If this actually works from version to version of vb4 I will dance in the street. I've been using a hacked version of the old vb3 mod.

Problem is, I can't test it without uninstalling the hack which actually works, mostly.

It's got some options that you don't mention anything about. Does this one offer any of these?

Use mailqueue?

I think, that you imagine problem, which does not exists . I consider those options quite useless. Why should i add restriction to single subscribe option, if other one don't have those?

And yes, this mod uses mailqueue, according to general vb settings.

By the way, 3.8 mod doesn't use mailqueue because of programming bug. I haven't found vbmail_start() / vbmail_end() there. That causes huge count of SQL requests, if you have lot of forum subscribers.

The option to in/exclude forums is actually very important. I wouldn't want anyone subscribing to e.g. General. Remember, with shared hosting we have very low mail limits.

IMHO, that's not serious:

1. If your server is ok with notifications for new posts (not threads), it will be ok with this mod too.
2. If your server is weak - it's good idea to uprgade it.

A quick question about this mod. Does it just send a notification about a new post or can it also send the entire text of the new post?

I am looking for a mod to VB3.8 or VB4 that will allow users to subscribe to forums and receive daily digests or instant updates that include the new posts in that forum...

Thanks in advance,

Stephan

Thanks for this mod! Love it! I only wish it sent a notification of a new thread not only in the subscribed forum but in all child forums as well. Is there a way to add this feature?

The notification link is not correct on my system.
I get something that ends in: showthread.php?p=69

The built in admin panel notification gets: showthread.php5?51-Remember-DVDs-is-Break-room

I tried replacing:
$vboptions[bburl]/showthread.php?p=$newpost[postid]

In your intm_message with
$threadlink

from the admin phrase... but that doesn't display anything
***************
I got it to work by adding a 5 to the ".php?"
ex:
$vboptions[bburl]/showthread.php5?p=$newpost[postid]

I am a brand new Admin for a small forum of around 150 users. I am still getting the hang of the system. We are still in test mode with about 25 users.

I am using a new vb install running 4.1.2. I installed the product and have the choice for instant notifications in the thread subscription menu. However, I do not receive emails from the system when there is a new thread in the subscribed forum. The messages are not being trapped in my spam folder or by postini.

When I run email diagnostics, I get an email almost immediately.

Is there somewhere to adjust the settings of this product? Any suggestions?

The system is on Windows Server 2008 R2 and otherwise works fine. smtp server works as I get the diagnostic emails.

The mod seems to be working for the most part, but one problem I have with it-- and maybe subscriptions in general-- is that it will notify you about threads that haven't been approved yet.
