    • What's the difference between 'Do not send me any notifications' and 'Unfollow'?
    • SMS_2016-01-02_09-46-26_AM.jpg.8811c02d2
      'Unfollow' means that all of the following characteristics are turned off similar to as if it has never been marked with the following box.  A key aspect of 'unfollow' means that it inherits all of the following characteristics of it's parent category.  So if it's in a forum that has been marked to send notifications once per week, any changes to that topic will be sent with the weekly notification.  If it has been marked 'Do not send me any notifications' it will not transmit any notice even though it's parent specifies once per week.
    • I am trying to upload pictures to content and it only allows me to upload one picture and it only places it on top.  How do I get around this?
    • We suspect you are actually uploading the picture and placing it on the "Header Image" rather than "Attach files" area.  Just drag and drop on the other area and it should work as you expect.
