Followedpages

An example Special:Followed pages list

Followed pages are a way to keep up to date on pages you care about on FANDOM. They are placed on the Watchlist.

Step-by-step

Toolbar follow
  • You can choose to "Follow" a page by simply clicking on "Follow" on the toolbar at the bottom of your page. When you have followed the page successfully, the text will change to "Following". In some cases this toolbar may be hidden: pressing the upwards arrow icon (^) in the bottom right will show it.
  • You can receive email notifications by changing your user preferences.
    Email preferences
  • In some situations, you may automatically begin following pages, such as after you leave a post on someone's Message Wall. You can manage your preferences for automatically following pages in your user preferences.
  • You can view your followed pages on a specific community by going to Special:Following on that community. You can also view them at Special:Watchlist, which has some more advanced features for managing these pages.
  • To unfollow a page, simply click the "Following" link in the toolbar at the bottom of the page. This is the same location as the link you clicked to follow the page originally.
  • You may be displaying a "Pages I'm Following" box on your user page to show others what pages you are interested in on the community. This only includes article pages. If you prefer not to display your followed pages, you can disable this in your user preferences (under Advanced display options).

Other ways to follow a page

There are 3 other ways to follow a page.

  • At the end of the URL of any content article in any wiki, add ?action=watch.
  • In the FANDOM Open Source Library, there is a script that unlocks the "Follow" button.
  • Also after editing an article you can choose to follow it.
