Forum Tip - Limit what is shown in Recent Content

Blog Post created by Greg Jankowski Employee on Jul 17, 2009

One of the downsides in having a very active community, is that there are too many new threads and comment showing up in the Recent Content or Popular content areas. There is a way to limit what you see if you don't follow one of the Categories or Sub-Categories.

 

 

Define the Categories that are important

 

The 1st part of this is customizing Your View to show only the Categories/Sub-Categories or Groups that you want to follow.

 

Just navigate to the Categories/Sub-Categories and click Follow this community (see yellow highlighted area under the Actions menu).

The 2nd part of this is customizing Your View to only show the things you are following.

 

Here are the steps:

  1. Login

  2. Click Your View and Personalize

  3. Select the Your Followed Places in to limit the Recent Content to only categories or groups you are following. You can also set this to just one Category or Sub-Category by selecting an items from the Communities pull-down.recent_content.jpg
