How do I get notified of new posts / replies?
You can get notified of new messages by subscribing to a forum / thread. By subscribing to a forum, you will receive email notifications about new posts / replies within that forum. And by subscribing to a thread, you will receive email notifications about new replies within the thread.
Subscribing is very easy, as you only have to use the “Subscribe to this Forum / Thread” menu located close to top of the forum / thread pages.
You will notice a few options under the drop down:
How do I automatically subscribe to my own thread?
- Don’t get email notification -> you will basically bookmark the thread without receiving any notification.
- Get Instant Notification -> as described, instant email notification.
- Get Daily Notification
- Get Weekly Notification
If you wish to subscribe to your thread so that you get notified immediately about new replies, you can do so on the message posting page (without having to use the menu shown above).
Scroll down on the message editor, and you will see under the Options section, a drop down with similar selections for subscription. RSS Feed Notification
Yes, if you wish not to use email notification of any kind, you can choose RSS feed notification. RSS feed subscription capability is often built into your browser, and you will find the “RSS feed” button right beside the “Subscribe to …” menu on every forum / message page.
