Moderators/tierra: Double notification

Postby ONEEYEMAN » Mon May 14, 2018 3:20 pm

Hi,
For some reason I am getting double notification from the replies on the thread I am giving replies.

Scenario:
I am giving a reply to a thread.
After some time I receive an E-mail about reply. I get only 1 e-mail per reply.
When I open the forum and click the "Notification" link, in the dropdown I see 2 notifications that are exactly the same (poster name/time/topic). And the number of replies also indicate "2" as in the "Notifications (2)".

I tried to ask this already, but IIRC, didn't get any replies.

Could someone please look into that?
Maybe it is time to update the forum software?

Thank you.

Hi,

((I moved the thread from the C++ subforum as I doubt if phpBB is written in C++.)

I know little about the finer points of phpBB, but I suggest you first have a look in your Notification settings and check they aren't in some way duplicated.

If not, maybe it's related to this thread that google found, which sounds like a similar issue. BTW wxForum is currently using phpBB 3.1.8.

Regards,

David

Hi, David,
I'm attaching 2 screenshots.
1. From the Notifications for you to see the problem. There 2 notifications for the 1 post from kurtNovoselic.
2. My notifications settings.

Please let me know if there is something I can try.

Thank you.

There 2 notifications for the 1 post from kurtNovoselic.

Yes, but it looks like one is because he quoted you, the other because he replied to a topic in which you are subscribed.

If you untick the 'Someone quotes you in a post' box that presumably will stop happening.
