How to subscribe to a thread

I am just wondering if anyone can please help me to subscribe to threads? I have looked in the user control panel and cant see it in there. Thanks

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.

This was in the FAQ...Hope it helps :mrgreen:

I understand your confusion gumboots. I cannot see a subscribe link either and my hubby and I have looked everywhere. I am a member of another forum using the same phpbb software as this one and they have a "subscribe topic" link down the bottom of each forum and topic, next to the "bookmark topic" link. This board does not have it there as far as I can see. Is there some rule that you have to make a certain number of posts before you can subscribe to topics perhaps???? Help anyone??? :?

Thanks matchbox! I did find the bookmark link, but subscribing to a thread is different to bookmarking it. When you are subscribed to a thread you should get an email notification when ever a reply is made by someone to that thread. This makes life much easier, especially when it comes to keeping track of a favourite thread. But that option does not seem to be available here. :(

it used to be before they changed the forum, but before they did that we used to get heaps of porn posted on here by spammers. So its a small price to pay I reckon!!

Thanks Nikki! That explains a lot. Better off without the porn that is for sure.
