    What is wrong with getting alerts? I make a post and it is liked (or what ever) and it does not show up. An example

    upload_2018-3-1_21-0-51.png

    Here are ALL my Alerts for TODAY, but this one post has 5 Likes and 3 Agrees that are not there, What Gives?

    Could Someone Look at this and see what is wrong?

    Thank You...

    Try resetting your alert preferences.

    You get one alert and one only, regardless of how many times someone likes it.

    Once you read the post, it resets and you'll then get another alert when someone likes it. Again, just one alert, regardless of how many times it's liked until you read it again.

    Well that is not how it used to work :(
    I guess every time they update the board, they change/break something. :facepalm:

    Since the switch to XF, it's always been like that. You get one alert per item until you view it. This is so there isn't a flood of emails for those that have selected that method of notification.

    I get Multiple Alerts on the same post when it is Liked by different members. But I don't always get All the Alerts from all the Posts that were liked.

    BTW - Today the Alerts are Very Easy to read. Because they are in like a 64pt Font.

    LOL
