    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

    Thank you Elizabeth My only problem is when I was trying to sign in and would hit the logon on button, it just sat there spinning the Loading Icon and never would log me on.

    Welcome back! I find I have that problem if I try to log in from the "reply" button of a post. I have to click on the "sign in" button at the top-right.

    Yes, as Sarah describes -

    Log in at the top right before responding. We have noticed when members are logging in as they are trying to post, some encounter a problem.

    Thanks for the feedback!

    Elizabeth_WebMD_Staff replied to Momma2Ethan's response:
    Thanks for checking back in -

    I apologize you never got a response from your emails, by any chance do you remember what email address you sent the info to?

    For any problems or concerns, please use

    This is checked directly by the community team versus customer service. If you want to test to make sure it works, we'll keep an eye out and respond to you letting you know that it's working.

    Also, please be sure to make sure you spam filter is not blocking email from WebMD. Sometimes this will happen when the filter detects we're a company sending a member something.

    One more request, to make sure we can figure out what's going one. Can you let me know or write in (whichever is easier) which browser and version you are using and where you were trying to log in from.

    Ex: Trying to log in when posting? Or the top of the community you were on? Trying to log in from the home page of WebMD? Another page within WebMD? Was it a bookmarked page? And, when you were finally able to log in, where was that from?

    Sorry to bombard you with so many questions. We want to make sure all glitches and problems are taken care off and it will help us help others that this may be happening to.
