Welcome to our Did You Know? (#dyk) segment where we teach you about Ribblr features and tools you might not know yet!
Did You Know? Top tips and tricks for the community!
If you are new to Ribblr make sure you check out our Community Guidelines and of course our Community WIKI which gives you all the information about how to navigate, bookmark posts, control your notifications, earn badges, gain community levels and so much more:
But today we want to take the time to focus on pro tips:
Check out your summary! Go to your profile, then click summary. You’ll find cool stats about your activity in the community.
Featured topic - you can feature a topic in your profile so everyone who visits it can find it. A great example would be a post introducing yourself or your shop.
Tracking - you probably already the know that you can use the bell icon in every topic to control the level of your notifications. But did you know you can also find tracking in your profile to both set tracking defaults AND track specific spaces and tags? You can also track other Ribblrs (not in a creepy way!) by becoming friends and receiving a notification when they post.
Drafts - you can find all your drafts by clicking on your profile picture then drafts. This is a great way to revisit some of those topics you haven’t shared yet.
Pause notifications - sometimes you need to wind down and take a step back. We respect that! You can use the ‘pause notification’ feature to temporarily not receive any notifications. And you can also set a notification schedule.
Use # to for spaces or tags! You can use writing #testing to link directly to our testing zone or #suggestion to hyper link to our suggestion tag.
Videos - we don’t natively support adding videos to the community, but you can embed Youtube videos and other websites directly into your post. Just copy and paste it! Others will be able to watch the videos directly within your post.
Reply via email - you can reply to message and posts directly via email, just hit the reply button in your email and type your reply. That’s it! We’ll automatically paste it in the right place.
Share posts! Finally, you can share posts. Just hit the share icon below the topic or next to each post. You can use it to start a new topic linked to a post or just share directly via email, Facebook, Twitter etc.
This still makes no sense to me. What email? Where? How is this done?
I am not trying to be dense, but it’s been a year and I still have no idea where this email is that has a ribblr reply in it for topics. I only know of the internal messaging that has an envelope in it.
@anon5108995 if you’ve set to receive email updates, for example for new messages, then you can reply directly from your email. Sometimes it’s a little quicker this way if you’re out and about and just want to do a quick reply
I think you missed what they said- there are two types of notifications. Community notifications which you can edit by clicking on your profile then preferences then ‘emails’ and ‘notifications’.
The link was to the rest of the platform as @Ribblr mentioned.
@OBabyNMore we just checked your account and it seems your email client is blocking emails from Ribblr. This means your email has put a filter on our domain or you marked an email as spam/junk. In both cases, according to our policies, we stop emailing you altogether.
