    Sometime during the last few days I've noticed that the 'new posts' side bar that came up when I visited the site is no longer showing up. I've search through the preferences in my account to see if something had changed, but nothing obvious. I do have the sidebar preference enabled, but I don't know what it's actually enabling - evidently not the 'new posts' window. I'm using a fairly recent iPad pro running the lastest verion of Safari. I've tried Taptslk but don't like it for other reasons. Anyone know what I need to change or enable? - Terry

    Do you mean you have the sidebar preference ticked? Because on my account that preference is labelled "Opt out of sidebar" and would hide the side bar from view (I just checked and it does hide the sidebar). That is the only control on the sidebar that I'm aware of. Sorry.

    Thanks for your reply. No I don't have it tic'd, and so I shouldn't be opting out of it. - Terry

    On the mobile devices, and only on mobile the right side bar is disabled to make the mobile works better for all that way.
    To find the NEW POST and RECENT POSTS click on New Post at top of the page. You'll be able to see all the New Posts (the ones you have not seen yet) or the Recent Posts (all the recent ones, including your own).

    Ahhhh finally hmem is iPad friendly. Can't express how angering it is to be reading , and the page randomly reloading. I always felt it was equivalent to some one walking up and shutting the book your reading. So for me good deal!!!

    I looked around to find the new posts but not seeing it. Is there a specific icon somewhere?

    The 'new posts' button is along the dark blue bar at the very top of the page. I just checked my iPad and it didn't show up until I logged in, but it is there now.
