Joe mentioned that one can subscribe to a forum and have an email sent everytime a new post is made. How do we do this? I can change my user preferences to get email notification for threads that I started... but I don't see how to subscribe to a forum. Thanks,

There is a link at the top (left) correction right of the box which displays the topics in a forum. As I just posted in General Discussions, the subscription only tells you when another topic is added to that forum, not if anyone posts a reply, for that you have to subscribe to each topic.

This really is the ideal behavior. You can glance at each new topic heading when a new topic is created, and if it's one you are interested in following the discussion, subscribe to the specific topic as well. You can change your settings to be auto-subscribed to any topic you post in.

Sometimes I'm so helpful even I can't stand it.

Helen,

I thought I was going blind looking for the "link" at the "top left of the box"... but in my browser it is on the right side! No wonder I couldn't find it.

Thanks for the help,
Karyn
