I see them all, including replies, on the Status Updates page.

What's a status update page?

Just create an activity stream that is set to Status Updates only, in the "Content Types" box.  Save it as a separate activity stream.

This suggestion may be more for Greg and I'm  not sure if it can even be done, but...

Any new members signing on to the forum after new format won't really know what status updates are.  Since most of us old timers are even having a hard time figuring it out, maybe it could be one of the main tabs like Forum and Chat.

Yeah?

No, they're not.  My question (which got figured out and deleted) was to bcsapper about how he managed to get the stream going.

I had the status updates, but suddenly it's gone.  I clicked on Activity Tab and I have no Status Updates Option.  This along with the glitch not allowing me to have a sig line makes me wonder just how badly fubar this new format is.

Ok.  But they still aren't appearing on the main page.

I've removed the block because i haven't had the time to fix this issue.

The status block will return once it's working properly.

The signatures not being visible isn't a glitch, it's a conscious choice on my part. I'm still deciding whether there is any real value - because i'm thinking there isn't any.

Then just add a new custom stream like BCsapper mentioned above.

Agreed....if they come back, I for one would just use them to express my undying "support" for The Right Honourable Justin P. J. Trudeau.

I've gone an added another stream called, "Status Updates' to the Activity menu.  That should make it easier for everyone (now you won't need to make a custom stream).

The issue with status updates has been resolved.

Is there a way to see all the status updates? The main page only shows the most recent 5, Ithink

<Edit> nevermind, found it under "Activity Streams".

Try reloading the home page. I have seen that issue as well. If that doesn't work, go to your own profile page and start one there, that has always worked for me.

At the very top of the forum home page, you should see "create". Click on it an you will be given 2 choices: status or topic. Click "status" and the status dialogue box should open. Of course, you have to be logged in to see the "create" option.

I see create but only have one option of topic. ..

That's odd scribblet. In my case, I can also access the status update dialogue box on the right side of the home page where it says "what's on your mind".

Looks like the home page is not uniform for all members.
