Can't see the Email option there.
If you go to the alert preferences and then click on contact details on the left hand side menu there is a tick box for:
I think email alerts for threads may be turned off in the options, if you want me to look into those further just say and I'll delve into those settings.
Ah OK. Thanks.
Is Email notification "on" the Default?
For private messages they are on by default.
(Or so I believe. They were off for me on the previous forum engine, and now they are on for me.)
Is there a forum option for font size? Seems to be a lot larger then the old forum.
(And I mean overall, not when making a post.)
I don't think there is an individual one for each user personally just one I can set for the whole forum. There is a push for larger font sizes across the web now with higher resolution displays and people using mobile devices. You can always use your browser site zoom if you want to make it smaller (hold down control and scroll your mouse wheel down, control+0 resets to default zoom), likewise anyone want to make it bigger just scroll up instead of down.
Had a quick look about making the chat box minimisable but not had a chance to actually try and implement it yet, but it looks like it is something I can probably do.
You should be able to collapse it now, along with any of the forum sections as well.
Great feature, thanks Coach
Minor nitpick, but the collapse button is pretty hard to see with the green grass background.
Yeah I realised that but decided it wasn't really an issue. Not sure many people use it and I'd rather they used the whole forum, but it's there if they want it! If enough people chime in wanting it more visible then I'll look at making some adjustments. Thanks for the feedback.
The collapse button is fine for me.
Still got a problem with the Email notification though...as in i'm not recieving a notification. The box is ticked so should work.
Anybody else recieved a notification?
Yes I get them
Sorry if this has been covered previously - I can't see when a particular post was made, am I being blind?
Lower left corner?
I have received emails when I am included in a private conversation.
I just checked your account and you are correct in that it is selected to email you when you get a message. The only things I could think it would be is that either your email address on your account is wrong, or your email client/provider is perhaps blocking the emails. Myself and others appear to be getting the emails fine which would suggest it isn't likely an issue this end (though you never know which is why I went in and checked your account preferences).
Now about those fancy badges....and the missing articles....
Work in progress but not forgotten!
