I KNOW HOW TO STOP GETTING COMMENTS EMAILS WITHOUT UNTICKING THE BOX

 

Do you want to know how to stop getting all those emails when you forget to untick the box on blogs that haven’t had the thingy disabled?

 

 

 

 

Do you?

 

 

 

 

 

 

I know how to.

 

 

 

 

 

I did some investigating while I can’t concentrate enough to write a post.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Do you want me to tell you?

 

 

 

 

Or are you okay as you are?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Have you sorted it out?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Do you always remember to untick the box?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

HA HA

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Okay, enough tormenting.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Go to Reader — Blogs I Follow and at the bottom of the left hand column you’ll see, in small faded letters –

‘MANAGE EMAIL DELIVERY SETTINGS’

click on it, and down the list you’ll see a ‘FOLLOW COMMENTS’ box – untick it, and VOILA, no more emails.

 

 

Don’t all thank me at once.

  1. You don’t like seeing our love in your inbox???????? I’m hurt and saddened and….actually…I’m just rather ambivalent, but I have an exam in 30 minutes so I don’t really want to study. I’m going to use that time instead to visit my favorite blogs and summon up some asinine comment that reeks of genius but looks terrible.

    • Dear Ezra,

      No, I don’t mean notifications of new posts, I mean all the follow-up comment emails that everyone’s been getting when they make a comment on someone’s blog.

  3. Who rocks more than you? :) I had no idea that while I was pissing away my afternoon on wordpress I would actually learn something. Now instead of it being a total waste of time and a means to escape doing the laundry, it’s a tutorial about the ins and outs of blogging. Thanks!!

  4. With all the hew and cry, one would think that WordPress would un-do that nasty change. Thanks Dotty!

    • Dear Robin,

      You’re welcome – at least it’s one less thing to irritate you while you’re drumming your fingers waiting to be let out of Spam – which, by the way, you DIDN’T get put into this time.

      Love Dotty xxx

    • Dear Veggiewitch,

      Now I’m not one to blow my own trumpet as everyone knows, but in this instance YES I AM. I shall take a bow, methinks. ;-)

      Love Dotty xxx

  7. I may have stumbled upon that answer all by myself. It was an accident, undoubtedly. But my phone used to beep all day long telling me I had new e-mails, which told me that people I follow put up new posts. Gee whiz, I would think to myself, I am just following them, we aren’t married.

    • Dear lj,

      So do I, it’s what WordPress say to do. I’m keeping the follow up comment thing disabled in case it doesn’t.

      Love Dotty xxx

  11. Dear Dotty. I’d found this too and should have told you! But I can tell you that you could now delete your text just above this window that reminds us to untick!

    Dear Dotty,
    Thank you for posting this. Eventually I found it though it was right in front of me. I was happy after that!
    Love Dorothy
