Today I am happy to announce a few new features in how HubPages handles Notifications. These changes are designed to improve the experience of all users on Hubpages. * All new notifications settings are now handled from the email settings page. * You can determine the behavior that HubPages takes when you new content is created on Hubs that you follow, Questions that you follow, and Forum topics that you follow. * Currently we do our best to determine when you should be contacted about new content (such as a new comment on a Hub, a new Answer to a question, or a new Post to a forum topic). This is the "auto" choice. You can also choose to be always, or never, notified of new content. * Today we are also unveiling a new feature: the Notifications Digest. The digest will be sent out once a day, and will include a summary of all of your notifications for the day in one email. * Lastly, we are releasing a "Vacation" setting. If you select this, then HubPages will not send you any notification emails until you uncheck the box.
I love the idea of a way to stop notifications during a vacation. Not that I have any money for vacations. But there are times when I'm involved in a festival where I'm ther efor several days all day and night and I have no time for checking email. That would certainly help if I could do this was everyone
Ari, are the E-mail settings and Digest settings paired in a specific way? I wanted to leave Digest set to "Always" and E-mail to "Never," but after I saved the changes, all of the E-mail buttons showed up as "Auto." Is that supposed to happen? (I tried it a couple of different ways with the same result.)
I am not sure why you were unable to make this change, but I have gone ahead and made it for you. Can you take a look at your new settings and confirm that they are now set up to achieve what you want?
