My comment about Sandbox threads being excluded was only about the "Recent Threads" on the home page. Sandbox threads do appear on the "Most Recent Threads" page.

For any of you who totally got lost, I'm going to (hopefully) try to help clarify:

1) I click on my little blue home (house) icon in the upper left of every page (but you must be logged in).
2)This takes me to a page where I scroll down and on the right side of the page you will find the title "Recent Threads" in a green header.
3) Then scroll down to the bottom of any recent threads in that list and you will come to a link named "Continue viewing new threads".
4) I click on this link and it takes me to a page labeled in black at the top "Most Recent Threads", and you will also see in a green header on that same page "Recent Threads".
5) On this page, you will see the 'Sandbox Forums' listed if recent "New" Threads have been started, if it is not included under step 2) above.

AND . . . always hear both sides of the story before making a judgment.

Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Prettybad!!! Bad going in the wrong direction from the get go.
So my above Post #1578236 was edited to fix your direction any reviewers trying to learn.

BTW, @Calif_Sue , is there a tutorial for how to use NGA? I looked under Tools & Apps but didn't see anything, nor under Learning Library. Hey, I just want to heap all kinds of work on everyone. Green Grin!

I think I could write one to help newbies, but really don't think I have the time. Nor do I think my computer (old Vista) has the capability running Firefox browser to do screen capture which I would most definitely want to use.

Also, @Calif_Sue , if I happen to make any posts, then disappear for days, and that post seriously needs to be fixed like the above one , please feel free to fix it if you as plants_admin have that capability. I certainly don't want to lead viewers astray. Thanks.

P.S. Also, if a tutorial for navigating NGA is not already available and I missed it, perhaps it could be titled "Navigating NGA" Smiling

I seldom visit the "Welcome forum", but for some reason I visited this morning. I see that @Trish has a sticky help link entitled "Help with Site Navigation". Lotsa work to create a Tutorial to Navigate NGA listed under Learning Library ? Or anyway, if you have NGA meetings, perhaps you can talk about it?

At the bottom of every page "Help using the site".
And any site question can be posted in the Site Talk Forum.

No NGA meetings, we are all volunteers living in different areas around the world, with busy lives. nodding See 'About' and "Our Staff'.
