Subscribing to forum does not subscribe to all topics in forum

  • triemann


    Hi there

    WordPress 4.9.8
    bbPress 2.5.14

    Sadly the URL is not able to be live at this time but I believe my question is actually more on the basic side of things.

    When I register for an account on my website that uses bbPress all works well. I can login and subscribe to a forum. If someone creates a new topic in that forum I get a notification letting me know. However I’m noticing that if someone answers a topic in the forum I’m subscribed to I don’t get the notification.

    I figured that if you’re subscribed to a Forum, that I would get notifications of replies on any topics in that forum. From what I can tell it looks like I only get a notification on new topic created.

    Do I need to subscribe to the forum as well as all the topics if I want to be notified of anything happening under that forum?

    subscribing to a forum just gets you notifications of new topics, you then need to subscribe to the topic to get replies.

    This plugin changes that so you are automatically subscribed.

    Terrific. That’s great. Thanks so much. Worked like a charm.
