    Thank you for your response.
    I have all the boxes checked in Preferences and Alert Preferences and I have not been receiving email notifications of gallery comments. I do have many Alerts.

    Hmm...The only way I know to get email notifications is
    1. Watch a thread or gallery or forum. Then you can select email notifications.
    or
    2. Automatically watch, and get email notifications which you can do in your preferences. But that will send anything you comment on in the gallery too!

    You could individually watch your layouts, and choose email. That might be the easiest?

    Great question @DigiGrace I've never been able to figure out how to get email notifications on my own layouts either. :giggle I'm going to try to remember to "Watch Media" on my layouts now and see if it works. :) It used to just automatically email you the comments on your layouts, but then we had a huge upgrade on the forum here a few years ago and that changed. I didn't really care too much because all the upgrades were so awesome! :agree

    Courtney, thank you for your response and screenshots.
    I couldn't find the Watch Media on my gallery layout.

    I unchecked the boxes to automatically watch and receive email notifications in Preferences.

    I don't need to receive email notification of gallery comments.

    I think this forum system is so good at notifying us, we don't need email notifications. I've gotten so irregular about checking my email I'd see the forum notification before email notifications anyway. I just log in at TLP most mornings (and often another time or two later in the day) and look in the upper right corner and see notification of any watched thread action, gallery comments, or tags directed at me.

    @bestcee So the answer to seeing an alert that there's a comment on a layout is to do that black box form for each layout? That's easy!

    No problem! Here's another screenshot for you. After you upload your layout, you can see it in your gallery.

    Once you click on the watch media, you should see the black box:

    Let me know if you need more help.

    If you want an email, yes.
    If you just want an alert in your notification panel here at The Lilypad, you can use the black box, or even easier. OPen your Alert Preferences:

    Then, scroll down to Gallery. I like to be notified of likes as well as comments, so I checked both. Okay, really I just left the whole thing checked. LOL! The "Mentions you" is nice when you comment on someone else's layouts.: Alerts comments.PNG

    I still don't get emails when I individually watch my own layouts. I have both alerts and emails checked--I get an alert but never an email.

    Send me a conversation with your email address. It's possible your ISP may not be delivering them. I can check on it for you.
