from FAQ "To subscribe to a topic, reply to the topic with the subscribe checkbox checked or click the “Subscribe topic” link within the topic itself."
I have been unable to see this button. Where on the page is it?

Works, yes. Bottom right.
Looks like a sheet of paper with a check mark on it.
Once subscribed, the check will turn into an X.
Click again to unsubscribe.

Thanks. I have now Bookmarked my first thread. The Subscribed button creates a notification, which I didn't really want.

The notifications are one of the primary functions of the subscribe button. They let you know when a thread you are following but have not posted in is updated. if you do not want notifications I would say that subscribing is not what you want to do.

Rob, you have been on forums before, haven't you? Even the ones you've been banned from. This is how all thread/section subscriptions work.

Not quite each one has a different symbol. I got it working now thanks.

I don't see why I should be instructing you in how to use a computer but . . .

. . . most browsers (I use FireFox) or background OS allow you to "hover" over a button with the mouse cursor to see what it's function is. Are you aware of this?

I must have stopped looking at the level of the yellow hatched line. In the FAQ I think they should add in where on the page the button is found and describe the icon.
Now that things have settled a bit I'll go through the FAQ list and learn how to use the forum better.
