Custom Browsing With Channels by Jeysie Custom Browsing With Channels by Jeysie
Here's something I've been wanting to cook up for a while: a guide to Channels, which is a handy way to set up your own "front page browsing" that I think tends to get overlooked/not known about. Just had to get around to finally assembling and notating all of my screencaps.

Sorry for how long the sucker is, but it was kind of a choice between super-wide or super-long, and I figured that super-long was probably better. =P

And of course it still shows up auto-sized on my screen due to the width... if it looks a little fuzzy for any of you, try downloading the full-sized version.

Also, here's a handy link for the FAQ referenced in one of the steps: FAQ #577: How do I use the Search?

Edit: Um, wow, I didn't expect this to actually get a DD. :XD: Now I feel a little guilty about the MS Paint-ness of it. But a big thank you to anyone who gives it a look, and hopefully it helps you out!

Feel free, I think it's a woefully underrated feature.

I miss when it used to be the actual front page versus the current mostly-useless one. I don't even bother with the front page any longer; I just have the Channels bookmarked.

Thank you for linking this on TV tropes, and for making it in the first place. I had already customized my channels some, but had no idea just how far you could take it.

Man, I forgot I HAD linked it. X3

You're quite welcome. I think it's a great feature, and needs to be pimped more. Especially since it helps navigating the otherwise kinda crappy front page..

Well, you can't pretend they didn't call it upon themselves. Especially Kphoria.
