Pictorial Map to Your Rearranged MyBubble Page

How to find some “MyBubble” things on the
new 2012 Release of RedBubble
updated Aug 18, 2012

 
Here’s a quick pictorial map to some of the most commonly accessed “mybubble” features.

The mybubble page now has the simple address of redbubble.com, once you log in.
It is similar to the home page, but all of your “mybubble” features show up, when you are logged in.

So where is everything? Not to worry… it’s pretty much all here. Check out the illustrations below.

Q 1: Where are all of my activity feeds?

A 1: Click the RB logo, on any page in the site, to go HOME.


Q 2: How do I see new Comments on my work?
Q 3: How do I see Followed Artists’ new works?


Illus 2: On the new HOME page, click the Activity or Following link
in the link menu above the image tiles. In the Activity list, you will see
comments. In the Following list, you will see new works.

Update #1 – June 13, 2012
Clicking your name, top right, now goes straight to your PROFILE, rather than the Home page. Click the RB logo to go HOME.

Update #2 – June 17, 2012
Clicking your name, top right, now goes straight to your HOME, rather than the Profile page. Eeeks! Make up your mind, designers, please!

Update #3 – August 15, 2012
The line of links— “Found”, “Followed”, and “Activity” are now STICKY.
What this means to you, is that if you click on your Activity Feed, as many, if not most of us do, regularly, the next time you come back to this HOME page, you will see the Activity Feed. Sticky also means that if you click on something else, you will see that page each time you return “Home”, until you click on a different one. This is the way navigation for the member section should be. I applaud RB for the update to this area. Fantastic. “Found” is the default. So if you ever log out and delete your cookies, when you log back in, you will see the default. Of course, as soon as you click on Activity, that sticks, until you change it.

 

A 2: COMMENTS.

Click “Activity” to see the following menu options. Notice Comments.


illus: comments are a submenu option under Activity

A 3: NEW WORKS OF FOLLOWED ARTISTS.

Click “Following” to see new works and change settings.


illus: settings for follow feeds are changed via the familiar cog (or gear) icon

Q 4: Where are my Watched Topics listed? and
Q 5: My Forums are blank, where are they all?

A 4: Toggle Forums open


illus: toggle the forum feed open or closed, with the arrow to its right

A 5: Watched Forums List

Once Forums is toggled open you will see a list.

  1. It is now sorted from oldest to newest.
  2. If you have an extremely long list of watched topics, you will have a “Show All” link below the list. Click it to see more.
  3. If you have no NEW posts to a watched topic, you will not see the topic listed at all.
  4. If you have no NEW posts for all watched topics, you will see a message about no new posts.

Due to the sort order, because the newest activity is at the bottom*, you will need to click “Show All” on a very long list, to see recent activity. As noted this link only appears if the list is very long.


illus: recent activity is unfortunately at the bottom; If you have a long list, and Show All appears, click it to see the newest topics with new posts.

UPDATE: Aug. 8, 2012. Below your your watched topics list, where each has new posts noted in red, there is now a link to “All Followed Topics”, where you can see the topics which do not have new posts also, and thus get back to a link to create a post! Thanks RB!

In the same update, there is a link below that for “RB Forums”. These are the general site-wide community discussion forums.


illus. Follow watched topics, even if there are no new messages.

The “All Followed Topics” actually is a watched-topics manager! You will find a typical, paginated list of topics. Not only are they linked, but you can simply click the “stop following” button, inside the topic manager. This beats the old way of going to the topic to click the stop follow link. Faster, easier.

    THANK YOU, DEAR FRANNIE!!!

    I still do not understand why the list of groups on the left is not in alphabetical order. at the very least, this new “thing” is very confusing…
    my best, francis.

  • I think we should have Alphabetical order too.

    This is great, Frannie!
    Thanks for sharing.
    There are some really neat features in this release that I think will help with sales.

  • Hoping so too Corri. I love the very organized approach. And I like the “store” navigation tab. Hoping that’s the area we may see more work on in the future; as it’s a good start.

    The confusion is mainly a matter of finding things. I do think the sort order for some things could be more intuitive with a few switches:

    1. For Watched Forum Topics – most recent posts first
    2. For Groups – Alphabetical order

    Thanks so much for sharing this! I managed to figure most of it out but my question still remains… as in, WHY???? !! One thing I haven’t figured out, is how to Bubblemail someone from their gallery or an image. Seems the option’s disappeared. Yet it’s something I do often, as a host. If anybody knows the secret I’d appreciate a hint! thanks

  • Here you go, Nadya. I just did a screenshot illustrating how to Bubblemail and follow someone from their profile page.

    Nadya, there is an icon at the top of a persons page right below their name and right beside the green chekmark. This is for sending a bubble mail. Hope this helps.

    Frannie I have spent the whole morning navigating around the new site finding things. I think it is all good. We will get used to it. The only thing I have found so far that I don’t like is the groups are no longer in alphabetical order and the Watched Forum Topics do not show at all unless there is a new post! It just says “All Forum Topics Read” without a list of your topics.

    Thanks for posting this. I’ve seen so many being helpful it is great! I came across this that could be helpful to others as well.

  • Robin, thanks, that’s a very helpful link, in that it includes the feedback form and bug list (none listed so far.)

    Do all of you have that list of watched topics under “Forums”? How do we find that topic if there is no posts made and you need to make a new post? All you get is “All Forum Topics Read” for now.

  • Lana Wynne
    Lana Wynneover 2 years ago
    In the old version it was simply “0” posts near the watched topic but it was still on your list of watched topics so you can go back to it and make a post.
  • Okay, I have not seen those 0 posts in well over a year, maybe longer; and it might be because my list of watched topics was so long. I’ve been going the long way, to get back since then.

    Unless someone finds this or they change it, you have 3 options:

    1. edit your profile page to add, delete, substitute links that are personal and important to you at the moment. Put a little heading above the links. That way when you click on your profile page, you can get to these few links. It might look like the example, below:
    2. create a journal, mark it private, and put your special links in there
    3. bookmark or put on your browser bookmark toolbar links to your very active forums

    Favorite Active Topics
    SoJie 16 – Landscape and Light Exhibition
    Portrait Workshop
    Portrait Workshop Show and Tell

    I have just added the above to my profile, for example.

    Thanks Frannie…Unfortunately I have no “show all” on my page under watched topics….have looked for it in vain…

  • It probably only shows up if your list is too long to list. Mine is, as I have topics from way back in Solo still watched. There are probably at least 50 watched topics on my list. :-/ Need to do some cleaning. lol.

    I also don’t have a sentence that says “all forum topics read”…I am puzzled as to why things seem to be different from member to member…

  • See Lana’s comment below. It also is contextual, and only shows up when needed (when no watched topics have new posts).
