Support » Plugin: bbPress Notify (No Spam) » Bug: Mailing Everyone on Replies Even Though Reply Unchecked

  • Resolved JustinGreis


    Hi There –

    First, thank you for writing/improving this plugin; it was just what the doctor ordered on my site. I think I found a bug I wanted to run past you…

    I installed the plugin and configured it to notify all roles when a new topic is posted, but I did not want the notification for replies since I want to let users subscribe to replies (or not). So, I left all roles unchecked for in the “Replies sent to…” section.

    Problem is: In addition to new posts, when my users REPLIED to a post it notified everyone even though the roles were left unchecked.

    Have you seen this error before?

    I deactivated the plugin but have upgraded to the newest version. I have not tried it activating again in order to avoid spamming my users. I wanted to make sure the issue was resolved before re-enabling.

    Thank you in advance for any help or insight you can provide!

    Hi Justin,

    I haven’t had time to look into this yet. Can you provide a step-by-step list of what to do to replicate the issue?


    Hi Vinny –

    No problem…

    All I did was:

    1. installed the plugin
    2. configured the plugin but CHECKING all the boxes for “notification of new topics..”
    3. I UNCHECKED all the boxes for “notification of replies…” since I did not want replies being sent to everyone unless they subscribe to the topic.

    That’s it…

    What ended up happening was EVERYONE was being notified of all replies on the site whether they subscribed to the topic or not.

    Essentially what I am looking for this plugin to do is notify everyone when a new topic is posted but allow people to subscribe to the replies at their discretion.

    Thanks again Vinny. Hope that helps.

    Hi Justin, sorry for the delay in looking into this.

    What you describe is indeed a bug in the code that seems to have been introduced in version 1.2 with the new role handling. We call get_users(array('role' => $opt_recipient) and if $opt_recipient is empty, WP returns all users.

    I’ve fixed it in version 1.2.2. Please give it a try and close this ticket if all is well.


    Hi Vinny –

    I upgraded, reinstalled and will give it a try. Thanks for the fix. I will mark as resolved and log a new issue if this pops up again.

    Thank you again!
