    Hi Gordy,

    Yes, that is indeed possible with the new software :). I do that very same thing myself on XenForo - I use the on-page alerts to notify my of replies, but instant e-mail notification to let me know of replies to important/urgent threads.

    I'm going to be starting the upgrade very soon - I'll make the forum "read only" while it goes ahead :). Once everything is in read only mode, I'll add a notice to the forum.

    If you didn't find it Gordy, under your name is preferences, click that and under options you can tell it not to send you email notifications, or automatically watch threads.

    Addy,

    Thanks, I went seeking it after you mentioned that it was a setting that I could change. Took a little time for me to find it, but I got 'er done! :)

    The new forum look is very nice!

    I am a creature of habit so it will take a little time to fully adjust, but I certainly like it so far.

    We all get comfy click without needing to think, change is good, but it does take some time to adjust. I keep going to that little x the old forum had to preview a thread............not there lol, so retraining my hand movements.
