Not getting notificaltions

Postby Carol S » Sat Feb 11, 2012 10:42 am

I subscribed several weeks ago to many of the topics. I had received notifications for awhile, then nothing for a long time. I just reviewed the topics and the subscribe button in checked. What is wrong? My e mail is ********@gmail.com. Before it had been *********@umn.edu, which still is an active account. Nothing has come to either.

Carol

I've updated your settings so you should now get daily digest emails sent to you at 11:00pm. Let me know if you don't get them for some reason.

To update your digest preferences, click this link: Manage Email Digests

I did not sign up for daily digests, just certain topics live, as there are postings to that area.I never got those notifications. However I did get you reply above.

It looks like you are subscribed only to specific topics, and not any of the various forums. If you were notified of my earlier reply to this topic, than I think your email address & topic notification is working OK. You'll only get emails from a subscribed topic if someone posts something new to that topic.

To subscribe to a specific forum, click the “Subscribe forum” link upon entering the forum. This will notify you whenever any topics are added to that forum.

To subscribe to a topic, click the “Subscribe topic” link within the topic itself or reply to the topic and check the "Notify me when a reply is posted" checkbox.


To see view your current subscriptions go to:
User Control Panel -> Overview -> Manage Subscriptions

Hope this helps!

It is not working. I looked at the other subjects I signed up for and I am not getting the notifications. There were several from today even, that I did not receive. I only have received yours.

You'll only receive one subscription notification that someone has replied until you re-visit that topic. You won't get a subscription notification for every reply, which may be what you are expecting? It works this way so your email inbox doesn't fill up with notifications from a popular topic with many postings.

I just figured out something. Even though at the bottom of the page the subscribe forum/topic box is checked you are not really subscribed. You have to click on the words subscribe forum/topic then you get subscribed. Then a box with an x appears with the words Unsubscribe topic/forum. Perhaps there is hopel

I thought the same thing--that the check mark meant I was subscribed. I changed them all now, so I think we'll be good. Thanks! :oops:

I noticed that I have not been receiving notifications lately. The last notification I received was back in May. Does anyone have any ideas?

Make sure you mark the forums as read. Otherwise you will not get further notifications.

Thanks Carol. I have marked the forums as read and made sure I'm subscribed to the forums I wanted. Hopefully that will work.
