[resolved] Can’t find my Topics after I post them

    I post a topic, like this one and when it is replied to I don’t get a notification and it’s not in the junk mail folder.

    Also I can’t find it when I come back and check my “Topics Started”

    Even this post, when I go to forums, topics started there is nothing there. It says I have made 4 posts in the sidebar, but there is nothing showing.

    “For the time being, your display name needs to be different than your login to update your activity stream.” per JJJ at bottom of this page https://buddypress.org/community/groups/miscellaneous/forum/topic/forum-conduct/

    Thank you @mercime for replying to this. I have now changed my display name so it is completely different from my login name. I went onto WordPress.org and changed it there as well. I’m still not seeing the Topics Started under forum>topics started.

    I tried starting a new topic too, but still nothing.

    I am seeing my posts under “Your Activity” now, so that’s good enough for me. Thanks again.

    You’re welcome :-)
    Going through this extra step prevents spammers’ stuff, if any, from appearing in our activity streams since almost of all of them don’t change display names :-)

    I on the otherhand have the same problem as @mercime; however, I still can’t see my topics. On my ‘Your Activity’ screen…I can see old posts when you username / display name were the same, but none since I changed by Display name. Any advice?
