When reading a topic and on the top right of the screen you click Options>Track this topic>No E-mail Notification... Where do I click in order to find the topic later. I haven't been able to locate topics that I have chosen this option for.


Thanks,
Juha

At the top middle of every forum page is a toggle My Topics. This should show you all topics that you have posted to on the forums.

'My Topic' only displays topics that I have either started or participated in. I don't think it displays topics of interest which I intend to follow and clicked Option>Track this Topic>No E-mail Notification... This is actually what it says No E-mail Notification:

"This option will not send out any email notification but will retain the topic or forum in your subscriptions panel".

Maybe it's me that can't see things

OK, if you haven't participated in a topic, then you will have to chose either "Track this Topic" or Subscribe to this Forum" under the "Option" tab in the upper right hand corner of the thread.
You'll then be given the choice of type of notification.

If this is not working for you in your browser, then you need to clear your history and cookies.

In your "My Controls" panel is where you should find the topics and forums that you have subscribed to.

I normally don't subscribe to the whole forum- only a particular topic, therefore I select Options>Track this Topic>Daily E-mail Digest for topics of interest. For this I receive an e-mail on each topic daily... But when I click 'No E-mail Notification' instead of 'Daily E-mail Digest', I don't know where to locate it. Although it say:

"This option will not send out any email notification but will retain the topic or forum in your subscriptions panel"

... there is no where to see, i.e. where is that 'subscription panel' it talks about?

Thanks

Hello Juha,

In order to find topics you have subscribed to, click on My Controls near the middle top of the screen. This will take you to your BC control panel. On the left hand side is a menu. The third bold entry going down is Subscriptions, and the first entry under that is Topics. Click on Topics, and you will now see the topics you have subscribed to categorized by forum.

You may also unsubscribe from topics there. To do that, put a check mark in the little boxes to the right of the topic, make sure in the box below the topics it says "Unsubscribe" then click on With Selected.

Hi Orange Blossom,

Thanks a lot for your reply.

I think you've answered my question. Can't believe how I didn't figure that out! Thank you... I can now manage things better.

Glad I could help Juha.

Can't believe how I didn't figure that out!


Just like I can't believe I didn't see the search link near the top of the window until a few days ago. And I've been on BC how long? :thumbsup:
