A few tips to start

  • If you?d like to find which board went to which Exchange, then check out Find Your Exchange .
  • You can increase font size by pressing CTRL (or Apple Symbol) and the ?+?sign.
  • 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,? found beneath each Discussion.

Can we still do signatures? If so how would we make one?
Dorothea_WebMD_Staff replied to kmsorrels's response:
No, I'm sorry to say that the old signatures are gone, at least for now. As a workaround, you could use a notepad file to save what you'd like for signature text and paste it into each post. Not ideal by any means, but might be useful.

Just curious, why were the signatures - and the emoticons - left out??

wow, this change is horrible!!!! Why the changes???? I loved these boards....I don't know if I'll come back. No signatures and no emoticons?? What gives??
Happyislindsay replied to bcfrost816's response:
I agree with you. I hardly come on here anymore. Oh well. I feel like it's harder to see all the discussions...(before it was more of a snap shot, but now it's like only 5 discussions on the first page, and you keep going to the next page...)
Louise_WebMD_Staff replied to scperdomo's response:
We are all working on getting the signatures back. I miss them as much as you do. I think in getting a better, more stable platform-some tricky things were left for later.

You can still do emoticons.

You need to type them and include the nose but colon : or ; semicolon, then dash -, then paren ) ( D or / makes a range of emoticons.

Have you tried using the See All Discussions view? You can click on the link on the upper left sidebar or bookmark this link:

Many members find that an easier work around at this point. Or if you click into a post and then click the latest tabs to navigate on the right sidebar-that can be helpful too.

I know our engineers are working feverishly on improving some of the things that our members most want changed or fixed. Please let me know if I can help you with ideas in the meantime or if you have a particular issue you would like to see addressed.

Know that the discussion issue, emoticons, and signatures are priorities on the tech team's lists already!
