Would it be possible to see notifications (the number in up-right corner) only when someone has quoted your post?

Thanks ;)

Yep, that's on my list todo, it's one of the missing options :)

Nice to know.
EDIT: THANKS!

This is now implemented. Feel free to turn it on/off whenever you like in the settings.

I don't know if this is broken or if i've dome something wrong, i've been just quoted here:
https://www.gamingonlinux.com/articles/retroarch-is-getting-hardware-video-decoding-manual-content-scanning-and-more.15521/#comments

...but received no notification.

Odd, it's there in the database. Can you send me a shot of your notification page?

Sorry for the late answer, here, it is blank:

Found the problem heh, my bad.

The notification system was only original for comments, then it got expanded to cover likes and quotes and a few places didn't take that into account if you had it turned off for comments and ended up showing nothing.

Should now be solved!

Suddently, i've 22 notifications about someone replying to the same thread, who quoted me, who liked my comments... everything :)

-edit
after removing them all, now my notification page says :"You have zero :(", while in the shot i posted this morning, that message was missing too.

-edit
Thanks!

Yeah sorry about the missing notifications, won't happen again now.

I'm still tweaking a few areas to ensure they don't send comment/forum reply notifications if you're subscribed to an article/forum topic and you have comment notifications turned off (some people only want emails or to follow from their list in the UserCP without any notification).

Turns out I never actually finished hooking up the forum to the notification system either, so I just did.

I wonder how many others were hit by this little oversight...
