I upgraded my forum the other day and nearky destroyed it.  Im not messing with it again until I have time off work to repair it when I break it again.  I'll follow your instructions then.  Thank you.

We have guest access disabled as my housemate believes robots will steal our identities if we don't so the rss feed doesnt work anymore.  I used it for that for that before my housemate got so paranoid.

it is cool and hope your housemate dont see this post but most Identity theft happens when you put legal and identifiable information in a bin without destroying it enuf more sources of Identity theft are from the place where you work and shops that ask for some info when you a shop card or home deliveries and even the postman can all be a sources of Identity theft so no point on getting paranoid just try to keep it as safe as you can with out the ott  Wink

I suppose I could run off email notifications.  I just need to figure out how to give my forum email access first.  This does feel like an old fashioned way of doing it in the age of smart phones though.  I guess next time I have a few days off work I'm going to have to look into how to get emails to work from my forum.


it may be old but it utilize one of the main items that makes a smart phone a smart phone  Wink also if your forum has Guest access as in Guests can see the forum then if you have rss on you can use a rss feed app to get updates from the forum if you need more help with a app you may want to post this here http://www.boardmod.org/yabb2/YaBB.pl?board=hacks or here http://www.carsten-dalgaard.dk/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?board=request and ask.

now to: to look into how to get emails to work from my forum

you will also have to check setting in your gmail as well under "Forwarding and POP/IMAP"

ok to start Gmail Problems sending mail

Are you able to log in to the Gmail web interface?
Visit http://mail.google.com to log in to Gmail. If you see a CAPTCHA (a security image with distorted letters), you'll need to log in before you can enable.

next:

Here's how to enable POP in Gmail:
1.Sign in to Gmail.
2.Click the gear icon in the upper right, then select Settings.
3.Click Forwarding and POP/IMAP.
4.Select Enable POP for all mail or Enable POP for mail that arrives from now on.
5.Choose what to do with your messages after your POP client or device receives them.

Although the radio button next to your selected option may not stay selected, Gmail displays the status next to 'POP Status:.' When you enable POP, your settings display 'POP Status: POP is enabled.'

If your POP settings are turned off, the status will indicate that POP is disabled.

next settings you will need:

1. Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server - requires TLS or SSL:
smtp.gmail.com
Use Authentication: Yes
Port for TLS/STARTTLS: 587
Port for SSL: 465

2. smtp login:
Account Name or User Name: your full email address (including @gmail.com or @your_domain.com)

3.Password:
your Gmail password

YaBB Advanced Forum Preferences and Settings > Email:

Smart phone notification support

I would love to see a smart phone app that can remain logged in to the forum and send notifications whenever new posts are made, or selected threads get updated or I receive a PM.  I'm happy browsing through the normal browser on my phone, but notifications would be very useful.
