Hi,

I am having trouble figuring out the two below:

1. I don't see a 'Notify' button on any post or board. I just see options to start a new topic  and mark as read. Why is that?

2. I cannot view any member profile. The pop-up says I don't have permissions.

How may I get around these two issues?

Thanks a lot.

Nidhi, new members do not have access to member profiles after we had problems years ago with spammers accessing emails through the profiles and sending out some pretty horrid pornographic emails.  After a new member has been around for a few months and proved that s/he is a responsible poster, then things like PM privileges and the ability to view profiles become available. 

I'm not sure why you aren't seeing the notify button, though--it should be on the right-hand side of the message boxes, nest to "mark unread" and "add poll.

Thanks, Marissa.

Regarding the missing "Notify" option and possibly others, I am using Chrome. I tried to use Internet Explorer, and the two options I was seeing before also disappeared. Do I need to have any other software installed? Do you think it may have something to do with PHP?

Thanks,
Nidhi

I checked her theme, Shirley--Curve is now the default for everyone. 

Nidhi, there shouldn't be any other software you need. I'm on Internet Explorer and have no problem.  There should be a row of little gray boxes to the right of the bottom of the posts labeled "Reply", "Add Bookmark", "Add Poll", "Notify", "Mark Unread", "Send this topic" and "Print".  Are you seeing any of that?

I see the notify  button at the very bottom of a thread when I scroll all the way down. Also at the very top. Or what Marissa said, lol.

Thanks, all. Unfortunately I tried three laptops with Chrome and IE, and I still don't see all the options. Perhaps something is not right with the permissions I have?
See my attachment for the view.

ShirleyH here signing in as a new member.

The other options cannot be seen by a newbie.

Working on the problem. 

Edited to add: Still working on this. I don't think the notify button has ever really worked correctly so that may be why you can't see it.

The notify option was disabled for all board members by Verla because hundreds of emails would be automatically be sent to her.

If you want to follow a thread, just post a message in the thread. Then when you check the board again, click on new replies.
