    That's still a good question Charlie, and maybe you could explain what changing my vBulletin General Setting to "through my control panel only" actually does.

    And also why there was such a long delay from yesterday afternoon when I made the change until this morning before things started happening, and is that the proper setting to use???

    It has always been instant notification with all my vbulletin forums I am a member at.

    And by the way, the incident notification still works on all the other forums I'm a member at. My only vBulletin problems I've ever had have been at this mac-forums site, and most of those being within the last 6 months and basically no changes have been made at my end.

    I'm not even sure the last change I made is the correct one or just something acting like a hack.

    Could you confirm which is the correct one to use???

    Thanks,


    - Patrick

    I'll try to find an answer to that option Patrick as I'm not sure it makes any difference.

    I just checked our Admin panel to see if there is a help topic on the option through my control panel only and unfortunately there is no description for that option. I did make several changes to your profile as an experiment to see if they might work better for you. Let me know.

    Thanks Charlie,

    I have wasted a lot of time at the vBulletin site and their forums trying to find some information on some of their options that their software uses.

    So far pretty well useless, and I guess one is supposed to or expected to learn just by osmosis.

    I can't even find anything in this forum called "control panel"
    Where is that? Can somebody point me to it?

    I believe that is only for Admins and Mods.

    You may be right, but then this doesn't make sense to me.
    Why would a member have the option to set notifications to "my control panel only" if the member then has no access to it?
    It also says "my" which implies it's something I should have access to.

    I think the "control panel" in question is the page you get with "Settings." At least on my Settings page I see any subscribed thread with a new post in it.

    I think it probably depends on how each forum's vBulletin page is set up by the particular administrators.

    For example, another vBulletin forum we use (ehmac.ca) does not seem to have an option for "Settings" but does have one for "User CP", I gather the CP stands for Control Panels, and when it is selected, one ends up at the user's "Settings", basically all the same thing just a different name and/or location for access.

    But I think, as I glance back, that Jake has already explained the same thing.

    What would really be appreciated and nice would be if the vBulletin Developers Support people actually had a user's user manual (not just for admins) one could use to check out what they mean by some of their Settings wording or descriptions.

    vBulletin forum software has been around since 2000 (19 years)...and more than likely terminology used in previous versions & modified in newer versions...may have not been completely expunged from the newer versions.

    For example...in vBulletin 3...this is what the "Member Settings" area looked like (notice the use of the terms "User CP" and "User Control Panel"):

    In vBulletin 4 (our version)...the "Member Settings" area looks like this (what Mac-Forums members should be familiar with):
