Rockwallaby, Nick knows what he is doing and saying! Granted yours is reasonably readable, but I have had worse too, same as Nick.

Yes, I know, did I write anywhere that suggested otherwise?

But clearly that email does NOT contain the quoted message of the reply which is what we are complaining about with embedded html.......

I removed the email, since neither code nor quote tags faithfully represent the email I received.




I find it much easier now to have one tab open to my 'Profile | Settings | Watched Topics', and just refresh that from time to time. It works a treat, really  :)
That's good, I'll use that, but it only shows you responses to threads you have already posted to, is there any way to get all new posts from selected boards like we used to have?

Graham, what I am highlighting is that I don't get the actual post included in my email, which for me is my preference anyhow. I just want to the notfication of a new post and I will see it when I either click on the link in the email or switch to the already open tab.

The problem is that Nick has the setting in his profile as he stated in his last post,
When sending notification of a reply to a topic, send the post in the email (but please don't reply to these emails.)
turned off, and he still gets the actual post in the email, which it shouldn't.

I have the very same setting as Nick, and I don't get the post, which is correct and so it works for me, but unfortunately not for Nick and possibly many more people.

Hence my question to Nick, asking if he had that setting he had circled in red set prior the 'downgrade'.
If so, it is still stuck on internally in the forum software, even though it shows it is off or un-selected.

If I try to select that setting and save the change, it doesn't, it reverts back to being clear.

I suspect that anyone who had that setting selected prior the 'downgrade' will be stuck with the embedded post in thier email together with all that HTML as it appears you can not chaneg it, not yet anyhow.

I hope that clears it up a tad  :D

Yep, sure, it might be a bit different.

Simply go into the forum board section of your choice and at the top, you will (read should) see a box there 'Receive Emails and Alerts'. Press this and a popup will appear to the right where you can select your choice of alert.

Then, again, in your profile section, go to 'Profile | Settings | Watched Boards' where you will then see the boards you currently are watching.

Just changed a setting in the profile setting section that allows you to select if you want the post included in your email notification, albeit still with BBCodes.

Below 'General Settings' is 'Alert Preferences', and the second setting there is a checkbox titled ' Receive message body in e-mails'.

I have had this off, thus no post included in my emails.
Selecting the checkbox and saving the settings has me receiving the post in the email, but like I say, with BBCodes.

It seems a double up of the checkbox Nick circled in red earlier in his last post.



Yes, that clears that up nicely, I understand now  :P Thanks!

Nick, did you have this setting set to include posts in the email before the upgrade downgrade?
Yes I did.
Please post technical questions on the forum, not by personal message. Thanks!
