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

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

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

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.
