Turn off notifications?

Discussion started on

Hi, I've looked but I can't seem to figure out how to turn off email notifications when someone posts a reply. Thanks!

Hi, Elizabeth. Go to your Profile/Account Settings/Modify Profile/Notifications. Uncheck what you don't want and the [very important!] click Save Settings in the lower right corner.

Thanks, I didn't see that in the drop down menu. What was odd is that all posts were unchecked but the upper master box was checked. This is a recent development.

I think that happened during one of the upgrades a few days ago.

Verla put instructions on fixing it in the header right below the search box:

Notifications Instructions can be found here: https://www.scbwi.org/boards/index.php?topic=74324.new#new

It's a rotating header, though, and easy to miss if you mostly look at the New Replies/Unread Posts links at the left.

Hi, I checked my profile and I have no notifications coming to me (no boxes checked). However, I am continuing to get them.

Elizabeth, in your Profile under Modifile Profile>Notifications I changed this option: For topics and boards I've requested notification on, notify me of: to Nothing At All.

Hopefully that will fix your problem.

Did you scroll down below that setting and look to see if you have a list of topics and/or boards on a notify list, Shari? Click the box at the top of the list to mark every topic on that list. UNcheck any topics or boards if you want to receive notifications on those topics/boards. Then click the UNNOTIFY button for all those topic and/or boards. If you have more than one page of notifications, you may have to do this for each page.

No topics/boards listed...but I tried just checking the notify boxes then unchecking them and re-saving. Kind of like turning it off and then back on again, haha! So far, no email today, so maybe... :)

I made one more minor change in your profile Notifications settings, Shari. Let me know if that makes any difference.
