In the forum editing screen, every time I set "Notify moderator(s) of all new messages" to YES, and go back to the same screen, the setting will change back to NO. Is this a bug? Please help. Thanks.

Is the GLOBALS.php inside the adm/ directory a symlink?

yes, it is a symlink. So is it supposed to be a actual globals.php file there? if so, where can I copy it from?

I've found /include/globals.php and looks like i could modify it directly instead of using admin panel. However, it seems like one can get notified only if the forum is moderated? This is explained in /include/GLOBALS_HELP:

{{{MODERATED_POST_NOTIFY FUD_OPT_2 262144
Notify forum moderators via e-mail when a new message is posted in a forum where a message must first be approved by the moderator before shown to the rest of the visitors.}}}

so it's not an option to get notified if the forum is not moderated? Just like one cannot get notified if new account registration is not moderated?

thanks

It should be a symlink. Is the one inside the forum web root a symlink as well?

Is the file inside the include directory writable by the web server user?

I would assume it's writable since I was able to modify it directly using my same account. Also I am able to use the admin control panel to save other settings. It's only this particular setting (Notify moderator(s) of all new messages) which I am not able to set.

Maybe you could tell me which specific setting I should look for in GLOBALS.PHP? so I could verify if it is set correctly? Thanks.

The option is 262144 bit of the $FUD_OPT_2 bitmask.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it sounds like this option is for moderated forum only.

thanks anyway.

That's correct and that's the only time when a moderator will be notified in regard to any message posted in a forum they are moderating.

Is there a way to notify the moderators of the forum by e-mail, even if the forum setting allows direct posting without prior confirmation?

It sounds to me as if Songbee was looking also for such an option.

I have the problem of motivating my dear moderators to check their sections regularly - otherwise the posted messages (technical questions) may stay unnoticed too long.

I would really appreciate a function, which notifys a moderator, whenever in his/her section something new has been posted. On the other hand I don't want to mistrust people posting questions, by having to wait for message approval.

Thank you very much.

P.S. We are still using 2.3.6, because installation wasn't easy on our hosting server, because of script running-time limitations.

There is an option for moderated forums whereby FUDforum would notify the mods of any new messages and topics. If you remove the "is the forum moderated" check from this code bit and enable this option in the admin panel you'll get the functionality that you desire.

Dear Ilia,

Unfortunately I'm no pro to understand, what I need to do. I understand some php basics and am willing to learn more, but the fudforum is complex for my level.

Is it correct, that you mean I should alter the .php files which contain a "moderated"-checking in the SQL term like?
fud23msg.approved='N' AND fud23forum.moderated='Y'


or is it in the .php files which contain
if ( $autoapprove && $frm->moderated != 'N' ) $this->approve(NULL, TRUE);
?

or is it just a tweak in one file?

Thank you very much.

Not quite. You need to edit imsg_edt.inc.t and find

if ($mtf->forum_opt & 64) {

You need to remove the if block around the code, and make it happen all the time.

There is a bug in adm/admforum.php at line 52. It never saves the parameter frm_mod_notify back into the frm_forum_opt.

The fix is:

$_POST['frm_forum_opt'] = (int) $_POST['frm_mod_notify'] | (int) $_POST['frm_mod_attach'] | (int) $_POST['frm_moderated'] | (int) $_POST['frm_passwd_posting'] | (int) $_POST['frm_tag_style'];

And there's another bug in imsg_edt.inc.t around line 491. The SQL is malformed because of a duplication of "INNER JOIN".

$tmp = db_all('SELECT u.email FROM {SQL_TABLE_PREFIX}mod \
mm INNER JOIN INNER JOIN {SQL_TABLE_PREFIX}users u ON u.id=mm.user_id WHERE mm.forum_id='\
.$mtf->forum_id);


should be

$tmp = db_all('SELECT u.email FROM {SQL_TABLE_PREFIX}mod \
mm INNER JOIN {SQL_TABLE_PREFIX}users u ON u.id=mm.user_id WHERE mm.forum_id='\
.$mtf->forum_id);
