How do you mark a thread "notify of replies" (?)

Not wishing to appear dense  lol  but how do you set up e-mail notifications of replies?

 

The only options that seem to be available are (on Thread Options)

subscribe to RSS feed * mark topic as new * float this topic to the top * bookmark * subscribe * printer friendly page

 

On this new start-a-topic page, there is a box (ticked) that says 'email me when someone replies' - could there not be such a box on all views of a thread, or an option like before that says 'Notify' (?)

 

Thanks Smiley

 

Penny.

ps. whatever happened to preview-post?

Thread options (top right) should allow you to subscribe to the thread. You can manage notifications here: https://community.plus.net/t5/user/myprofilepage/tab/user-subscriptions%3Anotification-settings

Thanks Chris - gathered from your reply that the way to get notifications is to "subscribe".

 

So, just tried to subscribe to the Everything Else board (which I think is where hosting-related threads now appear) and got "oops! authentication failed" (or some such).  Tried to attach a screenshot of that message to this post (assume click photo icon, locate graphic via 'browse' below the post text) and it hasn't appeared (or at least I don't think so, tried to preview this post, graphic wasn't visible and then there wasn't an option to return to the edit and it just took me back to the original thread, so have had to make a reply again).

 

Then tried to preview the second attempt, and got 

X Error Message 

Sorry, unable to complete the action you requested.

This time had made a copy of the text before I tried the preview, so this is (now) my third try at making this post.

 

Not finding this new Comm Site especially user-friendly, so far : /

@Penny The Authentication error is one of the things listed in the bugs thread.

This only happened this morning whilst they seemed to be "fixing" something. It was fine up until then and working well despite the shortcomings that need to be added.

read through the bugs thread, saw that someone else has also (since) discovered the preview-then-no-edit issue.

 

Seems like a lot has "stopped working" just in the last 24 hours, so going to assume that the "no preview" error message (separate) and the "no-file-upload" error, experienced earlier, are just symptomatic of whatever has gone awry.

 

I hope they can get things fixed okay - probably going to be a week or two before "normal service" can resume, maybe.
