1. The new system: If I click on 'see more Qs', I don't get the most recent posts in my language pairs for some odd reason, e.g. today 17 April, I only see Qs from 13 April.

2. Is there any fast way to access open Qs? To now I have had to log in to my email account, dredge up a message about an open Q, click and work from there. Wouldn't it be logical to include this in 'My ProZ'?

3. The presentation of my portfolio data is distorted, all the TT is squeezed into a narrow column on the right, it's been like this for ages, and I have tried redoing it a few times but to no avail.

ta in advance:-)

Your computer settings? Apr 16, 2004

Hi Ailish,

Can't tell anything about portfolio, but as concerns KudoZ questions, have you checked your browser settings? It looks like you get the cashed page (the one stored in your computer for faster loading) - try the Refresh button and see if todays questions appear.

The fastest way to go to KudoZ questions is via Answer Questions (KudoZ menu on the top). If you select option My Pairs (the top again) it will remember and you will get your pairs. Or is it about the questions you asked? Then you can access them from your profile (KudoZ tab).

HTH

Magda

Hi Ailish Apr 16, 2004

Please check the settings on the top of the KudoZ list page:
language pairs (choose MY LANGUAGES from the dop-down list)
fields (choose ALL)
level (choose ALL)
status (choose OPEN)
Click the "View questions and save settings" button.

HTH,
Natalia

P.S. What about your portfolio; it looks perfectly well on my screen. Magda seems to be right, the problems may be caused by your browser. Consider reinstalling it.

The layout of your porfolio appears distorded probably because of the link inserted in the second text (English section).
It is seen as a long word, the page tries to accommodate it enlarging the column, and the result is the narrowing of the other column.

Try to upload your porfolio in HTML format (instead of text), and provide the link as a clickable link with a very short text, for example "Click here to read it on-line", with here containing the long URL inside.

I have resolved those 3 little issues, thanks for your help. Don't know how the portfolio worked, but it had half rectified itself before I even touched it, and removing the link helped even further.

Thanks again:-)
