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.

Yes, it does. It's very much like that other modification with some additional optimisation and options.

Thanks for the reply RedTyger. I did indeed find the newthreadsub phrase, and used the variables to make the email subject more verbose, namely:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

I noticed this doesn't sends out the subscription email to the actual creator of the thread (even if they are subscribed to the forum...) which is smart and very cool.

I like this a lot, thanks for the excellent mod.

One thing about forum subscriptions though, it's not intuitive how to UNSUBSCRIBE. You can only do it from the UserCP. Wouldn't it make sense that for subscribed forums, this menu changed to say "Unsubscribe from this Forum" -- just like it works for Threads?


Is that something this hack could incorporate? I hope you like my suggestion.

The version check hack is reporting the wrong version (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=133366). It reports 1.01 when we downloaded and installed the 1.02 hack from here last night on a fresh vb install.

Thanks, fixed it. It makes no difference but you can use the new zip if you want.

By posting he's probably just "subscribing" to the thread. As a way of keeping tabs on it, since he's interested. Some folks do that instead of using Thread Tools, for some reason.

this looks great!

This is one step closer to the instant post email feature found in Yahoo! groups. I am trying to port a Yahoo group to vB, and that is the biggest selling point for the existing membership base. They love getting those emails.

This is *almost* exactly something I need. Is there a way to make the emails compile for hourly new thread updates? So hourly an email goes out to usergroup showing the new threads?

I'd be willing to pay for a mod of this mod that would allow listserv behaviour like a Yahoo! group. Email notification of all new posts by those who request that feature. Profile checkbox or something.
