How-To: Email Notifications - FAQ and Directions

Postby hennesse » Tue Jul 01, 2014 1:09 am

The harleyKmodel Forum system is set up specifically for a small group like ours. Every time a new message is posted in any of the Forums, each member will receive an email notification. You don’t have to do anything – it’s already set up that way for you.

This is appropriate for our group – only a few messages are posted each week, and most of us are interested in just about anything to do with the Ks and early XLs.
But everybody’s different. The email notifications can be configured to any taste. Scroll down and find exactly what you want to do.

I DO NOT WANT TO GET AN EMAIL WHENEVER ANY NEW MESSAGE IS POSTED
1. Click “User Control Panel” (near the top left corner of the screen)
2. Click “Board Preferences” (in the horizontal menu)
3. Click “Edit post notification options” (in the vertical menu)
4. Answer “No” to the first question
5. Answer “Yes but only…” to the second question
6. Answer “Yes but only…” to the third question
7. Click “Submit”

Now the only time you will get an email is if someone responds to a message you have posted.


I DO NOT WANT TO GET AN EMAIL WHEN SOMEONE RESPONDS TO MY MESSAGE

Normally, you asked a question, and are interested in hearing the answers. But if not, there are two ways to do this:

A) Turn it off only for this particular message
When you are posting a message:
1. Look at the section marked “Options”
2. Uncheck “Notify me when a reply is posted”

B) Turn it off for all future messages
1. Click “User Control Panel” (near the top left corner of the screen)
2. Click “Board Preferences” (in the horizontal menu)
3. Click “Edit posting defaults” (in the vertical menu)
4. Answer “No” to “Notify me on replies by default”
5. Click “Submit”


I WANT TO RECEIVE AN EMAIL ONLY WHEN A MESSAGE IS POSTED IN THE “K, KK, KH, KHK” FORUM
Many messages really apply to multiple forums. And sometimes people pick the wrong forum. You might miss some good ones. But here's how to do it:

1. Enter the “K, KK, KH, KHK” forum
2. Click “Subscribe forum” (down at the very bottom, left side)
You also can unsubscribe from this forum in a similar fashion


I WANT TO RECEIVE AN EMAIL ONLY FOR REPLIES IN A PARTICULAR TOPIC
1. Enter the particular topic
2. Click “Subscribe topic” (down at the very bottom, left side)
You can also unsubscribe from this topic in a similar fashion


CAN I UNSUBSCRIBE FROM MULTIPLE FORUMS / TOPICS IN A SINGLE PLACE?
1. Click “User Control Panel” (near the top left corner of the screen)
2. Click “Manage subscriptions” (in the vertical menu)
3. Click the “Mark” box next to any/all of the forums/topics listed
4. Click “Unwatch marked” (near the bottom at the right)


HELP – I’M STILL GETTING EMAILS EVEN THOUGH I TURNED EVERYTHING OFF
Contact one of the administrators. We’re here to help.
1. Click “The Team” (down at very bottom, right side)
2. Click on someone’s name under “Administrators”
3. Click on either the e-mail link, or the PM link.
4. Tell us your username and problem.
