  • subscribed threads question

    How does it work exactly? I am getting emails notifications sometimes for such a thread. When I click on the link, in more than one instance, I see there were many other replies before and after the notification for which I was never notified. Is that the way it supposed to be? Am I am missing something? Or is it a bug? That is happening everyday from vb.org, when I am watching a thread... to find out that I missed a lot of posts.

      myself it is 2.21 but that has nothing to do with my site. I have that problem with my subscribed threads at vb.org and they have 2.26.

      the new reply notifications are sporadically

        vB.org uses the Quick Reply hack and threads are not subscribed to when you submit a reply with that hack.

          thanks smachol. I never used that quick reply feature myself. So are you telling me that if someone else uses it, I will not be getting notification on my subscribed threads? Then that will explain it all.

            No, I don't think it works quite like that although I have to say I have a lot of problems with email notifications from vb.org also. I never have problems with this forum or my own (which are essentially unhacked.)

              yes you are right. Never a problem here, but had it at a few other sites and mainly vb.org where out of the blues I will be getting notifications from long forgotten threads from last year once in a while and am not able to follow current thread. For example, a hacker has been upgrading an installed hack so many times, and I finally got a notice... by the time I got to it, there were more posts....

              on my forums which have over 100 hacks, I don't have that problem, so I thought maybe it had to do with some settings that I skipped.
