    Smile New problem with threading

    In the forum thread "At the expense of sth" in "General Language Discussions" I see tarheel's response but not my own. But if I click on my user_id I see my response but not his/hers (tarheels have two genders ).

    As always, not complaining, just trying to help.

    Re: New problem with threading

    Do you mean this thread? I can't see Tarheel's answer- just yours. What do you see now?

    Re: New problem with threading

    Not this thread. The thread is "At the expense of sth" in "General Members' Discussions."

    Things have changed since I first reported this problem yesterday. If I click on my user-id and find my response to the OP, I can see my response and a further thanking response by the OP, but not tarheel's response. What differs from yesterday is that if I start from the top menu and work down to Forums and then to General Members' Discussions, I cannot see the thread title at all. Yesterday I could see the thread title, and when I clicked on it I could see tarheel's response but not my own.

    Re: New problem with threading

    The thread seems to have been moved into the Idioms area but without leaving a 'moved' notice, which would explain why you can't find the discussion in the members' area: https://www.usingenglish.com/forum/t...se-of-sth-quot

    However I can't see any post from you in there, Probus. Have I got the right thread? If not, can you post a link to it please?
    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.

    Re: New problem with threading

    If the thread has been moved, could something (Tarheel's post) got lost along the way? Also, he may have deleted it.

    Re: New problem with threading

    Interestingly, now, after probus has posted the link, I can see the thread in two 'versions' - one in Ithe idioms and another in the general discussions. I am sure there wasn't any thread in the geeral discussions before I clicked his link.
