In progress How to notify members of a new post

Post by fightforgarran on February 6th 2012, 2:58 am

I did go through FAQ and Tricks etc, but could not figure out a way to send an automatic email to members once a new post is posted. Could anyone help please? Crying or Very sad

The member has to set it up in his/hers profile:
Profile > Preferences
Always notify me of replies : Yes

Thanks. But I meant how to send automatic emails to members every time I post a new topic - not the replies from the members.

There is no option for that in the administration panel. Each member has to set it up in their profiles or Start Watching Forums and Topics.

I can not see the option of "watching forum" in the profile (logged in as a member)

The Watch Forum button is in each forum at the bottom.

Yes, the 'watch forum' feature is your best bet. Wink

Members must do this themselves and there is no other way of making it so that emails are sent to them every time you create a new topic.
