      Thank you! Cre8asiteforums 1998 - 2018   01/18/2018

      Internet Marketing Ninjas released many of the online forums they had acquired, such as WebmasterWorld, SEOChat, several DevShed properties and these forums back to their founders. You will notice a new user interface for Cre8asiteforums, the software was upgraded, and it was moved to a new server. Thank you for your support as we turn 20 years old.

Post Notifies - Silly Question

Recommended Posts

On getting notified via email when someone replies to a thread...

'Follow this topic checkbox, off to the right'? (under post options) will trigger email on file?

Yes. The green button that says "Follow this topic" works too.

Do you get other emails from here? Check your spam folder. You never know what triggers spam filters, especially if you have things set to strict.

You made sure you checked "Instantly" and not "weekly" or some other digest, right?

 

In the panel, that selection is next to: "Auto follow topics I reply to"

I've been mainly trying to follow topics that I started, and also others.

Selected 'immediate' now anyway.

 

I have not recevied notifications for as long as I can remember.

Well, I can confirm I received an email when test-ok posted his note above. If you don't get one from my reply now, please let me know - here - and I will put our SysAdmin on tracking down log files.

 

Thanks.

Ah ah! I noticed for the last two conversations where someone had posted after me - I also did not get an email notification as normal.

 

I have gone back into my settings just to make sure it was checked as Immediate etc.

 

I only fond out that someone had responded to a ppost when I loogged back into the Forum and looked at the "Posts I'm involved with" (something like that) link and saw that someone had posted after me on the two recent posts I contributed to.

 

Very odd?

 

Curious of England?

Yup - still happening... or not happening as the case may be.

 

Still not getting email notifications when someone responds to a post I made?

 

Irritated of Essex
