To subscribe to IHLS website forum topics:
How to subscribe to an entire forum topic group.
Go to the Forums tab. Click on the link Please use your L2 account to login
Log in using your L2 account
Go to your user profile.
At the top of the page, in the upper right, in the black bar, you should see (indicated by the arrow in the image below), in white text, Hello username where “username” is your name. Click on your name.
Once you are on your user profile, you will see some tabs above your name, one tab, Subscriptions, is circled below. Click on that tab.
On the Subscriptions page, you will see more tabs. The overview shows how many of what type of item you have subscriptions for. At the moment, our test user has no subscriptions. The pages/threads tab will show you what pages/threads you are subscribed to. You can unsubscribe on that page by unselecting the thread and clicking Save. You can go to content types (underlined in black below) and subscribe to ALL forum topics. If you do this, anytime anyone posts ANY new posts or replies in the IHLS forums, you will get an email. Most likely, you will want to use categories instead.
We will look at categories in more detail.
Click on categories (underlined in teal in the image above)
This is where you can select specific forums to subscribe to. Click in the box next to the forum topic you want to follow. Welcome…, SHARE, and Library types cannot be selected, but you can select the topics beneath those “containers” which interest you.
After making your selections, scroll down and click Save.
Make sure your email address is up to date on L2, as that is the email that will be used by the IHLS forums to send notifications.
