Automatic subscribe on threads when posting replys?


I miss a functionality in this forum:

  • Automatic subscribe to threads when I post a message in a thread

Most other forums offer the possibility to

  • Automatic subscribe to threads started by myself
  • Automatic subscribe to other threads when I post something in a thread

Currently I often answer a question or ask a question and forgot to subscribe to the thread.
So only when comming back a few days later I (perhaps) see the reply…

Yup, you’re not the only one asking for this question - I’d love to see these things too. Unfortunately, there’s no setting to achieve this, not as far as I’ve found at least. Changing this behavior would probably require directly manipulating Liferay’s code, and that’s something we want to avoid.

If someone can show me otherwise, though, I’ll see to it that the settings get changed.

Bump. I would like to add my support for this feature to be implemented… if it’s possible. :wink:

And now, I will click the subscribe button.

An update – Why is it that when you reply to a thread that you are already subscribed to,
it drops your subscription
? That’s even worse than not having it automatically add a subscription on reply. :slight_smile:
