Subscribing to a topic?

Postby Trinity » Fri Jan 28, 2022 12:01 pm

Is it still possible to “subscribe topic” so that you get an email every time someone posts a reply to it?

How do I subscribe to specific forums or topics?
To subscribe to a specific forum, click the “Subscribe forum” link upon entering the forum. To subscribe to a topic, reply to the topic with the subscribe checkbox checked or click the “Subscribe topic” link within the topic itself.


That's in the faq - but I don't see the checkmark when I reply.

Hey lucidguppy! Thanks for replying. I did actually see that on the FAQs before posting. But I think the FAQs were pasted from the old site, because like you said “Subscribe Topic” is no longer down there next to “Bookmark Topic.” I used to subscribe to topics all the time so I’m not sure what to do now, oh well. I did “bookmark” a topic recently but then couldn’t figure out where my bookmarks were. I do only use my iPhone, as opposed to a laptop, so maybe that’s part of the problem? My husband borrowed my laptop for work but as soon as he gives it back I’ll test this theory.

...or click the “Subscribe topic” link within the topic itself.


I access this forum from a desktop computer. I do not see any link within the topics labeled "Subscribe topic".

Thanks for checking that for me, QubitBob! Oh well, it was nice while it lasted, but no big deal because I can just go to “View your posts” instead.
