    I see on other Xenforo forums, that when I post on a thread, I always get an alert when someone else post on the same thread. On my own xenforo forum, how can I set it so the default for all my users is the same?

    I think you want the default watch state preference. That's a user preference:


    You can run this query to set those two checkboxes for all current users:

    UPDATE xf_user_option
    SET default_watch_state = 'watch_no_email'
    You can set the default for new registrations in your:

    Admin CP -> Home -> Options -> User Registration -> Default Registration Values

    And here is a query if you want to retroactively watch all existing threads:
