Notifications are just what you think they might be - notifications alerting you that another user has taken some kind of action pertaining to you on the site. Some examples of notifications include when someone:
- Comments on your post.
- Likes your post.
- Likes your review.
- Gives you a hug.
- Mentions you.
- Answered your question.
When you sign in, in the top right corner of your screen you will be alerted to how many new notifications you have since your last login. Clicking this navigation button will give you a quick view of your notifications. Selecting 'view all' from the bottom of the list takes you to all your notifications.
If you do not have any new notifications, you can visit your notifications via the drop down by clicking on the navigation button, then 'my notifications', then 'view all'.
When in your notifications, they will be listed chronologically, with the most recent being on top.
- Any unread notifications will be in grey. Clicking on the notification will take you to that activity.
- Hovering over the link for 'others' will show you all the users who have interacted with that activity.
- Clicking on a username will take you to their profile.
- Selecting view all will take you to a list of everyone who has contributed to that activity.
If you would like to go to the users' profile who most recently commented or liked your content, just click on 'others' and you will see a list of members liked your post.
Clicking on the notification from the notifications page or from 'view post' within one of your notification emails will bring you directly to the post. It will be highlighted in orange. You can click 'view previous comments' to expand the list to view all of the comments.
