Defaulting to local area

Hi, I've probably missed it, but how to I get mylocalforum to default to only my local area ? 

For example, if I hit the "New posts since last visit" on the site menu on the right hand side, it seems to default to UK wide, whereas I'm only interested in my local area. 

Thanks.

Hi

Click on the menu top left and then click update your details, you can then choose the county you are most interested in and the town you are most interested in and then click 'update my profile' .

If you have any problems just let me know.

Hi Jan - thanks for the response. I've already got that set - to Essex and Billericay. I updated again to make sure, but still if on the right hand side I click the "New posts since your last visit" or "Unread posts" it seems to show "New posts in the United Kingdom forum". .... am I misunderstanding ? 

Thanks.

Hi

Sorry about that, it's been put as a county on its own and we will fix that very soon but here's the link:

https://www.mylocalforum.co.uk/area/brighton-brighton-and-hove-22964/

Thank you for pointing that out.
