Dumb question, sorry ...
My profile page shows a list of forums that I am subscribed to, and a list of watched topics. I have used watched topics before, but have no idea how to subscribe to a forum. Is there a button somewhere for that? :oops:

While I'm asking embarrassing questions... what does "Pin" mean in the context of "The Property Pin"? (Probably shoulda asked before my 1250th post) :oops: :oops: :oops:

Subscribe to forum needs to be enabled by the admins. Probably got disabled during an update.

The Pin is for bursting the bubble

Any admins interested in enabling it ... for the "latest posts junkies"?

You should be able to subscribe now, the link is at the top of the forum page beside the page/topic count.

Cool. It works. A bit disappointed that it doesn't include the text of the post in the e-mail notification, e.g.:

Quote:
Hello ps200306,

You are receiving this notification because you are watching the forum, "Revolting Republic, Pt VII - Marching toward default?" at "thepropertypin.com". This forum has received a new reply to the topic "RTE Property Programmes 10/10/2011" since your last visit. You can use the following link to view the last unread reply, no more notifications will be sent until you visit the topic.


Being able to see the topic name is a start, but other forums I subscribe to include the text of the post, which saves having to actually visit the topic in 90% of cases. Don't suppose this can be changed? But thanks anyway.

Having tried it for a few days, I realise this isn't the feature I want at all. It doesn't send the text of new posts, and it only sends one notification per forum and no more until you next log on to that forum.

What I really want is an RSS feed.

Does anyone else subscribe to the Pin's RSS feed using M$ Outlook as their reader?

I get sporadic updates ... sometimes many more than one per day on a given topic, but not all of them, more often than not.
For instance, on the "Urban vs. Rural" thread, I have 27 updates in Outlook over several days, for 113 posts on the thread.

I've also used Feedler RSS on the iPad, which is a client for Google News feeds afaik, and it seems to get all updates.

Am I doing something wrong, or is the Pin, or is M$ Outlook just crap?
