Perhaps I'm overlooking something obvious, but I can't figure out how to subscribe to a thread I want to follow without first posting a message to it.  There must be some way to do this...How??


Thanks for the help.

There should be a checkbox at the top left that says "Email me when someone replies to this thread." Check that box and you're subscribed.

The checkbox only seems to be there if I've posted a message to that thread. But if I just pick a new thread at random, I don't see the checkbox.
I guess I'm still confused.

Sorry for the double post.


(I'm still learning how to drive this new software vehicle.  So far, I've figured out where the accelerator pedal and the horn are.  That's enough to get me going.  Got no idea where the brake pedal is, but heck, who needs brakes to drive? :D:D/DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/tongue.gif )


Dawg :cool:

Edit Update: Nope I was wrong there just some forums that even if I've created a new topic and/or made a reply to an existing one I get no subscribe check box at forum or the topic level. The forum that I tried was 'Track Trestles an Bridges' don't know


Just checked things out, here's what I found if I've posted anything to a given forum then I'll see the check box regardless of whether I've posted anything to that specific topic. However if I have made no posting in that forum (i.e. Add new topic or reply to an existing one) I don't get the check box displayed any where in that forum.


The above holds true both at the forum level and at the topic level within that forum.


You might try the following...


Light Grey tool bar in upper part of web page, on the right side you should see a 'My Profile' option click it


Then...
[*]On the Profile tab down in the lower-left you'll see 'Edit Profile' click the link. [*]After screen displays scroll down to the second section. [*]There you'll find a check box. [*]Subscribe to topics [/list] [*]And a drop down list 'Subscription Type' [*]Instant [*]Daily Summary [*]Weekly Summary [/list] [/list]

See if that will fix your problem

Well until this gets fixed, MLS has certainly lost a lot of its punch for me. I'll stay tuned. I'm sure it will take awhile to get the bugs out.


(This is also my first reply, just to check things out.) I also seem to have been demoted from Engineer to Passenger status. /DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/crying.gif
