1. Hey Guest, welcome back to DLP

    As you can see, we've changed our look. We've migrated from vBulletin to the Xenforo forum system. There may be issues or missing functionality, if you find anything or have feedback, please check out the new Xenforo Migration Feedback forum.

    Our dark ("Dark Lord Potter") theme is under heavy development. We also have a light ("Light Lord Potter") theme for those happier with a light background and darker text.

    Hello all,
    I'm Abcea, one of the muggles that enter the forum from time to time, :)
    The forum's great so far, but one small problem:
    Since I'm a totally blind guy, I'm using a screenreader(NVDA to be exact) to brows the forum.
    However, the only thing that I can't seem to do is subscribe to threads, which is a feature that is always helpful to have for obvious reasons.
    I'm not sure why this is, I just can't seem to see the link, so am wondering if it is hidden in a submenu of some kind.
    Perhaps it is the forum interface that I am using(classic DLP), so am not sure if there is a better one that works with screen readers, although this one does work quite well.
    Thanks for any help,

    Abcea

    Uh, well.

    The Subscribe option is at the top of the thread under 'Thread Tools' It's a drop down menu link. 'Subscribe to this thread' is the third option down.

    tbh, I've not used the subscribe feature on DLP in a long while. I just use the New Posts link every few hours and I can usually keep up with the threads I'm interested in. I suppose that might not be an option for people with less free time than myself.

    You could probably ask Tommy for some tips on navigating DLP though, iirc he's blind as well.

    Edit: Seems like he's not been on in about a month though.

    Hi both,
    Thanks for the replies, the reason that I couldn't see it is because it was hidden in the thread tools dropdown menu...
    Got it fixed now.
    Thanks,
