= New Thread Notification =


Description

Very simple, it adds instant email notification for forums. If you are subscribed to a forum using instant email notification, whenever a new thread is posted you will be sent an email containing the details and the thread text.


Options: (AdminCP > vBulletin Options > New Thread Notification)

Enable new thread notifications?
Choose Yes to enable instant email notification for new threads.

Allow new thread notification for Usergroups:
Enter the IDs of the usergroups you want to allow to subscribe to instant new thread email notifications, separated by commas. (i.e. 1,2,3)

If you only want to exclude usergroups instead of including them, leave this blank to allow everyone to subscribe to instant new thread notifications except those listed below.

Do NOT allow new thread notification for Usergroups:
Enter the IDs of the usergroups you want to exclude from subscribing to instant new thread email notifications, separated by commas. (i.e. 1,2,3) Leave blank to not exclude usergroups.

Allow new thread notification for Forums:
Enter the IDs of the forums you want to allow subscribing to instant new thread email notifications, separated by commas. (i.e. 1,2,3)

If you only want to exclude forums instead of including them, leave this blank to allow instant new thread notifications in every forum except those listed below.

Do NOT allow new thread notification for Forums:
Enter the IDs of the forums you want to exclude from subscribing to instant new thread email notifications, separated by commas. (i.e. 1,2,3) Leave blank to not exclude forums.

Use mailqueue?
Choose Yes for new thread notifications to use mailqueueing as per your settings (Recommended for all except very low traffic forums). Choosing No will bypass mailqueueing and send all emails instantly.


Installation Instructions:
1. Go to AdminCP > Plugins & Products > Manage Products > Add/Import Product.
2. Upload the new_thread_subscription_xxx.xml file.
Done!

To subscribe to new thread notifications just subscribe to a forum as normal. The new option has been added to the list.

I'm down to:

Bug with usergroup posting permissions
Conflicts with thread subscription and forum subscription
Better interface to add/remove/modify forum subscriptions

Then it'll be ready for beta

Has anyone fully solved this?

Our forum also would greatly benefit if the Admin could simply take a list of current users and

1. switch their current forum subscriptions to Instant Email. (we've installed the mod, and it works well.)

2. easily subcribe current users to all (or some, as dictated by the Admin) forums to receive Instant Email Notification

3 And if there was a way for new users to automatically be defaulted to Instant Email Notification for all (or some, as dictated by the Admin) forums.

Has anyone fully, or partly, solved these yet?

Thanks.

I too would love to have a hack to use vbulleting exaxtly like a mailing list!

A user subscribes to a forum and gets all the content of each new posting & get delivered instantly, no more clicking on a link to be able to get another email...

So please keep up the work!

The reply by e-mail features is available discus 4 pro at discusware.com. So there must be also a working solution possible for vB...

So we have a massive interest in a mod for a mailing-list like behaviour of e-mail notifications.

What is the current status quo?

I would be willing to pay also for this mod, I am sure others too.

If you just take the list out of this thread so far, who said they want to have this mod and all those people contribute, it must be easy to finance, right?

So look to the quotes a attached, so you know who could be a co-financer of this mod:

We moved from Yahoo! groups as well and the only nit-pik my users have is the fact they don't get an email of their own posts even to subscribed threads. They originally missed the 'ease' of posting by email as well but they got over it :wink:
*runs off to install this hack*

Is that possible with this?

I actualy have a working alpha script that interacts with the forums just like yahoo groups.

The email posts look like crap, and I'm currently working on the preg matches to clean that up. But I'm in the alpha already.

Perhaps we should get together and see what we can come up with?

I've got the email catch working, cron job runs every 10 minutes.

For forums that are enabled for the email integration and that a user has subscribed to when a new thread or new post is posted from the forums, an email is sent.

From email, a user can post a new thread, or replies to one of the emails they receive.

When the cron runs every 10 minutes, it'll grab those emails post them, and email the user the post just as if it had been posted from the forum.

Completely interacting just like yahoogroups

Just gotta clean up the install and stuff so a noob can install it, and clean up the emails a TON. Damn line breaks are driving me nutz on that

I've been on vacation since 5/19, just got back in town yesterday. I'm hoping to have a beta version out in a few days.

No guarantees as I to have a few things on my plate to take care of after being out of town for 10 days

I just need to package it up and make sure I have all the steps in the install instructions correct.

I can't sell the mod as the skeleton came from Colin F's code which he asked I release it for free here, and it also incorporates Red Tygers code in a small part of the mod.

But contributions will be appreciated once I get the beta released

Thumbs up Instant Notification of Everything, by a per forum basis.

I'd like this, but on a per forum basis.
I'd like to have one forum that is this mass notification scenario. Not all forums.

Please sign me up for the beta. Thank you.

Hi, I was just wondering if there has been any progress made on this? I'm sure you have much more pressing things to be doing, but I'm eagerly (as I'm sure lots of people here are) awaiting this new mod

cheers

I have a few things I have to do for the not-for-profit site I'm working on that pushed up on the priority list. Once I have those done I'll send out a beta Unfortunately, the code for pre-registering for an event at the end of august is a higher priority then finishing the mailing list mod , but it shouldn't be much more then another week.

I have had no contact from the developer despite repeated attempts. It is my theory that he was abducted by aliens.
