About

Image

This extension uses a service replyPUSH. Which is currently being trialled for free.

If you are happy to trial it you may apply by signing up, having read the terms. The service in currently in beta, the extension is currently being CDB validated.

We do recommend you also contact x00 if you wish to be involved, as your application may be
ignored otherwise. I am keen to help early adopters so don't be shy.

There is no obligation to stay with the service.

What it does

This extension allows email notifications from phpBB (topic, post, bookmark, quote, pm)
to be replied to directly by the user, posting back their reply in context.

The notifications are sent directly from your users to their email as normal. Special email headers
allow the user to reply though the replyPUSH service, which processes and posts them back to your site.

Security is achieved through integrity and authenticity verification, which uses replyPUSH
account number and credentials, and under normal posting rules and permissions.

This is strictly a "push" not a "pull" based service, so the extension doesn't 'phone home', instead it
simply waits for the replies to come in.

In order to make it work more fluidly, we have relaxed phpBB3's normal notification restrictions,
to be more conducive to this sort of user experience. We may be introducing configurable caps to
control this to your satisfaction.

For user experience, we have have collated notifications relating to topics under one subject,
they appear in conversation/thread view in email clients (subject to their settings),
and the same for PMs.

Installation

Clone into phpBB/replyPUSH/replybyemai where phpBB is the forum root (subsitute your own path)

Code: Select all

git clone https://github.com/replyPUSH/ReplyByEmail-phpBB-Extension.git phpBB/ext/replyPUSH/replybyemail
Check out the latest version

Code: Select all

cd phpBB/ext/replyPUSH
git checkout $(git describe --tags `git rev-list --tags --max-count=1`)
Open up you forum in your browser and login into ACP.

Go to "ACP" > "Customise" > "Extensions" and enable the "Reply By Email" extension.

Setup

Go to "ACP" > "General" > "Email settings" scroll to "Reply by Email Settings" and fill it out

Your credentials will be on your replyPUSH profile.

Save the Notify Url on your replyPUSH profile, and you should be good to go.

The Notify Url has to be publicly available. If you are using localhost you could use to tunnelling service like ngrok to get a temporary url for testing only.

Its working fine on my forum too.

Please note that user need to be subscribed to the forum to get the default notification email. Now have to find an extension that makes every user (existing and new) subscribed to the forum by default.

BoardWatch still not there for 3.1 :cry:
