Computer Vs Phone
#1

So on my MacBook, I do not get the latest updates on threads whereas my phone is more current with what's going on. Both are Apple products. Is there a setting on my computer I need to adjust? Basically my computer makes it seem as if there is no activity here. Weird!

Simon, My Macbook and Iphone work just the same. Sure wish I knew what to do to make yours run like mine.

Simon,
When I log in to Guru's site I click on the "View New Posts" shortcut and it brings up a list of the posts since the last time I logged on.
I get emails notifying me of responses to any subscribed posts in my email. When I check email on my phone or computer it brings up that thread when I click on the shortcut.
How do you operate your computer vs. phone?
I use windows pcs and an Iphone.

Jon,
I clicked on both of those links and they worked for me on my PC and my phone.
Right now I don't know what the solution is. I'm not well versed in MAC. The few times I've been in front of one I've had to really burn brain cells to work it.

So here is a case in point. I posted in the generator thread about the blower and it does not show up on my Mac. In fact, for me to find it, I need to go look at what I posted to see if there are any responses. Interesting enough, I did subscribe to that thread! Maybe it is my router firewall? I dunno. I'll stick to my day job of being an electrical contractor...

Have a great weekend guys!

I guarantee I can help you, Simon. Just gonna be a bit of poking until I can figure things out for you.

Let's start from the basics/beginning.

1. Be sure you're signed in.
2. Make sure your browser has COMPLETELY been quit...aka you don't accidentally have extra "Tabs" or windows open, whether in the background or not.
3. When you LAUNCH your Browser with a brand new session, be sure to go to VIEW NEW POSTS.

Now, remember, if you ARE logged in on both devices, and you access the NEW POSTS...guess what? Those posts are NO LONGER NEW, in the "eyes" of the other browsers!! When you access the website, a cookie is registered, and it timestamps when you were here. SOOOO, if you were to go back into this site with another device...those threads won't appear.

Let's start there.

Steve, I’m going to try logging out and closing the browser on the Mac. I haven’t been in front of the computer yet.
