Solved I want to follow threads that I have replied to

Specs: Windows Server 2003, Celeron/ 4 gb RAM
When I first arrive at Computing.net I see the questions I have asked but I don't see quick links to the threads I have replied to. Is there an easy way through settings to follow threads I have been active in?

Hey there chrisgraf2!

The feature already exists, though it might be easily overlooked. Go to:
http://www.computing.net/cgi-bin/my...
And under Forum Settings, select "Automatically add my replies to My Computing.net" and you'll be able to track threads you are participating in.

Hope this helps!

✔ Best Answer
As a matter of fact, because you encountered this little bit of confusion/uncertainty, we've gone ahead and made a change to the option to make sure it more appropriately reflects what happens when you toggle it on/off.

You'll note the text now says: "Automatically track threads I reply to". Hopefully this lends a bit more clarity to the option for other users. :)

Thanks! I have turned that on but don't see my earlier replies. Will this only effect future replies or am I not looking in the right place?

chrisgraf2,

Only future replies. Unfortunately, there wouldn't be a way to have to affect earlier replies. If you would like to add those to your tracked message list, just click the star at the top to the left of the the title of the thread you wish to track.

Thanks!
Justin

I usually enter Computing.Net from this link:
http://www.computing.net/cgi-bin/my...

Tracked threads are at the top and all forum to the right.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
