Auto-subscribing to a thread was created by philiplardner
Hi Darragh,

Quick suggestion for the FireBoard Forum - is there any chance you could change the settings (if others are happy with the idea) so that a person is automatically 'Subscribed' to a thread if they post to it or if they start a new topic? The website would then notify them of any replies or other activity on threads that they are obviously interested in following. Users can still unsubscribe from a topic as usual.

Thanks,

Phil.

PS - Any new news on restoring the New Topic Notification emails?

Philip,

I have turned on the "Post-subscription checked by default" for auto-subscribing, from now on the subscribe box on the post will be automatically ticked

The topic notification emails are planned for Kunena, see kunena.uservoice.com/pages/general/sugge...-to-forum-categories

We will upgrade Fireboard to Kunena once Kunena is stable for Joomla 1.5 and Joomla 1.6 has arrived with proper access control mechanisms as we need these for private boards.

Thanks Darragh - and thanks for the update on Kunena... I haven't been following its development as closely as I should!

It looks like I'm been auto subscribed to threads I'm in, this means I'm getting auto emails about them, is there a way I can turn this off for me ?

I'm not crazy about this either,
could you make it user specific or else turn it off maybe?
I keep forgetting to un tick the box and my inbox in now
filling up which is a pain.

AFAIK guys, it only pertains to the threads you have replied to. Just remember to untick the box for the moment when you do reply. :)
