    On the forum page there are listed several different sub categories like Video tutorials, Welcome center, Woodturning forum etc.. How do I set up getting notifications for all new postings in sub categories? Is that possible? Thanks

    When your in the Forum you should see your name in the top right hand corner (name, Inbox, Alerts)
    When you hover over your name a drop down box should appear. Click on Alert Preferences. From that window check all the options you want. Then hit SAVE at the bottom of the screen.

    I have all of the boxes checked.

    I have all the boxes checked. What I'm trying to figure out is when someone post to any forum like video tutorials or woodturners forum etc that I can get a notification. What I'm doing now is opening each forum category and then looking to see if there are new post that might be of interest to me. It seems that the post are hooked to threads. I may not be explaining it right.

    When you click on a specific thread when it opens you will see a "Watch Thread" on the right side. from there you can select the type of alert you would like. You may have to do that for the threads that you want to follow but there is not that many to set up. Hope that helps.

    Thanks. I can get notifications for a thread in a forum. What I want to find out is if I can get a notification every time anybody post in the woodturners etc forum without having to follow each thread.
