I like the feature to be notified when someone replys to a post. I have only seen that option once. (On the new user post) Am I just missing it or is that the only place with that option? I think especially on new posts, (when you are looking for an answer) it would be nice to have a note telling you that someone had a response. But it would be nice in general too. Ex. For your replies to posts. That way, you can see what others have to say about what you said!

Thanks for any info on this.

P.S. Sorry if this has been asked or answered before. Sorrier if the option already exists, and I have just missed it thus far.

I believe the correct answer is that you can only get replies to posts if you are the one who created the topic. So you should get a reply from anyone who answers this (if you set the option correctly).

Although it would be really helpful, what Jason said. So you have better control, if there has been an answer to your post - especially for user who post often...

Just a thought Smile

Nice idea, but unless it's already built in to this php board, that would be a pretty big effort. Major database changes and the writing of triggers(best solution?). These guys are doing a hell of job here with little or no funding. We can live without that feature, but it would be convientent for some.
It takes a big man to cry...... but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

For small boards, that wouldn't be a bad option to have, but with almost 2800 members on this board, can you imagine the load that would put on the server if only half of them wanted to get email notification of replies to several of their topics? The server would be using a ton of resources just to email out all those replies, and on the SQL queries needed to address the replies. All of which would slow down this as well as the other websites on the server. We decided to keep the option the way it is, primarily for that reason, and partly for the reason Nae Blis mentioned, it's a lot of coding to do for a questionable return.
