So if I have the forum name, I need just to retrive from the DB the admin(s) that runs it and put in $n2m_MAILTO[] their mail address.

Am I correct?

Yes, this can be done this way. But you should use the forum_id which you can find in $data[forum_id].

Good luck :)

Can this mod be configured to e-mail only when a user or a user group posted messages?
I abandoned all of my mods.

You mean only if a special user you want to monitor has posted a message? Actually no and there a no plans to support this at this time, sorry. n2m is meant to be a mod for fully monitoring your board.

Nevetheless, if mail subject contains poster's name, I may create an e-mail filter at mail client, then distinguish and keep that posters' mail and dump other mails to trash.. Thanks..

New version beta 6 released:
  • Before beta 6, theme prosilver was used for formatting the email if configured. This gave a large overhead, because the mail client had to load all the style information from your webserver (~60kb), but only a very small part of this stylesheet was needed to display the posted message.
    Now only the required style data is included in the mail body. We read this from the new file newpost2mail.css and insert this to the html header in the mail body. The result is a layout close to the one the original prosilver theme provides, but the stripped down code now is only ~2kb, this means much less traffic and higher speed to display the mail. You can change this layout by editing the file if you want. The prosilver theme is not used or needed anymore by newpost2mail.
  • In newpost2mail.config.php the setting $n2m_USE_PROSILVER has been dropped, it's not used anymore.
  • If the hostname for the posting IP could not be retrieved, the IP was shown instead, so it was shown twice. Now n/a is displayed for the hostname if it's not available.

Hi

Where do you want newpost2mail.css to go root or styles/prosilver/themes/ ???

All files are expected to be in your phpBB root directory. As the newpost2mail.css is not a theme, it should not be held in the theme directory.

New version beta 7 released:
  • Attachment handling has been optimized, now it works the same way phpBB3 does, including display of attachments within the posted text (inline attachments).
  • newpost2mail.css has been updatet for attachment handling.
  • Before beta 7, the php built in mail() function has been used for sending out the emails. Now we use whatever you have configured for your phpBB3 installation, so SMTP servers can be used if needed.

So far, I'm done. All the features I thought to implement are ready. Now it's up to you to test that all. I'm running this in a production environment with no problems at all.

I did a slight modification for the mod:

Now it will send an email only the the forum's administrator.
This is good incase you have several forums and in each one of them you have different administrators.
fill free to fix my code because this is my first day in PHP coding.... :D

This code goes after:
include($phpbb_root_path . 'newpost2mail.config.php');


//Sending the mail only the the forum's admin in which the post was made on

/*
if ((empty($n2m_MAILTO)) or (empty($n2m_MAILTO[0]))) {
$n2m_MAILTO = "";
$n2m_MAILTO[] = $config[board_contact];
} */



global $auth,$db;

$admin_ary = $auth->acl_get_list(false, 'm_', $data[forum_id]);
$admin_ary = (!empty($admin_ary['3']['m_'])) ? $admin_ary['3']['m_'] : array();

$n2m_MAILTO = "";

if (sizeof($admin_ary))
{
$where_sql = 'Where ' . $db->sql_in_set('user_id', $admin_ary);

$sql = 'SELECT user_email,username
FROM ' . USERS_TABLE . ' ' .
$where_sql;

$result = $db->sql_query($sql);

$email = "";
$n2m_MAILTO = array();
while ($row = $db->sql_fetchrow($result))
{
if ($post_USERNAME != $row['username'])
$n2m_MAILTO[] = $row['user_email'];
}
}


//End sending the mail only the the forum's admin in which the post was made on

Looks ok so far ;). If you like, I'll put this into the script for the next beta and add a configuration switch for that in newpost2mail.config.

$admin_ary = $auth->acl_get_list(false, 'm_', $data[forum_id]);
$admin_ary = (!empty($admin_ary['3']['m_'])) ? $admin_ary['3']['m_'] : array();
This does not work for my installation. After these lines, $admin_ary is empty.

If I got you right, this should detect, if the group "administrator" is linked to the forum. This is true in my case.

Any idea?

In my opinion it would make sense do give the user the option to select if an email is sent to forum adminstrators and to forum moderators. But I have no idea yet how to make this work :)
