This board can notify you when a new reply is added to a topic. Many users find this useful to keep up to date on topics without the need to view the board to check for new messages.

There are three ways to subscribe to a topic:
  • Click the 'Options' menu at the top of a topic, and go to 'Track this topic'
  • On the posting screen when replying to or creating a topic, check the 'Enable email notification of replies?' checkbox.
  • From the 'Email Settings' section of your User CP (My Controls) check the 'Enable Email Notification by default?' option, this will automatically subscribe you to any topic that you make a reply to.
Please note that there are four different types of subscriptions:

Immediate Email Notification
This option will send out a notification immediately after a new topic or reply has been made regardless of your activity.

Delayed Emailed Notification
This option will send out a notification if a new topic or reply has been made and you're not active on the board.

Daily Email Digest
This option will send out a daily digest showing all new replies or topics for that day.

Weekly Email Digest
This option will send out a weekly digest showing all new replies or topics for that week.


You are also able to subscribe to each individual forum on the board, to be notified when a new topic is created in that particular forum. To enable this, click 'Forum Options' menu at the top forum you wish to subscribe to, and click the 'Subscribe to this forum' link.

To unsubscribe from any forums or topics that you are subscribed to - just go to the 'Subscriptions' section of 'My Controls' and you can do this from there.

Thank you for this topic.
Just I don't find the "options" menu at the top of a topic. Same for the "Forum Options" menu. Can you explain more where to find them or attach a screen shot? Sorry, I'm new in the forum and still don't know it very well...

By default, topic starters subscribe (or follow) to topic they made. Anyone else can also follow a topic by click the "Follow this topic" button (the red circle in the attached screenshot).

I also can't seem to follow super Admin's instructions (but I'm a computer atheist Posted Image) - they're probably for the old forum (BBU-bioforum before upgrade)?

Anyways, I see two ways of setting up notification options...go way way up to the top of the page- righthand side and click on your display name > My Settings> Notification Options...and then you can check all your choices and those would be your custom settings. Or beside your display name is a square notification icon (I call it the peephole), click on it and select options...the same page comes out and you can choose whatever you want......

you're welcome.....and perhaps super Admin or the great Panda himself Posted Image can update the Notification Options instructions (I went crazy looking for 'enable email notification of replies' checkbox in the posting screen...:P)
