    New reply notifications broken?

    Under "Subscribed Threads With New Posts", I don't always see all of my subscribed threads that actually have new posts.

    If I click on "List subscriptions" and look at all of my subscribed threads, I can see that there are new posts in some of them that I haven't yet viewed. But they don't all show up under "Subscribed Threads With New Posts". (Some do, but there doesn't really seem to be a pattern.) Nor do I get a notification email.

    I'm accessing "Subscribed Threads With New Posts" by clicking on Settings. Is that how I'm supposed to do it? And if so, is there a setting I need to tweak to make it work?

    Thanks

    It could be that you need to change the setting(s) for when (if any) you receive a notification for threads you have subscribed to. Have a look here: http://ubuntuforums.org/subscription.php

    The OP's settings are set to 'instant email notification' at least according to the their profile in modcp. They are also in the trusted users group.

    Have you tried setting the notification settings to instant email manually?

    How do I do that? The link that lisati posted takes me to my list of all subscribed threads, and I've poked around the various "settings" pages, but haven't found that instant email option.

    insert_clever_signature();

    When you go to http://ubuntuforums.org/subscription.php do you see check boxes on the right? If so, select the subscriptions you wish to change and then use the "Selected threads" drop-down menu to make any changes you want.

    Thanks. I've tried that, and the "subscribed threads with new posts" page *seems* to be working now, though I'm still not getting the e-mails. That isn't as much an issue, though, as I check the actual forum fairly often.

    Edit: The e-mails are working now, also.
