Some of the members are loving this MOD, which makes me happy. The next question I have, does it (or will it) prevent messages in forums that are private (like for admins and mods only) from being sent out? Is there a way to filter what gets emailed and what doesn't?

Oh, and thanks for a great MOD. I'll frisk the members for a donation.

Messages are sent for each single post, it does not look for any forum rights, not now and not in future versions as n2m is meant to be for admins, not for end users.

But there is a section in the n2m configuration that might help in your case:

Code: Select all

// CONFIGURING RECIPIENTS FOR INDIVIDUAL FORUMS:
//
// If you want to send mails to indivdiual recipients depending on the forum, this
// can be configured here. This may be useful if you do not want to monitor all
// forums or if you have different moderators for your forums and all or some of them
// should receive only mails for their forum(s).
Please see the config file for more details about this feature.

is there a way to limit it to just 1 forum instead of all the forums?

Meaning have a General Forum, Tech Support & Creative Arts Forum. I want to just send the emails on the Tech Support forum instead of the others.

This can be done, it's explained in newpost2mail.config.php.

First you have to set $n2m_MAILTO_BOARDCONTACT = 0, this changes the default behaviour of sending all postings the the admin address. So no mail is sent now.

For the rest:

Code: Select all

// CONFIGURING RECIPIENTS FOR INDIVIDUAL FORUMS:
//
// If you want to send mails to indivdiual recipients depending on the forum, this
// can be configured here. This may be useful if you do not want to monitor all
// forums or if you have different moderators for your forums and all or some of them
// should receive only mails for their forum(s).
//
// You need the numerical forum ID for that, which can be found in the URL of the
// forum in question. Just open a forum and look at its URL. You'll get something
// like http://your-forum.com/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=789
// In the example above we have "f=18" which means the forum ID is 18
//
// Now we add $n2m_MONITOR_FORUM[ID][] = "any@address.here" for EACH forum and EACH
// recipent. You cannot have multiple IDs or multiple recipients in one line!
//
// If you want to have mails for forum ID 3 to peter@yourdomain.com and
// tom@yourdomain.com and mails for forum ID 7 to mary@yourdomain.com and to
// tom@yourdomain.com, you'll have to change
//
// $n2m_MONITOR_FORUM[][] = "";
//
// to the following lines:
//
// $n2m_MONITOR_FORUM[3][] = "peter@yourdomain.com";
// $n2m_MONITOR_FORUM[3][] = "tom@yourdomain.com";
// $n2m_MONITOR_FORUM[7][] = "mary@yourdomain.com";
// $n2m_MONITOR_FORUM[7][] = "tom@yourdomain.com";

$n2m_MONITOR_FORUM[][] = "";

oh ok. Thank you for your reply. I missed the set the BoardContact to 0 part. Now the next question is, can I still get the emails sent to a group instead of just an email address? I saw the option for the group emails but it looks like its not part of the monitoring Individual Forums section.

No, but you can set multiple recipients ... by just repeating the line for each email address ....

Sorry if this has been asked -- can these emails be sent to regular users of the forum? Or just admin and moderators?

Wait...I think I answered my own question: >>Messages are sent for each single post, it does not look for any forum rights, not now and not in future versions as n2m is meant to be for admins, not for end users.<<

So no plans for end users? That's what our users want, to be able to select to receive new posts by email.

Thanks,

Fred

You can set any users to receive emails from any forums.. but this must be done manually, per user and per forum...

I just wish this funcitonality was embedded into BB, and was user configuarble through their control panel..

Its not too bad to manage for me as we have <10 users and 18 forums... and we only need to limit a couple of the users to certain forums...

I've had this running for a few months now but it just stopped working the other day. Is there a log kept somewhere so I can work out whats happening?

The mod looks astounding, works silently and also good, the only thing is,

I wished there would be an option that your mod would have the ability of sending posts no onto email, but from the email itself onto the forum without post acception.

That would not only help us to post posts from cell phones, but even from Mozilla Thunderbird, what could possibly be mentioned as an futuristic addon just like "Beam Posts Up, Scotty" from famous Star Trek saga :D

Sorry, but this is something completely different and there are no plans for that.
