Forum Subscriptions and Bookmarks

Postby podaac » Fri Sep 26, 2014 2:17 pm

What is the difference between bookmarking and subscribing?
Bookmarking in phpBB3 is much like bookmarking in your web browser. You aren’t alerted when there’s an update, but you can come back to the topic later. Subscribing, however, will notify you when there is an update to the topic or forum on the board via your preferred method or methods.

How do I subscribe to specific forums or topics?
To subscribe to a specific forum, click the “Subscribe forum” link upon entering the forum. To subscribe to a topic, reply to the topic with the subscribe checkbox checked or click the “Subscribe topic” link within the topic itself.

Example:
Below is an example of what you will see when you log into forum and click on your “user control panel”.

To subscribe to a topic in the forum, go to desired forum and click on the box “Subscribe topic” – this will then change from a check mark to an “x” in the box.

Once you subscribe, you can go back to your “user control panel” and see which topics you are now watching.

To remove your subscriptions, go to your User Control Panel and follow the links to your subscriptions.
