Email Notifications

Post by k8k8 »

How can I subscribe to email notifications of forum posts and replies? I can't seem to find it in the user control panel. There is a checkbox at the bottom of the new post page, but I'm not sure it's working.

The only way I know of that works for me is to choose the option while replying to a post.

As I write this reply, I see five options below this reply box. The last one is "Notify me when a reply is posted" and is unchecked by default.

If you decide to reply to this, you should be able to see it and select it.

If you've been doing this and don't receive notifications, maybe your email address on the board is incorrect, or maybe your ISP / Email provider is flagging the notifications as spam.

when i went looking for what you said and found it i also saw the subscribe/unsubscribe topic and 'subscribe forum' link at the bottom of most pages. there are a few boards i can't subscribe to though. but i am getting emails now.
