Following and unfollowing a thread
« on: January 01, 2012, 04:57:13 PM »
Is there a way to follow a thread without posting a message to it and having it come up when you select "Show new replies to your posts"? And also is there a way to not have a thread show up under "Show new replies to your posts" after you have posted a message to a thread?

Yes, and yes.

To follow a thread you have not posted to, there's  a "notify" button at the top of each topic.

You can also modify your profile (profile>modify profile>notifications> to choose from a number of notification options.

Looking for the perfect button?  I may have one in my Etsy shop:

or on my website:

Thank you, thank you. I will go explore these options. :)

I'm afraid I can't get this to work the way I would like.

If I reply on a thread and return later and choose the option to "Show New Replies to Your Posts," all the threads I have posted on show up. I understand that's the way it should work.

Now, let's say I no longer want a thread that I have posted to show up when I choose "Show New Replies to Your Posts." Is there anyway to have a thread not show up that I have posted to? Because that's what I really want to do.  :)

No; I don't think so.  I'll bring that up next time I'm on the SMF site.

Greetings DL.
I'm looking for the same solution as Zalin.
I mistakenly commented on one of the SWAP child threads (I think that's the right terminology) which then got ported over to the main SWAP thread.
They are a very active group.  ;)

I'm not really interested in following that thread and use my "Show new replies to your posts." link quite a bit.

Of course this isn't a pressing issue, just providing some feedback for you.
And may I take this op to thank you for dedication to this site.
This must be a nice time of the year in the Sonoran Desert.

Yes; I understand what you're saying.  I do wish they would enable customizing that list a bit.

You're welcome.  And yes, it's gorgeous here this time of year. :)
