I spoke to NASUPPORT and they said I need to COMMUNITIES TECH SUPPORT but they didn't know how to contact you
My discussion on this page now appears in MY DISCUSSIONS linked page, but not my first discussion. Frustrating!
My original Discussion fails to appear in MY DISCUSSIONS: dated January 26, entitled "Translation Request - a marriage certificate, and a death certificate"
You can always find your discussions (threads you have started) from your profile: https://community.familysearch.org/en/profile/discussions/214028/Bill%20Kaczmarek
As Áine states, yes, you can always find them but you have to find the right list. When I click on your name here, I can see that you have started two discussions:
and clicking on that 2, I can see both of them:
However, if I click on my own icon in the upper right corner:
And click on My discussions I come to this page:
Which only shows topics started under Ask A Question and Suggest An Idea.
To see all my discussions, I have to click on my name in that pop up box to come to here:
where I can scroll down to this section:
to see a different Discussions link and if I click on it, I get a list of all topics I've started:
You can see here that there are two discussions I started in a group that are not on the other list.
Why they have two different lists in which one includes group posts and one does not is a bit of a mystery.
Thanks Gordon. Now I can see one of my two Discussions if I click "My Discussions ... 2 ", ie the link in Quick Links. But I still see only one of the two Discussions @Áine Ní Donnghaile ...unless I know to then click my profile icon on that page, I cannot get to both of my discussions...
Why wouldn't the link on Quick Links "My Discussions ... 2" display TWO discussions?!
That needs fixing!
The Community is based on 3rd-party software. Some things don't work as we expect, but that doesn't mean someone can change it easily or at all.
I'd think the 3rd-party would be able to fix it, no?
Not necessarily. And not without a cost. It's a very basic 3rd party product. Making changes to suit users means someone has to pay to have the program redesigned.
As Áine says, no, the 3rd party can't fix it, as the problem is with how FS has tried to implement the one-size-fits-none modules to organize things. The "groups" module doesn't play well with the "categories" module, and the "My Discussions" element is part of the latter. The "Discussions" list comes at it from a different direction -- starting from the user, rather than from the forum -- and thus includes contributions to both modules.
