Re: [Split] Private Messages email notifications not working p

Another inquiry on this. I continue to test, and still can't seem to get phpBB to fire off an email notification. Advice on some other areas to check that might yield some clues? I am running 3.2.7 and I can't seem to find anything specific to this version. All other email notifications seem to be w...

Re: [Split] Private Messages email notifications not working p

Have you spoken to GoDaddy? Yes, they can't make any determinations but I haven't yet spoken to the "Tier 2" support. I am using php to send emails, so not connected to any SMTP server configured in the phpBB ACP. My thought is to configure phpBB to send through SMTP as a next step. But I...

[Split] Private Messages email notifications not working p

Is there a way that I can verify if the GoDaddy email server is causing this issue, as was suggested? I'm running in to the very same problem with PM email notifications (though on 3.2.7). However all other email notifications denoted in the UCP are being sent with no issues. No errors being reporte...

Re: SQL Statement to Turn On Email Notification of New PM

or you could tell all your students that setting thier notification the way you need them is a requirement for your course. robert Yes, I could do that certainly, however, there are some concerns I have. I'd prefer that the board to be a little more seamless as most of my students are coming to it ...

Re: SQL Statement to Turn On Email Notification of New PM

Thank you everyone, so much. I now understand this is not as simple as changing a single database field. Though, since I'm working with small batches of students that are divided into groups, I think it will be very easy to implement the extensions mentioned. This is such an important functionality ...

SQL Statement to Turn On Email Notification of New PM

Hi All, Looking for a SQL statement that hopefully someone might have in their back pocket. The SQL will simply turn on email notifications, to notify users when they receive a PM. This is a board for my students and I'm trying to use PMing more, but need to turn on their email notifications via the...

Re: Pin Post to Beginning of Topic

Noted. Thanks for the clarification. I was referring to the extension linked to earlier in the topic as a possible solution, if that wasn't clear. I was agreeing with you that it sounded to me like you were working in the direction that seems best. A single "pinned" or "special" ...

Re: Pin Post to Beginning of Topic

Thanks warmweer. I think this would be a powerful modification, whether it's an extension or becomes part of the core functionality. I can certainly attest to and argue for the benefits of having pinned posts. The extension that was referenced earlier in this topic, is a great step in the right dire...

Pin Post to Beginning of Topic

Simple concept I think. I'm willing to help develop and feature that would simply pin a post to the top of a topic. So, if a user sorts the topic, the first post will always appear as the first post in the topic. Another option that would work for me is to simply pin the first post of a topic so tha...

Re: Change Group for Multiple Users

That will do the trick in combination with the "Remove member from group" functionality, i.e. add users to new group, then remove them from the other group. However, what this process is doing is also setting the "default" group for the user as well as adding them to the new grou...

Change Group for Multiple Users

What is the process for moving multiple users from one group to another in the ACP? Can it be done?

Re: Attachment Upload Hangs

Just wanted to follow up on this. It was an issue on the hosting company side. Updates to a firewall caused certain functionality to cease, as described above. Had to "whitelist" particular URL's including posting.php.

Attachment Upload Hangs

A recent issue has emerged and I'm researching possible causes. I've had a few reports that users are not able to upload an mp3 or ogg attachment, although the board is configured correctly i.e. file sizes are correctly set and configured. No issues for many years with this. It's been working, alway...
