  • Hi,

    Boy, am I lost! I haven't been on the site for some time due to a broken arm. I did finally find the list of groups I belonged to. Don't know how I got there. I clicked on My Bookmarks, but there weren't any. Have I lost all of the posts I saved for future reference? I am so confused.

    Could someone please list the steps I need to to get from Google to a feed? I tried the Help section, but couldn't find applicable answers. I used to use the weekly digests to enter the feeds, and without them I don't know how to navigate the site.

    Also, do the feeds work the same as they did, as in can you post a question, etc.?

    Also, will the weekly digests be sent again? Do I have to sign up again or do something else to get the weekly feeds?

    Thanks for any help.

  • @1stackgen4 , I hope this information is helpful.

    After you have logged into the Community look for the icons at the top right side of the page. Next to the message envelope icon is your avatar (gray circle with a figure). Click on the avatar then click on your name in the pop-up window. That will take you to your personal activity page. On the right side of the Activity page under the avatar it will list the number of discussion and comments you have participated in. Click on the Discussions and all your discussions will be listed. You can then click on any of those discussion to access the feed. If you click on the Comments link, all your comments will be listed. At the bottom of each comment it will say 'in ....' with a link to the discussion where the comment was found. You can click on that link to access the entire discussion. All your prior comments and discussion should have been brought over.

    We are told the weekly digests are no available at this time.
