    When I got on this new site, a pop up bulletin showed that I need to disable my ad blocker. I didn't know I even had one.lol. I do see the ads like Tbolt, ect., but not the usual rolling ads. This bulletin shows up every time I go to a different page. Until I delete the bulletin, I can't do anything.
    On my profile page I can't find the "latest started threads" feature. That saves alot of navigation through the site when I want to reference something I started. I also use that to find what someone else started on their profile page.

    I get the same popup as you described. Very annoying! I do run an ad blocker on purpose, though...if I wanted to see all the ads, I wouldn't run the ad blocker. :)

    EDIT: Thanks to Google, I now am able to block the pop up.

    What browser are you using? Is it possible that you have unknowingly installed a popup blocker plugin? However, I do think that the popup blocker detection window is a bit intrusive, I'll work on changing that to a simple notice on top.

    On your profile page, click on the Recent Activity tab. You should see your latest threads and posts in that section.

    I've changed the adblock detection message to a system notice displayed at the top of the forum, but I will not disable the feature. Without the revenue generated from these adverts, there would be no "here".

    Thanks.

    I am using Firefox. I might have uploaded something, but not sure how or how to disable it. I know just enough about computers to get me in trouble.lol. I'm not very tech savvy with them.
    Thanks for the "recent activity" tip. I'll try it.

    I used that "find latest started threads" and "latest posts" also. I used that often to find my own threads, recently posted stuff, and other members threads too.
    When looking for older info, I often will remember who posted it, or who's thread it was in.
    I can't find anything similar on the new site. I will definitely miss that if it's gone.

    I think you are looking for 'view all recent posts', under new posts. Under forums > new posts, you should see:
    https://lilhonda.com/index.php?find-new/posts&recent=1

    Also, you can select 'Your Content' under you profile page popup/dropdown..

    Thanks,

    Ok, I think I found it.

    If I go to my profile page.
    Then I can click "postings" near the top of the page.
    Then on the postings page, near the bottom, I can click the "find all threads by kirrbby" button.
    That is what I was looking for.
    I'll try it with another member now.

    Yep, that works. Tyty

    BTW...the recent posts page is the one I like to use when checking in on lilHonda.
    But on my profile page,or another member's profile, I can click on recent activity. That shows that members latest posts, in order. That was the other info I was looking for.

    Recent activity, and, find all threads by...

    I found my threads by clicking on my profile page, then clicking "information" and the links at mid page showed up. They are colored blue.
