  • We don't have the ability to enable users to subscribe to email alerts for all threads or all posts in a forum. You can subscribe to individual threads though by opening the thread and clicking alert me. To use this, you first need to configure your email address to receive alerts by going to the My Settings "Configure Alerts" section. The My Settings link is in the right hand column of the forums. 

    In the future we are looking to move from forums to tags, enabling users to subscribe to threads and posts per tag (or set of tags). I don't have an eta for this yet, but some current forums bay have this ability in the January time frame.

  • Thanks for the quick reply.  That is too bad though.  Now I'll need to go the forum itself to manually subscribe to any thread.  You may want to consider this an option.

    Thanks,
