This only sends alerts on new threads, not replies to threads.

Even as beta, it should work fine if you just restrict it to the administrator user group so only you and your staff can test it out.

Hello,

Any chance you could post some instructions on how to put this extension to use? I've got it installed...now what? As an admin, I'd like to set everyone up who resides in a specific user group to somehow get "all new threads" as well.

I noticed that a few people around here are looking for a way to have specific groups receive an email notification every time there is a new thread. This could be a great way to make that happen.

Thoughts?

Thanks!

M

Go to your User CP, see the link for "Post Notification Setup".

As for getting an email whenever something is posted to a forum, this is already a feature of Vbulletin. Go to the forum in question, click forum tools, then click subscribe.

Built in, though, the only option are daily or weekly digests.

This hack lets you get instant emails:

...and AFAIK it's not based on usergroup permissions.

Great idea.
I am forced to be very conscious of server loads when adding new features lately. Anything about this addon that could cause increased loads on busy forums? Keeping in mind that I would only have about 50 or so users with access to this out of the almost 20,000 registered users.

Sure, that's fine if you as an individual want to subscribe. What I need to be able to do is force certain usergroups to be subscribed to threads. This way, I don't have to send the "forum post notification" emails to a redirect that then sends to everyone on the list. It's way too tough to manage. Anyway, that's what I think would be cool. If you could somehow as an Admin, change the subscription settings for all your usergroups.

Thanks!

I have been monitoring on a similar sized site and haven't seen any noticeable increase in load.

No real code gets executed except upon a threads initial post, so the only way I could see it affecting load would be if your site has a new thread (not reply) posted every 3-4 seconds.
