Solved Can I get an e-mail for all new posts?

Post by DaG262 on May 2nd 2011, 9:36 pm

Well, as the title and description state, I would like to be notified any time anyone posts anything.
I am an admin on our forum and should have all permissions the forum allows.

Can I squeeze in another question?

I don't seem to be able to give people access to the different directories/folders.
I go into Users/Groups, click the user in question, go to the bottom and choose
"Member" from the drop-down box. Then I go to the Permissions tab and choose
"select all" and then un-select a few boxes they shouldn't have access to.

Then I save. Is that right?

I'm sorry if I shouldn't have asked the second question here. Please advise and I
won't do that again.

I'm sorry if this has been asked. I have looked it up more than three times with
different key words and never found it, though I didn't look into every page.

1. You will see some link that says start watching forum. Click that for each section. You can also do that in a topic by clicking watch this topic for replies. This is located at the bottom or top.

2. General // Categories & Forums // Permissions

I believe the first problem is resolved. I started watching everything. I wish there were a way to just "Watch all," but whatever.

I assume the second issue will work. I don't get the difference in permissions from what I was doing to what I was directed to do,

but I will follow the instructions offered above next time.



Thanks!

I am receiving e-mails for all forums/topics. Thank you. Yes, resolved.

I suppose my other issue is resolved also, but the other admin on my
forum said that to allow access to the folders/directories to new users,
I needed to go to User's / Groups --> Group Administration --> Then click the group name where you want to add the new user.

I am assuming that will work, but I wonder why it is not sufficient to
go to Users/Groups --> Modify Tab --> click the user in question, go to the bottom and choose "Member" from the drop-down box,, then go to the Permissions Tab and select the check box or the different folders, or alternatively, to use your suggestion:

General // Categories & Forums // Permissions.

Finally, what is the difference in these actions?

Thank you

Don't understand your query. Tell me the end result that you wish to achieve.

Maybe we should call this resolved.

New users often do not have access to all the folders/directories (forums?) on our forum when they sign up.
What I do now is to go to Users/Groups --> Group Administration --> then click on a group where I want to place
a new user, then they have access to the forums.

That does what I need, so you can close this topic. Thanks for your time. Smile

Since this thread appears to be solved, I will lock this thread and mark it as solved.
