Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - BEHIND THE HEADLINES -

shows you who has re­sponded to your posts or sent you a pri­vate mes­sage.

shows you which fo­rum top­ics you’re fol­low­ing. While you’re au­to­mat­i­cally sub­scribed to top­ics you cre­ate or take part in, you can also watch a topic you haven’t par­tic­i­pated in by ‘star­ring’ it (see right).

dis­plays each topic you have posted in, with each con­tri­bu­tion listed in chrono­log­i­cal or­der.

shows ev­ery post across the fo­rum that you haven’t yet viewed. Once you have read a post, it dis­ap­pears from this list.

brings up your pri­vate inbox and sent fold­ers, and al­lows you to com­pose a new mes­sage from scratch.

pro­vides a live feed of the ac­tiv­ity on the fo­rum. Posts are marked with a blue dot un­til you’ve read them.

dis­plays the main ‘Board in­dex’ – equiv­a­lent to the fo­rum’s home­page.

en­ables you to find top­ics of in­ter­est by key­word – handy if you want to know whether an­other user has men­tioned some­thing that you’re re­search­ing.

shows which other users are on­line and en­ables you to sign in with a dif­fer­ent ac­count.

en­ables you to change cer­tain pref­er­ences, in­clud­ing font size and no­ti­fi­ca­tions.
