To moderator, is there a way to respond to a post in the thread directly rather than being at the end of line and quoting, w/o personal message? Rather than the thread being a line could it be more of a flower?


No. Most recent posts are always at the end of the thread.

Can we get a tool to display threads as most recent first?

the "go to bottom" arrow only goes to the bottom of the page, not the bottom of the thread. The ability to change the order or display of threads would be welcome.


The most recent post in a thread will always show at the end of the thread.

I have a couple questions.. I am confused about how private messages work in the fan connect area.. I only noticed that I had private messages because of an email I received (no notification comes up when I sign in, or one that is noticeable near my login info, like other forums). I clicked the link in my email and it took me to my inbox, where it was displayed. Underneath the message is a blank box that says, [write a reply].

So I typed out my response, clicked [add reply], but at first, the box never changed. But after I refreshed my page (F5) and it showed the message I replied with. On many other forums I belong to, it says message sent, and it is saved in my sent folder, or if I opt out of this feature it's not saved. This forum doesn't do that, and I thought my message had not gone through. It shows the whole conversation in my inbox and sent box, now, but not sure if it shows it in their inbox and sent box.

Now, I am wondering if that message was sent to the person who sent me the message? Does it show up in their inbox? Do I have to go to their profile and click on something to send them a new message, or does my reply automatically go to them?

I tried to send another message not knowing if it worked, and it showed my first message but it showed it on my page. So I am not sure if the people I have been trying to reply to are getting my messages or if they are just staying in my inbox/sent box? When I saw I had sent two similar messages, I clicked to delete the nearly identical message I had re-sent, since I didn't know if it worked.

Does this mean I actually sent them two messages, or, when I deleted the duplicate message from my sent box is it only sending them the first one, or have they gotten either of them or both? I am just really confused on how each page and the whole messaging system works here. I am guessing that I just sent duplicate messages to people when I wasn't sure if they went through. I am not sure, though, since it shows the whole conversation in both my inbox and my sent box, but not the ones that I thought were duplicates and deleted from the conversation in my inbox/sent box.

If anyone who has private messaged me reads this, have you received my replies, and was it just one, or have you gotten a similar or duplicate message? You can PM me again, to let me know what you have received, or you can just give me a brief answer here. Or if someone is familiar with the messaging system understand what I am asking, feel free to chime in!

I think ideally, it would be best to keep messages sent to others in the sent box, once they have been sent and delivered, and to keep the received messages from others in your inbox, until you delete them. The whole conversations should only be shown when someone is quoted in a reply, and these would show in the sender's sent box, and they would show in the receiver's inbox.


You should see a notice next to Inbox in the Connect area alerting you that you have a message.

There is a sent box that will show messages sent.

The other user will see the reply in their Inbox.

Are you sure you are sending messages and not posting to your Wall or some other user's Wall?

I think an awesome feature to add to this forum would be a real time chat room! Seriously think about that! I have been on various forums, and adding a chat room is usually an awesome place where regular members can get to know each other better, real time. Something like they have on deadvids.com/dv would be awesome!

Edit: Seems that deadvids is down at the moment, unfortunately! They used to play Dead videos, Furthur videos, JGB, etc, and it had a chat room for members to chat while watching it.

Also, a feature that would allow us to click all new topics/posts since our last visit would be awesome as well, and it would make it easier for us to not miss new posts when we don't log in for a few days.


We may be able to add this feature to the Connect section in the future. Adding it to the list of requested upgrades.

Thank you very much! I love the real time chat, and would likely be a VERY regular member in there, should you implement the feature. If there is any way I could be of any help, if/when it gets up and running, I'd be more than happy to do whatever I can!

Love the forum. Thanks for doing this!
I have seen an element to other forums that I think would be a great addition to this one. Forgive me if it is already an option and I am overlooking it somehow. What I'm thinking of is for this site to have the ability to seperate for each individual user the posts that they have read from the ones that they have not read. Once logged in the user would see the list of topics and by each topic or "thread" there would be a statement of "X number of total responses & X number of unread resposes". This would help make the site much more user friendly and effiecient. Delphi Forums has this capability incorporated into their basic, free membership. Just an idea.
All the best!

We need an android app, and we ALL know Phil and Bob LOVED Steve Jobs and vice versa so maybe Apple will help for the I Phone and I Pad.
PLEASE AND THANK YOU FROM ALL OF US!!

Help! I'm trying to post a picture and it won't let me. When I attach a file, instead of saying the entire file location it starts wit Fakepath, and then the file name. When i hit submit, it doesn.t submit it just disappears. I've tried about a dozen times. It is JPEG file. What do I need to do different?

I hit insert every time! I finally figured it out by downloading the picture from my facebook page onto my desktop and then attaching them that way. It would not let me attach from my hard drive. Oh well. Thanx.

And another bump for the video thread!

In response to a couple of recent questions, here are some tips/directions on picture and video posting, since I always need detailed instructions on this kind of thing:

A couple of other issues to be aware of:

1) If you're using IE9 you will not see ANY of the insert/format options that are available in the Reply section; it'll just be blank gray screen with headers, and nothing will upload (true for avatars, too), though you can insert basic text posts. IE9 will work better if you use "compatibility mode", you will see the icons then, but some features, like the spell check, still aren't functional with IE9. I strongly recommend using another browser such as Firefox around here.

2) It looks like the original directions in this post for loading a picture seems to require the use of Photobucket or another photo site. But I've always just uploaded images directly from my hard drive without problems; perhaps that's changed since this was first posted. To get a picture in the body of the post, hit "image link" in the Boardcode section, then hit "Add File" in the Attachment section below. You can then browse for your pic, hit "open" and then "insert file", and the correct coding will be there. You won't actually see if it posted correctly until after you hit "submit", however.

3) To post a video, under boardcode click the “video” icon; then use the Provider drop down menu to select (usually) YouTube; cut and paste the url of the video that you want to post into the "URL" box, and click “insert video”. Again, you won’t see the video until after hitting submit and posting.

I figured out how to embed a you tube video with an Ipad instead of just a link.

Click "Share" on You Tube video you like then Click "Email" and your Ipad will open up an email window. Then "Select All" and copy the web address from your email, close the email, and paste the web address on the Furthur site.
