How to Subscribe to New Content

If you want, you can be sent an e-mail when new content is posted to the website.  This system is free, private and safe.

How to subscribe to notifications about new content

You can subscribe to certain content types such as Event, Article, Notice Board, Advert, Forum Topic, and the KAS Canary, and you have the option to receive an e-mail when a specific post is updated or new comment added to it.

During the process of activating a subscription you have the option of choosing to receive an e-mail immediately or as a weekly digest.

Establishing Your Subscription(s)

To establish your subscription:

  1. Make sure you are logged in.
  2. Click on the My account link in the menu next to your User Name.
  3. Click on the 'Notifications' tab. 
  4. Click on the 'Content type' tab to subscribe to certain content type.

For example, to receive an e-mail whenever someone adds a new event to the calendar, tick the box next to the 'Event' type and click the Save button.

Changing and Managing Your Subscriptions

To review and manage all your subscriptions go to the 'My account' page and click on the 'Notifications' tab.  Click on the 'Subscriptions' tab to deactivate or delete any of your subscriptions. On this page you are able to change all your curent subscriptions. If you only want to change a particular subscription, then see below:

Other Ways of Managing Your Subscriptions
