I have a forum with quite a bunch of members, but only few posters. Moreover, there is only a post twice a week to once a day max.
But these messages are really important. And as there is so little traffic, users don't come on regular basis to check new messages.
Here is what I need: I want to send a mail to every user concerned (i.e. who have access to that specific part of the forum, as there are a "public" and a "private" zones) for each new subject or for the FIRST answer (not every message of course!) to a topic since their last visit on the forum...
I ran Google, explored phpBB.com, your site,... but found nothing...
Til today, I download the phpbb_forum_watch, phpbb_forum_groups, phpbb_forums, phpbb_users, mix them in Excel through a pain-in-the-ass macro and reinject them in my forum via save/restore database, and this each time a new user registers, or a new forum is created. Simply awful and time consuming.
Any better idea would be appreciated
