I am new to my MES and to using a forum which so far both have a good experience. However, I am curious how I mark messages that I read? I keep getting e-mails reminding that I have 100+ messages Unread. I have in fact read them all from previous messages but I don't allways reply or input.

Welcome aboard!

To help solve your problem:

click on MY PROFILE;


you'll see part one containing BASIC INFORMATION;

just below that is EMAIL PREFERENCES;

you can set your subscriptions to SITE ONLY and this will end the emails for replies to all subscribed threads.

This will show a dark red box when you go to MY PROFILE,  to the left of any thread you are subscibed to if there is a new reply which you have not read.

I'm not sure if there is a way to stop email notifications other than going through those steps, or if there are options which allow only some email notifications. I prefer to use no wmai lnotifications for all subscriptions. I check in daily here, so I don't miss much of interest.

If you bookmark your profile page after you have your personal preferences selected, you can click on that bookmark in your web browser and have instant access to your subscribed threads as well as personal message notification.

Enjoy the forums!

Welcome to SMF - If you are logged in, one you read a thread it will turn blue- If someone posts in that thread after you read it the lettering will be bold so you know others have posted on that thread after you. This only works if you are logged in

Also, If you decide that you have read everything that you care to read -- there is a button that says "mark all forums read" somewhere near the top.  Click on that and all the posts will be marked as read, will appear in grey rather than bold.  Then next time you come back and sign in, the newer posts will be in bold.
