Just today using the Forum on my phone, a bell symbol in a red circle has appeared on the bottom right of my screen. It floats, so is always there when I scroll up and down. When I tap it, it says "subscribe to notifications". Pretty sure I'm already getting all the alerts, but I tapped to agree anyway. But it won't go away!

I assume this may be a new feature - is there a way to make it disappear? It's sort of in the way.... It also sits right on the (I think) rather useful "up" arrow that can take you back up to the top of a screen or thread. So, really in the way and a bit annoying.

I've got the same bell, except mine tells me I have blocked notifications, which I have not. Then a message comes up to "follow these instructions to unblock." But there are no instructions. :rolleyes:

As a newbie I am not totally familliar with all the features of this site. However I do agree that this floating symbol is a nuisance! Please, someone, anyone, help me to switch it off!!

This was me trying something out... it should be gone now.
Thanks Ivar! :):) I don't like to discourage anyone trying new things - always good to try! Thank you for all you do for us on this wonderful forum - it always cheers me up on our soggy southern winter days, with or without red buttons!! :D

Thanks, @ivar ! I thought I must have inadvertently hit something and turned notifications off myself -- an entirely reasonable assumption given my techno-ineptitude. Many thanks for all you do to keep this wonderful forum going and easy to use.:)

Ivar is a really nice person. I had the pleasure of meeting him when I completed my Camino. Yes, thank you Ivar. You are one of the Camino 'blessings'.
