Re: examples of a 'newsletter' type post with BBCODE?

Trying to figure out of that is self deprecating humor, or some kind of snarky response to my mention of my users being older less tech-savvy. :ugeek:

Re: examples of a 'newsletter' type post with BBCODE?

A BBcode is just a simple HTML markup replacement. You could not build a page with a simple bbcode. Try looking in the Mods database for something like that. Actually a developer I worked with was able to put some custom BBCODE into phpbb (somehow) and have it make table tags, and that was used to ...

Re: examples of a 'newsletter' type post with BBCODE?

Hi brf, Thanks for your reply. What I am hoping to accomplish is to send out our newsletter using the forum instead of just emailing out a PDF so that people will be encouraged to visit the forum and discuss the newsletter there instead of having a huge nightmare of an email thread. These are older,...

Re: examples of a 'newsletter' type post with BBCODE?

I did not. Is there some reason you are so opposed to this thread? It's a general question and I'm not sure why any BBCODE related question should be added to an already-huge thread.

Re: examples of a 'newsletter' type post with BBCODE?

Thanks for your reply. The reason we want to display it right on the forum is to make it incredibly easy for people to respond right in the thread. My user base consists of VERY tech-unsavvy folks and I don't want to burden them with having to download anything, install Adobe, or know to come back t...

examples of a 'newsletter' type post with BBCODE?

Hello all - I have been asked to post a monthly newsletter (previously distributed in PDF) and start putting it on our forum instead. I have used BBCODE a little bit, and I understand html, so I'm sure I can do something decent. But I wonder - does anyone have any great examples of formatting in a n...

Re: difference between subscribing to a forum and a topic

This is still driving me crazy. I have a small user base, and I keep hearing from users that they weren't notified when there was activity on the forum. There is only a post every few days, so people have a hard time keeping up. What I would really like would be for all users to be subscribed to all...

Re: difference between subscribing to a forum and a topic

Looking at the table phpbb_ forums_watch I think I might be able to do this manually. Can anyone give an opinion if this would work or not? The table has 3 fields: forum_id user_id notify_status I only have one forum and it's ID is 2. I can see the user ID's easily enough in the phpbb_users table. C...

Re: difference between subscribing to a forum and a topic

Have you ask each user individually? If not it would be considered spam. I will leave this topic as unsolved, someone may provide more assistance. This user base consists of the 40 or so members of a homeowners association for a small cluster of homes in S. Thailand. I have their express permission...

Re: difference between subscribing to a forum and a topic

I'm not sure why you sent that link.
This isn't spam, this is what my user base wants.

Re: difference between subscribing to a forum and a topic

Hi - thanks for quick response! That mod looks good, but actually my user base is so tech-unsavvy that I don't want to give them more options. They barely understand what a forum is! There is only a single forum and I'd like everyone to be automatically subscribed to it (or I could do it manually) s...

difference between subscribing to a forum and a topic

Hello all - I want to make sure that I understand this simple concept and I didn't see it in the FAQ. What is the difference between subscribing to a forum and a topic? Is this correct? I understand that if you subscribe to a topic then you'll get a notice when there is a new post. When you subscrib...
