Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
Random thought to the powers that be on this site....It is very easy to find groups but very difficult to go back and find a discussion if you can't remember to which group it was originally posted. Would be nice to have some kind of index for discussions
Not only is it sometimes difficult to go back to a specific discussion, but sometimes I get an email notification and it will take me back to the beginning of the discussion and there could be 20 pages... so I can't find the whole message, just the little clip in my email message. The reply might have been on page 10 or 15 and maybe it is at the end. If you click on the link it should take you to it directly.
It is easy to get off topic and get discussing something that has nothing to do with the title for what you replied to, but if you take it to a new title, then someone doesn't know to follow and would totally miss your reply.
Thank you for the great suggestion. We're always looking for ways to improve upon the site.
We are looking for ways to make things a little easier for everyone to find what they want. There is a discussion section - the "forum" link in the header navigation. But, we're finding that people are using the group discussions far more often than the individual message board.
There are a few things that might help make things easier to find for you.
First, try using the site search option. This should appear at the top of the site, to the right of your name and a "sign out" link.
Second, on individual discussions, there should be the "follow" link. That will send the email update - although with a hot discussion topic that might be overwhelming.
Any other suggestions or problems are more than welcome!
Thanks for responding. I had not used the Forum link yet and it is very handy to find a general discussion (but not one contained within a group). The "follow" link I have already put to good use. Here is what prompted this suggestion: I was trying to find a discussion posted by Garnie Bethea regarding blocks. There had not been any activity in a while so I had not received any notifications. I could not remember into which group she posted the discussion. Thank goodness there are only 40+ groups because I just had to look through each one until I happened upon her original post. I will admit I did not use the search option and will try this the next time I am looking for something.
Again, thank you.
I wanted to add a suggestion. the home page only shows a certain number of posts. You can't scroll down and see previous ones. I would sometimes like that option. to scroll and see if there was something I might have missed.
