Optional: Use the advanced editor and additional options for other options for the forum
When a user is subscribed to a Forum it means that they will be sent email copies of every post in that Forum (posts are sent about 30 minutes after the post was first written). Users can usually choose whether or not they want to be subscribed to each Forum. However, if a teacher forces subscription on a particular Forum then this choice is taken away and everyone in the class will get email copies. This is especially useful in the Announcement forum and in Forums towards the beginning of the course.
