    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

    Hi Everyone!

    Welcome to your new home in the WebMD Health Exchange!

    I hope you found your way in easily. I know change can be both exciting and hard at the same time, so I?m here to help you navigate around and I?ll do my best to answer any questions you have.

    Jump in and start playing around with the functionality. Try posting a discussion and adding a poll. Post a tip and share a resource. Vote on Tips and Resources as well, and see how that works.

    If you have questions, and I am not around you can visit the new Welcome Exchange where there will be moderators standing by throughout the next week to help.

    We?ve also put up some information on our Community Blog that you can check out as you wait for one-on-one feedback.

    I can?t wait to see all our familiar faces back in the community and sharing the wonderful support we all know and love here at WebMD.

    Very well done indeed. I like the fact that people can see drug reviews of related drugs on the right hand side of the page.

    Tips to navigate the exchanges:

    If you want to find which board went to which Exchange, then check out Find Your Exchange .

    You can increase font size by pressing CTRL and the plus sign. Do this as many times as you need to to get the font size that is legible to you.

    Clicking the Discussion Index link on the left sidebar will help you follow Discussions in a more linear fashion.

    Bookmark this Exchange at the upper right part of the page beneath the house icon, is a good way to find your favorite Exchanges. Once you do that, it will appear under My Exchanges on the left navigation bar.

    Finally, to watch or follow a discussion, click on Watch this Discussion which is found beneath each Discussion.

    Hi jc3737,

    I see you've posted a link to a diet debate exchange.

    May I help you navigate to that exchange?
