Email notification of new topic?
I've looked and looked, but I can't seem to find a way to email users when there is a new topic posted to a board.  (It's what the client wants.)  Can someone point me in the right direction?  It seems as though that option exists, because I have found where to modify the "Notification Email (Board-Level, New Topic).

Thank you.

Re: Email notification of new topic?
The users themslves must subscribe to a Topic or Board.

When they click 'get notification' (on topics) or 'notification' (on boards) , the Notifications subscriptions are updated in their User Control Panel.  then, bingo they get mail.

In case you are wondering,  there is no way to 'force notifications' for two reasons -- many might consider gettting notifications on 'everything' to be spamming, and most importantly -- that kind of use would drown a good-sized board with SMTP processing.

Good Luck

Thank you for the help.  It makes perfect sense that this would be within the user's control.  I appreciate the help.

email users when there is a new topic posted

the best way to do what you are looking for is to make a Member Group for that topic / topics then lock that board to that Member Group then members wanting to post to that board will have to be a member of that Member Group and then you can ues Email Your Members from admin for just that Member Group to send the Emails

hope this helps  Wink
