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.
We hope that you enjoy these new features!
I keep getting emails I don't want even though I set it to never email me about them.
And now it won't let me go edit my settings.
I tried on IE9 and Firefox and it just shows me the gray background after I put in my secret answer.
I'm sure this will be buggy at first but it doesn't work for me at all.
Sends me stuff I told it not to... for the past two days.
And I can't even go in and edit it now.
Thank u for the continual improvements in hubpages. Credit goes to one and all in the hubpages team.
Well done, Ari! This is amazing, and I hope it works exactly as promised. I'm looking forward to trying it out right away.
I just received one of these e-mails and wondered what it was all about. Glad this post was here. Thanks for the quick update and it sounds like a great system.
I'm such a huge fan of this update. Thanks a ton Ari! It's awesome!!!
Will go and check my email right now. The vacation feature is an especially good idea!
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, outstanding update. It seems you have thought of most everything-- the vacation feature is brilliant. Thanks for your hard work.
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?
I just now checked, and it looks perfect! Thank you.
I think maybe my browser was just tired. Working too hard or something.
I'm having the same problem Ari. It would be great to get a digest rather than individual e-mails but when I change and save the settings it reverts back to auto on the e-mail buttons.
Ari, I just got an email notification digest today, and I thought it was awesome. I love it! Thanks
