Why is it that even though I just signed up to the forum, I still can't see all the threads. Can anyone help me?

You might need to clear your cookies, or check your settings related to your cookies and make sure that you're allowing the ones for thrillnetwork.com. I just looked over your account and found nothing that would prevent it.

What do I do to clear them?

What browser are you using? Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari?

Internet Explorer

Ok, make sure you're not on thrillnetwork.com when you do it.

Go to tools > Internet Options

On the General Tab, click on "Delete"

Then make sure you have checkboxes next to cookies, history, and temporary internet files. Then, hit delete. Close IE out, then reopen it.

Failing that, try another browser like Firefox or Google Chrome.

Did both and still no good.

Are you running security software (adblockers, firewall software, etc.) that may prohibit the proper functioning of the site? Have you also tried it on another computer?

I'm on another computer right now, and I still can't see the forum. I dunno if the ad blockers or whatever really make a difference. I'm still trying to figure out what's up.

I came from Netscape before over the years into Firefox so I've haven't had this issue.

When you say you can't see the threads, what do you mean? Do you mean you go into the Roller Coasters/Thrill Rides/Other Thrills forum and can't see all the threads within it? Or do you mean you cannot see all the forums? If the former is the case, you might try changing your display options. Display options are on the bottom left of the forum. Set that to a different date.

Can you take a screen shot so we can see the problem?

I just did that and it sucks. I can only see a few threads while doing it. Why can't I just see all threads at once?

Please take a screen shot to show us what exactly you mean.

Part of the problem may just be traffic. We don't get tons of posts a day, so there aren't going to be hundreds of threads showing up on the front of the forum.

Try this...

http://www.thrillnetwork.com/boards/profile.php?do=editoptions

There is a place where you can show the Default Thread Age Cut Off. By default for everyone, it's 30 days. You can adjust that accordingly.
