Hi,

I'm not overly familiar with the forum software here so just wondering where is the setting that automatically subscribes me to topics I have participated in?

Click on My Controls at the top of the page and on the left hand side, scroll down to subscriptions. Select the Participating Topics then choose what you want, 7 days, 30 days, or all

No sorry perhaps I didn't explain very well. It's just with phpbb there is an option I can enable ("Automatically notify of replies in topics") which means I get an email notification on all topics I participate in automatically without me having to check a box or going to 'Track this topic'.

There are three ways to subscribe to a topic:
Click the 'Options' menu at the top of a topic, and go to 'Track this topic'
On the posting screen when replying to or creating a topic, check the 'Enable email notification of replies?' checkbox.
From the 'Email Settings' section of your User CP (My Controls) check the 'Enable Email Notification by default?' option, this will automatically subscribe you to any topic that you make a reply to.


Above quote from here: Help Topics > Email Notification of new messages

However in that help topic there are also "are four different types of subscriptions". There have been some issues with anything other than "Immediate Email Notification". So it is advised to select that option.

Hope this helps.
