Explorer Tips & Tricks

New to the Explorers Hub? No worries! :smile: We’re here to fill you in on the basics of getting around. Just follow these simple tips:

Keep scrolling

There are no next page buttons or page numbers – to read more, just keep scrolling down, and more content will load!

As new replies come in, they will appear automatically at the bottom of the topic. No need to refresh the page or re-enter the topic to see new posts.

How do I reply?

  • To reply to a specific post, use the Reply button at the bottom of that post.

  • If you want to reply to the overall theme of the topic, rather than any specific post in the topic, use the Reply button at the very bottom of the topic.

  • If you want to take the conversation in a different direction, but keep them linked together, use Reply as New Topic to the right of the post.

Who is talking to me?

When someone replies to your post, quotes you, or mentions your @username, a notification ➀ will appear at the top of the page. Click or tap that notification number to see who’s talking to you, and where. Join the conversation!

  • To mention someone’s name, start typing @ and an autocompleter will pop up.

  • To quote just a section of a post, select it, then click the Reply button that appears over the highlight.

  • To quote an entire post, use the Import Quote button on the composer toolbar.

Look at that post!

To let someone know that you enjoyed their post, click the like :+1: button at the bottom of the post. If you see a problem with a post, don’t hesitate to click the flag button and let the moderators – and your fellow community members – know about it.
