Email Notifications of New Posts

Post by Tom Supergan » Sat, Feb 05 2011 3:09 pm

Some people are puzzled when they get notifications of some posts, but all of a sudden a new topic is started and they don't get any notifications and feel left out.

This can happen when you subscribe to individual topics, but not to the entire forum. so when a new topic gets started, you aren't automatically subscribed to it. If a new forum gets added, there is no current way to be notified of it.

The screen shots below point out where to subscribe to forums and where to check all of your current subscriptions. The subscription link moves around the page (usually above the topics listing or the bottom left of the page) depending on what skin you are using and what you are subscribing to.

Make sure to start with Step #1. Steps #2 & #3 lists your current subscriptions where you can unsubscribe from many at a time..
