    How to unsubscribe from threads?

    Is there an easy way to unsubscribe from all 2100+ threads I am subscribed to?

    I tried removing Subscriptions folder. It didn't work.
    I renamed it, then removed. It just changed its name back to "Subscriptions"

    Its not the simplest way but if you list all your subscriptions, check the checkbox top right of the list and choose the Unsubscribe option in the pulldown at the bottom.

    In Your control panel hit "view all subscribed threads" (WOW! That's a lot of threads ). Then click the "notifications box". All your threads should get a checkmark. At the bottom of the page - I think you'll have to scroll for a bit to find it! - there's a drop down list with choices. One of them is "Delete Subscriptions". Click the "go" button and the job should be done!

    I'm guessing that the reason you cannot delete the "Subscriptions" folder is because it works as the default folder for all subscriptions, pretty much in the same way the "Inbox" folder works for email accounts.

    bigsi, that link lists threads from all folders, not all threads in one page.

    In your next 'new reply' email notification, you should see something like this...

    To unsubscribe from ALL threads, please visit this page:
    http://www.sitepoint.com.au/forums/s...n&folderid=all

    Just click on that

    That is the same link bigsi gave.

    Anyway, the problem is solved. http://www.sitepoint.com/forums/subs...ost&order=desc lists 200 threads in a page. Even if you change the "pp=200" part it will not list more than 200. And when you unsubscribe from all 200 in one page, it will load next page with 40 only. I unsubscribed from all by visiting that link 11 times.
