bbPress New Topic Notifications


This plugin is for bbPress 2.x

Many people who run forums would like to know when a new topic (thread) has been posted but do not have the time to constantly check their forum for activity. This solves that!

This plugin will send an e-mail notification to specific addresses when a new topic has been posted. The users who receive notification along with a simple e-mail template is configured in the bbPress settings.

See the author website.

Why are there no questions here?
