Watch this thread / Email Notifications" checked by default?

Hi guys!

Question: How do I configure it so that "Watch this thread" and "receive email notifications" are both checked by default, on all posts?

I did a search but didn't find this posted in the community.
(Please feel free to link me to an existing thread if there is one.)

Gracias!!!

In your admin control panel, for user registrations, enable the default option of watching a thread.

Admin CP -> Options -> User Registration -> Watch threads when creating or replying: [Select the option you would like in the drop down box] -> Save.

This works for new users, but I don't think it impacts users that are already registered.

Thanks, guys!

You hit the nail on the head.

I actually had that default checked to "YES with email"... but it wasn't working for me.
But perhaps it will work for all subsequent users (I'm the only user in the forum right now.)

I figure this is a key default setting to drive more traffic to the forum.



Thanks!
