Follow users, categories and posts

This feature enables all users to have more control over the content they are interested in and makes sure they get notified when such new content is published on the blog.


Follow Categories and Users

You can now follow any category to get notified when there is a new post published in that category. To follow a category, click on the Follow button next to the category name at the top of the category page (to get to the category page click on the category name in the sidebar on the left).


You will receive an email notification as well as in-app notification if you are currently logged in.

Follow Posts

You can also follow individual posts to get notified of new comments and replies to that post.

Follow individual posts to get notified of new comments and replies

By default, you automatically follow every post you create so you get notified when someone comments on your post. However, this default behavior can be changed in your profile settings.
