Cpod, FWIW, I can only see less than a half of a page of all the conversations I was participating in. That includes being able to look at lesson conversations. I think for cpod, the location is under the "conversations" tab, under "all my groups" pull down menu.

I'm afraid I don't understand where we can find the problem. Is it that you're not seeing half of your conversations in the dashboard? Or in the new profile page? Do you have a link to the page where this is happening? Thanks.
It is happening to me too. The conversations cuts off halfway down and then there is some html garbly goop. It seems it is impossible to see conversations beyond that point. It seems to start at the 'Study Strategy' post.
Catherine, it's the Conversations page we've been having so many problems with. Yesterday, a user's comment (not to place any blame on that person of course) had a bit of text copy-and-pasted from the dialogue tab, with the rollovers; it seemed like that copy-and-pasted bit was setting off something that made the format of the entire page beneath that one comment go all off, all over everywhere. In other words, things above the comment in question were as normal. I'm sure someone among the staff was seeing all that.
I thought yesterday's problems were from formatting in our comments. As I said in the thread below, when I used blue color text all comments beneath mine in the Conversations page turned blue. Same thing happened with bolding. I don't know about today.
Thanks yes I reported this problem to the tech. team yesterday when I found out about it. I'm not currently having the problem on my end. It's clearly still buggy for others though. Will talk to the tech team about it.
I usually ignore all chengyu, I don't want to be a wanker. Ok, I am actually too inept to use all bar almost none. But this is so beautiful it is worth risking making a fool of myself. Thanks Changye, I love it. I've saved it to my learn and use file.

Wow, I think I fixed it. It seems to be a problem with my comment here:
CPod, you might want to study it. FYI, it messed up Firefox more than Chrome.
PS: What happened to the hyperlink function on the toolbar?
"What happened to the hyperlink function on the toolbar?"
Catherine said yesterday they were working on this, and that it would be fixed 'soon'.
Who knows what soon means in Chinese Pod parlance.
Perhaps it will be done by Christmas.
I have an update regarding this. What we're introducing is a function that automatically converts text to hyperlinks (while you're typing). The tech. team mistakenly took away the hyperlink icon early, so in the meantime you can use html tags to include a link in your comment:
Sorry for the inconvenience. Will update you when the change has been published to the site.
Two questions about that.
1. Previously we had the option of opening the link in the same window, or a new window. I like to have it open in a new window. How will that option be incorporated?
2. It doesn't sound like a complicated function to introduce (although my previous question may complicate matters). Could you give us a rough time frame.
I'm no expert, but I think if you can make a link, you just add the target="_blank" within the same bracket, following the URL:
href="http://abc.org" target="_blank">your link
I had to omit the beginning

Wow, according to my conversations page, go_many just posted the 65th comment on the 中文 post I just published one minute ago. If one clicks on my post, nobody has commented yet (as to be expected). Does anyone else see this?
Actually, I just fixed it myself.
My post in 'A Phone Call to the Moving Company' was causing the problem.
Apparently, the Paste From Word button is not filtering out all the crap that it should. As soon as I edited that stuff out, the Conversations Page was fine.
No, Its not fine. My post is still causing the rest of the page to go bold. And my edit time has elapsed.
CPod please note. One post should not affect the rest of the Conversations page.
Hm the page is not OK for me. It ends abruptly with the header--just the header--of Xiaophil's (wait, I just realized we're all seeing different things in our Conversation pages to begin with; we're not all in the same Groups ...) new post in the 中文吧 Group.
