    Thanks for taking the time to do that, 10.

    Being able to scroll will make it easy next time they accumulate.

    I understand all that the esteemed dream team of Chef and Dime have told me about notifications. When I have more unread notifications than will fit vertically on my browser screen, then the “mark all as read” doesn’t appear at the bottom of the list. Now that most of my notifications were magically rendered “read”, the yellow command does appear at the bottom.

    Aaaaack! I’ve got 396 notifications and no easy way to delete them all. I don’t use notifications, but can’t see where to turn them off. Can you clear them all?
    When I go to the notification bubble, there is no selection for “mark all read”. And the bulk actions are only for 25 at a time. Sorry, I’m either stupid or confused tonight!

    The list of notifications that appears under the bubble doesn’t scroll for me.

    • Yes. Go to your Read Notification page (use the drop-down menu from your avatar at the top left, then Notifications/Read). Scroll down to the bottom of the page and you’ll see a big black button labeled “Delete All Read Notifications”. Press it, confirm the deletion (which cannot be undone), and they’re gone. This does not delete unread notifications. You can mark all unread notifications read with the “Mark all notifications read” item in the drop-down box from the notifications bubble or using “Bulk Actions” on the Unread Notifications page (which you can also reach from the av…[Read more]

    • These are some screen shots for @dime. 319 unread notifications. You can now scroll down the list and mark everything read.

    • Process done. 0 for Notifications. I did this on an iPhone.

    • Trinity, you can now scroll down the list to get to the yellow “Mark all notifications read”. I did it on my iPhone. Before I had the same problem on not being able to scroll down.

      BTW, I mark 25 notifications at a time to mark yours as read by using the bulk method.

    The Bubble ones. I like the email ones. I don’t use the bubble ones, so they stack up and it takes a while to delete them until you have under 25. Wishing for a banner to get rid of all read or unread, no matter the number of them. Cheers!

    I don’t use or want notifications. Can’t find any way to turn them off.

    • Are you talking about the “blue bubble” notifications or email notifications?

    • Gosh—I’ll have to recalibrate my user interface preferences. I was thinking about getting rid of the E-mail notifications entirely because the in-band notifications https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In-band_signaling (the bubble and the drop-down) now duplicate the functionality of the E-mails, and allow you to individually follow them, clear them, or clear them en masse.

      From the drop-down from the bubble, there’s a yellow item at the bottom which will mark all notifications read. This takes you to the “Notifications Read” page where, by scrolling down to the bottom, you can delet…[Read more]

    No beef, just sass! It’s like fertilizer to him. Plus, I just can’t totally behave.

  • Trinity Waters posted a new activity comment 1 year, 4 months ago

    You missed the crux of this matter. If the Mark or Delete All Read is at the bottom of the popup, and if you have more than one page of notifications, then you never see it until you delete all but less than 25. Put the yellow options at the top. I now have 33, and will go check this out. If you hear nothing further, then…

    I have discovered that the “mark all notifications read” only appears if you have fewer than 25 unread. If that could be bumped to the top of the drop down, then it could be used no matter the number in one’s queue.

  • Trinity Waters posted a new activity comment 1 year, 4 months ago

    My experience in R land was that a backlog of notifications significantly slowed page loading. Max erased them and sped up my browsing on the site.

  • Trinity Waters posted a new activity comment 1 year, 4 months ago

    Will do. Danka!

    Update, now the mark all as read shows up in the drop down. Must be linked to the large number of my notifications.

  • Trinity Waters posted a new activity comment 1 year, 4 months ago

    Sure. Thanks, 10 Cents.

  • Trinity Waters posted a new activity comment 1 year, 4 months ago

    I don’t see the selection you mention, so there must be a bug.

  • Trinity Waters posted a new activity comment 1 year, 4 months ago

    The drop down menu when I hover over the icon announcing my 663 notifications contains no item such as “Mark all notifications read”.

  • Trinity Waters posted an update in the group Group logo of Bug ReportsBug Reports 1 year, 4 months ago

    How do I delete all my notifications? I’ve got well over 600 and only see a tool to delete 25 at a time.

    • At present, you have to delete them 25 at a time. That’s how WordPress/BuddyPress is designed.

      I was originally planning to add an item to the notifications drop-down menu to “Delete all read notifications”, but I decided it would be too dangerous, as one could easily click it by accident when intending to view a notification or mark all notifications read, and deleting notifications cannot be undone. What I’m currently thinking about is adding a button to the “Notifications Read” page labeled “Delete ALL notifications” which will perform the deletion only after the user confirms…[Read more]

    • Trinity,
      Please look at this post.

      Lovin’ the Color Coding in the Drop Down Menu


      If you are on a desktop or a tablet in landscape mode from the drop down list there is an option to “Mark all as Read” (In Yellow) This will clear the list. Since the 600+ is the number of unread items.

    • Ask, and it will be implemented.

      You can now delete all of your read notifications in one operation. Go to the “Read Notifications” page (this is where you’ll be taken after you use the “Mark all notifications read” item in the notifications drop-down list, but there are many other ways of getting there).

      Scroll down to the bottom of that page, and you’ll see a button with scary pink text which says, “Delete All Read Notifications”. Click it, and confirm when the “Are you sure?” dialogue pops up (this operation cannot be undone). All of your notifications marked read, not just…[Read more]

    • I see it now. I was only looking on the “Unread” page. After I clicked on “Read” I saw the new function at the bottom of the page. Thanks!

    • The drop down menu when I hover over the icon announcing my 663 notifications contains no item such as “Mark all notifications read”.

    • Trin, I sent you a message with a link to a page to delete your Notifications.
      Would you take a screenshot of the mouse overed drop down? Maybe there is a bug due to the number of notifications. Thanks.

    • I don’t see the selection you mention, so there must be a bug.

    • Do you want me to delete your Notifications for you?

    • Sure. Thanks, 10 Cents.

    • We need to track down why you aren’t getting that option in yellow in the drop down. Let us know if it is still a problem.
      I deleted your notifications.

    • Will do. Danka!

      Update, now the mark all as read shows up in the drop down. Must be linked to the large number of my notifications.

    • I also do not see anything in yellow. I have 633 notifications.
      I don’t mind having 633 notifications; I’m just offering the observation for those who manage such matters.
      Thanks very much for caring that Ratburger.org is a predictable and stable experience for the users. Hard work pays off.

    • Bubba, you have to delete or read those Notifications to get them off your list. I will put them on your read list to clear things for you.

    • I would suggest it would be good to have at the bottom of the Unread Page a “Mark All as Read” in about the same place as “Delete All Read” on the Read Page. I don’t know what would be easier to do.

      Trin, thanks for testing this out.

    • I didn’t write at the bottom of the popup but the bottom of the page. I was referring to the Notification page that you can get to from the “Greetings, Trinity Waters” drop down menu. This is the page where you delete or read 25 notifications at a time. Have you been to that page?
      I agree having it at the bottom of that popup would have no effect.

  • Trinity Waters posted an update in the group Group logo of Bug ReportsBug Reports 1 year, 5 months ago

    It’s always wise to start with caution when evaluating what I a may think is a bug, but FWIW:
    I added a link using the tool and in the post it’s plain text.
    When I click on my email link to a post, it goes to an Oops page.

    • We don’t automatically turn things that look like links into links. If you want to make something a link (even text which is the link itself), highlight the text, then click the link (looks like a link in a chain) icon and enter the URL you wish to link to in the box which pops up. Press the Return button and the link will be created.

      I have just done this to your post. The link will now be clickable.

    • >> When I click on my email link to a post, it goes to an Oops page.

      I’m not sure what you mean by this. When I click on the links to posts or comments in notification E-mails I receive they seem to work OK.

      Can you describe more precisely where you’re seeing the link that doesn’t work, and copy and paste the URL which resulted in the error page into the message?

      Thanks in advance.
