Is there a way of informing one's forum members that a post has been made ? I expect this will seem pretty basic to some, but I am a fairly ancient newbie to all this and still finding my way around.

    Which version of Vanilla are you running?

    Your users have the option of setting their notification preferences via their profile to either popup, email or both.

    In Dashboard - users - roles and permissions

    you can edit the Member role to add Advanced notifications.

    This allows users to choose to be informed of threads or comments in specific categories.

    OK. Many thanks. Been in there and set it as you say. Much obliged to you.

    More thanks. Yes, I have done the email set up part, and I have warned them about possible notifications. I will now post what you have said about their own notification preferences.
