"I don't want to see updates for this topic again" Option
« on: April 11, 2017, 12:20:01 PM »

So there are several threads (topics) I have posted on. For example I post a comment on Page 3 of a thread and I'm still receiving updates for that topic whenever I click "Show new replies to your posts" and that thread is on page 35 and clearly no one is responding to what I said on Page 3 by that point. I wish there was a box of something I could click so I'm not receiving new replies to certain threads that I really have no interest in seeing anymore. I'd rather have stuff I have not commented on in several months show up under "Show unread posts since last visit".

You can. Click the unnotify button at the top of those topics.

That doesn't work. Even if you aren't notified, the problem will still happen. You can easily check that, because if you have posted in this thread, it will say "Notify", not "Unnotify".

Profile > Notifications (at left column) > Current Topic Notifications

Wade through the threads (I don't think all threads are there, mine cut-off at 2012...a limit, perhaps).

Select the check box on the far right of each topic.

Click the Unnotify button near the bottom right

Log out and log back in.

The Notify/Unnotify toggle doesn't seem to work for me, I think it just stops sending e-mails on new replies.

"You are not currently receiving any notifications from topics."

That means...you're doing it wrong.

Like for example the Oil/Gas Prices thread. I probably commented on page 24 of that thread and it's on page 70 now and when I click on the "Show new replies to your posts" option that still pops up. There should be an option to where I can stop getting updates for that. I'd rather see that under the "Show unread posts since last visit" option at this point.

I don't do notifications, so forgive me if this is an ignorant comment...

Doesn't notifications refer to being sent a message whenever someone replies to a post?  That's a different thing than the thread appearing in the "Show new replies to your posts" list.  Again, I might confused about the terminology, but that sounds right to me.  I've never clicked on "Notify," but I still see plenty of threads listed in "Show new replies to your posts."

If you ever replied in a thread, it will continue to show up there regardless.  No way around it as that's how it's been coded in SMF and I can't change that.

That's why I don't post on some threads that I find interesting, but in the long run don't really affect me.

Unless my screen is different as a mod, at the upper right of the discussion is

REPLY  / ADD POLL / NOTIFY (or UNNOTIFY) (which sends an e-mail) / MARK UNREAD / SEND THIS TOPIC / PRINT

I still get notifications Show new replies to your posts on my page when I log in, but I scroll past the ones that no longer interest me.

Same, except ADD POLL only shows for threads I started.
