How to receive Notifications of new items

If you want to always be notified by email, PM or via a "Notification" (direct on the forum) of replies to topics you've posted in or of new PMs, go to "Settings". Click on "Notification Options" on the right in "Settings" where you will see various options. You can also directly go to your Notification Options in the main menu at the top, under Settings.


"Notification List" in the options means it will alert you via the forum to anything you've asked to be notified of, so that you can be immediately notified whilst viewing the forum. You can find this "Notification List" in the little icon with a Bell icon in it, in the user bar at the top right of all pages where your user name shows. When you get new notifications, a little number will show next to this icon. If you click on the Bell icon when there's no number in it, it will give you a link to old notifications.

Note - notifications older than 3 months are automatically deleted.


Added info - As from August 2012 (following the upgrade), new members are now set to always automatically receive immediate notifications by email of replies in any topics they start or take part in. You can change this by going to your Notification Settings as described above.

About Us

Founded in 2004, MS People UK is a community website and discussion forum by and for people with Multiple Sclerosis as well as for friends, families, supporters and those interested in this disabling condition.

If you’re newly diagnosed or want to ask about possible first symptoms, or if you’ve had Relapse Remit, Secondary or Primary Progressive MS for some time, a welcoming group of fellow MS sufferers is here to chat with you about MS symptoms, diagnosis and treatments.

The atmosphere is friendly whilst being compassionate, supportive and caring. Members also post about a variety of subjects not related to MS, as well as share jokes, talk about their hobbies, have fun, and more.

The MS People Forum is not responsible for advice or information supplied by members. We suggest you seek medical advice before trying anything.
