Thread: Thread subscriptions not showing notifications?

    Default Thread subscriptions not showing notifications?

    Total n00b question but where do notifications show up for thread subscriptions? I’ve been spoiled by the XenForo forums “just working” while I’ve forgotten how to get things done in vBulletin. I’ll search around as well but wondered if I was missing something really obvious. Thanks!

    When you subscribe to a thread you can select if you want the notifications to appear in your control panel or to be sent to you via email. You can change the settings I believe for specific threads in your Settings area as well.

    When subscribing through the control panel shouldn’t updates appear in the notifications drop down?

    Or is that only for inbox messages and I have to manually go to subscriptions and check them manually?

    Yes I believe you have that right in your second sentence. If you click on Settings at the top, the default screen is Subscribed Threads With New Posts, with all the other settings tabs on the left of the screen.

    The Notifications Drop Down only works for PMs.
    Subscribed threads are accessed via the Settings button.
    I have a locked tab on my browser that reloads my Settings Page every 5 minutes.
    That way you can see the newly updated threads whenever you want.

    Yes, it is probably time for that too. ^^ I use the app also and I notice it doesn’t always keep accurate track of my last read posts so it’s easy to miss new posts at times.
