    1 - How to create a personalised forum feed


    This is a guide on how to create a feed that shows you all unread posts from forums or topics you follow. It is a good way to keep up to date with everything that goes on in the OCC.


    Step 1

    On the top right of the forums, below your profile link, click the link that says Unread Content.




    Step 2

    You will see a messy page that has a lot of topics and comments listed. This is the default feed which shows everything on the forums that you haven't read. To clean it up, adjust the settings like this:




    So it doesn't show every single comment made, only individual topics.




    So it only shows content you follow. (For some reason, checking members breaks the feed. So don't do that.)




    So it will only show new topics or replies you haven't opened. The second setting means that you can just click the topic and it takes you to the newest reply (instead of the start of the topic).


    Step 3

    Save the stream with a schwifty name.




    Then click the green checkmark next to the stream name to make it your default.



    Step 4


    Each forum has a follow button. Click it. You can choose "Do not send me any notification" because you'll be using a news feed instead. Or you can leave it on for the most important stuff, like announcement and division forums. Remember to click the Follow button to finalise.



    You can also follow individual topics.


    Step 5


    To see your nice new follow feed, click the name of your feed where it used to say "Unread Content". I prefer the Condensed setting (otherwise you get an excerpt of the content). You can click the Share icon to get the url for your feed, or just bookmark it and start your browsing there.




    Step 6




    Additional note: You can manage your followed content from your control panel. Click the down-arrow next to your name in the top right panel and click 'Manage Followed Content'. From there you have an easy overview of the topics and forums you follow, and you can set them up individually for different types of alerts and notifications. These functions are all separate from your custom feed, and you can use either or both to stay up to date.
