    Personalising the BHW home page
    Well, you can't actually personalise the home page - the threads you see on the home page are the ones that are being engaged with at that very moment. If you only want to see certain forums or threads on certain topics then you can follow those parts of BHW. Go to the forum you find most interesting or useful and click Watch Forum:

    [​IMG]

    A pop-up window will appear, giving you notification options:

    Once you've made your selections and clicked 'Watch Forum' you will get alerts for what you've chosen, thus allowing you to follow only the parts of BHW that are most useful to you. You can do a similar thing with members...

    Following other members
    Once you've started reading around the forum, you'll start to notice which users you find particularly interesting or useful. They may be an expert in the field you work in, or you might just like their sense of humour. To keep up with everything they're contributing to the forum, you can follow these members so their posts appear in your news feed.

    Go to the member's profile and click 'Follow' in the top right corner:

    Or click on their username on any post or thread and click 'Follow' in the pop window:
