split topic from here https://fractalforums.org/off-topic/29/is-the-community-dead/1965/msg11722#new because we drifted offtopic.

Fraktalist, 3Dickulus, thank you!
This is exactly what I was hoping for! And at no cost to any former features too!  :worship:

Now I have a wish: this Ignore Board-page is really fantastic since it gives a simple and clear sitemap of all boards, would be great to have the same for adding notifications... Hm? :) :embarrass:

Not sure if this is what you mean, but we already have it, though maybe a bit hidden.

Select any board from the homepage. And click on "notify" on top right, see attached screenshot.
You will now be notified for every new thread posted in that board.
To be notified about each new reply in a thread, just open the thread and click on "notify" at the same location.

To manage your notification, go to your profile/notifications


If you had something different in mind, please elaborate.

@Fraktalist That are the notifications for separate threads (10 pages of them :) )

But really meant boards:

Set up like the Ignore Boards-page with checkboxes that you can click to get notified of everything posted on that board

That's what I meant.

Mind you, I might be the only one that thinks that might be something nice to have ;) But I haven't seen anything on FF as yet that gives such a good overview of all boards... And combining that with the possibility to enable the notifies...

I hope you don't mind that I split the topic, as it got a bit too far off-topic now.

Hm, you are right, that's a nice overview indeed. Afaik there is no way to have that for notification as well. That would be comfortable. Maybe 3dickulus has an idea.

Until then you'll just have to go through all the boards on the index view(home) and turn on notification there.

I am confident that when you use the notify button when viewing a complete board, it turns on notification for new threads in that board.
When you click notify in a thread it's for new posts.
In your manage notification menu, you will see thread notifications and below the board notifications.

I haven't tested the functionality yet, but it should do what it promises.

I don't want to generate lots of work for you, it was just an idea ;)
It just seemed logical to me that if there is such an overview for ignoring there would be the same with a notify option...

Just had a search on the SMF forum, but there does not seem to be anything that does what I meant.

So if it's ok with you, just close this :)
I'll keep on doing the board notification the 'old way' ;)

Thank you, Fraktalist, for your support! :)

I'm glad "Ignoring" is working, however...
Fragmentarium is not a toy, it is a very versatile tool that can be used to make toys ;)
