    Maybe I'm a little too Facebook addicted but I think it would be really nice to have some sort of notification thing where it told you when a post you commented on was replied to other then having to hunt all the posts down and check the icon next to them. Maybe there is something here and I'm missing it?
    Sarbare0704 asked this great question on our Feedback forum today, and I thought the answer to it might be interesting to ALL our regular forum posters!!
    Oh...no worries, Sara! We are Facebook competitive around here!! There is this great little setting in your "Settings" menu that will accomplish just what you are asking for. Head up to your Settings menu -> then look for "Forum Settings" in your lefthand sidebar. Scroll down to "Default Thread Subscription Mode". You will see a drop-down box where the default setting is "Do Not Subscribe." You want to change this setting to: "Through My Control Panel Only" (OR you can have the notifications sent to you via email, if you don't mind a clogged up inbox!!)

    With this setting, you will get notifications each time you log in of any new responses to the threads you have posted in! Cool, huh??

    I know. I know. You finally go through the registration process, get logged into the site, and excitedly enter your first post on the forum.

    But wait? Where is it??!! Did you do something wrong? Press the wrong button? Post to the wrong thread?

    Nah. You're good. You are just being "MODERATED." All that means is that your first two posts must be read by a moderator before they will appear on the forum. That also means they won't appear immediately... but don't worry, I check often for new threads, and approve them as soon as I can - - almost always within 24 hours of your posting (and usually much sooner).

    We all want to find other secular homeschoolers near us, right?? Well, there is a feature on SHS.com that I personally think is quite cool! It is called the "Member Locator", and it is located in the Community Drop-Down Menu of the Forum. If you are willing to be "Found", all you have to do is make sure to fill in two crucial fields in your profile...

    To check about this, go to the Settings menu on the top main navigation menu, and then look for "My Settings" on the left hand sidebar. And then click on "Edit Settings".

    When you join a group on SecularHomeschool.com, you are not only able to meet and greet others who have things in common with you such as location, homeschooling style, and family situation, but you ALSO have the opportunity to share group conversations about those things!!

    To make sure you don't miss out on anything going on in your group, be sure to SUBSCRIBE to each group you belong to...that way you will be notified if any activity occurs. To do this:

    Go to your Group Page, and look in the upper right hand corner for the Group Options link:
    A drop down menu will appear with different group options. The last option will be "Subscribe to this Group". You may choose to subscribe via your Control Panel only, by daily email notification, or by weekly email notification.

    I hope you will take advantage of this feature ASAP!! Hey...everyone wants to belong...

    Well, just dont think you have to compromise and get religious propeganda disguised as curriculum! There are plenty of secular options for about everything. :)

    Thanks for your response! I take your point about secular not necessarily meaning socially progressive - finding a community that is working to fight all kinds of hate is important to us, too.

About us

SecularHomeschool.com was created to provide information, resources, and a place to share and connect with secular homeschoolers across the world. Secularhomeschool.com aims to be your one-stop shop for all things homeschool! We will be highlighting information about wonderful secular homeschool resources, and keeping you up to date with what is going on in the world of secular homeschooling. But that is only the beginning. SHS is your playground. A place to share the things that are important to you. A place to create and join groups that share your interests. A place to give and get advice. There are no limits to what you can do at Secular Homeschool, so join today and help build the community you have always wanted.

SecularHomeschool.com is a community and information source where secular homeschoolers ARE the majority. It is the home for non-religious homeschoolers, eclectic homeschoolers, freethinking homeschoolers AND anyone interested in homeschooling irrespective of religion. This site is an INCLUSIVE community that recognizes that homeschoolers choose secular homeschool materials and resources for a variety of reasons and to accomplish a variety of personal and educational goals. Although SecularHomeschool.com, and its members, have worked hard to compile a comprehensive directory of secular curricula, it does not attest that all materials advertised on our site, in our newsletters, or on our social media profiles are 100% secular. Rather, SecularHomeschool.com respects the aptitude of each individual homeschool parent to fully research any curriculum before acquiring it, to ensure that it holistically meets the educational, personal, and philosophical goals of each homeschooler.
