NOT GETTING NOTIFICATIONS

Postby patricia » Wed Jun 07, 2017 12:32 pm

I am still not being notified when someone posts a comment in a thread that I have started or have made a comment on someones thread. Also I cannot send private messages. I have tried twice to sent a message to Sid but there is no record of any PM´s being sent. :thumbdown:

I looked through the settings and I cannot see what I need to change, it all looks in order! :x

When you create a new message and use the "Full Editor & Preview" function you can tick the "Notify me when a reply is posted" box. :thumbup:
You will then get notifications of replies to your message.
To follow another thread, in which you might not have posted, click on your name in the top right hand corner, select "User Control Panel",choose the tab 'Board Preferences' choose 'Edit Notifications options' - then choose what you want to be notified about.

It took me longer to type this reply than actually set up the notifications.

Cheers
Gerry

To add to Gerry's Post.
When you send a PM it will sit in your Outbox until the intended recipient reads it.

Have you room in your Inbox :?: ..........they upped it from 100 to 500 so you should be ok.

Gerry I have always received notifications on threads that I have started and also where I have posted. What has changed so that I now do not receive notifications.

Are you saying that now all of a sudden I have to ASK to be notified! I

I am sorry but I have not the faintest idea how to go about getting notifications. All it say is that here are your notifications, it doesnt tell me to click or whatever to receive notifications!

I have looked at all the ticks in the notifications and they are all fine! What I am saying is that despite there being no change and it saying that I will be notified I am not being notified! So that is the puzzle I am trying to work out!

I am no longer getting any notifications either, despite having changed nothing and having checked that my account is set to receive notifications on all threads I post on. It's not you, Patricia. Something's broken

That is what I thought. Something is work right.

Everything is as it was before ie boxes are ticked and yes it has the correct email address. I do not know why that would change. I was getting notifications up until a week or so ago. So there is something wrong on the thread.


Where are the experts! :idea:

Hi patricia,

I'm confused by..........." Also I cannot send PM´s!"

I received your PM yesterday, there was also an Email notification, and as I had Posted in this Thread , when I Login I see Notification that you have Quoted on the Thread.........so it all looks to be working OK.

What to do .......... :?:

Clear Browser Cache and Temporary Files by running CCleaner, reboot system and report back.

I've been using various devices and internet connections (currently on a mobile somewhere off the coast of Brittany!)
Nothing I do will get me those email notifications of updated threads.

Hi Miro,
Good to hear that you're having a pleasant trip back on the high seas via Brittany Ferries . Some sites tend not to work too well on the Free WiFi that they provide.

I'm sorry not to be able to greet you on your arrival at Portsmouth, but my chums in Blue at Boarder Control will..... :D

Well I am just testing with this one as I am still not getting notifications so am following Gerry´s instructions to see if that works.

Yes well I can see that the the box which ways "notify me when a reply is posted" is ticked, so there is something wrong with the system so can someone sort it out please! :wave:

As I said before, I am receiving notifications OK.
Just received email notifications on my smartphone and my desktop PC as a result of your posting at 2:54 PM
So I do not believe that there generally "something wrong with the system"
