Is there anything the community can help with?
The mystery of this website, oh my! Awhile ago, I posted independent posts and could not find them days after posting them. However, there was a Wyze community regulator (?), that said he was able to find my posts by clicking on my screen name. That didn’t help me find my independent posts that were allegedly posted. Then I posted in direct response to someone asking a question and was able to find those posts rather easily.
The next problem that is driving me nuts, is how do you erase those notifications that are listed under your personal icon ( when you press the little circle that would have your picture in it, if one wanted a picture of themselves in it). Here’s the thing, I not only want to be able to delete old notifications, but I would also like to determine what I get notified about. I already made a visit to ‘my account’ settings, and it didn’t really make any sense to me since I don’t know how all of this works, to begin with.
It would be nice to have very basic instructions on how to utilize the forums, what the different commands are meant for, and how to communicate effectively via the forums and private discussions. How do you delete old ‘discussions’ ?
Currently, after hitting the reply button to the original poster, then typing this post, I do not see any button at all that says ‘post’, in order to post this reply. So, I have copied what I typed and will hit a couple buttons, to see what happens. If I loose this info that I have already typed while trying to figure out how to post…
Hi @b4ornot The little circles under your “Profile Icon” are items you are tracking. You can change those by clicking on your “Profile Icon” (the B) which presents a pull down menu.
Go there to “Preferences” then "Notifications were you can select how and why you are notified.
On the bottom of this thread there is also means to select amount of Notifications for this thread. You can’t delete it but you may select “Muted” which means “You will never be notified of anything about this topic, and it will not appear in latest.” There are three other selections as well. How it switches is defined in how you set your Profile as stated above.
I guess you figured out how to Post. Here is a good place to start: The Community Guidelines. (Wyze Community Guidelines)
will work on it… thx for the info!
The forum software is “Discourse”. Here’s a basic guide:
Discourse also has interactive new user and advanced tutorials. Please see instructions in 1st post here:

I just want to say that my hat is off to you forum mavens and mods.
The amount of derp and truthfully ignor-stupid comments and post I see in some of these topics makes me want to ban/delete many of the users.
You all are good people with a good sense of what is good and not good in a forum.
Thanks for doing what you do.
I just TRIED to find an answer to a Outdoor Cam problem…
I was surprised and discouraged to see a topic beginning with the posts OVER A YEAR AGO and hundreds and hundreds of posts to wade through to (maybe?) find something helpful!
MOST if not ALL reasonable forums SORT the posts with the MOST RECENT FIRST - because that is where the latest info can be found and a recent possible FIX for the problem.
I suggest that you make this either an option or default for these forums- else they are likely useless to me.
It’s good forum software, the best I’ve seen. Click the page count that’s always on your lower right, and use Jump To with a large number to skip to the bottom. You can scroll up from there.
You can also just use that scrollbar.
In addition, you can use the search tool in the upper right corner. If you select the “search this topic” box you’ll be able to search posts in the topic you’re viewing.
It would be great if there was a simple toggle to let you change the sort order from oldest first to newest first.
The forum platform we use (Discourse) doesn’t have the ability to sort newest on top. However, if you click the latest time at the bottom of the scroll bar to the right, it will jump you right down to the bottom where you can read up for reverse chronological order.
I really appreciate the Forum, but agree that it is hard to find up to date posts in one place
Is there an “ignore” feature on this board?
Think this through -
IF I knew how to ignore YOU I wouldn’t have posted
And welcome back.
Ouch! You didn’t say it was gonna hurt…
If I try to reply to a topic or a comment of a community member who is ignoring me, does the system prevent me from doing so and/or inform me that I’m being ignored?
Did a little research on Discourse forums and the complexity of this subject exceeds my interest. Here’s a simple statement that summarizes:
No, you can’t fully block someone on Discourse… the most extreme action a normal user can take is an ignore (an ignored person can see your content, but you can’t see theirs). -Feb 2021
I will assume that an ignored user is not made aware that another user is ignoring them, and is not prevented from replying to their topics or comments.
Since 2-3 days, I have a bug with the forum. If I click on my avatar, top right, I have nothing in the menu. Same thing if I click on the bars. To have these works, I have to go at the top of a thread or the forum. The issue is on safari, chrome, discourse…
