Manage your forum subscriptions

I subscribed to a particular post, to receive updates notifications by email. I would like to unsubscribe but it's not listed in the subscriptions in my control panel.

I'd appreciate some guidance, thanks!

That's a good point Gaston - and is something I've been meanging to check out myself (to unsubscribe to some older threads).

Somtam - it would be good if the Manage Your Subscriptions just showed the threads that I've subscribed to (and exclude the ones that I have posted on recently). Then I could mark off the ones that I don't want anymore. I can always go to the 'Your most recent posts' page to find other threads that I may want to link to so that I can subscribe.

Gaston - I've reported my post to bring it to Somtam's attention. :-)

Hi Gaston,

Can you post the link to a post that you've subscribed to please? Not sure I follow you (still pre-first-coffee-of-day here :)

Thanks

Hi Somtam - here is an example.

I just received an email notification for a thread that I must have subscribed to several years ago: https://www.travelfish.org/board/post/thailand/6588_first-time-traveller-what-to-pack--
At the top of that thread, I see the diagonal 'Subscribe' button thingy at the top - which doesn't make sense to me since I already subscribed. What would make sense is an 'Unsubscribe' option.

If I go to Manage Subscriptions: https://www.travelfish.org/forum-subscriptions.php I only see recent threads that I have posted on (going back to March this year). The list on this page should only show threads that I've subscribed to - not recent posts. I can't see how to unsubscribe from the aforementioned thread.

Make sense? Hopefully you've had that coffee now..... :-)

Hi Somtam,
this post:
https://www.travelfish.org/board/post/indochina/18770_completely-overwhelmed-with-planning---

I subscribed to it but never posted a reply. It's not in the "manage your subscriptions" list of my Member Center, so I'm not certain how to remove it. The only ones that are in my list are ones I replied to.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks busylizzy

Ahhh ok, I see what you mean now.

Hmmm ok, leave it with me, will be a couple of days to sort out.

If you want me to unsubscribe you from any manually in the meantime, just post the link and I'll remove the relationship.
