As stated in the title...over the past few months if I add a new forum to subscribed I do not see the threads listed when I click on subscribed forums.

I have checked my settings and these forums are on my list, but again the threads do not appear.

Are you saying they never show or that they don't show immediately?

Also, there are two different methods of subscribing to forums. The other method sends you notifications of new posts. Make sure you're using the method that makes them show up in the subscription list.

Are you sure you're not confusing subscribed forums with subscribed threads at some point? Word your answer carefully because when I go to my subscribed forums, I don't see threads there, either, just a list of forums.

I don't mean to be picky, just trying to find out what your problem is. So, again: where do you go and what happens?

In subscribed threads, you won't see them listed unless there is unread content. Does the forums subscription work the same way? If so, that's why you're not seeing newly subscribed forums right away.

No it doesn't, Drover. Forums show normally. But thanks.

Homepage at the top -- the third link over is Subscribed Forums. When I click that I get a list of unread threads in my previously subscribed forums (San Diego, Albuquerque, etc.) in order of the most recently posted-in threads. Over the past few months I have added more forums to my list of subscribed forums -- Las Vegas, etc. and these newly subscribed forums never have threads in the list. I know there are new posts as I go to the Las Vegas Forum and read posts there.

When I click on My Settings I see that I am, in fact, subscribed to all of the forums I want (Las Vegas for example), but the ones most recently added (over a few months) aren't having threads listed as above.

Ah, now I know what the problem is. Try edit this list here: //www.city-data.com/forum/subsc...hp?do=editlist checking the forums you'd like to see on the subscribed list. Make sure you scroll down to the bottom and click Save Changes. And when you want to subscribe to another forum, use the link that says Add to Subscribed Forums directly on the blue bar instead of the one in the forum tools.
