How to "watch" a sub-forum

Hi,

I'd like to get notifications of new posts in the for sale forum. How do I do that?

Jalfrezi,
In the For Sale thread, go to tools/subscribe topic (Spanner Icon near top left) and click the 'tick'. You will then be subscribed to posts within that thread and will receive emails every time someone posts.

Thanks. Although that is just per thread I think. I'd like to watch a sub-forum, rather than a thread.

Not sure what a sub-forum is.

They're looking to get notified every time a new thread is posted in the "for sale" section

I believe you posted about how to get notifications about new posts in a thread, rather than new threads in a forum?
