"Subscribe to topic" not working

    Just a heads up to WP. The “Notify me of followup posts … ” option on forum questions is not working. At least not for me. I just found that at least 6 of my questions, up to four months old, had been answered, but I did not receive any email notifications. All questions said at the top that I was subscribed to the topic. In fact, that’s long been the default whenever a question is posted.

    Anyway, a belated thanks to staff and volunteers who replied to my questions. I’m sorry I didn’t get back to you at the time.

    The blog I need help with is piedtype.com.



    Hi there,
    I’m thinking that this could be a browser related issue because I don’t have it. Please provide this specific info:
    (a) Exactly what kind of device you are using to connect to the internet and to WordPress.com.
    (b) Exactly which browser (and version of it) you’re using by checking here if necessary http://supportdetails.com/

    Then type modlook into the sidebar tags on this thread for Staff help. How do I get a Moderator/Staff reply for my question? https://en.support.wordpress.com/getting-help-in-the-forums/#how-do-i-get-a-moderatorstaff-reply-for-my-question Then please subscribe to this thread so you are notified when they respond. To subscribe look in the sidebar of this thread, find the subscribe to topics link and click it.



    Feeling pretty sheepish right now. It seems at some point I accidentally checked “spam” instead of “delete” on a WordPress email (the buttons are right next to each other in Gmail), so the notifications had been going to spam ever since. My bad. Mea culpa.

    (Not time wasted though. I did discover that my browser needed updating.)

    Thanks, tt.
