How to subscribe to topics and posts in the customization data base

Post by HaioPaio »

Very often, there are interesting questions posted in the Discussion/Support Tab of Extensions or Styles in the customization database.
Even when I had posted there, the posts will not be displayed under Quick links "Your posts". I'm not receiving notifications to answers to any of my posts there. I do not know how to subscribe to one of the topics in that area.
Did I search from the wrong end?

You can subscribe to topics/forum in the usual way by clicking on "Subscribe" in the appropriate place.

The CDB is not totally integrated with the main board which is why your posts do not appear under "Your posts"

I'm afraid the problem is not solved.
Like David wrote, it is possible to subscribe to the contribution details of an extension in the database. This notifies me when new revisions come out.
However, the tab for Discussion/Support is not subscribed by subscribing to the contribution details.
I do not receive any notification when new posts are made in this section.
The same is true for Customisation Database - All support topics.

I was not able to find any mechanism to get notifications in this important area.

I support the position that phpBB core should remain slim and extensions should provide additional non trivial functionality. This means that posts regarding extensions in the CBD are vital informations and are important to many of phpBB admins.

If there is a better place somewhere to discuss this issue, please let me know.

When you visit the support section of a style/extension at the bottom navbar there is this

Matt

I must have been blind and feel a bit embarrassed. Thanks for helping.

This narrows down the issue to "how to subscribe to https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/support/extension".

Is there as well a hidden mechanism which activates automatically after somebody explains me how to do it?
Anyhow, allow me the question. How is ist done there?
