Feedback notifications not appearing

    I added a contact form but have chosen not to receive notifications via email; I only want them to show up on the “Feedbacks” setting under my dashboard, which is listed below comments (theme, 2012).

    I had someone send me a question using the contact form and I did receive it. I was hoping to get a notification, the same as when I receive a new comment, or someone has liked my post, etc.

    It doesn’t show. I only knew because I clicked on the Feedbacks tab.

    Perhaps wordpress.com and the 2012 theme doesn’t provide notifications for feedbacks?

    The blog I need help with is cravingthis.wordpress.com.

    You have two separate email address settings at WordPress.com.

    Blog notifications for the admin (like comment moderation, Likes, new subscriptions, etc) are sent to the email address at Settings -> General in the Dashboard.

    Personal notifications (like comments on your post, subscription emails, and upgrade renewals) are sent to the email address at Users -> Personal Settings in the Dashboard.

    Hi timethief – I read this reply when searching the forums. I understand about the 2 different email addresses.

    I would like to receive a notification, right within my blog, not email related.

    Oh, would you know how to correct my post title? Darn typo.

    Thanks (as always) :)

    I think this might be the reason. I looked under my “notifications” archive and it lists:

    Latest
    Unread
    Comments
    Follows
    Likes
    Reblogs
    Awards

    Since feedback is not listed, I probably wouldn’t receive a notification (within my blog) for contact form submissions.

    Thanks timethief and jonathansadowski.

    For my second question, is there a way to fix the typo in my title? I should be more careful before hitting submit next time :)

    Do you mean the typo in this thread title? If so only Staff and Moderators can edit threads, close or delete threads.
