    Be sure to read the walkthrough.

    A couple additionals that I'm sure would otherwise get some questions:
    • Alerts no longer clear (get marked as read) all at once when hovering over the "Alerts" dropdown. The new behavior is that they clear one at a time upon actively clicking the individual alerts (exception: if there's a quote & a like to the same post, for example, then both of those will clear upon viewing that post. same goes for if you manually jump into the thread/post where the alert applied..basically, if you view it, then it's marked as read). This will take some getting used to, but it was intentional and took a decent amount of work to make happen. The historical behavior was always broken imo -- if you have 8 new notifications and want to see at a glance what they are and/or take action on *one* of them, then you suddenly lose your reminder that you have 7 other new notifications to check out. Keep the alerts you want to follow-up on later as unread.
    • A combined alert/inbox count on mobile (top right, in place of the solid red dot) isn't there due to a native XenForo bug.
    • Yes, it's 2 clicks to get to your alerts on mobile now.
    • Yes, Statuses & Featured Albums are not currently available on mobile. Technical limitation that will take some time to work through, but didn't want to wait potentially weeks longer to get this out to you guys.
    • Night theme is coming. It shouldn't take very long, but please don't ask for a specific release date. Apologies to your retinas for the time being.
    • Known bug that I'm working through:
      • if someone new follows you, then you'll receive an alert for it (as you always would), however, that alert doesn't get marked as read when clicking on it from the new Alerts dropdown... it's another XenForo native bug that I encountered, but there's a couple workarounds:
        • click the "Mark All As Read" link found at the bottom of the Alerts dropdown (desktop only) to clear it.
        • uncheck the "New follower" option in your Alert Preferences and you won't receive that alert at all anymore. The "fix" will be to uncheck this option for everyone once I figure out the query to run.

    log on more often and reply to your alerts

    ...also, you can use the "Mark All As Read" option in the dropdown (on desktop)
