E-Mail Mods when post on site

Post by Wing6704 on January 29th 2013, 9:31 am

Hi all,

Forum is going well, is there an option to email moderators when anyone posts on the forum? I can't seem to find any options, only on post creations.

Any help would be great.

What do you want to email the mods?

Sorry. I mean, I am the Admin of the forum, but the Mods would like to receive E-Mail when ever any post is placed on a forum, rather than manually searching the threads to see if anyone has put a recent post up. Because they work, they don't have time to keep checking, but can respond when post/questions are asked.

So I'm looking for a setting in the admin panel to activate E-Mail notifications for moderators whenever a post is posted by a member.

Important note: This is an E-Mail to notify of new/any posts, not ones that they are actively responding to already.

They can watch the topic. But, there is no such thing for emailing every time someone posts.

Hi,

I will have them watch the forum threads, and this way it will alert them. On some forums it will email them the response within the post on their email. Is this possible with phpbb3?

At the moment it will only send them a link to the thread - but not it's contents. Is this possible? I know yahoo forums do this. Final question. Smile

Hi Sanket - and everyone else.

I have been doing a bit of digging around and I found a mod for email notifications for PHPBB3 called Boardwatch.

It sounds perfect for what I need - constant badgering by email when people post. Currently if you watch a forum, it won't send any further emails until that topic has been visited, which my boss says is no good Sad

As I have a Forumotion PHPBB3 site how would I go about installing this? Can it be done. As this question has evolved slightly is it best I post this in the coding section?

Thanks again. I'm pretty much sorted on my list I've been given and this is the last thing.
