We have had many people post their story here and then people have commented, encouraged and supported……but we don’t hear back.

This is because people aren’t aware they need to subscribe to the thread in order to know that people are replying.

So when you post your story you hit the subscribe button at the bottom of the post then you will receive an email notification when people reply to your story.

If it gets too much you can always un-subscribe to the individual thread by clicking on the link in the emails you receive.

It will say something like this

| Direct unsubscribe link (thread):

Is there a way of setting the default setting to subscribe instead of doing it manually?

I know I have a few subscriptions set up, but it may be easier for new users to have it as the new default.

Just my two cents….

If there was an easier way, I can assure you, I would have implemented it already :p

The thing with Drupal is that unless you’re willing to write your own module, you’re only able to use what’s available.

In any case, I have a large to-do list for the site, and looking for better modules for subscriptions is definitely on there.
