    Unsubscribe to threads

    I can't seem to find the button that lets me unsubscribe to threads. Where is it?
    Thanks John

    Forum Action, General Settings, Subscriptions. You can choose which threads to unsubscribe from there I believe.

    It would be a make a lot more sense if I could Unsubscribe from Thread Tools - given that Thread Tools has an option to Subscribe

    ... and at other forums also running vBulletin 4.1, you can do exactly that.

    Hopefully TPTB will read this and make it available here

    Now where is it that I have to go to unsubscribe from here - aaah, yes I can go advanced and scroll down to uncheck - Subscriptions

    Thus bumping my post count :sigh:

    This is a test. I think I found something, and I did! When I clicked on "Reply to Thread" instead of using the "Post Quick Reply", I chose "Go Advanced" When I scrolled further down I saw this. Hmmmm will have to give that a go, but! that means I would have to reply to each of the threads I don't want to follow anymore

    I have my account set up so I do not subscribe to any thread. This way if I wish to subscribe to a particular thread I can Go Advanced and do so from there. Otherwise, I just check the threads with new posts.

    Not subscribing may not have the same effect as unsubscribing.

    We are running a fairly default version of vBulletin 4. I never realized the unsubscribe option wasn't available from thread tools here. It looks like something is broken perhaps, as I believe this is a default feature in vBulletin 4 - it certainly isn't something we have modified. I will try to investigate why the option is missing.

    To manage subscription en masse, you can go here:

    Place a check next to those subscriptions you wish to change, then use the dropdown menu below to modify the subscriptions to your liking.
