NOTE: Use of the Saved Search Follow requires that readers be registered and logged into your BLOX website (through the BLOX Registration - you can also use Facebook and OpenID registration through BLOX registration, but you could not use this with other 3rd-party registration systems). If your site is not using BLOX Registration please turn off this option following the directions above but setting Followed notifications to false.


Best use of this option relies on the paper's staff making use of Author field in assets. For more information on the Author field see Asset Authors / Photographers.

At the bottom of an article the reader will find a box with the authors avatar, bio, and a green box that says Follow (author's name).
