    'Replies' in my profile 20th Mar 17 at 7:02 PM
    When I look on my profile there is a '1' against 'Replies'. Does this mean that someone has replied to a post I made? If so how do I see it? If I click on the '1' it just takes me back to my profile page.

    Sorry if this isn't the correct place to ask or if I missed it in the introduction material.

    Go to your messages and have look.
    If it is not come back, and I will rack my brain.

    Cant really picture what your describing, could you take a screenshot of what your describing.

    By the way, is there any way of knowing if someone has replied to a post you have made without just looking through all the posts in threads where you have posted? I am a member of another forum that uses the same software as this but on that one you get a notification if someone has like your post or replied to it.

I don't want to receive an e-mail (especially not every time someone posts in a thread I've subscribed to ) I just want (if it's available as it is on the other site) a notification that I've had a reply. On that site, which as I said uses the same software as this site, there is a bar near the top of the page and if someone likes any of my posts or replies I get a message that says 'notifications 2' or whatever. I then click on that and it lists all the 'likes' PMs or quotes of my posts that I've had.

    Hi Cloth of Gold

    If you click on your avatar > "Your Profile" > "unread posts" you can view the threads you've posted on that have been replied to since you last looked.

I'm a member of another board that uses the same software as this site and on there you get a notification at the top of the page if someone has quoted you or 'liked' one of your posts.

    Hi, which forum is it? Could you give me the link?

    The problem we have is that we still run on a very old version of Vbulletin so it's possible that's a functionality built into a newer version than we have.

    We're hoping to upgrade forum software next year so it's definitely something we'll look into

    Thanks Andrea. If you could add it to the forum when you upgrade it would be great because as things stand you don't know if someone has quoted you or who has thanked you without trawling through lots of posts.
