That's a very important feature in case ML is getting bigger. It should default to no alerting at all but let you subscribe to some threads. Exactly like SW. Everything else is a notification overkill.
I think that it does that. Both let you turn on subscribe by default or subscribe manually only.
Did you change the new user default notification to be off? At one point the default for new users was on.
Default is currently email responses to subscribed threads, same as Spiceworks. Uses can manually change it to whatever they want. And they can change how subscribes work. Right now, if you respond to a thread, you get subscribed.
My feeling on that is that it is important for casual or new users to have it like that or they post and forget and they don't realize that we have responded or can't find their thread again. Those that are around a lot can easily make the change and customize.
I'm certainly open to other ideas, but I've thought about this around expectation and practicality and it seems like getting responses by default for new users is important.
Why doesn't the right side add float?
Simply because you jacked it into a space that doesn't?
It's in the space that the platform provides for it and that widget does not float. It's used as intended and by design, unfortunately floating is not a feature of that space. The widget upgrades are on hold per NodeBB until after the 1.0 release which they hope will be in Janaury.
interesting on their part. I mean it is not like advertising should be a surprise. Unless you are charging for access, you generally have to use add revenue in some fashion to offset costs. There is no way that they should now know that and so much or the rest of the design seems so solid and natural that not having a floating add space in the design just blows my mind.
I think I've figured out the main issue...
When clicking on a notification, the notification links to, for example: https://mangolassi.it/post/296273
After that, the browser is supposed to automatically redirect to: https://mangolassi.it/topic/13654/for-the-love-of-ipod/11, which it does in all other browsers and Edge pre-1703 update.
In MS Edge now (post 1703), after you left click a notification, it takes you to the first link, and gives you my original error. When I middle click to open it in a new tab, it works as normal, and redirects to the second link.
It gives that error on all Windows 10 1703 devices, on the Edge browser. Pre 1703, the issue does not occur in Edge.
Can you replicate the behavior on another site such as community.nodebb.com?
To make sure it is not an issue with how ML is configured.
It's especially bad, though. If I search on "Windows 2012" I will get a result from ANY page with the word windows OR the word 2012. Instead of narrowing my search, it expands it in a completely useless way!
