Unwanted Notifications

Post by PeteThePen1 » Wed May 12, 2021 12:59 pm

Hi Folks

I wonder if the problem I am now having is affecting anybody else. I keep getting notifications from the site of new posts as if I had chosen to follow the particular topic. However, I have never, so far as I recall, ever set that particular option. I have had several attempts to 'un-set' it but that does not seem possible if it has not been set in the first place.

The latest one is for "Ashton Valve Co. 1871" but I have seldom looked at and certainly never followed that thread.

I would welcome any thoughts on the issue.

Regards

Pete

Pete:
To modify Notifications, from the main page:
- Select the "bell" symbol,
-Then click on "Settings",
-And you will be a the Notifications control page and can un-click options.

At least that's how my Forum display works.
Hope that helps.

Hi Russ

Many thanks for that. I have indeed found what you suggest and have now made some changes. Hope that they are the right ones!

Best wishes

Where can I find this "BELL" symbol ?

On my display that "bell" symbol is immediately to the left of the LogOut symbol, top right of the page.
