Stupid question: But I can't collapse the discussion page if I log on. I'm sure there is a way but I don't see it. Must be going blind.Help. Patrick
When you are viewing the thread, try hitting the "collapse thread" button in the upper right, just above the "reply " link.
And, as you mention that they are collapsed to start with and open when you log in -
go to the My Settings page ( the link is on the left side of the main Discussion Home page ) , where you'll see a Display Preferences
- click on that and about halfway down you'll see Default Forum View.
That will probably be set at 'Threaded', click on the little pull-down-the-manu arrow and select 'Collapsed' instead. Click on that, then click on the Save Profile Changes thingie on the bottom right of the page and voila' -
hope that's of use
