How to view more of my Dgrin forum notifications

When I arrived here on the forums today, I saw I had 20 notifications. (the little globe icon was lit up, etc.) However, I can't find a way to actually view them (in the latest FF browser, on Windows 10 laptop), beyond the 1st four or so that showed up when I clicked on the icon. I've run into this before, but don't think I've ever solved it except maybe by viewing on my phone instead. In other words, when I click on the globe icon, the 1st few notifications pop up in a column/bar towards the right of my screen, but I can find no way to scroll down through them to view the rest. If I use the scroll bar or roll the mouse, only the background page scrolls, not the notifications column. Any advice? I'm off to check now if I can view more on my phone this time.

    When I click the globe icon I see the first 5 notifications followed by the entry "All Notifications". If I click "All Notifications" I am taken to a scrollable list of notifications.

    Do you have the entry "All Notifications" on your list?

    If not, you can go to your profile on Dgrin. On the right side under your picture, you should see Notifications. Clicking that should take you to https://dgrin.com/profile/notifications (for your login).

    Update: My android phone doesn't allow me to see more than 5 notifications in a condensed list either. Only 5 show as basic notifications. If I click on "All notifications" below that condensed list, I get (instead of a condensed list) about 30 of my most recent notifications. There's no indication of which are actually new , but they're in an expanded version, showing each entire comment in a thread from which I've chosen to receive notifications. (not just the expected initial snippet).

    No, Denise, I don't have "all notifications" on laptop... only "Notification Preferences" & "Notifications" at the top of the column that pops up. Maybe the lack of vertical real estate on my laptop makes that "All Notifications" disappear? But it seems odd that I can't scroll down the pop-up column. I haven't checked it on my larger desktop screen. I'll check & see how it appears under my profile section as you suggested. Thanks.

    On your laptop, try running the browser full screen and reducing the magnification if necessary. You should see All Notifications at the bottom. If not, you can enter this URL to get to the same page: https://dgrin.com/messages/inbox

    Ok, another update: Going to my profile & clicking on "Notifications" brings up a more expanded view of only the 1st few notifications-- I mean that each post is shown in its entirety. Below that, if I instead click on "Discussions", a column appears with just the discussions I've taken part in, in a condensed view (not showing each entire post). And I can keep clicking on "more" to bring up more & more old discussions, basically more & more old notifications. Or I can click on each to see its expanded view. Weirdly, just to the left of that section, near the top of the Profile screen, the word "Discussions" brings up instead "Recent discussions happening on DGrin" which is an entirely different list, not just the ones in which I've participated or subscribed. It's a bit confusing. It should be called "Recent Discussions" That 1st Discussions section I described, under my profile photo, should be called "My Discussions" or "My Threads" to end some confusion.

    Richard, that URL brings up private messages, rather than notifications. Yes, I figured I could run full screen to solve this, if others are seeing "All Notifications" somewhere. But I sure don't want to do that each time I want to see notifications. I feel that the site should fix this so that the column can be scrolled, since that would be the expected behavior. I'm pretty sure it used to scroll at some point in new DGrin history.

    Ooops, sorry, I hit the wrong icon. Denise gave right URL above.
