Tip: Forum Activity Tab

April 6th, 2017

You may have noticed a recent addition to the tabs in your forums – the activity tab!

When you click that tab, you will find the activity for your forums including replies to you, replies to your threads, new topics in your groups, replies to threads you are watching and threads that have a question you might be able to answer because you made the pattern or used the yarn.

If you would like to adjust the activity you see in the activity tab, you can do so by clicking the little drop down beside one of the posts. In that drop down you will see these options and you can choose whichever option you prefer.

If you accidentally hide something that you would still like to see in your activity tab, you can click “undo hidden forums & users”. On the page that follows, click the little “x” next to anything you would like to unhide (no offense to any groups listed there, I just hid a few as an example).

The forum activity tab is a great way to quickly catch up with what is going on in the forums that you follow. This also looks great on tablets and mobile devices. If you aren’t currently participating in the forums, I encourage you to find some groups that might interest you. This blog post has some great tips on how to locate your new favorite group.
