When I go to the list of the forums I want to follow, and deselect the ones I DON'T want to follow, there seems to be no way to save my preferences, and in fact they are not saved, and the forums I DON'T want to follow continue to show up in my list of forums I am following. What am I missing here? Where do I save my preferences for those forums?

Here's a small screen shot from the list where I've been selecting/deselecting. As you can see, I've turned off various forums I don't wa

Here's a small screen shot from the list where I've been selecting/deselecting. As you can see, I've turned off various forums I don't want to see - but they keep on appearing in my list anyway. Grrrrr......

I think this URL is what you're looking for:

https://www.proz.com/dashboard/forum/?sp_forum_mode=homepage_forums

The page you copied, www.proz.com/forum/categories/technical_forums-tech.html, is only for email notifications (and perhaps RSS, which I've never really figured out how to use) and does not affect what you see on your home page, as far as I understand.

@Thomas Mar 28

Thanks Thomas - I knew about that page. Ages ago I used it to deselect the topics/forums I don't want to see on my home page - and ironically, that page DOES have a "save preferences" option - but they still keep coming up! That's exactly the problem!

I just removed SDL Trados support from my 'List on homepage' and refreshed my home page. That made a post from an SDL Trados forum disappear, so it seems to work for me. At least on the old home page, which I'm using, as the new one is a complete dog's breakfast.

Did you refresh your home page? If you just navigate back to it without refreshing, you may see a cached version that doesn't reflect your update.

OK Mar 28

OK Thomas I always do those things anyway, but I'll keep trying.

Hopefully somebody will come up with other suggestions.

Thought you would Mar 28

I thought you would. When you are troubleshooting something, you just need to rule out the most obvious causes first.

You could try to clear all proz.com cookies. Just in case.

If it still doesn't work and no knight in shining armour comes to your rescue, the next obvious step is to create a support ticket – as you would know already.
