    I'll pay better attention to what I'm doing. It's not beyond me to screw up...at least once a day.

    Ok...I paid attention this morning. I checked in a few times between 8-11:30 this morning. I hit "new posts" each time...and then just now I saw 5 threads for the first time. One in particular "Church in Sunshine" was created early this morning and had a lot of posts. I'll see if it's computer vs mobile devices over the next few days because I check in using 2 of each. Thats my first thought anyway.

    I also use two, sometimes three devices - iMac, iPad, iPhone. I wonder...

    Church in the Sunshine was created yesterday morning at 9:56 BST. I wonder if this is a timing / local clocks issue. @Hamish Gill ?

    Interesting...I didn't see it using new posts until after 11:00 EST today. I wonder if the Chris post at 9:33 kicked it in gear? That really sounds weird though.
    Also FYI... I am in a habit of checking alerts...then new posts...then if I have time I go to the main page and check each forum. I almost always find something new in the forum look. Maybe that sequence does something?
    Also 2...for me...this isn't horrible...just curious.

    I think I found something. It maybe how all the different devices handles cache or cookies...or how I've got then set up. I thinking it's operator error on my part actually. I am looking at all my screens on all my stuff...and they are all different. I doubt that it's on the server side as I look at it. The server just checks my name and password I would think.

    Thanks Glenn. I use the same browser on the Mac Pro and the two MBPs I use for the site. I have also looked on a Windows machine in the office in the UK (I am now in Germany and it is all Mac here). I use Private Browsing in Safari. Hopefully this be useful to @Hamish Gill .

    I am absolutely baffled! I seem to get the same "new posts" on all my devices .... ?

    All Apple products? Does the server just look at password and name...or IP?

    yes, both apple ...
    I dont know Glenn, I would have thought it would be a user thing rather than IP though

    I use fixed IPs in the UK but in Germany it is dynamic. I have had no problem with either.

    Me also. It appears that Rob and I are the only ones who noticed anything. I'll speak for myself...it's on my side and I'll deal with it. If I miss something...I'll blame @Pete Askew ....Or maybe the sporadic electron God.

    Dave - I don't know if it helps, but I almost always fail at the first post from work. I just click on the message again and the post button becomes active again and it often works the second time :)
