= 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.

update:

the bug still exists, but there is a workaround until this bug is fixed:

In ACP/vboptions/newtheradnotification/

There is another field for entering usergroups, which shall be excluded from this feature:

Do NOT allow new thread notification for Usergroups:
If you leave the first field of my last posting empty and only enter here the UG that shall not get this feature, it suddenly works.

But still this bug should be fixed.

Any word on fixing this mod so that it properly respects users that are being Moderated so that it doesn't immediately email out new threads started by a Moderated user?

Thanks.

Strange behavior

Hello I have used this mod for about a year and all works well, except for now it seems to send a notification only for certain forums and intermittently. I have checked all my settings and all seems to be in place. I have not upgraded VB and still use: VB version: 3.6.7 PL1.

I use this internally in my company and until yesterday it never game me any issues. Any advice on how I can get the Add-in to work like before? Should I be looking for something specific in order to determine any problems? Should I uninstall then reinstall it? Itís been sitting on the same server and nothing has changed on that end either. Thanks in advance for any assistance.

I just installed it on 3.8, and it seems to be working fine. I haven't tested every aspect of it, yet.

Issues with vB 3.8.2?

I recently upgraded my vB install from 3.6 to 3.8.2, and now this plug-in is no longer sending any instant notifications. I still get notifications as the forum "email addrss to notify", so email services are working. I have no restrictions by usergroup or by forum. And I have said "No" to mail queue (we have a low volume forum and I had thought it might be a queue issue). I'm not sure where to look for a solution. My users really liked the instant email notification. Any suggestions?

Couple questions.

1. Does this mod work on 3.8.3.

2. Is there a way to make it notify for ALL posts in a thread, not just the first post on each new thread?

I dunno about 383; it should. One way to find out. But once a thread is created, vbulletin already lets you subscribe to it.

3.8.3 - Installed fine.

- Removed my existing notifications.
- Enabled Instant for forums
- Posted new thread as different user
- No notification has come and it's been over 5 minutes.

How can I find out the error / fix this ?

Do you intend to make this compatible with 4.0? This mod really helps me and my business. VB is not making this feature a part of 4.0.

This mod was working great for a while. Today, however, I noticed that Forums no longer are offering the "Instant notification by email" option when Subscribing. I have tried uninstalling and re-installing the NTN mod. Nothing changes.

How can I verify the plug-in code is actually loading into the base code?

This is vBulletin 3.6.5, and NTN version 1.02.
