How to Get Notified by Email about Forum Activity
« on: November 03, 2013, 03:05:01 PM »
This forum has a really nice feature that will let you control whether you get an email from the forum if someone posts something.

You can either "subscribe" to a whole category
   -- Look for the Subscribe button at the top and bottom of the Category list.

Or to just specific topics.

For topics that you create and/or add to, there is a checkbox at the bottom of the create message screen that says "Check this box to be notified of replies to this topic".  This is checked by default, but you can uncheck it if you want.

If it is a topic you have NOT commented on, you can still subscribe to the topic by using the Subscribe button at the top and bottom of the specific topic.

If at any time you decide that you don't want notifications any more, you can unsubscribe at any time.  What used to be the "Subscribe" button will now be "Unsubscribe" for anything you are subscribed to.  Just click it.

Even easier is to go to your Profile page, click on the "Subscriptions" bar, and it will show you all topics and categories you are currently subscribed to.  By checking one or more of the checkboxes on the right side of the items, and going to the bottom and changing "Choose Action" to Unsubscribe Selected, you can unsubscribe to one or more all the at same time.

Note that NO ONE except forum Administrators can see your email address.

If you have any questions or problems, don't hesitate to ask.
