OK. I admit it. I took a PBS break and now that the site looks different I'm having a bit of trouble navigating.

I found the "Watch Topic" button at the top of the threads and I even clicked on one of them. But I can't figure out where I'm supposed to watch it from. Is there a place that saved my watched topics so that I can easily make my way back to it? (that's what I'm hoping for)

When you click on "Community" and Choose "Discussion Forums" there is a button which says "My Watched Topics" below the yellow box of hot topics and above the blue box of Chit Chat.  When you click on that button it opens a list of the topics you have clicked "Watch Topic" on.  It took me a while to figure out how this worked too :  )

Oh my! That was sooo very simple. I must have been temporarily blind not to see it.
Thank you so much for helping me out!

Sometimes things are so simple they jump up and bite you on your nose...............

I'm so glad you asked, Melissa.  I tried watching some topics when I first joined, but I never figured out how to actually watch the topic other than doing a search for it.  And thanks Lita for the answer!

I bookmark my Watched Topic page and that is the link I use to come to the site. Then when I come onto PBS the first thing that shows is the topics I'm most interested in, and I can see if anything new has been posted since I was here last.

Also, IF the emails are working right, whenever someone posts in a Watched Topic, you should receive an email. But, they haven't been working right lately. Sometimes you get one and sometimes you don't.
