notifications of replies to your posts. NEW INFO PAGE 2

Post by Pete » Sat Sep 06, 2014 9:15 pm

to get notifications of replies to your posts, go to your User Control Panel / board preferences / edit posting / check 'notify me upon replies...'

the default is 'no', so if you want notifications you'll have to turn 'em on

the last thing you have to do is click 'Subscribe topic" underneath any post you want to get notifications on

Seems no matter what I do, I still keep getting emails. How do I stop them?

Have you gone back into your User Control Panel and unchecked the box? phpBB claims that box has to be checked in order to get the emails.

there is SUPPOSED to be some detailed settings somewhere that let you customize what you get notifications for.

I'll read up on it some more but if it becomes too cumbersome I can disable the feature for now.

As admin, I got a blue billion emails lol

one more thing: at the bottom of each thread that you participate in, there is an 'Unsubscribe link you can choose to NOT get notifications. Again, I need to study this more to make sure I understand what is going on

Author Notes: (Just FYI for everybody so we can learn together)


Each user can choose between two ways for board watch to work: (1) send notification of the first post since the user's last visit and send no further notifications until the user revisits the site (analogous to the way forum watch and topic watch work) or (2) send notifications of all posts. In addition, each user can choose whether forum watch and topic watch work in the normal phpbb3 way (analogous to (1) above) or instead send notifications of all posts or replies in the subscribed forums or topics. The ability to choose between these two ways of working for boardwatch. forum watch and topic watch can be turned off in the acp.



This mod also slightly changes the wording of the regular phpbb3 notifications to let recipients know how to change their notification settings, and it changes the post links in those notifications so that they lead to the earliest unread post in the topic in question (which I think is a more logical destination than the most recent post in the topic).
