What does "Follow" mean?

  1. 0 Follow allows anyone to have active subscriptions to recently posted threads or threads you want to track.

    What are subscriptions?

    Subscriptions are a way of keeping track of different threads. You can choose how you are notified about updates - for example, you can have them listed in your User CP and/or receive email updates for each one.

    How do I subscribe to a thread?

    To subscribe to a thread, click the 'Thread Tools' link at the top of the list of posts then click 'Subscribe to Thread'. You can then choose the subscription mode that you wish to use for that thread.

    What subscription modes are available?

    There are a number of different subscription modes available.

    • No Email Notification - lists the subscription in your User CP only.
    • Daily Email Notification - sends one email a day with the updated threads.
    • Weekly Email Notification - sends one email per week in the same way as the Daily Email Notification.
    • Instant Email Notification - sends an email as soon as a new post is added to the thread. This is not sent for every reply and will only be sent once until you revisit the forums.

    How do I manage Subscriptions and Folders?

    Thread subscriptions can be sorted into folders for easy management. You can create as many folders as you wish by going to 'Edit Folders' in the 'Subscribed Threads' section of your User CP. To add a new folder, enter the folder name into one of the blank boxes and save the page. To delete a folder, delete the folder name. Editing a folder is done by simply editing the folder name in the list.

    You can also manage your individual subscriptions by clicking 'Thread Subscriptions' in your User CP. Here you can select which subscriptions you wish to manage and delete, move them to another folder, or change their subscription type.
