Please share the secret...

at the top under the 'Mumsnet Talk' heading it says 'customise' click through and its in there! you can even choose the colours!

mrsjay Sat 15-Feb-14 12:45:36

what clour did you choose grin I still cant work out how to link properly it does my head in

QueenofKelsingra Sat 15-Feb-14 12:59:27

I have the dark lavender for my own posts and forest green for the OPs! grin I am far to proud of myself about this!!

have no idea how to link though, sorry!

Thankyou, I never knew this and Ive been on mums net for years! Its brilliant!

Pipbin Sat 15-Feb-14 14:52:21

I didn't know that until today. I felt like such an idiot.

GingerMaman Sat 15-Feb-14 14:57:00

Wow I didn't know that! Does it work on the apps too?

Joysmum Sat 15-Feb-14 15:56:16

I didn't know that either. I much prefer just reading carefully what the OP says and skim reading (at most) what everyone else says.

Thank you wine cake thanks

QueenofKelsingra Sat 15-Feb-14 16:19:06

ginger I don't know about apps as I only use MN on laptop.

Glad I'm not the only daft one and have been of some help!

Joysmum Sat 15-Feb-14 16:20:18

Just wish there was a way of clicking on a thread so it remembers the last post you saw and takes you to the next new one without the need to scroll.

MothershipG Sat 15-Feb-14 16:28:33

Joysmum There is! It's the bookmark button, hover your cursor over a post and it magically appears in the bottom left corner.

I only found this the other day too (well, I read it in someone else's post to be honest!) - but you can also change the amount of posts that you see at one time when you click on the thread!

So for years I have been seeing 25 posts per page and having to click to view them all in one thread, and now it just does it by itself!

A thread that I can see all at once with coloured in posts by the OP - it's been an epiphany!!!

QueenofKelsingra Sat 15-Feb-14 16:44:08

gold star for mothership thank you! smile

ele yes that's another thing I've just discovered!

MothershipG Sat 15-Feb-14 16:46:51

A gold star? For me? I'm so proud. <wipes tear> wink

HTH grin

anothernumberone Sat 15-Feb-14 16:48:01

You have changed my life OP.

Lovethebubbles Sat 15-Feb-14 17:00:33

Wow! Thanks OP, officially love you! Wonder if it works on the app too...

QueenofKelsingra Sat 15-Feb-14 17:25:45

<takes a bow> glad to have been of service! grin

no more thinking 'over 100 posts I cant be arsed to find the OPs so wont bother reading it' for me!

Euphemia Sat 15-Feb-14 17:32:40

It's cool isn't it?!

You can read the OP, skip all the guff where people speculate and project, reread your own beautifully-crafted words of wisdom, then read the OP's update to see what actually happened! grin

Catsize Sat 15-Feb-14 17:34:55

This is marvellous! Thank you OP. The bookmarking thing doesn't seem to work on a sanitaryiPad though, sadly.

anothernumberone Sat 15-Feb-14 17:36:06

What was that Queen oh look you are in purple I can find out instantly:-).

mrsjay Sat 15-Feb-14 17:36:34

I just realised my own waffilings are in grey what a rubbish colour ,

WaitMonkey Sat 15-Feb-14 18:10:26

You can't do it in the app though. If I'm wrong, please someone enlighten me.

Writerwannabe83 Sat 15-Feb-14 19:01:53

I only found out last week that I could highlight my own and OP's posts and I'm still amazed by it! grin

Kasterborous Sat 15-Feb-14 19:04:49

It's great isn't it, as is the bookmark function. I had to ask how to do it and how to do emoticons blush
