Suspicion that "Set Alert" in a reply not working. RRS feed

  • Question

  • When you write a reply in a thread, there is a check box below the text field for "Alert me".

    When you then press submit you should go back to the top of the thread with the menu line  over the first post in the thread no longer having as first item "Alert Me".

    What I have noticed more than once recently when posting replies to a thread in a SharePoint forum and having clicked on the Alert Me check box is that following the save the menu item "Alert Me" is still present.

    At first I thought I had forgotten to click on the checkbox, but now I am 100% sure that this has happened when I did click on the check box.

    The solution of course is to post a reply and then do Alert Me in the menu. But the software clearly isn't working at the moment as it should as regards to the check box.

     Later: The check box Alert here did work!

  • I have just had the same problem in the Suggestions for the Forums forum.

    Basically if I write a new post (one that starts a thread) then the Alert Me checkbox is working.

    If I write a reply to a post then the Alert Me checkbox isn't working and I need to use the menu item Alert Me.

    ("isn't working" = I can set it normally, but when the Submit is made "Alert Me" is still visible in the menu line showing that the check hasn't taken) (Windows 7 Ult + IE8)
