How to manage your notifications

Receive alerts for content on NamePros
  1. Enable: Automatically watch threads that you create or when you reply
  2. At the top of each forum, the Watch Forum option will generate a new alert/email every time a new thread/message is posted in that particular forum.
  3. At the top of each thread, the Watch Thread option will only generate a new alert/email for the first new message and it won't send another alert/email until you've viewed the thread. Therefore, all posts in-between the first new post and the time you view the thread will not generate an alert/email. However, it will if you use the Watch Forum feature with the "New Messages" setting.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
  • Why do I sometimes not receive alerts when new posts have been posted to threads that I'm subscribed to ("watching")?
    • Answer: You'll only receive one alert from a watched thread until you view all new posts in that thread. If you haven't viewed all of the new posts in a thread since you received an alert, you won't receive any further alerts about the thread until you do.
    • Solution 1: Visit the last page of the content and scroll down to the last (newest) post. This will consider it "read" and you will be notified of new posts.
    • Solution 2: An easy way to get caught up on all unread posts is to click Mark All Read on the home page under the "Home" tab. This will cause notifications to begin coming in again.
    • Solution 3: You can also re-watch ("Unwatch" and then select "Watch" again) the content that you are not being notified about (not receiving alerts). Similar to Solution 2, this will notify you of anything new that is posted after you've clicked "Watch."
