Marth, when I go the "People" tab on the home page, there is no Advanced Search for people, just an Advanced Search for posts. Maybe the People Advanced Search is just available to Professionals, not Enthusiasts?

When I get on the D-Word home page, all the topics are clumped together in a single list rather than separated in to the usual 5 or so boxes. Still color-coded, though. Thought it might be my most recent Safari update, but it's doing it in Firefox also. Did I accidentally set some sort of preference I shouldn't have?

Rob, could it be that you need to select one of the options to organize your topics just above where you see the topics listed (I think it's Topic/Category/Date) – the Category one is the one which separates them into the usual 5 or so boxes.

Advanced people search is currently only available to "Professionals".

And the option you select for Topic view (Topic/Category/Date) is remembered for your next visit. So if you end up with the wrong view, just change it by clicking at the top of the list and it will stay that way.

I've been posting on D-Word for a while now. (One of my favorite online discussion boards.) I decided though that there must be a better way to access my recent posts without trying to remember where I posted. I looked at Help and there seems to be a way but, silly me, I can't figure out the directions or finding the links on the home page to access my posts. Is there something I'm missing?

Erica and Peter, thanks; that was easy! Incidentally, Peter, after almost three years here, I should state the obvious: this is the simplest, most user-friendly online discussion site I've ever used. Just excellent work. Thanks!

I want to add to Rob's note of appreciation of this discussion site.

I recall maybe some 13 years ago when Doug proposed that we use the internet for AIVF board members to communicate & give updates on our different committee activities, etc... and I was not the most supportive of board member buddies... oh well. live and learn.

Just got my first iPhone.

It's coo and all, but every time I go to The D-Word, it automatically fills in – and then it says that there is no page at the address.

Try as I might, I cannot get the browser to go to, it always puts in that /iphone.html

Surely, people use the D-wrod on the the iPhone – what is the deal?

Hmm. I mostly use my iPhone. That never happens here (iPhone 4).
