Possible solution for people wanting individual emails
« on: November 15, 2012, 01:27:30 PM »
I am testing a SMF modification today.

Here is what you need to do for it to work.

First and foremost you need to go into your account settings, Notifications and have them look like what the picture below shows.   None of this will work if it doesn't match the picture.

Second you need to click 'notify' on a board.  I would suggest the general discussion since that is where most of the traffic is.   ~Make sure you have clicked notify on the board you are wanting emails from.  Other wise none of this will work~

If this does work how I believe it will.   You will now receive an email for each and every single post that goes through the board you have chosen to be notified on.  Regardless of whether you have subscribed to the individual topic.   

Again to be clear.  Your profile notification HAS to look like what I have shown in the attached picture.  To get there:   Profile>Account Settings>Notifications.   And click notify on a board.

Let's see if it works :)

And, while you are there, you could put your name in the 'displayed name' box so I knew who everyone was!   ;)

Okay a couple things.

It appears to be working (mostly).

Some tips:
  • Go into your notification list and clear out any topic subscriptions you may have.  It has a strange priority for what gets sent, and if you are subscribed to a bunch of topics, and then click notify on a board it may not send out an email
  • If you don't want to receive these emails.  Go to the notification options again, but this time set the 'For topics and boards I've requested notification on, notify me of:'  and have it listed as 'nothing'

I am not going to say it's working 100% yet.   But I have been getting emails of posts from topics that I haven't personally viewed.  Which is what people have been wanting.   

We won't know for sure until a few posts go through and a little bigger group of people confirm it's working.

I'm getting emails, so it seems to be working, though I haven't checked to see that I have received all I should receive.

I feel a bit like a party pooper  :) but I think I'm going to turn most of mine off.  It just seems easier to me to come here and check!  But thanks for figuring out how to make it work for folks who want it that way.  And I will continue to "cyber stalk" of few select folks and get notifications of your posts!  Thanks, Chris!

No worries.  Mine are already off ;)

I personally dislike that many emails in my inbox.   To each their own.

Me too!  I have enough emails now and this totally overwhelms my inbox!  I will come here to check when my time allows!  Thanks for getting this done Chris, it will be great for those who prefer emails!

Chris it works awesome!!  A bit too awesome for me... I had to turn it off  ;D  I got to used to not getting so many emails that it was overwhelming to be getting them again!!!  But I am so glad you got it working for those that want it  :)
