    I sometimes answer one of the questions in the Unanswered groups. I note that if I answer the question leaves that group. Can there be some way to leave a question there until the poster marks it answered or a certain numbers of days has elapsed?

    I gave an answer for what I suspect is an internal vacuum leak on a Dodge. But I don't feel that I gave a solid answer and someone with Dodge experience may know more. But the question left the group now so Dodge or someone with knowledge may not see that question about a whine from the engine.

    One the other hand there's been a question about the size of crank bearings on a toyota in the group for weeks. There should be a way for unanswered questions to "time out."

    I'll check into it. One thing I can do is change that topic from a Question to a Discussion. That way it all "comments" being added and not "answers."

    Here's the one you answered. The other fast way to keep track of it is to bookmark it when you respond by activating the yellow star at the opening post.

    Is there a way to make the "Prices Paid and Buying Experiences" subforum display its subjects in alphabetical order, as we could on the old forum software? I realize there are a lot of makes and models there, but search does not always return what I'm looking for. E.g., it's not clear whether one should search for "Ford F-150 Prices Paid" or "Ford F-series Prices Paid," but if they're in alphabetical order by make, it's easy to find. "2014 Ram prices paid" returns nothing relevant other than a lease discussion.

    Very difficult to navigate when the topics are shown in order of most recent activity.

    That'd be nice but we haven't figured out how to do something like that. You can go to the Car Forums link up top and Browse Forums by Make/Model but the default sort is by recent activity.

    For example - Ford F-150, Ram 1500.

    All of a sudden the Forums site has stopped "remembering" me so I have to log in every time. Anyone else having this problem?

    Haven't heard anything - try clearing your browser cache or reboot your computer.

    I started having the problem recently on my iPad.

    But also on another site they never used to log me out. PC is fine, so I think it is an iPad issue for me,

    I discovered the problem. There's a little bar at the bottom of the ipad marked Private. If you hit it inadvertently it locks password-pages. Un click it and passwords are "remembered" again.

    It just has to be unclicked on one I think. I've had my ipad for 5 years and never seen this before!

    It's not on the browser itself, but Safari can be set to private in iPad 1's settings. It turns the tabs an ugly black so you'd notice it if it was set.

    after I turned off Private, I rebooted the ipad, and it seems to have cured the problem. Big pain having to remember, and reenter, PWs all the time!

    Testing "deep" nesting.
    [Hm, you'd think "Appears to work" would have stayed in the quote box. Still an improvement]

    I'm having error messages on my Win XP laptop and am not able to log into the forums for long periods and then I may be able to get in with one of the browsers.

    In Firefox I get Http status 500 - an exception occurred processing JSP page/global/redesign_head_part2.jsp at line 3 and a page full of Apache error text. Other times I use the Forums pulldown on Edmunds.com and get a big Whoops!, your sso timed out during the request.


    In IE8 I get the howdy stranger page but get a normal page with a message saying we're having difficulty please come back later. And then later I am able to sign in to my bookmarked pages.

    If I use my Win 7 laptop, everything is fine.

    @Ray80 had issues Saturday but they were short-lived and we had no other reports. Then it happened to me Sunday, and we were finally able to reproduce it. A ticket has been submitted.

    XP eh? Living dangerously. :)

    Yes I did see login issues that (unbeknownest to Steve and others) repeated after the first occurrance somewhat later in the day.

    And yes indeed on the XP thing, Somehow or other I managed really break my 2 XP machines shortly before support ended. They were pretty old anyway so both have been replaced.

    I have a heavy old spare laptop around here I keep meaning to put Windows 10 beta on but haven't gotten around to it. Maybe that'll break it and I can dump it. B)

    Hello Edmunds Forums Members!

    Early next week, you will see a few changes in the Forums. There will be an ad placement after every 5th comment posted within discussions. And to reduce the ad clutter at the top of the page, those static ads will be going away. Plus, the side rail navigation will be rearranged a bit that should be helpful with navigating the forums.

    If you have any questions, please post them here or you can send personal message by clicking on my screen name.

    Thanks for your continued participation and support!

    Anyone else use the Chrome browser on iOS? I'm getting what appears to be a very old-school mobile site on my iPhone 6s, but everything looks normal on my iPad mini 2. Here are screenshots from the iPhone:

    I'm seeing this on my iPhone as well, using the Safari browser.

    I believe the home office is looking into it.
