So here’s my notifications from MainWP for 2 days:
I can’t see the important emails through all the notifications I’m getting. It’s really out of hand.
I thought we had dealt with it, but because the domain monitor recognizes all of the domains as expired for Korea it’s still sending me notifications that they’re all expired. Then the lighthouse does not need to notify me of the results every single day.
How do we start reducing the emails that our system is putting out?
The Lighthouse extension currently doesn’t have its own notification frequency setting and will follow the Daily Update Frequency setting in the MainWP Settings > General Settings page.
The Domain Monitor version 4.0.1 should be sending notifications based on its Automated domain checks frequency setting. Did updating to 4.0.1 not fix that issue for you?
As always, please feel free to make suggestions about notification emails or any other topic on our feedback site. That way, others can vote for it, letting us know which features our users want the most.
I’m assuming this frequency is only for the scan itself and not connected to the notification?
It’s odd because it seems like in the last week, Lighthouse is emailing me scans every day for all my sites, but it didn’t used to. I was about to write about this issue myself because it wasn’t previously the case. Now it emails all my sites every day.
Yes, we’ve gone through this haven’t we? I did update and thought I had solved the problem but apparently the notifications go out daily for expired domains no matter what you do. Or domains that it perceives as expired I guess. So problem not solved.
And changing the daily update frequency won’t help me. I wanna get them once a week or once a month not daily - or 12 times a day.
So as we know there was already something about this in the feature requests for domain monitoring frequency. Give this a bump everyone!
just keep hoping that someone else keeps bumping it up. And hopefully you’ll address ALL the notification frequencies when you get to that one. We should all be trying to keep the “noise” out of our lives.
At least the domains without a known expiry date (resulting in the timestamp “0” or date 1-1-1970 0:00 UTC (or something like that)) should be excluded from notifications. That’s not even a feature request but a bug fix.
And as many TLDs can’t be monitored yet, they should show N/A or something, not creating alerts as they are useless by definition. For me it was the reason to completely disable the Domain Monitor extension, because most of my domains are .nl or .be, which are still unsupported and with 230+ sites it would definitely be seen as spam.
I just disabled the Lighthouse Notifications within SETTINGS > EMAIL SETTINGS > LIGHTHOUSE - manage and change to disable. No more emails for lighthouse. I don’t do anything with the LH reports anyway, and leave that up to clients to see if they want additional optimizations, in which case I can assist on a project basis.
You may follow our Beta Testing Phase & even pitch in with the testing if you would like too! If you have not already done so, feel free to test out the Beta versions. This will definitely help us gage if we hit the mark on any pain points that may be currently present. All current bugs / updates / fixes are listed as found and handled during this phase & within any release notes.
