    I post questions one day before.

    "Everyday I check answers of the questions that I post one day before on the forum" (I mean I post a question today and check it the next day).

    Please check.

    not a teacher

    "Every day I check the answers to questions I have posted on the forum the day before."

    There are other possibilities, but this is the one that occurs to me first.

    Re: I post questions one day before.

    If it's true that you check the answers to the previous day's questions every day, why don't you respond to them?

    The first variant that occured to me was "Every day I check the answers to the questions I have posted on the forum the day before." Is it OK?
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    Not a teacher nor a native speaker.

    I do but when I have to go to the hospital or I am not at home then only I don't check.

    Re: I post questions one day before.

    "Tom's parents check everyday, whether he has been to the school the day before." Is it correct?

    I'd like to draw your attention to the following moment. In the UK you're likely to hear "go to hospital" rather than "go to the hospital". I think it's more an American thing. I'm not sure though.

    Don't use present perfect with a specific time reference.
    I posted on the forum the day before.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    It is OK, yes, but it's also fine without 'the'.
