General Question about Forum Threads

Does anyone know if there is a way to subscribe to certain forums and/or threads even if you don't enter your own comments?

There are some categories I'd like to stay informed about but don't always have any input.

Thanks much.

Ask Younster. I don't have a clue but it is a good idea.

HI Jacqueline

Yes, it is possible to subscribe to threads that you do not post in, at the beginning of the thread above the first post, there is a box that says "thread tools", pull down the menu box and select 'Subscribe to thread', walllahhh, its done

You can also subscribe to a topic specific forum this way, just look for the thread tools box where-ever you want to keep an eye out at.

I have another question! Surely there's a way to bookmark a thread at the point you quit reading, so you can easily find where you left off when you come back, yes? I sure can't figure out how to do it.....Help! Please and thank you!

Okay, to skip to the first unread post, you hit the checkmark that is next to the title of the thread, it should take you to the 'go to first new post', if you hover over it, your browser should say that, too..mine does (safari)

Thank You! It worked. That's much easier, then the searching or note keeping system I've been using! Tee Hee!

Evidently! I'm sure there are many things you can do on this forum, that I'm clueless about. I was going to have my 14 year old niece help me figure out how to post a pic yesterday, but I fumbled around and actually figured it out on my own before I had to bring in the child to help. LOL! And then I was sooooo proud of myself when it worked! Yay Me!!!

Ahh..but I would like to think one becomes wiser with age? I'm 40, IQ approx 148 (unless its gone down with age ), though..both of my sons have scored over 150 on the standford binet, and, well, as logic would conclude they are younger, and smarter...so, so much for that theory

I am smarter than my DH, though!! Gucci? ehh ??? not sure on that one, she's manipulated me pretty good..she's probably over 150 too.

I actually didn't know the answer to the first Q, I had to go find a thread I wasn't subscribed to and figure out how to do it, atleast I have these kids to ask if I can't do something, though..haha

I think Kara is our go to person for the tech stuff that some of us look at and go "huh?" Stacey, it was a learning curve for all of us when we started. I must say though, and it's a bit embarrassing, after being here for almost 3 1/2 years, I just figured out I don't have to scroll down to the manage attachments to add a photo. All I have to do is click on the paper clip and the window comes up. That was a duh moment for me. BTW, that only works if you click on "post reply" rather than "quick reply."
