Could we make it so that we don't get a notification with each new blog post?
Please turn them off.. I cannot take it!!!!
I was wondering what was going on with my notifications alerts!
I just came through to post this. I turned off blog notifications but those numbers still pop up on my screen. My OCD to mark them as read is killing my soul. .
ETA: I keep marking them as read and the same 3 posts keep coming back as unread.
same. they're really annoying
My notifications say like 30 next to it....it drove me so crazy I logged on via my computer instead of my phone. I really hope they fix it.
Where is the option to turn off blog notifications?
That red alert is killing me softly too.
At the top right blue bar, click on your screen name and select 'alert preferences' and the blog section is at the bottom.
It doesn't work, that red number 3 refuses to leave my screen.
Why does the board hate me?
Try visiting each blog just once more and see if that removes the 3. I think the 3 is saying you have 3 unread blog-related items. And, now that you have changed your settings, hopefully you won't get anymore.
i did that and it doesnt work
I did the same thing. Technically it works like it's supposed to because the new blog alerts don't show up where I get alerts for threads and forums I watch. Instead the flag is over the Blogs link, and reappears even when I click to mark the blogs as read.
Strange. Once I click on a blog title of a blog with a new item, the notification number goes down and does not return. Hmm.
Oh, that was the first thing I did. (BTW -Good luck with your planning goals.) The numbers go away but when I open a new page they come right back. It's a board glitch not a blogger glitch.
Thanks so much!
Well, hopefully it gets fixed soon!
GRRR. I don't care to read the blogs. All these notifications make me wish they were off again.
Is this the concern? If so, I'm happy it's not happening to me.
Yasssss *Hate Them*
Somebody...Anybody please make them STOP!
I clicked on blog (arrow) and then clicked mark as read and the red number 7 (or whatever number you have) vanished.
I just want to say thank you for bringing the blog feature back
What is the difference in creating a blog verses a thread. Some of the topics will be redundant..no?
It goes away but comes right back when you refresh the page or open a new tab
Right but those don't affect settings for any random new blog post, just ones that you start or comment on or similar.
We need a setting to turn off all blog alerts.
I thought it was just me who didn't want to see that red blog alert. I haven't posted in any blogs so I haven't had any personal notifications but I see that red # there and it's kind of distracting.
If...... these........blog.......alerts.......do........not.......STOP.......I......will.... SCREAM!!!
It's like playing whack-a-mole. I mark it as read and it makes me think they're gone and they're right back!!! PLEASE make it stop!!!
I'm unable to create a new thread. It's asking me to post the content and there is no box to do that, only a box for the thread title. WhatsUpWithThat? Help. Thanks.
Also: I can read but not like or reply to any blog posts. It says I don't have permission. And having to go to a secondary page to confirm each and every like is just I'm sure you guys are working out the bugs, so whatever you can do would be appreciated. I'll check back later.
same for me
The board goes back and forth on allowing me to post. Hopefully, it's being caused by Nikos'nem fixing this blog notification thing.
No you are not alone.
Along with these 2 glitches that recently appeared
1. Now when you click thanks you get "Are you sure you want to like this post?"
2. I can only reply to a post by replying to someone elses but I am unable to "reply" type a response so I then need to edit to actually type my response.
This is hindering me from posting and thanking posters.
