    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    How to more easily read discussions
    Caprice_WebMD_Staff posted:
    Exchanges provide a more dynamic way to keep up with ongoing discussions.

    But If you're finding how discussions and responses are displayed now is a bit confusing, are wondering how to keep track, and would like a more traditional view of an exchange, you can do that!

    When you come to an exchange, click on the Discussions link on the upper left sidebar and voila!

    (You can do the same if you want to just look at tips or resources.)

    To go back to the view you get when you first come in to an exchange, just click on the Exchange Home link on the upper left sidebar.

    Can we have discussions showing most recent first?
    Caprice_WebMD_Staff replied to miarka's response:
    Hi Miarka,

    If you use the Discussions index (click on See All Discussions on the left) they display as they used to on the old boards, listed by who began the discussion and, as was on the boards, each time someone responds it is bumped up again.

    Hope this helps.

    The only two I have visible DON'T (and have not since this change) include this home base of WebMD Breast Cancer Exchange. Is there a problem with it? Or with me???

    Caprice_WebMD_Staff replied to rachael67's response:
    They've changed the name a couple of times, Rachael. Now it's there on the left as 'What's Happening Now'.

    But if you want the discussions displayed as they used to on the old message board, you click on the See All Discussions link on the left OR - since last night's update - the Discussions link when you first come to the What's Happening Now page of the exchange.

    Clear as mud?

    So glad I found this discussion. Thanks so the information. Just wanted to say also, even though I have a wonderful caring husband, close friends and far away loving family members to help me get though this scary time, I still feel scared and alone sometimes and I am just beginning this journey, but knowing that I can come here makes me feel stronger and not a lone. Thank you all for being here. Judy
