Can we display conversations in a conversation format, i.e., the entire series of posts in one thread, instead on one message per post?

Not sure if I understand the question. It is just as before the upgrade - "reply" will keep em in the same "thread"

No, it isn't for me. My inbox shows each individual message in all conversations as opposed to a list of conversations containing messages.

My ouitbound messages show up in my inbox.

I don't know what device you are using, nor browser, but a screenshot will help.

PC browser.

If I click on the 'Inbox' link on my home page:


I get this view:



As you can see, both inbound and outbound messages are displayed separately instead of being arranged in a conversation.

If I click on the link in the e=mail I receive when a conversation is opened or added to, e.g.:


I get a correct conversational arrangement. However, clicking on the 'view all conversations, has the message by message view.

Clixcking on 'my content' also presents a message-by-message list instead of a list of threads.

That is a forum thread, and those appear correctly. It is the 'inbox' and 'my content' links that are arranged as individual message,s not threads.

What happens when you click on 'inbox' and 'my content'?

When I click "Inbox" upper right hand, between my username and Alerts, to the left of the Search bar), then "Show All" the are all there sorted newest reply first, and by Subject:
(never mind the BLACKED OUT participants, obscured for privacy)

When I get the email notification and click "View all your conversations" from that email, I still get the same view as below.

I am not a computer nerd, but what I would suggest is to clear your browser's cache/cookies, restart the browser (or even the PC), log back in and see if it is the same.

I not only deleted cache but deleted all the cookies for this site. No joy.

If no one else is experiencing this, I'll assume the problem is on my end.

what browser on the PC? There are many to choose from.

I use Firefox and Chrome and the screenshot is same on both.

Firefox 61.0.1 (latest). I get the same results with Microsoft Edge, as well as with Safari on an iPad.

After looking at it further, it looks like the the conversations that preceded the software change did not get arranged into conversations. Since the outbox is not available anymore, the outbound messages were merged into the inbox.

Is this thread about wanting a CHATBOX? I think it was the most popular thing on the old system. I get replies from mods as they are still working on it... still waiting...
