Subscribe forum option could be more intuitive

Post by phpbbX »

I have seen that the TICKED "Subscribe forum" means that I am NOT subscribed. Clicking it removes such tick and shows unticked "Unsubscribe forum". Then "User Control Panel - Overview - Manage subscriptions" shows such thread as subscribed. Sorry about such confusion on my side, yet such interface (tick on "Subscribe forum") seems anti-intuitive to me and actually fooled me. It is my suggestion to change the TICKED "Subscribe forum" by an UNTICKED one to mean that subscription is NOT active. That is a suggestion for the admins here.

I agree (and have brought this up before) having the "Subscribe" check box ticked implies you are already subscribed.

Personally I think it’s awkward the way it is. I’d prefer two radio buttons (yes/no) or something similar so you can see exactly what’s going on at first glance.

Would this not be better addressed as a Bug Ticket - if it has not already been reported that way?

That's a FontAwesome iconfa-check-square-o to be switched to fa-square-o and vice-et-versa, that should do. Not tried.

I'm bumping this as I think this needs more attention.
