I've just fixed an issue with mailboxes so you can now batch delete private messages :)

Previously you had to go into individual PMs and delete them one by one as the option to delete in batches was broken. It's fixed now.

Have you tried clicking on that "Mark all messages read" link?
I thought about it, but I definitely didn't have any before we moved across so was not convinced they existed

i've noticed that links to external web pages dont open in a new tab automatically like they used to, but annoyingl;y replace the viewed page with the link on it. :evil: for example

If you right click, you should be given the option to open in a new tab

“external links now automatically get one over to the page they link to ...”

Sorry I don’t quite understand what you mean.
If you click on a link you get to that page and leave HL automatically. The link does no longer open in a new tab... :) ...
sorry, missed your reply :(

ah yes, gotcha!

not opening links in new tabs all over the place is generally regarded as best practice these days

there are numerous usability and accessibility problems with automatically spawning a new browser tab, so the new version of the forum software doesn't do it :)
@eastmidswhizzkid see above re: links in new windows 👍

For some reason unknown I no longer receive any email notifications of new post, not even for threads that I've started myself.
Does one have to chose between options in the control panel? And if so, how? I just don't seem to get it ... :? ...

You may need to recheck your preferences.
Go to
User control panel> Board preferences> edit notification options.

You should see this
Image

There you can check the email option &/or the notification option which shows up next to the little bell at the top right of the screen.
But, & I know this sounds daft but a lot of people (like me) forget. Click the submit button to confirm your choices.
Cheers.

Also, you may want to check your spam or junk folders. Sometimes emails sent by automated systems like this forum can get flagged as spam by your email provider.

Thanks, Pista and Quiff Boy for the suggestions ... :) ...

And yes, I'd suspected the spam folder as well and checked it, but no. Nothing has arrived on that account.

I've now submitted my choices in the user control board again. We will see ... :wink: ...

@Being645 I have subscribed to this topic to see if I get emails now. Curious to know what is happening.

edit: Just to be certain all bases are covered. Have you subscribed or bookmarked the topic/ board you want the email notifications for?

Cheers.

@Pista
Given that there's only the Unsubscribe option, I think I'm subscribed to it as usual. "Email topic" is for sending somebody else a hint at this topic, I guess. And bookmark is what is say on the tin, so no the usual email-notification stuff, either.

Hmm. I got an email from this thread when you replied
Image

Okay. Going to give this another go. On the thread tool drop down do you only see the unsubscribe option? If you do, check it. Then go to that tool again & you should see
Image
Now bear with me here. I'm determined to figure this out.
Choose the subscribe option & afterwards check it again. Once you've subscribed you should then only see the unsubscribe option listed .
Provided you choose to have emails to subscribed topics in you user control panel (& have submitted that choice) it should work.
For clarity, when I first subscribed to this thread it didn't work first time. I may have clicked the wrong thing, I don't know. But the second time it worked okay.
Fingers crossed
Cheers.

So, nothing has helped. And I still don't know why. Could there be a problem with my browser then?

No, it's more likely that your email provider is rejecting emails sent from our server. :(

ideally anything from "@myheartland.co.uk"

i think the forum sends emails as info@myheartland.co.uk if you need to add a specific address
