Hi,

I had some "forums" subscribed for a few games. I can't work out how to do this with the new interface. Can someone help?

Also, when I am subscribed to a game, which setting is it to avoid seeing when that game is tagged? Because it is really spamming my news feed.

Cheers!

In the game screen, there is a button "Subscribe". Click on It.




Sometimes It wil take some time to show "Edit Subscriptions" when you click in the small arrow.



If you want to subscribe by Subforum (Rules, Reviews) for a specific game, there is a button in the bottom of the screen when you click on a specific forum:



If you r looking for this page:




The only way to reach it (that I know) is to go to the game page and replace the word "boardgame" by forums/thing

Example: Url for Legacy: TTDC:
https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/52461/legacy-testament-duke-de-crecy

The old page:
https://boardgamegeek.com/forums/thing/52461/legacy-testament-duke-de-crecy

Thanks, that's cool. I think I prefer to only be subscribed to a subset of the forums anyway.

I found another way to get to the list of subforums: click on any forum post for that game, then click the link [game name] >> Forums.

Meta-tip (useful for many websites, not just BGG):

Use the text search feature of your browser, e.g. control-F or whatever (in this case, search for the text "subscribe" to immediately find the "subscribe" link on a game's page) to easily answer such questions in many cases.

There is another way - click on forums in the new UI, click on an item within the forums (any item, doesn't matter which), then click on the forum header link you see next to the thread thumb box.
