Extension Name: Telegram Notifier Method
Author: gsere
Extension Description: Allow users to receive notifications by telegram of new posts, private messages or requests to join groups.
Extension Version: 1.0.0
Requirements:
Features:
Screenshots: (can't upload images or files)
Extension Download: https://github.com/Gsere/phpbb-telegram ... master.zip

How it works:
This extension works in the same way as Email notifications.
1) As usual the administrator have to create a Telegram Bot using Botfather and enter it's token in the acp. After that a new field in the user profile ask him for it's Telegram ID.
2) Once the user enter it's Telegram ID in his profile a new column called Telegram in the "Edit notifications" page allows him to configure which notifications receive in the same way it does with email.
I have this extension working well. I don't know how to share it here.

Beta or RC versions require an accessible link to download.

It looks interesting, do you have a download link as Raul said? or a public repository where we can see the code (GitLab, GitHub, etc)?

No, the lassik extension is configured in the ACP and send notifications *only* to the board administrator not to each user. Users can not configure their own profiles to receive notifications by telegram.

Instead, after this extension is configured in the ACP, users are allowed to configure *their own profiles* to select what notifications receive by telegram in the same way it can do it on email.

Only to board admin? No that is not correct.

Any user who wants to use Telegram must be invited to the group previously created in the bot.

I think you need to re-read the extension to lassik.

Over 100 User receive notifications from telegram bot on my forum.It works great at the moment.

By the way ... lassik extension is still BETA.

This extension is not a copy of the other one, go and compare the repositories (code) and you will see.

You're right, all group members receive all notifications. I mean: all members, all notifications. It's like writing notices on a public billboard. In my humble opinion I think this strategy is useful mainly for administrators to monitor the activity of the site but who knows. For me as a user it's a bit annoying to receive notifications from the forums I'm not following.

Instead, this extension approaches the problem from another angle. The bot sends notifications individually to each user according to the preferences configured in the user's profile. In this way each user receives only notifications of his interest and can select also the kind of notifications to receive.

New users? Or join to a group? UCP does not send notifications to users about new users. What extension are you using?
Please also post the notification message received.
