Hi!
I'm not receiving from the topics that I'm following and have replied to. What's causing this? Is there anything I can do, or is it a temporary glitch?

I noticed it started yesterday, also. We need our Fry A Day Notifications, please.

Any notifications would be good. I especially need them for the Christmas project.

I don't know how to fix this issue, but a very good workaround I've found (especially for Fry-A-Day, because I get to see the FULL size pictures ) is to add your favorite thread as an RSS feed.

If you're using Safari, or a web browser that supports RSS feeds, go to your favorite thread, and change the "http://" to "feed://" and bookmark it. It should register as an RSS feed, and you'll get the update in news-feeder fashion.

Like I said, not a proper fix, but a viable workaround for the notification issue.

Found out that if you go into your profile, there's an RSS link there. I see BIG STEPHENS.

That's the way I like my F-A-D

Hey Fryphile and Gjhsu. When I click RSS feed this is what I get.

Is there something I should do to make it look like a real page and show me pictures? I am sure there is something I should be doing, but I don't know what it is. Thanks. Oh, and I am using Firefox (just in case my browser makes a difference).

Firefox. I always thought that was the way RSS feeds were supposed to look until I heard you and Fryphile talking.

Ginj, it appears your viewing the code... can't see the image properly but it appears to say it has no style associated with it, which makes me think it can't find the stylesheet and so the browser doesn't know how to display the feed...

I could be wrong though.

Yes, tallyg, you are absolutely right, that is the problem. And it is that way on my netbook too. So I do I tell the computer what stylesheet to associate with this feed?

Hmm, I know nothing about XML, only a bit about HTML and CSS. If it did need a stylesheet, the web designers would of put one in. Did a quick search and seems that it shouldn't need a stylesheet.

Em, what version of Firefox are you running? Is it the same on every RSS feed or just certain threads? Have you tried viewing it through another browser?

Thank you for your help, tallyg, this is the sentence that made all of the difference. I was hitting the RSS feed under my Favorites, but when you said that I noticed that there is an RSS feed link at the top of each thread. When I clicked on that it seemed to work fine. Thank you very much.

Back to the OP - how do we get notifications? I'm posting & ticked the 'add this thread to favourites' so have no ideas!

I have a cunning plan!
