please note if you are testing this you need two users because it will NOT send an email to the person who started the thread. Either remove the last line of the query


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

or use two different users.

oops, i left a line of debug code in.

if you have already installed this, remove this line
echo $touser;
the code change had been updated so if you have not installed it yet don't worry.

i am not sure what you mean. Why would you want to send them every hour when they can be done instantly? by the sounds of it you want something more like the community bulletin thing made by Kier/tubedog

mail($touser[email],$emailsubject,$emailmsg,"From: \"$bbtitle Mailer\" <$webmasteremail>");

is the line that generates that and it is copied straight from the newreply.php code (which is where most of this code came from). I can't see how it can work in one place and not the other. sorry, not a clue.

Hi,

Very interested in this thread for user support purposes.

Will it email users subscribed to the Forum when there are additions to any of the existing threads

Will it email users if there are additions to the thread it has already notified them of?

I ask because I am interested in having users emailed if there is a new thread or if there are any additions to existing threads regardless of whether they have been previously notified but perhaps failed to check the Forum.

Many thanks

kevin

Hello,

I thought I would attempt this code hack myself, however I cannot locate the following in newthread.php

below the section //send email to moderators which ends with

}
}
}
}

as indicated by chrispadfield. Am I doing something wrong.

I have already created the two templates.


Regards,

Clayton

not quite sure how that will help as that edits the subject of the email not where it is from. Unless you have a linebreak in the subject template, that might make it not work.
