Tracking a category from a mobile device


Can someone track (or watch) a category from their Android device? i know that you can do that from preferences, but i was hoping to see a drop down list while viewing a category, this is possible from the desktop view, but it doesn’t seems to work from my mobile.

You can in an iOS device if you tap on the Category title and Discourse displays the title and definition.

I’m not sure you understand the question. The OP is looking for the equivalent button for on a mobile device.

Definitely isn’t on an Android device.

Yep, you are correct. I can track the topic but not the category.

You’ll need to visit your profile page to do that at the moment. Limited space on mobile device screens, sadly.


Thanks for the reply guys, in my forum categories are very important and
represent some sort of a sub-forum, members will be associated with one
(sub)category and not the others, so following the relevant one is quite
important… i guess i have to make it clear on how they can do that from
their profile preferences…

I also would like to see tracking option added to mobile. Seems like there is room in the current responsive design.

Enable tracking from category on mobile view?
