I wonder if there is a way to get all notifications from a Discourse server without being administrator. For example gets updates when any post or reply is posted. I subscribed to a mailing list but it is very slow, I only gets the email after hours. Why is it so slow?
For all new posts/replies, as in your title? You can go into Preferences > Categories and set to Watch for all categories individually. Other options are Track, Watch first post, and Mute.
Does that help?
Well I tried it but it’s not working. I don’t have any notification. What I’m looking for would be to get push notifications OR/AND have emails quickly. I use mailing list but the emails arrive only at the end of the day or I don’t know how that works but that’s slow.
EDIT: I’ve just downloaded the app Discourse Hub to see if I’ll get notifications.
@snowcode, I’m not sure about the emails, but you can check Preferences > Notifications for push and desktop notifications.
Each forum might have the option for this feature configured slightly differently. This is what I see via mobile, from two different ones where I participate:
Well the forum I want doesn’t have this feature. I am currently trying the app but is it possible that I see the notification without getting any sound? Or am I just dumb and I got a prob with my phone?
Never an option!
I’m not sure. Post what phone you’re using, and then hopefully another user will have more info for you.
For this, you would need to review the app’s notification settings within your phone’s Settings…I think.
Don’t get discouraged! Keep troubleshooting and posting here!
Thank you for this kind message. It’s really nice to see such motivation and kindness in forum
My phone is an Android 6.0 (LG-K10) but I actually didn’t saw anything about the notification in the settings. But I keep looking for it
I’ve just tried with another forum but I think that push notifications are getting into the process of getting notification on the app. Because on this forum, push notifications cannot be enabled. So I don’t know how I’m going to do that, if anybody has an idea of script or extension for a browser to get all notifications out of a Discourse server (without getting access to the admin stuff) I am highly interested.
Your problems are specific to that discourse site so you would need to ask the admins there…
