Notification Email not working for new posts?

Post by G.I. Suck »

Hey Guys,

Can someone test this for me? I'm finding that with Beta5 and even the CVS version has a problem that emails are not given when new topics are created, but only when replies are made. Seems to be a bug to me.

I take it you subscribed to the forum?
Double check that... I’ll test it if I get a minute.

Yep, I'm subscribed, but I'm not getting informed about New topics that are posted. Only when someone replies to the new topic am I getting informed, or replies to any topic for that matter. It seems like it was a small oversight on this one.

Maybe it is a bug and should go in the bug tracker.

Nope, it’s not a bug... I just finished testing it.

What was your result.

I just created 3 different usernames, pointing them to 3 different email addresses. For some reason, creating a new topic never sends out an email. As soon as the topic is replied to, the emails are sent. There has to be something wrong to the setup that I have.
