I do not have a "My Papers" tab in my profile drop-down menu. Is it just me?

I'm working on "Microsoft Edge", the IE-like browser for cheap tablets (I'm on an Acer)

- Marilyn

(Boone, my tech limitations means I'll test that profile fix in a few hours when I can get to a better machine.)

Hi Marilyn - I'm seeing the My Papers item on all accounts I've tested with, nested between My Messages and My Friends. See the attached screenshot. Are we looking in the same place?

Yes, we're looking at the same spot, and now I'm viewing on Chrome on a full PC. Screenshot attached.

And it does seem to be just my problem - screenshot from a student (attached) shows that he has it.

Very weird. I just used our user-switching plugin to act as your account, and I saw the menu item there.

Are you having problems seeing any other parts of Social Paper? When you go to your Commons Profile, do you see Paper as a menu item on the left?

Ray, any ideas?

Ray, any ideas?

It looks like Marilyn is viewing a Commons subdomain.

Since Social Paper isn't network-activated, the "My Papers" menu item does not show up if you are not on the main Commons site.

I've added a commit to fix this here:

Thanks for reporting the bug, Marilyn!

No problem.

And just to clarify - I always see it on the left. It's on the right-hand profile tab that's a problem
