can PHPBB be setup to email every post?

Post by craigpierce » Wed Aug 16, 2006 6:02 pm

PHPBB comes with a built in ability to email notifications that there are new posts in a thread that a user is active in...is there a MOD that gives the option of a user receiving every post made to the board via email?

i've seen the 'digest' MOD, but that's not exactly what we want - it seems to update only so often, where-as what we want is for the board to send out an email for every post (and containing that post's content as the email content) as soon as it's made.

is this an exisiting MOD or is it possible to do?

thanks for the help!

One way that it can easily be done is to install the RSS feeds mod and then anyone that wants to be notified of all posts can install an RSS feed reader.

I monitor activity on my sons board using that method and it will notify me instantly of every post. I can even read the post complete with images without going to his board.

Free Open Source Feedreader

where it says:

"Same as the default watch topic function, but this MOD allows users to watch a forum for new topics."

i assume that means that an email is sent too? if so, that could be perfect...thanks!
