    Suggestion on how to get more readers for each post

    I am only a newbie, but I respectfully suggest that you do what another discussion website does with great results in terms of readership.

    Presently, on the right-hand side of the screen you have a section called "Latest Forum Posts."

    That section lists only a few (about 5) of the latest posts.

    If you set aside a forum that lists ALL the incoming posts in chronological order, all members would be able to see ALL the posts and decide which ones they wish to read and even respond to. The forum would be constantly updated. It would contain, say, the latest 500 posts. Let's call it the Master Forum.

    Currently, members and guests miss many posts because they see only the posts in specific forums that they choose to enter. As a result, they never see many thread titles. It is, of course, too laborious to go to each forum and read through all the listed threads. A Master Forum would solve that problem.

    You have lots of options, for instance one of the better ones is to make friends with people who tend to provide good content, so that their posts pop up on your feed and thus you dont miss them.
    When society throws away the Truth Tellers prepare for the worst, for it is surely coming.
    Open your eyes and your mind and then speak truth..........That is the only way forwards.

    There's also the What's New link at the top left, which will show an extended version of the Latest Forum Posts.

    It's not exactly what you're after, but it's close.

    Wow!

    That's what I was looking for.




    I plan to go there the first thing I do each day.

    Thanks a MILLION!


    Have a really nice day!

    In addition to WillyPetes response, you can also go to "Whats New" and directly under you will see an "Activity Stream". Click on that and it will show you all the new posts that come up when you are online. You can then just open another window to browse through the ones you select and the original page will continue to update each new post for you. These are updated in time order that the post was made while you are online. I use this option because it shows the individual posts, not just the thread topic and it's a quick and easy way to scroll though the topics/responses you may want to address.
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.
