Quick question, does the Forum module for 3.1 have notification emails of new postings for moderators built in? I ask because on
this pull request it seems to be mentioned:
"moderator notifications can be enabled via the Forum::$notify_moderators - this automatically sends all activity to the moderators of the given forum using the new template."
But I don't know how to implement this?
I see other people have been working on a separate module for this but just wondering if it's built in to the latest Forum Module?
Yes it is built into the latest module for 3.1. To activate it set
Forum::$notify_moderators = true;
If your _config.php file.
This flag should probably be moved to the CMS as a setting.
This is great news Will!
Would it be particularly difficult to extend this to allow Forum Members to subscribe to email notifications on a forum by forum basis?
The work I've done based on Elgordo's great little module for SS2.4 has given me this functionality at the expense of having moderators at all.
(See this thread)
Any suggestions or guidelines you could provide would be most helpful!
I too would like to see a subscription per forum basis.. that would be awesome.
davepolyester - did your code work for 3.1??
Haven't tried to implement it on 3.1 yet Macka, but will post my results when I get to it, unless someone else does the job for me ;-)
I want to do it properly for 3.1, as a module rather than a hack.
Got fed up with this, and decided to have another hack it myself. As i'm no developer realistically, so therefor i probably haven't done this right, but anyhow...... So far i have (with your help too thanks!) managed to get a link to display on the forum/category page so users can subscribe. It will also now email anyone who is subscribed to that forum that a post has been made.
So um - yeah - have a look if you wish. https://github.com/macka601/silverstripe-forum
Cool man, I look forward to checking it out. Don't worry, you can't be any less of a developer than I am!
