Unseen Economy; A Retrospective Look At Shetlink Classifiedsclassifieds
Posted 01 January 2016 - 08:12 AM
That's all you see in the "latest classified" bit on the Shetlink homepage.
Yes, I'm ashamed to say curiosity got the better of me too.

Hi Joanne. If you click on your name in the top right of the screen there's a window that should appear with options including 'content I follow' where you can deselect anything you've subscribed to.

This almost sounds like you're "Subscribed" to a category in the Classifieds? i.e. subscribed to have emails sent to you when one is entered into a category or at the top level thus receiving one from every category entry.
Go to the Classifieds section and check whether a button at the top of the section has "Unsubscribe" on it (or whatever category you're receiving email from). If so you possibly by accident clicked on the "Subscribe" and not realised and are now getting an email from every category.
Also check here: https://www.shetlink...a=notifications<---- this is a section where you can add/remove preferences for notifications.
EDIT: I've blanket removed all notifications being sent to you from the classifieds section. Sorry that this has been a frustrating time for you.

Is it possible to have a D.I.Y. section, as it would save us from scrolling through all the current pages looking for bits and bobs?

Why does just about everything get listed under "Boats", regardless of whether it's a boat or not?

Do u have to pay to put stuff up
The classifieds are free apart from the accommodation for sale/rent and commercial/trades sections (we've got bills we need to pay )

When I have sold something I have made a small donation to Shetlink. It is only fair..

I had the same problem earlier ! I clicked on my user name and there was an option of "personal messenger" which I clicked on and it worked after that ! Good luck in case it was a coincidence !

Right Click and select "Open in new Tab" from the pop up menu ?

Strange issue with some nerdy things. Clicking on that link will now take you to your messages

While we're attending to nerdy things. Am I the only one having issues with the 'Notifications' button?
Works fine with XP and Firefox, put cursor on it, click, gives you the abbreviated list and cancels the overlaid red icon with the white numeric telling you how many you have. Same as it always has.....
Win10 and Firefox shows the icon fine, show the 'hand' icon when you put your cursor on it indicating its supposed to be clickable, but when you click on it nothing happens, its dead. The only way in is right click to get to the main notifications page, and even if you've been there and seen everything up to date, it doesn't cancel the red overlaid icon with the white numeric, it just keeps on racking up a higher running total whenever a new one comes in.

Not for me..
Tried it on a few different computers;
Laptop/Win 7 with IE, Chrome, and Firefox. Laptop XP with Firefox and IE, Desktop with XP, IE, Firefox, and Chrome. Desktop with Win 7 XP, Firefox, IE, and Chrome. Doesn't seem to work anymore.
Think that the PC/OS bit might be misleading and, would guess that the problem is probably a 'typo' on the web server server side of things.

You might need to press <ctrl>-<f5> together to ensure you pull down latest rather as local cache to get any fixes.
Apologies. Something went overboard in the night with scripts that are pulled from Google jsapi which we're now pulling locally instead.
@wheelsup. that screen you're taken to is an overarching pm area.
- My conversations
You land on "New" which shows various unread 'new' messages - rather as the usual inbox "My conversations" area where things might be lost over pages etc.
[...] it doesn't cancel the red overlaid icon with the white numeric, it just keeps on racking up a higher running total whenever a new one comes in.
^^ Yes, indeed. If you end up at the "New" page .. then when clicking on the new item it will remove the red notification.
This is like a brand new feature or at least just until we get a proper fix put in place.
