    Hi guys!

    When I set-up my account on this forum, I immediately noticed a very cool feature. Every time I was thanked to or quoted I received a notification to the right of my user name. Now, this feature doesn't seem to be working and I really miss it. Was this feature deactivated for some reason or is there something wrong with my account? As far as I can remember, I didn't change any settings that could deactivate such a feature.
    I would really appreciate some help regarding this matter. Thanks in advance! :smile:

    Regards,
    Ivan

    Hi Ivan,
    The site was hacked a few weeks back and we still haven't gotten everything going again. Some of the features may not be available, but Amin has been bust behind the scenes restoring as much back to working order as possible.

    I understand, but I miss notifications, too. One thing I figured out, if you've asked a question, you can use site search to see if it's been answered.

    Sorry folks.... notifications are gone for good. That was being done with a plugin called vBSEO, which is a company that has now shut down and is no longer keeping their software updated with security patches and therefore it is potentially an open door for hackers. Perhaps a new plug-in that does the same thing will come along to fill that empty space in the market.

    Fret not thyself, Steve!

    There may be light at the end of the software tunnel...something new could come along, in the meantime we'll all try to be more loving.:tongue:

    No, thank you for sharing, Kathern875! Because you so kindly revived this thread, I get to listen to this beautiful song again:
