Automatic Link to Subscribe to a forum
Hi:

Been thinking it would be nice to add a link that would automatically subscribe a user to the forum they are in. Specifically, we have a "News" forum that I think would get a LOT of subscribers, if I could easily make it subscribable (I have a feeling a lot of users are unaware of subscriptions!)

Anyway, I looked into the code on the user subscriptions page, and I came up with this link:

<A HREF="
http://forum.bcdb.com/gforum.cgi?subscribe=18&do=user_profile_email_change&next_do=user_profile">Subscribe</A> to <B>BCDB News</B>

Obviously, "18" is the forum number of my "News" forum. And the above link works fine (though I think it works better if you use an "if" statement to only show it to users)

The problem is that if a user is subscribed to any other forums, it erases those subscriptions, and the user is ONLY subscribed to 18.

Any ideas how to modify thie above link so it ADDS the subscription to 18 rather than changes all subscriptions to JUST 18?

Thanks!

PS: f I get this working, I will probably add a dynamic "Subscribe to this forum" to all forums- probably a nice option for many of us!
