How do I enable board/topic/private message notification?
« on: February 14, 2011, 09:50:46 pm »
If you'd like to be notified via email whenever someone posts to a forum, you have to turn it on for each forum that you wish to be notified about.  In order to do so, click on the forum you wish to be notified about.  In the upper right, you will see a NOTIFY button.  Click that to enable notification.  Click it a second time to disable notification.  This will let you know of a new topic being posted.

Please note though that it will only send one notification until you sign on and review what has been posted.  To clarify, if there are 5 topics started, you will receive one notice of the first topic.  You will not get notices for the other ones unless you are reading the forum between each of those postings.

You can also ask to be notified of any replies on a given topic.  In order to do so, click on the topic you wish to be notified about.  In the upper right, you will see a NOTIFY button.  Click that to enable notification.  Click it a second time to disable notification.  This will let you know of a new reply being posted on that topic.

You can also go into your profile settings to review everything you have put on notify.  This allows you one place to manage all notifications.  To do this, click on Profile button in the upper left.  This will pull up your profile.  In the second left-hand column, you will see a link for Notifications and Email.  Click this link to go in an manage your notifications easily.

If you would like to be notified of any private messages sent to you via email, go again into your Profile.  In the second left-hand column, click on the link for Personal Message Options.  You will see the setting for Notify by email every time you receive a personal message:.  This has the options of "Always" or "Never".  Set it according to your preference.

Setting up notifications will allow you to keep up with the forums easily.  Make it a point to setup notification on the Events forums so that you know when a new event has been added.  :)
