    I added a modification that notifies members when they have been quoted in the forum. Unfortunately this mod doesn't let each member decide whether they want quote notifications or not, so either everyone gets them or no one does.

    Let me know whether you like it, and after getting some feedback I'll decide whether to keep the mod or uninstall it. Thanks!

    I think I like it too. Just wish it were opt out.

    I like it - I think.
    Hard sometimes to see who responded to a post otherwise…unless I'm missing something, which is possible.

    I'll have to stock up on apology cards in case someone actually quotes me...bad enough folks have to read me once, let alone twice...

    :biggrin:

    Put me in the "ambivalent" column. I can't imagine being quoted (and thus notified) so often that it becomes bothersome. Should that happen one might want to consider starting one's own blog..:biggrin:

    Regards,

    Jim

    This sounds like a reasonable idea and many, myself included, would be interested in getting a notification. Otherwise, I may never see it to respond or thank...

    It's a brilliant feature! When someone quotes you, they are often asking a question about your post. It is normal practice to get notice when you have been quoted, because someone has 'engaged' with you. Previously, it was so very easy to miss them, because you have to keep poring over threads where you might have only had a specific interest that has moved on.

    It's enough to make me subscribe, to be sure to be sure. :rolleyes:

    Okayyyy...... that didn't work too well. My Notifications tab at the top of the page showed '1' (great!), and when I opened it I saw the words '1 Quote' with a link embedded (great!), but when I opened the link it didn't take me to the post where I am quoted. :frown: It took me to the address 'https://www.mu-43.com/usercp.php', called the Settings page, which seems to look no different to the Subscribed Threads page, but only showing threads with new posts.

    OHHHH, WAIT, I FOUND IT!! Right at the bottom of the 'Settings' page is a table called 'Who Quoted Me', with a direct link to your quote, agentlossing. Beautiful.

    If it could be moved to the top of the Settings page, that would be more efficient IMHO.

    cheers. And thank you.

    I'm not sure about quote notification feature.
    But I have question: is there @user_name notification feature on this forum? In other words: when @user_name is mentioned, would the respective user get the notification about post?
