I've been gone a while, and the forum seems to have changed since I was here last.

It used to be possible to go to the user control panel, and there was a list of "subscribed threads" (ones I had participated in).  If there were new replies since my last visit, they were listed in bold, and moved to the top of the list.

I cannot seem to find the control panel, or the subscription list.

Is there an equivalent functionality in this present version of the forum software, and if so, how do I utilize it?

Thank you.

When you reply to a thread, you'll be subscribed- at least it works that way here. And at the top of the page is "View new content". If you wish to sub to a thread you don't post in, under New Topic is "Follow this thread". Just click it and confirm. 


Welcome back!

"Laxguy" means a guy who loves lacrosse.

I thought that was how it should work, but I was confused when I found the setting for "auto follow posts I reply to", turned it on, and it still didn't work.

I went back, and it was still not selected, so I must have changed the setting, but not clicked the appropriate button on the page to save the change.

It's working now, I got a notification of your response to this thread.

Thank you.
