Click on the Forum title, e.g. on the "Forums by Category" page, to read a sequence of postings to the Forum and its threads all in one page. If you are only interested in one thread or the thread following a specific posting, click the thread or the posting, which takes you to a smaller page, which contains only the part you are interested in and may be easier to navigate.
Messages are "chained" if there are only replies at the first level, i.e. 1/1.html, 1/1/1.html etc. In case of "chained" messages the message number is replaced by the icon and there is no indentation.
Inline: Display the subject line only or also the text of the posting(s); for the choice "All" the "Outline" choices are switched off.
|1||0||1||no text / full text of posting|
|2||1||All||text for level 1 only / text for All postings|
Outline: Choose the depth of the posting thread, successive toggle controls provide increasing detail.
|1||2||1||2 levels / 1 level (original posting)|
|2||3||2||3 levels / 2 levels|
|3||3||All||3 levels / all levels (all postings)|
Hi Devin, When a non-member posts a message to a forum, the poster will be subscribed to that particular thread, but not to the forum. He/she will get a copy to the responses to this thread only. I think the rationale is that since a site's configuration allows non-member to post message, the poster should also be able to see the response to the message he posted. But the non-member poster shouldn't be added to the subscription list, and the poster can't add himself or herself to the subscription list since he/she is not a member. I just tested this mechanism by posting a message to a forum from a non-member and the poster's email is not added to the subscription list. Maybe I missed the difference between 'forum' and 'mailing list' in this context. Does the 'mailing list' here means using a forum's subscription list to be a list with which all messages to this forum are to be distributed? Or does it mean something else? regards, -- Terry Hung - Stanford Linear Accelerator Center phone: 650-926-3618 e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org > > *** Discussion title: Hypernews Feedback/Problems > > Hello, > > Is there any way to configure defaultNotification on a per-forum > basis?
