You can get a notification for new posts by subscribing. There is no subscription notice for posts requiring approval, because they are not yet posts. You can get notification for new registrations by setting Activation to "By admin", assuming you have the permission "Can manage users". If you are not getting the email, either you do not have that permission, you are looking at the wrong email account, or something else is wrong. Moderators get notice of posts needing approval both in the MCP and by the special icon in viewforum. Presumably, if one is moderating a forum, they will visit it from time to time.johnnycashy wrote: ↑Wed Apr 26, 2017 1:13 pmAnd as the moderator gets no email...
Just got a message for my new forum by a new user:
"I registered for the board, but did not receive an activation email, so I asked for it to be resent, but so far nothing. Should I just wait, or can you activate for me. The username is sectorbets"
He wrote me an email to a known contact.
Sory, i know phpBB is liked and widespreaded but i can't understand why it lags such a fundamental
feature...completely unknowable. And i am not alone. This is a frequent question: How to get informed
for new post or registrations.
Such users will drop the forum.
And if you are still the administrator then you will have access to the ACP to set the permissions.
Yes, but you have to keep in mind that all settings (thus including permission settings) are in the database.
