@birdleader, after my previous, don’t know if this helps but I have received email notification of private messages which are appearing in my site messages (!) but also in my site notifications. I also have email notification of me being mentioned, but these do not appear within the site. They can be got at through the link in the email which goes direct to the walkthrough where the message is.
Thanks for the kind words @bikkit. Right now I am leaning towards a very basic ABN Turbo account that replaces ads with some stuff (not exactly sure what yet).
BTW, if this @mention happens to pop up on the top left let me know. :)
(note, if you click the link in the email it will take you straight here and the on site notification will go way < which is normal)
Right, well done, whatever you did worked! I got TWO emails, one entitled birdleader mentioned me in an update and one (two minutes later??) entitles ABN Design Tweaks. Here in the site, I finally got a notification in the top left corner and clicking on whatever was the leftmost field (sorry can’t recall what it was cos it isn’t there anymore!) opened the page with all the other mentions I have had but for which I hadn’t had in-site notification. (And to which I couldn’t navigate??)
OK, I’m ‘professionally’ interested – what did you do?!?!?
@birdleader, just about 15 min ago mvnla2 mention me, but no notification, it straight go to ‘read notification’.
@birdleader it did work. I got email notification about two hours after the comment was made.
The load more button at the bottom is not functioning for me.
Yes, I tested on my computer and galaxy tab, on group, Load More is not working.
I’m only received notification when have a friend request.
@birdleader…Still not receiving notifications for mentions. I seem to be getting them for private messages. These I see to the left of my username, in a “blue” circle. I get everything in my emails, but unfortunately, I don’t check my email everyday!!
Just thought I would let you know. I did do a hard refresh, as you stated, and held off a few days before responding.
@birdleader – not sure this is the right place to post this but thought it may be because of the ‘tweaks’ I went to B&R to distribute some dusters and wanted to read back to make sure I didn’t miss anyone, pressed the ‘Laos more’ bar at the bottom but I just get the same page minus the ‘load more’ bar.
I’m also missing some notifications in the blue circle next to my name – top left of ABN – but do get them all in email.
Thanks again for all you do!
Hi @mumsie42, thanks for the report. I think I fixed the load more issue in the groups. Sorry about that.
The notification issue is still something I am trying to track down. Notifiations work sometimes, but not others. With that said, all the notifications are being created and when they don’t show up in the little blue circle it’s because they’re being marked as read. You can find a “Notifications” tab on your profile. If you click on “Read” you’ll see all your notifications. I will fix this, but I have to be able to recreate the cause first, which I haven’t been able to do with any regularity yet.
Hi! Overall I like the design and the ads don’t bother me. I’d rather see ads on the side than pay. The one thing I miss – the nice tight set of icons and links on a black background that used to be on the far right – next to “My Rank.” I realize they were a duplicate of those that are on white, spread across under the yellow bar but I preferred those and used them exclusively. I didn’t need to read the letters AB, ABS, etc. as I do with the others because these square icons on white look alike on my small iphone screen. Again – not a major issue, just something I will miss. Thanks for all the consideration you give and hard work put into one of the few sites I visit on a daily basis!
Maybe a separate forum on AB Go would be a good idea? Might keep people from creating new forums in the General Discussions forum every time they have a question. There have been who knows how many forums created to ask essentially the same question.
@birdleader are we supposed to get a notification number in the blue circle when we have been @ mentioned? If so, those last few @’s you sent me did come through via my email account but since the update/moving of the blue circle etc., I haven’t had numbers (besides 0) in the blue circle.
Yes, @chicadee, you are. I have been having sporadic issues as well, but as of yet I have not been able to figure out what is causing some to get marked as read. They are all still being generated just fine, but since they are mysteriously being marked as a read the number doesn’t show up in the blue circle.
OK @birdleader thanks. Btw this one didn’t show up in the blue circle either. At least they are going through to the email address.
@birdleader — Right now on the right side of the gold bar, it says “New Rocket Robo Review”. Is this space now a spot for a paid ad?
@birdleader — Well, you sure are keeping it a secret. Would help if the review page made it clear that it was from RocketPond.
It’s not from RocketPond. These reviews will live here. It just so happens she writes for RocketPond as well. It’s not a secret, but the section isn’t ready to be publicized yet. The link was simply an idea to get a few people to check out our review.
Boom! I think I have finally solved the @-mention notification issue. Please let it be true.
@birdleader – I have not been getting any of my @ mentions in the notification circle.
If you’d like to test it out, feel free to @ mention me.
Here you go @playdbird. Let me know. Note, if you click the link in the email or view your activity page the notification will be cleared.
