What does "following" a member do?

    Just curious.

    I haven't figured out what the "follow" thing is supposed to do. I can see that there is a link to my followers on the profile drop down menu, and I can also see the list of people following me on my profile page, but apart from that? On other sites similar functions tend to give me one click access to recent (or all) postings from those I follow, or notifications when one of them posts something or similar features. If there are such things here, I haven't found them.

    Have I missed something?

    Thanks for asking! I didn't even know what it did until you asked, and I looked it up. As it turns out, following someone makes their stuff populate your "news feed". Thing is, I had the news feed disabled, which makes following people do nothing. In response to your question, I've enabled the news feed. Lot's of good stuff in this forums software :thumbsup:.


    newsfeed.
