    Automatic Subscriptions & Jump to Page

    Hey Marc, were you ever able to figure out the issue where you autmotically get subscribed to a thread after making a certain amount of posts in a thread? I'm not sure if anyone else is having this problem but it can get annoying sometimes with getting notifications that someone posted in a subscribed thread.

    Re: Automatic Subscriptions

    That seems pretty obvious but I'm pretty sure notifications are the whole point of subscriptions...

    Yea, it was a known issue when they implemented the double post prevention feature. I've done a few updates since then.

    Unsubscribe from the threads you don't want and let me know if it's still happening.

    Re: Automatic Subscriptions

    It happened again this morning. It seems to happen after posting multiple times in the same thread within a certain time period.

    Yes, posting directly after yourself is exactly what causes it. I'll look into this.

    Re: Automatic Subscriptions

    That makes sense, I just thought I hadn't double posted this morning but when I looked back I did. Thanks Marc, I appreciate your help and the fact that you put up this site in the first place and maintain it!

    Someone's gotta do it now I just need to find the time to do the front page upgrade on the live site.

    Re: Automatic Subscriptions

    I hate to be a bother but there was one other slight issue that I thought I would bring up. When I try to use the "jump to page" feature it doesn't work properly unless the number of posts per page is set to 30. I've always just been using the forum default and tried to see if that was the issue but it still didn't work properly on any other setting other than 30.

    Re: Automatic Subscriptions & Jump to Page

    Good eye! Setting the number of posts per page to 30 still results in the same problem. I'm currently looking into it.

    Regarding the automatic subscription issue - I have disabled the double post prevention feature. Go into your thread subscriptions (http://tbmotoring.com/subscription.php) and delete any threads you don't want to be subscribed to and make sure the ones you do have their notification set to what you prefer (i.e. control panel only, instant, daily or weekly).

    I can turn it back on if you prefer and don't mind the minor automatic subscriptions issue. There is still no fix, it's a known software bug - essentially, activating the double post prevention and merging your posts automatically subscribes you to that tread.

    Now that we don't have it I kind of miss it.

    Could we turn this feature back on please? It helps with the clutter and finding all the info in one post instead of 5

    I'm going to update a few things when I have some free time, if it doesn't fix these issues then I'll just turn them back on anyway.
