Need a digest...

Post by morkus » Mon May 28, 2018 9:54 am

I decided on the phpBB board to help replace an aging listserve.

The problem now appears to be, and it could be a show-stopper for the brand new phpBB board, is that there doesn't appear to be a way to automate sending digests -- daily, weekly, or any other time period.

Since these users are accustomed to the listserve sending them regular emails, I am not sure they'll ever warm up to the passive phpBB approach where they're expected to go to phpBB on their own.

I could send regular "mass" emails, but that puts all the onus on me.

There must be a solution to this problem, right?

I hope I don't have to start over with another board...

Thanks,

No I haven't tried it.

It is not advised to use RC extensions in a live environment so read the topic and check what people are reporting. If in doubt test on a local version of your forum to check things out

I tried it, but when I went to enable it, I got this:

Catchable fatal error: Argument 1 passed to phpbbservices\digests\core\common::__construct() must be an instance of phpbb\language\language, none given, called in /..../public_html/ext/phpbbservices/digests/migrations/release_3_0_2_data.php on line 33 and defined in /.../public_html/ext/phpbbservices/digests/core/common.php on line 27

I sent the developer an email.

Thanks,

Best to post in the support topic. Some developers will only support in topic. You are likely to get a faster reply as someone else may have had the same issue
