OK now. I've checked one of my posts I made and it said I had 14 replies, but I don't know how to read them. Help!
Just click on the post title and it should come up. If you choose the "notify me when a reply is posted" choice below the box where you type in your question it will send you an email link, but you have to check that yourself when you write the original post. If you respond to someone else's post it checks it automatically for you.
