Title: Keep up to date with NOTIFICATIONS
Post by: BKA on 25 July, 2012, 13:01:51
In case you don't know, you can receive email notifications about new posts/threads. First, go to your forum profile:
(http://kendama.co.uk/images/Notifications/ProfileNofications.jpg)


Then you can select options:
(http://kendama.co.uk/images/Notifications/NotificationOptions.jpg)


You can also set up a notification when you start a new topic:
(http://kendama.co.uk/images/Notifications/NewTopicNotifications.jpg)


You can also choose to have notifications for a particular board....:
(http://kendama.co.uk/images/Notifications/BoardNotify.jpg)


...or a particular topic:
(http://kendama.co.uk/images/Notifications/TopicNotify.jpg)


....so you'll always know when there's something being talked about!

   I always receive two notifications for each topic. It happends just only to me? I looked for a mistake in my profile settings but I didn't' find nothing wrong.

   Any idea?

@ray That's strange. Does anyone else get this?

   Thanks for answer @BKA.

   Also I received two times the messages "ray, you have been mentioned at a post in The Kendama Forum‏ ".

I think it sometimes gets it wrong when more than one person are mentioned

I do get double notifications, but that is because I get them by mail and by taptalk. That works as expected.

   Maybe I did something wrong in my settings in Notifications and Email:

Quote
[YES] Receive forum newsletters, announcements and important notifications by email.
[YES] Turn notification on when you post or reply to a topic.
[YES] When sending notification of a reply to a topic, send the post in the email (but please do not reply to these emails).

For topics and boards I've requested notification on, notify me: [Instantly]

For topics and boards for which I have requested notification, notify me of: [Moderation only if I started the topic]

Have you used the "Notify" button on threads as well as these options?
Title: Re: Keep up to date with NOTIFICATIONS
Post by: ray on 14 October, 2015, 18:09:21
   In Additional Options... is always marked Notify me of replies. by defect. I think is marked because I marked Turn notification on when you post or reply to a topic. Isn't?

Yes, that's true. But we were wondering if you had *also* used the "Notify" button (3 to the right of "Reply")?
If not... maybe try turning off all notifications, and then adding then back one by one, to see if there is a difference.

   I have these buttons:     Reply    Add bookmark    Unnotify    Mark unread    Send this topic    Print

Okay, that makes sense - it got turned on when you replied to the topic.

Now, when you go to http://www.kendama.co.uk/forum/index.php/board,7.0.html (http://www.kendama.co.uk/forum/index.php/board,7.0.html) , does it say Notify or Unnotify?

   After clic in that link and open a new window:     New Topic    New poll    Notify    Mark Read

Okay, so you are not getting double notifications due to doubling via Boards and Topics.

Do you use Tapatalk?

   I don't, I think. I don't know what's that.
Title: Re: Keep up to date with NOTIFICATIONS
Post by: BKA on 15 October, 2015, 14:03:48
Okay, then we don't know what's happening. :-/
Can you try turning all the notifications off in your settings, and Save them.
Then try turning them on again.

   Wow, I marked all notifications in off and I received 2 emails duplicated, but now they are different; now it say "A reply has been posted to a topic you are watching by ...".

   In my "The Kendama Forum »    Profile of ray »    Notifications and Email" appear several topics in "Current Topic Notifications". Now I unsubscribed all.

   Now I imagine I won't receive nothing. But I don't understand why I received them duplicated.


   Cheers.

Maybe you were getting
1 email for being @ -ed.
1 email for a new post in a thread you were watching.

So, if you have turned off notifications, you should now get no emails for this post... ?
Title: Re: Keep up to date with NOTIFICATIONS
Post by: ray on 16 October, 2015, 20:47:34
   I received... at the moment only one...
Title: Re: Keep up to date with NOTIFICATIONS
Post by: ray on 16 October, 2015, 20:51:11
   After write the before post, this topic was automaticly added in "Current Topic Notifications".
Title: Re: Keep up to date with NOTIFICATIONS
Post by: The Void on 16 October, 2015, 20:55:59
Then you have " Turn notification on when you post or reply to a topic." ticked? That would add this topic to your Watches, which makes sense.

So, now did you get 1 or 2 emails about this post?
Title: Re: Keep up to date with NOTIFICATIONS
Post by: ray on 16 October, 2015, 21:07:08
   I received it only one time.

   No, it's not ticket but now I saw that in Additional Options... (after write a post) Notify me of replies. is ticked by default.

   So,... so? Must I tick "Notify me of replies.?
Title: Re: Keep up to date with NOTIFICATIONS
Post by: ray on 16 October, 2015, 21:33:21
   Now I received the duplicated two) emails I didn't receive before. It's very curious because I received them late but in The hour say the correct (some minutes ago)... So, I think the problem isn't in the forum, it's in my email. I gonna check and inform you. Maybe I wasted you time...  :-[
Title: Re: Keep up to date with NOTIFICATIONS
Post by: ray on 16 November, 2015, 21:28:20
   Ok, it's solved. The problem wasn't here; it was in my mail account. Sorry so much.

   If someone has a similar problem, check you mail server, alias, forwards,...
