All users to subscribe to topic by default on reply

Post by on_way_to_fame » Mon Aug 30, 2010 10:39 am

Hi,

I want to make sure that when a user posts a reply to a message they get subscribed to it by default. How can I change this setting for all users. They can of course undo this setting, via their settings page.

At the moment, it seems that when a user first registers, by default this setting is not enabled.

Thanks

open includes/functions_user.php
Find:

Code: Select all

		'user_notify'			=> 0,
Replace with:

Code: Select all

		'user_notify'			=> 1,

That will only affect new users. For existing users run this query: ( Executing SQL Queries in phpMyAdmin KB )

Code: Select all

UPDATE phpbb_users SET user_notify = 1 WHERE user_type <> 2
If your table prefix is not phpbb_ change to your table prefix.

mine (3.1) is already set to 1, but people are not subscribed by default.

This doesn't seem to work.

Please continue in the topic you made yourselves. This is exactly why there are different support areas, because advice for given for phpBB 3.0 might not necessarily work the same way for phpBB 3.1. :)
