G'day from Oz

Postby Russellji » Wed Jan 09, 2013 8:10 am

Hello,

I am new to forums in general and came across a post on this site while investigating the similarities between Advaita Vedanta and Buddhism, and liked what I saw.

Om Shanti,

Russellji

Welcome Russel! :hi:

Hope we can be of some help to you.

What part of Australia are you from? I used to live in Melbourne for about 15 years before moving to Greece.

Thanks all for the greetings.

Greg, I am from the other side of Oz, Perth. About as far as you can get from Melbourne (Little Greece :smile: ) within Oz.

Hello again,

I have been trying to figure out how to subscribe to forums or topics. The only help I can find is:-

How do I subscribe to specific forums or topics?
To subscribe to a specific forum, click the “Subscribe forum” link upon entering the forum. To subscribe to a topic, reply to the topic with the subscribe checkbox checked or click the “Subscribe topic” link within the topic itself.


and some other posts for help from newbies, which I have tried to no avail. Can anyone please tell me how to find this subscribe checkbox. Is there an alternative to get new posts emailed to me, or a suggestion as to how to keep up with new posts to forums.

Thanks,

Russell

I've never tried to use that function. I just tried now but... :shrug:

If you post in a thread then when you press the "View your posts" button (top left hand corner) then it will show if the thread you have posted in has any new posts anyway, that way you can keep track of any thread you are interested/involved in.

The "View new posts" button below that will give you a list of all the new posts made since you last checked, whether you have posted in a thread or not.

The View New Posts function is great. It's the only way I access the forum these days.
