Subscriptions and new post email notifications

Postby admin » Tue Jul 15, 2008 1:47 am

If you want to be notified via email whenever someone adds a new post to a forum or topic scroll down to the very bottom of the page. You should see a link that says "subscribe". If you click subscribe, you will get an email whenever someone posts to that topic thread or forum. If you are already subscribed to a forum or topic, and no longer wish to recieve the email notifications, then you scroll to the bottom of the page again (and this time since you're already subscribed) the link will say unsubscribe. Click the unsubscribe link and the emails for new posts in that area will stop. You can also manage your subscriptions all in one convenient location - The user control panel (UCP).

The UCP will be your new best friend on this forum, it lets you manage all of your personal data and settings. Click to enter the UCP (shown at the top left) and on the overview tab you'll see a section on the left titled "Manage Subscriptions". If you click on the manage subscriptions link it will show you all of the boards and topics you're watching for new posts. You can select multiple items from that list and unsubscribe as you wish.

There is also something similar called a bookmark (you'll notice the manage bookmarks option just below the manage subscriptions option in the UCP, and the bookmark link is located right next to the subscribe link when you read a post). Bookmarks let you keep track of items you were interested in for future reference (but won't notify you of replies). While bookmarks sound very helpful, please remember that the posts on this forum are automatically removed 30-60 days after the last reply depending on the board. If you bookmark something expecting to read it 3 months from now, the post will probably be deleted. If you really want to keep track of that information, you're better off copying and pasting the info into a document on your computer.
