

    Click on that time stamp instead of scrolling to the end of the thread. It will take you to that last post and then you can scroll back if there is more than one reply.

    Just to add that it looks different depending on the method you use in opening the thread…rule of thumb, don’t click on the name as it will just take you to the profile, click on the time stamp, example on ‘two hours three minutes ago.’

      The sidebar “disappears” and moves UNDER the main content if the screen is too narrow.

      First question: do you have your iPad in portrait or landscape view?

    I see what you mean. That’s the way mine was until a few days ago and I feel your frustration. I was going nuts with it and HATED it!  Sjs needs to figure this one out.

    the only thing I have changed is that with my iPad I updated to IOS 9 and after that I got a side bar.

    If you are using iPad, then go to your device settings button, and click on General, and then click update to see if there is an update to download. If there is one, just click on it and let it run its course, don’t touch it till it’s finished downloading and turning itself on and off a couple times, and don’t start the upgrade unless your device is well charged so it doesn’t run out of battery half way through the upgrade.

    sjs! You need to help on this one since others are obviously going to have the same problem.

    Landscape.  I can try portrait to see if it makes a difference but I am more comfortable with landscape format.

    Have you tried shrinking the screen zoom size a bit?

    Actually yes I have but it made no difference?  What am I doing wrong and are others having the same problem and just given up? I don’t want to be at all defeatist but this is beginning to bug me.

    reb_bravo Well, knock me down with a feather – just logged on and there is the sidebar!  Now that is what I call an improvement.

    Yay! Now enjoy it Stella. It really is a huge improvement over no sidebar. Now if he can iron out a few other tiddlywinks bits all will be well. The likes need improvement, as domino says, it’s nice to know who gave the kudos.

    I still do not have the option of starting a new topic – there is nowhere that I can see this, but progress indeed!

    Did you follow what I wrote in the other thread? Just follow it closely and you will see it. Unfortunately the words, ‘new topic’are very small. Almost unable to differentiate them, that’s why you can’t see them.

    Take note sjs

    Sorry to be obtuse but now cannot find the other thread so do not know where to look.

    Stella,

    It’s two topics down from this one and titled “create a new post” by the ever reliable Kolofarthos.

    Reiver, next time you see me please show me how to find two topics down as I don’t seem to have that option on my iPad!

    Ok Stella go to the sidebar and click on reply to new topic thread in the new posts section. I have the explanation there.

    Sjs my red bell is displaying a long list of read posts, even though they have been marked as read. Any fix?

    Something’s wrong with the like button sjs. On the medical thread, it shows three people liked my post as soon as I posted it, also the one before that seem to have the same people liking.

    Yes, I know. Very annoying it is. It was “upgraded” and didn’t work.

    I’ve taken it offline for the time being.

    You’re saying that it’s unlikely that people would like your post? :whistle:

    Lol Ian.

    I can’t like you now because the button has gone…but…I still love the side bar!

    That worked ok. It happened when I started a new post.
