Chapter 8. Notifications
Your website can send you and your members lots of information to help everyone
know when certain events have occurred. The MANAGE NOTIFICATIONS control link allows
you to select which items to tell you about and which ones to tell your members
about.. This keeps you in the loop when someone comments or rates on your site,
or responds to your Classifieds postings and more.
Click the MANAGE NOTIFICATIONS control link.
Once you have clicked the link you will see the following screen.
