How To Add Email Notifications

When on the thread that you'd like to receive notifications of new posts on, click on the options link and choose subscribe.


Now you need to change the subscription to an email one.

Click on edit my preferences > notifications > subscriptions.

Now click on edit under the operations column on the subscription you'd like to get email notifications of.

In the send method drop down, choose HTML Mail.

Now click save subscription. You're done. You'll now get an email any time there is a reply to the thread.

No, for me it did not work.  I followed all the steps, and changed it to Immediately, and it said it was successful. But there have been new posts to my subscribed threads, and I am still not getting any email notifications.

Hi Everyone!

Not sure why you're not seeing them. I don't have to change my to immediately, so I aplogize for not adding that step (I didn't know it needed to be done).

I'll see if I can find out if maybe there is a delay happening. Will let you know!

Thanks for putting these instructions online, Erin, but so complex! Anything that makes it harder to participate in Poets Workshop could deter potential members from joining, and we need all we can get.
