Alerts and Email Notification of new messages, tags, quotes and subscriptions.
This board can notify you through the alert system and via email when a new reply is added to a topic you subscribed, when you are tagged or quoted, when you have a new message and many more. 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 'Track This Topic' link at the top of the topic that you wish to track
- On the posting screen when replying to or creating a topic, check the 'Enable notification of replies?' checkbox
- From the Alert Settings, select what and what you want to be receiving alerts for, either via the alert system or via email.
- 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 to avoid multiple emails being sent to your email address, you will only get one e-mail for each topic you are subscribed to until the next time you visit the board.
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 the 'Subscribe to this forum' link at the bottom of the forum that you wish to subscribe to.
To unsubscribe from any forums or topics that you are subscribed to - just go to the 'Subscriptions' section of 'My Controls' and you can undo this settings from there.
