Question Unsubscribing from threads more easily?


Having the thread subscription feature is great because it helps keep track of the threads we're working on. Unfortunately, many people don't have the courtesy of following-up on advice they get from the regulars here. After a while, hundreds of dead threads wind up on the subscription list.

The only way I know to purge them is to actually go to the thread and use Thread Tools>>Unsubscribe from this thread.

Is there a better/easier way?

Thanks again to the forum moderators, the web hosting site, and the user community for an outstanding forum.

You can also unsubscribe from threads as you view them (for example if a problem looks solved and the thread has wandered off topic) it's up at the top of the firest post under "Thread Tools"

Thanks, but this is exactly what I said that I don't want to do.

Sorry, I'm retarded.

Try going to "Subscribed Threads" (on the right hand panel). Then you can check a box at the top (next to "notification") and it will check all the boxes on that page. Then at the bottom ("selected threads"), from the drop down menu pick "Delete Subscriptions". That will let you get rid of a whole page (mine is set to 50 threads per page) at once. Still a bit tedious as you have to do each page individually, but better than one at a time...

Subscribed Threads is certainly the easiest way to manage things.

Thanks, but I see now that I am also retarded. I saw that checkbox but I guess I didn't look at it close enough because I thought it was for notification (NOT!) and I didn't see the pulldown at the bottom.

That's exactly what I was looking for.

Thanks, man.
