I can't figure out how to subscribe tomindividual users, "watch" in thenold parlance. I don"t want an RSS feed. I just want tomsee when the people i'm interested min posted last.   Apologies for the errors in this post. Even while initially composing a post, can't go back and edit. Pressing and holding doesn't bring up the magnifying glass. There isn't anyway for me tomsee where the insertion point is at all.

    Hi Meg. By way of experiment, I just went into your (public) profile and clicked the "Receive email notifications" thingy on your page.

     

    Maybe we could meet up again here tomorrow and cross reference what you posted with the notifications for you that I received? (I was subscribed to toonz and Roy B before the most recent revolution, and can do a bit of comparing and contrasting of what I'm seeing with you and what I was seeing with them.)

    Hi Meg,

     

    In "Your View" there is a "Watch a user" widget under "Content".

     

    See a tutorial here.

     

    Best wishes

    Meg,

     

    Yes, iOS devices seem to not be fully supported as yet. See Matt K's post here:

    I expect the more people point out these things the better...

     

    Best wishes

    Is it just one person or multiple people? If you want to watch more than one person you need to add a new widget. Is that what you mean?

     

    To change the user the widget is looking at: Go to "your View" and click the 'personalize' link by where it says "Your View". This gives edit menus at the top of each widget in "Your View" (look a the right of the title of the widget). Select "edit this widget" and change the user it is watching here.

     

    When you are done make sure you select "Publish Layout", otherwise your changes won't show.

     

    Let me know if this is not clear.

     

    Best wishes

    Hi Meg,

     

    I know what you mean… I'm sure we'll get used to it.

    I'm not sure there is beyond the date showing for the last reply. Do you mean like having them bold?

    Additionally, I don't really want email notifications. I just want to look at the page and see if there is new activity in the topics or users i'm watching

    Phew ... have desubscribed then (you're busy here, and I got a serious dose of inbox shock when I woke up this morning).

     

    Thanks also to John for the instructions on watching users. Have tried to do that, but my widgets are misbehaving. I can drag them, but they don't seem to drop anywhere.

    Hi b noir,

     

    Yes, the drag and drop is a little fiddly. You can see when it's going to work as a green bar appears where it is going to go.

     

    Best wishes
