Hi there,

When you subscribe to a forum, you are notified of new topics BUT not of following messages (unless you subscribe to the new topics first).
Is there an option/patch to solve that problem ?

btw, is there a way (e.g a script) to have all users subscribed at once to a forum [say, an "Announcement" forum] or to a topic [maybe a quick fix for the above pb] ?

Thanks a lot for your support.

PS
I love FUDforum but my users complain all the time about not being notified of new messages Sad

I'm running 6.2 with the latest cvs

There is a bug with e-mail notifications in 2.6.2, I will be releasing 2.6.3 shortly that will address the problem.

Argh... I gave you the wrong command to run, my apologies, this one shows the table structure and I needed to see the index structure.

Please run "show index from fud26_thread_notify"

That appears to be the correct data, there is a unique cross index between the user & the thread.

I think the e-mail notification problem is likely to be caused by some people not viewing the messages after being notified about it. This causes the forum to refuse to send them further messages since it thinks the user never responded to the original e-mail notification. You can 'fix' that by turning off "Smart Notification" option in the admin control panel, which would make the forum notify subscribed users on each reply.

Hi again and thank you for your support,

Well, "smart notification" is already off (this is actually the first thing I did after upgrading to the new version, because I thought that would solve my problem...)
And I just made another test to double-check that we still have the problem : we do Crying or Very Sad

I'm wondering now whether this is a "notification" or a "subscription" pb.
Looks to me that the pb would be solved if, when subscribed to a forum, you were automatically subscribed to new topics: this doesn't seem to be the case. Is it normal ?

btw, is there a way to know who is susbcribed to a particular forum/topic and the list of emails that were sent ?

I think the problem is a misunderstanding of how the subscriptions work.

Being subscribed to a forum ONLY means that you would get notified about new topics in that forum, it does not automatically subscribe you to every topic inside that forum.

You can see how is subscribed to what topic/forum by looking inside the thread_notify & forum_notify tables.

Each user has a control panel allowing them to manage their own subscriptions.
