    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    I'm unable to reply to anyone's posts - only able to start new discussions - please check into the problem.

    Hi Lisa,

    Is this still happening for you? (Feel free to start a new discussion to respond to this.) If so, have you tried clearing your browser's history? And, if so, what operating system are you using, what browser and version of browser, and what, if any, devices are you using if you're not using a personal computer?

    Any and all information would help.

    Thanks Caprice - I seem to be having the issue with my IPAD - which is a new problem, as I have used my IPAD many times in the past to post. It has now started to not let me even post new discussions....grr! Had to go back to the regular computer to post this.

    Thanks for the suggestions, I'll try fiddling with the darn thing and see if I can get it working.

    Hmmm, sorry to hear this, Lisa.

    Let us know if you still cannot start a new discussion with your iPad after the other issue has been fixed (hopefully at some point this week or early next).

    And if you come up with any workarounds for your iPad, let us know that too as your info may help us help other members.

    Following up on this, Lisa...

    We had another member using an iPhone who was encountering a similar problem even after our bigger problem was fixed here. It took her clearing her device's cookies before everything got back to working properly again. Give it a try.
