posting possibility?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I was wondering if:

A.) Would it be possible to have the email notification option available after you already create a thread. If you say, forget to check it when you create it. You could alway go back and check it later.

B.) Also would it be possible to add a subscribe by email to all threads so we can get notified if a post gets replied to, even if we aren't the creators of that particular thread?

Thanks in advance.

1. When you post a reply to an existing thread, you can check a "Email Notification" box. That's right, you don't have to be the thread's creator get get this option.

2. You can use the forum software to "subscribe" to any thread regardless of if you've posted in it. It keeps the list of your subscribed threads in your User Control Panel. The User CP is similar to UBB's profile/pm page but has many more options and abilities.
