    2jays - Nitram is TPtest 3! It’s a name he adopted when we were doing the testing and did this talking to himself then too!
    I’m wondering ............ !
    No, you ‘re not a robot are you Nitram?!

    The trouble is I’m getting alerts for all these!

    I'm investigating watched threads alerts.
    • They regularly fail if the recipient is logged out
    • @jugglingmum and myself are having problems even when not logged out but with the browser closed.
    • When logged out the members name vanishes from https://forum.alzheimers.org.uk/online/?type=registered immediately.
    • When logged in with browser closed the name vanishes from this list after 15 minutes.
    • The 'just trying something' post was with the recipient logged in and browser open. The 5,10,15,20 posts were times in approx minutes after closing the browser and staying logged in. to see if any caused caused an alert. Only 'just trying something' did,I read this alert as only the first alert shows until the thread is read
    • On the ones that did not give you an alert. Were you logged on? Did you have your browser open?
    The only reliable way of checking 'Watched Threads' seems to be to go to https://forum.alzheimers.org.uk/watched/threads

    Ah now I understand.
    I never log out and the TP site is always at the top of my iPad when I tap on Safari. Anything else I use Safari for is an additional site on the top bar and not instead of TP.
    However I do flit from here to FB and other things, returning here every so often when I’m using the iPad - which is a lot!

    I have noticed that I miss some red flag alerts too. As my usual route when coming here is to tap on Recent Posts I haven’t found it much of a problem though. The only two email alerts I have selected seem to work ok.

    The only flag alerts that I know I have missed have been watched thread, quotes, mentions, and tags do not seem to be affected.

    I do not get an email if an alert for a watched thread is missed, otherwise emails work as expected.

    Relying on watched threads is worst than useless, as I said much better to go to https://forum.alzheimers.org.uk/watched/threads

    Seeing as it seems that every time I post on a thread the box at the bottom is ticked for an alert, I have to say I’m rather glad I don’t get a red flag for them all!

    Yes, I get a free flag for mentions too. Not sure about the others but probably so.

    You will automatically watch any thread you post in if you have enabled
    Automatically watch threads that you create or when you reply...
    in https://forum.alzheimers.org.uk/account/preferences

    That's correct, you don't get watched thread alerts for your own posts.

    That’s not what I meant. I meant later, after I had posted and caused the alert!

    That's exactly what I have been saying! You have to edit every time.

    I can insert images

    P1010669.JPG

    anywhere in a post

    L'aire s'ouvre winter 2016.jpg

    with no problem, just by placing the cursor each time before I click on thumbnail or full image

    Does not work for me. Like @Beate and @2jays regardless of where I place the cursor the photo goes to the top.
