Randy...what's the deal with email notifications? I have every kind of option to be notified checked but it says I'm not currently receiving any notifications :/ Then it says to mark the notify in a board to receive these...where is that???
I finally noticed this question here Rodney....sorry for the delay. The button it's talking about, that you have to click for notifications.....is located at the top of each topic page. But you probably couldn't find it....because I had it turned off.
I had turned off "notifications" a while back, because Greg told me he thought the forum was too complicated.....too many things to click on.....too hard to understand, etc.........so I tried to make it so easy.....even a caveman (or a Raider Greg) could do it (ha, ha)
But you're right. In everyone's profile section it gives you the option to be notified when a topic is replied to....but I had turned that off.....so you could sign up for it and still not get it.
So I just now went in and turned "notifications" back on for everyone (except GUESTS.....you have to be a registered member to get this feature). So if you want to be notified when there are replies to a certain topic, you will now see a "Notify" button at the beginning of each topic (along with REPLY and PRINT):
This should help you get the notifications. I hope it doesn't confuse others. There is information explaining this in our forum HELP section. Click on this link:http://www.raidernationpodcast.com/forum/index.php?action=help;page=index#message
and read the part about the "NOTIFY" button.
There are other ways to see when new topics and posts have occured since you last logged on. They vary a little depending on which theme you're using for the look of your forum. When you first log onto the forum....on the main page.....as you look at the list of categories......to the left of the categories there is a diamond shaped icon (on the default blue and white forum theme). Some of the other themes use a square instead of a diamond.
These shapes change color depending on whether or not there are new posts since you last logged in. These are the NEW POSTS - NO NEW POSTS icons. On most of the themes, dark means no new posts, light means new posts. On some it is the opposite. There is a key at the bottom of the list of categories that tells you this. When you click on a category and go to the page with the topics......you'll also see these indicators on the left, telling you where there are new posts since your last login. You probably already figured that out, but I thought I'd add that part in case anyone didn't know about it. For a detailed explanation in the forum HELP section, click this link:http://www.raidernationpodcast.com/forum/index.php?action=help;page=index#board
and read the section titled THE BOARD INDEX, and you'll see what I'm talking about.
Let me know if you need any more clarification or details on any of this stuff and I'll try to give you an answer or point you in the right direction.
