    I don't think it can be done.

    The forum uses only session cookies. And, in addition, it seems to time them out.
    opensuse factory; KDE 4.14.0 (main desktop);
    opensuse 13.1, KDE 4.11.5 (laptop);

    sad thing - the procedure to log in and to see the threads i have written is quite a long one. This is sure not very convenient

    The forum needs a shortcut to My Threads or something, to bring up a list of all your started discussions. Currently I go to my profile & then click Find Latest Started Threads. Not too bad, but could be easier

    You could have searched this subforum. There are quite a few threads about this. Would have spared you asking and us answering.

    Best thing is to keep one loged in window on the forums (e.g on its home page) open. Then when you open a thread (from a subscription mail or an RSS feed), you are loed in allready. But since about two months, this only works for about four (4) hours (imho a few more, but less then day). Thus I have to relogin once a day.

    BTW, that relogin is a bit a strange afair. I find out that I am loged out of course when I open a window on a thread. Then I de-iconise my "allways open on the home page" window and click browser "reload". It then also shows that I am loged out. I then click login at right top. Then, surprise, I do not get the login page, but I get the home page back in loged in status!

    Am I correct in concluding that you have problems getting back to threads you are interested in?

    This might be superfluous (after all it is a normal configuration in your personal forums configuration whhich you have seen without doubt), but you can make the forums send you an e-mail when a new post is added to a thread you are subscribed to. Subscribing is either automaticaly when you post yourself or manualy when you do this using the Tools button at the top of a thread.

    I am informed about new started threads by adding the subforums I am interested in, to my RSS feed program (Akregator in my case).

    The combination of these two works fine for me.

    hello henk hello @ all

    Weighty_foe: you took the word right out of my mouth:
    PHP Code:
    "The forum needs a shortcut to My Threads or something, to bring up a list of all your started discussions. Currently I go to my profile & then click Find Latest Started Threads. Not too bad, but could be easier" 
    well thanks alot for the ideas - i will try out them... Well Usability is a great thing. And if the forum-admins / and all those who are responsible for this super-great - forum are aware of the benefits i guess that they would / could do anything to take this to the maxiumum....
    here so many supporter are doing their best - and i think it is worth to take the best forum-software that is available...

    thx to all the great supporters here: to you henk and weighty_foe, nrickert and all the others that share their knowledge, experience and of coure their valuable time!!!

    my tipp: at the admins: MAKE it as easy as possible - and make low-level-access to the great community here - thats all i can say...

    Hopefully the admins read this - and the words of Weighty_foe...

    While all members are of course encouraged to ask for improvements in all aspects of the forums, you should not forget that the forums software is a commericial product: vBulletin. While this product is adaptable in a lot of aspects (which you may see by visiting other forums on the Internet), but one is limited to the configuration possibilities offered by the manufacturer. This means that improvements, how splendid they may look, must in fact be forwarded to the manucfaturer as a hint for future implementation. There is often not much that the moderators, the administrators nor the technical staff can do.

    I.
    If you are not only interested in the threads you started but also in other ones you posted to - you could do that:

    1. Go to
    Settings
    -> General Settings
    -> Messaging & Notification:
    Default Thread Subscription Mode:
    [choose]: "Through my control panel only" (or if really interested: "instantly, using email")
    (vBulletin's description: "When you post a new thread, or reply to a topic, you can choose to automatically add that thread to your list of subscribed threads, with the option to receive email notification of new replies to that thread.")

    2. Go to
    "Settings"
    =
    http://forums.opensuse.org/usercp.php

    after or before you have logged in.

    II.
    And you could individually choose for each thread you started or are otherwise especially interested in

    Thread Tools (right above the Thread)> Subscribe > Notification Type: "Instantly notification via email"
    also possible to choose just before posting (under the text window).

    Hope it helps a bit
    Regards
    Martin
