I managed to get this right by changing the syntaxt I am using on the trigger. I am now using the following to acheive my goal:

Code: Select all

INSERT INTO phpbb_forums_watch 
 (2, NEW.user_id, 0),
 (21, NEW.user_id, 0)

I use this SQL to subscribe all members in all Forums:

Code: Select all

INSERT INTO phpbb_forums_watch
SELECT distinct f.forum_id, u.user_id, 0
FROM phpbb_forums f, phpbb_users u
WHERE not exists (SELECT 1 from phpbb_forums_watch
   WHERE forum_id = f.forum_id
   AND user_id = u.user_id) AND u.user_type<>2
To not send too many emails, I have 1500 users, if you wanted to limit the auto registration to those who have written more than 200 posts as I do? thanks :)
