= 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.

Does this work for replies from the Quick Reply box or only from New Reply? and also if any previous posts are edited does this counts that too?

Thanks

This modification only enables notification for brand new threads. Replies are already dealt with by the default vBulletin settings.

I added this feature to just one forum, however now the threads within there all have 2 entries for "Instant Notification". How can I fix that?

Please click install so you can receive update notifications. This has been fixed, download the zip file and reupload the plugin.

There is a problem with this and the Vboard Newer version. I get a BD error when someone wants to post, and here it is
==============================================================
Database error in vBulletin 3.6.5:

Invalid SQL:

SELECT email, username
FROM user
WHERE userid IN ();

MySQL Error : You have an error in your SQL syntax. Check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near ')' at line 3
Error Number : 1064
Date : Wednesday, March 14th 2007 @ 03:20:43 AM
Script : http://www.xxxxxxx.com/Ss/newthread....stthread&f=324
Referrer : http://www.xxxxxxx.com/Ss/newthread....ewthread&f=324
IP Address : xx.xx.xx.82
Username : Someone
Classname : vb_database

==========================================================

I edited options right after I installed it, and set the member groups that i wanteed to get instant notifications about any topic posted, but when its enabled this happens, when not enabled, its ok to post.

Any Ideas?

It should be fine, but if you have a really huge board doesn't it take forever to actually post the thread? Even with a small mailing list it stalls quite a bit, you might want to look at a different solution.

I like that this has Admin options; thanks for sharing! Does it allow you to change the email subject and body via phrases too, like this older similar hack did?
