Then I'll leave it as is...

Argh - CL remove this thread please.

I have this problem whenever I'm responding to a post in a thread, that I'm subscribed to, when I respond directly, instead of placing the post at the bottom of an existing thread, it creates a new thread - which is not my intention.

I guess I haven't figured out how to use this forum correctly.

I know how to normally use the forum in posting responses. The problem in the thread, occurs when I click the link from an Email notification that a response to my thread is made, only then, when I post a response, does it create a new thread. This doesn't happen when I visit the forums directly to make a response. Don't know if that's a bug, or if its me.

When I respond to an Email notification with link to the forum - it only says submit at the bottom. There is no "quote, new reply or new thread" there's only submit - so I assume its going to post a reply to the existing thread, but instead it starts a new thread... that's my issue.

I just subscribed to this thread, so when the next post occurs I'll look into this.

I'm using the "prosilver" theme, but if it seems to work fine there, I'll try the other theme...

Here's what I see. First my prosilver theme:

Then the bo2Soft theme:

As you can see, the bo2Soft theme has a new topic button next to the post reply button. Perhaps the OP is simply hitting the wrong button?

OK, since I've figured out that this is my ineptness that caused the problem - can we delete this thread now?

While Big_Mac does have a point, I want to clarify soemthing: For a sufficient level of goodies delivered to my home address (available via PM), I'm sure this thread could "accidentally" be deleted while I'm cleaning up spambots or performing some other board-related maintenance...

Let me know if you're interested. ;)

:mrgreen:

(I'm j/k. There's no way you pay me enough to remove it. 8))
