When you add a post on HealthUnlocked, you may have noticed that you have the option of which category your post best fits in. From now on, when you add a post you will see that several categories have now been added. The categories are:
Medication & Therapy
(or none of the above, which hopefully won't be used so much now)
In addition to this, there are 2 categories that we (NRAS) can post in to give you useful information about the charity and about anything going on in local areas that might be of interest. These categories are called:
Updates from NRAS
In your area
We hope that these categories will be helpful going forward, in making distinctions between different types of post. In particular, there has sometimes been some contention over people using the NRAS HU forum to post about things not connected with RA. These would now sit in the 'off topic' area, which we hope will help. Whilst this is an RA forum, we appreciate that many people have formed strong friendships on here so might want to post non-RA related topics from time to time, but hopefully by putting this into a different category this will separate these posts out if people don't want to view them.
If you click on the 'posts' section, you will see the option to 'browse by category' on the right hand side. At first, not all the categories will be displayed, as it is not possible to browse them until they have content, but as people start using the correct categories the option to browse will hopefully make it easier for people to look at topics of interest (or avoid other topics).
I really hope you will find this a useful function!
