notification of new/updated topics

Postby calum on Wed May 17, 2006 9:15 am

hi,

on some other forums, it's possible to get a daily summary by email of all new/updated topics. Is that possible here, please?

thanks much,
calum.

You can set your profile up to send an email if someone responds to a topic you posted in.

Other than that, I think the coloured crosses give you a good indication of where has been busy.

Also, I like to use the link at the top right of the Forum Index page:

"View posts since last visit"

That displays a page with a list of all the posts on the board that I haven't seen since the last time I was on. I can then read a new post and use the back button to go back to the list until I have read all of the posts in the list.

yup, thanks; I was hoping for something that would alert me I need to visit the forums, rather than trying to remember to visit each day. That works less and less well the more you join different forums...

Am I right that new posts in Announcements aren't marking the thread in the general directory of a sub-forum, so you can see there's a new post in that thread? I know new posts in Topics do, but I noticed it didn't seem to work that way with Announcements, like the one on the Sylvian-forum.

Yes you are.
Actually, if it hadn't been for your post here I would have missed the thread on the DS biography.
