[ABD] newpost2mail: Send new posts as email to admin

Post by henmedia » Sat Jan 12, 2008 2:17 pm

Hi all,

As I was looking for a mod which lets me monitor my forum by email on any new written post and didn't find one, I started one myself.

What it actually does is to send a hmtl fomatted email on every (!) new post. It contains the formatted posted text, which is higly readable. Images and attachments are also displayed.

Within the mail you find links to manage this post (edit, delete, reply, contact user) and many other information such as IP and hostname of the posting user.

newpost2mail (n2m) is configurable using a config file. If you want to use the default settings, the whole installation is made in less than 2 minutes.

You'll always find the latest version here: http://henmedia.de

I changed the code above for better display.

For the missing things any help would be fine :)

Sorry, there was a typo, ist should be newpost2mail.php, not newpost2email.php

This is great - just what I was looking for. Thanks for taking the time to put the mod together.
Notifications are sent but immediately after hitting submit I get the following output at the top of the screen:

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /homepages/16/d120861785/htdocs/phpBB2/newpost2mail.php:1) in /homepages/16/d120861785/htdocs/phpBB2/includes/functions.php on line 3391

Check if there are any empty lines in newpost2mail.php before "<?", this is the most common cause for that.

change

Code: Select all

 $subject = html_entity_decode(utf8_decode("[$config[sitename] $mode] $post_data[post_subject]"));
to

Code: Select all

$subject = html_entity_decode(utf8_decode("[$config[sitename] / $data[forum_name] $mode] $post_data[post_subject] from ".$user->data['username']));
Not tested, but should work.

Yes, with some basic PHP knowledge, this is easy. See http://php.net/manual/en/reserved.variables.php for details.

I loaded this and really love it. Thanks! I was thinking about pointing it to a Yahoo Group so they could get the posts (something requested). I've also installed the Primehalo mod that adds the content of a post to the notification email. Ideally, I'd want the best of both. I'd like users to be able to select forums and topics to subscribe and get all posts by email. Is it possible to work this into your mod?

Congrats it worked 1st time for me too :o

I read ths bit

" What it actually does is to send a hmtl fomatted email on every new post. It contains the formatted posted text. It's higly readable, but there are three points missing, so I hope that someone of you will add this: "

I read that as meaning that this mod sent a copy of the actual post , is that not what it is meant to do, possibly just the way I have read it :)

I too would want the content of the post more than anything in the e-mail is this possible.

Cheers

Mas

Dude, the content should be in the post with this mod. Are you sure you got it right?
