Subscribing to posts & forums

Post by Russell Phillips » Thu Dec 28, 2017 11:32 am

The new forum has some new features, and some features work slightly differently.

When you post a reply to a topic, you can elect to be notified when replies are posted - simply make sure the "Notify me when a reply is posted" box is ticked. To have this ticked by default, go to the User Control Panel -> Board preferences -> Edit posting defaults and set Notify me upon replies by default to Yes.

There are two ways you can be notified - either through the Notifications menu at the top of forum pages, or by email. Go to User Control Panel -> Board preferences -> Edit notification options to select how to be notified of various things.

In addition to subscribing to individual threads, you can subscribe to a forum, so that you will get a notification when someone posts to that forum. To subscribe, simply go to the forum and click the Subscribe forum link at the bottom of the page.
