Disabling "Notify me when a reply is posted"

Post by becomeelite on September 23rd 2012, 6:20 pm

I have been getting MANY complaints from members, and members actually leaving my site and threatning to contact "authorites" for getting spammed emails whenever a reply is posted in a thread. It seems this option is automatically checked for every member, and not all of them want to take the time to go in to Profile and change it.

I need an easy way that i can disable or remove this option from the Administration Panel for all members. If i edit the template/code can i remove that option? Can someone show me and paste which code i need to remove and where it is located.

The forum is www.InformationKeptQuiet.com if you need to look at it to see the layout or type


Thank you, and hope someone can help me!

Hi,

Whenever creating a post or thread you have an option of notifying you when they reply or not. They don't have to go automatically to the Profile to change it. But that's their only option they have. So, in other words there is no other option.

But most people overlook that option since its usually way at the bottom under options, and then wonder why they get spammed emails and just get annoyed.

There must be a way to edit out that option in the code/template of the site itself so it doesnt even show up as an option.

Sorry there is not an option to turn it on or off for everyone. They will have to set it in their profiles.

What about removing the code for it though?

Like in another post i saw Sanket i think it was showing how to go in and remove the code for the Site Name part, so that it didnt show the Site Name at the top of your homepage by your logo, but it would still show the Site Name in emails.

I know there's a way to edit the template/code to remove the "notify when topic reply" option.

Like Slg & I have said, there's no other option for now. Maybe, within the future they'll be an option. Sorry.
