Support » Plugin: bbPress Notify (No Spam) » Replies Setting – For users

  • Resolved Rough Pixels

    (@roughpixels)


    I installed this plugin, but I just want to make sure of the correct setting(s) based on what I want to happen on the site.

    1. Admin gets automatically notified when a new topic and reply is posted by anyone.
    2. The user gets notified that “their own” topic got replied to.

    I want the person who created a topic to get a notification that the admin or someone replied to their own topic only.

    In the past, every user/member on a site I had was getting notifications when anyone created topics and replies. I had a lot of angry people complaining they were getting notifications related to others (everyone and everything).

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi @roughpixels,

    1. Admin gets automatically notified when a new topic and reply is posted by anyone.

    Add Administrator role to both Topics and Replies tabs.

    2. The user gets notified that “their own” topic got replied to.

    For that you’ll need to do the following:

    1. Enable Override Subscriptions to Forums and to Topics in the Topics and Replies tabs, respectively;
    2. Enable the Authors notifications checkbox on both Topics and Replies tabs;
    3. Install bbp-toolkit plugin and turn on the auto-subscribe setting.

    bbpnns does not come with an auto-subscribe for authors, although it’s becoming more obvious that it probably should. But while it doesn’t, the steps above will help you achieve your requirements.

    Cheers,
    Vinny

    Thanks for the fast reply!

    I wasn’t really wanting to put in the bbToolkit, especially because it’s 2 years since last updated. But for now, I reinstalled it and checked the box next to “Auto tick the Notify me of follow-up replies via email (so activate the subscription to every topic you reply to)“. Hopefully, that is the one you are referring to?

    There are many things bbPress should be doing, but they never seem to accept repeated recommendations over the years. It would also be nice to have an option to have all admin notifications to go an email that you could enter into an option setting.
