How can we go directly to listings of the discussions from our old groups?

What's the fastest way to go to wherever the discussions are, for what used to be specific groups .. such as "TV Talk" and "Singles Perspective Revisited"?

Take a look at the message listing and check out the topics...  I found the contents of Rock n Roll!

Editing My Personal Information

Nyadrn,

 

You can customize your AARP Community experience by clicking on the My Settings and My Preferences links located under Quick Links (right rail of community.aarp.org page).  You will see lots of options available for you to select.  I'm happy to answer any additional questions you might have after your review.

Navigating to Discussions

Astraea,

 

The best way to navigate to discussion is via the "DISCUSSIONS" module on the community home page (http://community.aarp.org).  It's arranged by Category, Topic, and then Posts.  

 

Once you've navigated to the desired discussion you can click on the Options link, just under the word Community and to the right of the New Message red button. Clicking this opens additional options just for that topic or post.  Subscribe and Bookmark are two options you might want to explore.

 

The My Settings are hold all your subscriptions and bookmarks.  Click the Subscriptions & Notifications tab.  

 

Sandy

Re: Welcome to the Online Community Forums!

I've bookmarked a couple of community forums, how can I easily find them?
