Notifications with actual Message Content

Post by dereksurfs on 23rd June 2014, 07:36

Hello,

I recently setup a new forum which I really like overall.  However the email notifications one receives when following a thread or forum needs improvement.  The content is much too generic to be very meaningful or useful beyond the simple redirect link and some boilerplate verbiage.  Other forums I participate in provide 'actual content' of the new message which triggered the notification.  That way you have the choice whether to read the new message directly or click on yet another link to go back to the forum to read it there.  

I've used the search feature and the FAQ and could not find this feature mentioned.  Though I saw a similar request for actual content regarding PMs.  The same functionality applies here as well.  Maybe there is another request for general email notifications to include real content.  If so please point me to it.  If not then I think this would be a very useful improvement to the current notification system.

Update: I included a poll to get other ppls opinions on this as well.

Thank you,

Derek

No comments, but two out of three vote for it at least as an option.  I'm not sure why anyone would vote against it as 'an option' even if they don't want to read messages directly themselves.  In that case it would have 'Zero' impact on them. That is unless they are the programmer and simply don't want changes.
