Are email notifications supposed to be sent if I set a category on “tracking” in my account? Currently it doesn’t.
EDIT: Bringing my post below up here:
The wording of the two mislead me to believe that “tracking” is supposed to do more (it’s also higher placed in the config pane). I can confirm that on my installation (1.8.0.beta10+57) the “watching first post” also shows a counter for new replies so it looks like “watching first post” includes the functionality of “tracking”. The config pane is a little confusing says:
- Tracking: You will automatically track all topics in these categories. A count of new posts will appear next to the topic.
- Watching first post: You will be notified of the first post in each new topic in these categories.
In that order. “watchign first post” also shows a count of new posts next to each topic. The above wording could be improved, and the order of the two perhaps also reversed.
This one also eludes me: “You will automatically track all topics in these categories.” … what does that mean, exactly? I haven’t noticed anything special.
