Sometime after I'd registered and began posting on this site, I noticed something odd.

Whenever I view the forum's "Latest activity" page, my own "activity" (thread posts, "likes", etc) only shows up if I'm logged in. As soon as I log out, refreshing that page makes my "activity" entries disappear. There's no indication on that page that I ever posted to the forum unless I'm logged in. That's not a big deal by itself, but...

I tried visiting that page (without logging in) from an alternate device on an alternate ISP and it shows none of my activity either, so I'm guessing that nobody viewing that page ever sees any of my posts/likes/etc. :eek: Maybe that's a blessing for some readers! :D

Any idea what's going on?

BTW, my posts do show up on the "New Posts" page and always have.

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
It’s probably a feature just for members. If you’re not logged in, the forum assumes you are a visitor because you haven’t logged in to identify yourself as a member.

Thanks for the reply, but I'm not sure I follow you.

When I visit the site without logging in, why would only the posts/likes/etc made by "Orca" (me) be missing from the "Latest Activity" page when even the posts by members who are not logged in appear just fine?

If you were to log out and reload the "Latest activity" page, would your activity disappear?

EDIT: More to-the-point, do you see any of my activity on that page?

Thanks so much for confirming that!

That makes it even odder, though, that when I visit the site from a different device (on which I've never logged into the TRS forum) and with a different ISP, that I don't see any "Orca" entries on that "Latest Activity" page.

I guess that unless someone happens to have a similar issue, I'll have to chalk this one up to one of life's great mysteries. 🤪

Thanks again for the help -- much appreciated!
