    On many other forums I'm automatically subscribed to a thread once I post in it. I haven't found a way to set that here, and I keep forgetting to do it manually for each thread. Is there a setting for it? If so, where?

    Thanks [​IMG]

    I'm a web programmer so let me know if you need some work done. Sorry I can't do it for free, I gotta pay bills, but I'd give you a reasonable rate.

    I'm thinking the auto-subscribe shouldn't be too hard of a patch. Add the choice to one of the user's settings pages, and add a field to the appropriate database table. Then when the user replies to a message, if they've chosen to auto-subscribe the subscribe box will already be checked automatically.

    Send me an email if you want to discuss. Thanks.

    Would that feature automatically subscribe us to all of the threads we comment on? I'm not sure I would like that. I only subscribe to the ones that contain info that I want to revisit.

    It'd only do it if you chose the option in your settings aka 'Profile'. You'd still be able to adjust individual threads later.

    Or if the mods wanted it setup some other way I could do it however they want.
