Does this subscribe "new users" or can I specify it to a different usergroup as well/instead?

As far as legality....

When users register they agree to the terms, just add it in the terms of service

"You acknowledge that you may be auto subscribed to certain forums"

Done...

I'm not sure what you're asking. It doesn't have anything to do with usergroups really. What it does is, when a new user registers it automatically adds a subscription for them.

This is exactly what we need except that we need it instant email notifications and not only once a day. We have only about 400 users and our board is internal. Our company has an internal policy that all users must be notified of EVERY single new thread started and ANY updates to every thread thereafter. If the users wants to Opt-out, he can by clicking an "unsubscribe" link. But this only sends out the notifications once a day or once a week. We need it to be instant.

Is there a way to modify this addon to do just that?

Unfortunately there's no easy way to modify this addon to do that, because "instant email" isn't one of the choices when a user subscribes to a forum. I think you'd need to do something like create a plugin that runs when a thread is created and adds a subscription to that thread for every user in the database (or maybe every user who belongs to a certain user group).

Ok! Thanks for the reply...

Yes, a plugin would be needed then but the group option sounds perfect! I could just add all the users to a group but now to find someone to build the plugin

Hi,
I know this thread is quite old, but maybe it comes back to life... For letting users choose "instant email notification" on forum subscriptions, I use this one: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=248617
But users still have to subscribe to every single forum manually.

When using this addon and your addon at the same time, could it be possible to modify your addon so "instant email notification" would be available for automatic forum subscriptions as well? Or is it still the same problem concerning instant email notification you mentioned above?

Thanks for your help
Sam

OK, I'm attaching a version of the xml that just adds "Instant Email Notification" to the list of options for this mod. I looked at that other mod and it looks like if you have that installed and you choose "Instant Email Notification" in the options for this mod, users should get instant email notification of new threads (but I haven't tried it). You should just need to install this and choose "Overwrite" when installing.

Just to be clear (for everyone else), if you do not have this mod installed: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=248617 and you choose "Instant Email Notification", the users won't get any notification of new threads.

Thanks for your quick reply! I tested it on vb 4.2.2 and it seems to work. Also the update script for existing users works for me, choosing "1", which seems to be the value for instant email notification in your update, for notification method.
After hours of research how to solve this problem of combining autosubscribe and instant email notification you really made my day!!!

One last question, is there a way to notify users about replies without them having to subscribe manually to the thread?

Hi @Kh99 please is possible to do something more powerful like this?
The mod now send a notification only for one forum id mentioned for each email.
So adding some forums the mod will send too much mails to the users and this is not good because the user don't like this.

Better also to make the titles of the threads in bold if is possible.

Apologies if I've missed the little post within this thread that answers this question but: I would like to set up a situation where every member is auto-subscribed to the Announcements Forum; not necessarily to receive emails (not too sure that's working in any case!), but to see the subscription within their UserCp.

So it woulb be good if the plugin let you add more different forum on more different usergroup.

For example:

(1° instance)
New users must be automaticaly subscribed to forum x and y


(2° instance)
Moderators must be autmaticaly subscribed to all the threads in a private moderator section


(3° instance)........

ecc.

In this way would be great.

Do you think is it possible?

I know this is an old thread but just want to let you know that it's working with vbulletin 3.6.8. I mean new user automatically registered to new forum but the only problem is the user does not automatically add to all threads already exist in the forum nor new thread in that forum
