Help Topic: Forum and Topic Reply Notifications


The eGullet Forums 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:
  1. Click the 'Watch This Topic' link at the top of the topic that you wish to track.
  2. On the posting screen when replying to or creating a topic, check the 'Enable email notification of replies?' checkbox.
  3. From the 'Email Settings' section of your User CP (My Controls in the User Navigation Box) 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 too many emails being sent to your email address, you will only get an email for the first reply to each topic you are subscribed to until you log back in to the forums.

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 Settings' (in the User Navigation Box) and you can do this from there.
