So the MOD is able to post messages like emails to the phpBB3.0.x site when I'm away from my laptop and I can type it as email on my phone?

The mod isn't for being able to send messages to the forum but to get notifications by email of changes to the forum.

For what you want have a look at b2evolution. It's an open source blog which you can update by phone etc. maybe you could adapt the code.
facts invariably distort the truth

Thanks amoun, I already tried to explain this some posts above, but some people simply do not want to understand or accept certain things. And: No, I'm not kidding, EOD.

This is a great MOD. Thanks to the author. :)

A few basic questions.

I want to send the email notifications to all users.

Code: Select all

 // You can send mails to groups defined in your phpBB3 installation by changing the
  // follwing line:
  //
  // $n2m_MAILTO_GROUP[] = "";
  // to
  // $n2m_MAILTO_GROUP[] = "your_group_here";
  //
  // Now newpost2mail will send an email to every user which is member of this group.
  //
  // It may be a good idea to create a group called "n2m_recipients" or similar in your
  // phpBB3 installation, so you can manage the recipients by just adding the users who
  // should receive emails to this group.
  //
  // If you want to send to multiple groups, simply repeat this line for each group:
  //
  // $n2m_MAILTO_GROUP[] = "your_1st_group_here";
  // $n2m_MAILTO_GROUP[] = "your_2nd_group_here";
  // $n2m_MAILTO_GROUP[] = "your_3rd_group_here";

  $n2m_MAILTO_GROUP[] = "";
I tried this code

$n2m_MAILTO_GROUP[] = "Registered Users"

but I think it did not recognize the variable due to space. As per the instructions, I created a group "n2m_recipients" and included all members in this group.

This code is working

$n2m_MAILTO_GROUP[] = "n2m_recipients"

But I was wondering if I can include the Registered Users group in the code.

I looked into the phpBB3 database, where n2m also looks up for groups.

The group called "Registered Users" is actually named "REGISTERED" in the database, so please try it with this name and see if it works.

I also find the following groups defined in the database:

GUESTS
REGISTERED
REGISTERED_COPPA
GLOBAL_MODERATORS
ADMINISTRATORS
BOTS
NEWLY_REGISTERED

Please tell us, if this fits your needs.

Using REGISTERED does not seem to be working.

Does the mod send email to the board admin by default ? Because when I used

$n2m_MAILTO_GROUP[] = "REGISTERED"

the dummy account did not receive the email but the admin did.

Also once I changed the group back to "n2m_recipients" group and tried a test post, I received 2 email notifications, one for the previous post which was not sent out when I had changed the group to REGISTERED. :?:

I'll try to start from the very beginning and install b2evo maybe, cause I'm not good in playin' with code.

After implementing the mod, I have noticed that after you click on submit after posting a reply or topic, there is a slight delay of 5-10 secs when nothing seems to be happening, and often users tend to click on the submit button again resulting in double post.

Is there anything we can do ?

This lag depends on how long your server needs to send the mails and of course the more receipients, the longer it takes.

I cant seem to get this to work. I am not recieving the posts in the emails. I am running a different theme other than ProSilver and I am running phpbb 3.0.4. Could either of these be my problem?

Thanks in advance.

A different Theme doesn't matter and it should run with every v3.x Version so far. Did you double check your changes to posting.php?
