Hello! Tech has released a new fix today. If you receive a PM from now you should get a notification symbol (a little bell icon) above the Inbox tab in the top right of the screen.
We're working on a few other fixes too (in particular the desktop/mobile view issue) so we'll let you know once they're done.

Lara Some of us have got the bell, but no new email! Does the bell change colour or flash to alert us?!

I've got a bell but no new message.
Do we have to delete old messages?

BlueBelle Thu 17-Sep-20 21:57:04

I haven’t got a bell and I want one if everyone else has got one so there πŸ˜‚

I have a bell but no PM. BlueBelle I deserve one, a bell that is.

What is going on?? Loads of posts have vanished

Thanks for the feedback all. We'll take a look in the morning to see why some of you aren't getting it (and why some of you without new messages are too). @Lucca, which posts have disappeared? Some on this thread?

I haven't got a little bell, but then I hardly ever get PMs anyway. Proper Billie no mates, me sadwink

I have a new bell, but I had read the message in there a couple of days ago, and even reading it again doesn't make the bell disappear, which surely it should?

Lara has just posted on this thread:

Agreed the bell works but I still do not receive in my Email box, notifications that new posts have been made on threads I am watching. I had this service a year or so back and then they stopped.

I have a bell but no new messages, it just appears to be sitting there.

BlueBelle Fri 18-Sep-20 04:03:22

Lara says they will be working on it today. Well not Lara herself, but the techies!.😁

Lucca I think you will find that Marydoll started a thread on the same subject yesterday evening but a different title. I have not looked for it yet.

Here's a link Lucca

Yes I got confused. There often seem to be multiple threads on the same thing.

Lucca Fri 18-Sep-20 10:44:09

I contributed on the other thread.....

Hello - update from us. More investigation is needed to figure out why bells are ringing for some and not others. Fingers crossed will be sorted next week. Although in the meantime sounds like some people are discovering messages they weren't aware of. Which is nice. Have lovely weekends all smile

BlueBelle Fri 18-Sep-20 18:17:38

....and laragransnet what about the mobile/ desktop problem of two weeks ???

Marydoll Fri 18-Sep-20 18:36:35

Here is a suggestion, which will probably be way off track and I will have made a complete fool of myself.

We have been given a fix to enable temporary access to the mobile/desktop sites.

Would it not work to have a hyperlink called Mobile or Desktop at the bottom of the page, which has that link given by GN as a temporary fix, hidden beneath it.

That's what I used to do on our school website.
Or have I got it completely wrong? blush.
