Post Notifications

I'd like to be able to get notifications to all responses to my subscribed threads, not just when mentioned or quoted. I would use my email, but it has enough junk already.

I'd like to be able to customize notifications, being able to choose what and what not to get notifications for.

I'd like the option to get notifications when my post is liked, or when a post in a subscribed thread is liked. If you don't add notification customization, though, I would not like this to be added.

I'd like to have an option to automatically follow the threads I post, and content I post in.

Hey there

For notifications on site, they will show up just under the navbar in a drop down menu:

If you have no notifications, that will just be a link to your Private Messages.

To auto-subscribe to threads you post or reply to, you can adjust your settings here: https://www.veggieboards.com/forum/pr...do=editoptions If you only want to see them on site (not in your email), choose No Email Notification.

Your Subscriptions notifications on site is right beside the drop down Notifications (you'll see the link 'Subscriptions'). If you have replies to threads you are subscribed to, a number will appear next to it to indicate how many threads have activity on them. Clicking on it will open the page that lists all your subscribed threads so you can see what has new posts.

You can turn on and off Notifications for Likes in your settings as well. It's about half way down, just above Thread Display Options.

I think that covers what you are looking for. Let us know if there is something else. Note, if you are on mobile, you'll have to switch over to Desktop view to access all the options and settings.

Yea, but they don't give you a notification for responses to subscribed threads that don't include quotes or mentions. For example, I didn't get a notification to your response to the 10 Post/24 Hour Rule thread. I had to check the subscribed threads page for new posts. This can work for now, but there will be a time when I have too many subscribed threads to go through all of them. Another possibility is that threads with new posts go to the top.

Thanks! How do you get to that page manually (referring to https://www.veggieboards.com/forum/10...do=editoptions)? EDIT: I found out. I thought I had gone through all my settings. I guess not.

I am not sure this will work as I haven't tried it...

Go on Tools > User CP. Then on the left side in the Control Panel section, there is a subscribed threads subsection. Click on list subscriptions, then checkmark the threads you want to receive notifications for.

Hey there

What didn't work? Are you getting email notifications when you don't want to? Or are you not seeing the red number beside the Subscription link when there is a reply?

For subscribed threads, there will not be any link under the 'Notifications' drop down. It will only be the number next to the Subscriptions link. You will have to visit that page, and they will be listed in order of last response.

The red number never seems to show up here. http://prntscr.com/dhikbi

So will the things in the subscription panel have all the threads with the new replies on top? Because sometimes it doesn't seem to be that way.

Also, the quote below doesn't seem to work, oddly enough.

Think something is not working with the alert icon. Getting the same behaviour after some tests on my end. Sending a ticket in to the tech team.

Notification is back up next to subscriptions. It's not lit up, but the number is there.
