With the Like system available, members can show appreciation to posts that have been made on the forum, including the posts that you make yourself. However, if you do not check back on your posts very often, how are you supposed to know if a certain post you made has been liked by another member?
There are a couple of different ways you can be notified when someone has liked a post you have made, either through a notification bubble on the forum itself, or via email. To setup this notification option, click the Profile button found in the top menu bar and then click the button for Edit Profile. Once on the Edit Profile screen, click the Notifications tab listed on the center of the page and you will be taken to a screen to adjust all the different notifications you can receive on the forum. Once here, look for the option when someone likes your content, and to the left of this option you'll find two check boxes. One check box will be for Forum, and the other will be for Email.
When the Forum check box is selected, when someone likes a post that you have made on the forum, you will be notified with a notification bubble above the Profile button in the top menu bar of the forum. Details of the post that was liked will be found in the Notifications tab of your profile page. When the Email check box is selected, you will receive an email letting you know that a post you have made has been liked on the forum. You can check both boxes to receive both notification types, or leave them both unchecked if you do not wish to receive any notifications at all.
