Set Notify me when a reply is posted on to automatic


Print Track
Hy,

when someone answers something in a forum the default value for the notifications on answers is not no notify.

is there any way to turn as default to notify on answer?

users should have in their profile options that option too. is there any mod for that?

thanks

Nope.
another think I guess that the forum miss is if I answer a topic and not choose to be notified on reply I can only turn notification on if I answer again and select that!

there is no button to press to be notified on replies!

imagine i want to follow a topic but haven't post there yet... :(

Admin Panel -> System Admin -> Forum Settings -> Enable forum thread notification? <-- set this to yes and there is a link in the upper right corner

Guys, could u help me? I have "forum thread notification" enabled and cannot find the option, that can switch off sendinding e-mails with forum notifications!
forum/postify.php => comment the code, that compose and send emails (while() with sendemail function) - it placed closed to 100-120 lines of postify.php

Hey I know this is a super old post BUT if you haven't found the answer yet... you can just edit the postnewthread.php and postreply.php... this will change it so it can be default when someone replies or creates a new post. of course its not the best solution because individual users can't select the setting, it will just always be defaultly checked.

in both the postreply.php and postnewthread.php just change:
CodeDownload  
echo "<br />\n<label><input type='checkbox'
name='notify_me' value='1'".$notify_checked." /> ".$locale
['486']."</label>;


to
CodeDownload  
echo "<br />\n<label><input type='checkbox'
name='notify_me' value='1'".$notify_checked." checked /> ".$locale
['486']."</label>;



hopes this helps someone out there.
