Broken and no author activity for months

This plugin causes a white screen error when members reply to forums, this problem is at least 7 months old and there has been no response from the plugin author.

Seems to be no longer supported.

Potentially excellent if it worked and is much needed

Sadly I have had to withdraw my 5 start review. I too am getting multiple PHP missing argument errors for various arguments. Plugin has not been updated since November 2014 and I cannot commend it unless support resumes.

BP 4.2.2; BuddyPress; bbPress 2.5.7

I have been struggling to get email notifications for forum activity since I discovered it is not standard in bbPress.

BuddyPress Forum Notifier to my rescue. I have been testing it on a test site and it is looking good.

I did have some errors reported when I first tried it - I suspect because I had no groups set up, so I created a group and all was well, even after I had deleted the only group.

It took a while to understand how the emails are sent:

  • When a new topic is created, an email is sent to admin, BCC to subscribers.
  • When a new comment is made, an email is sent to each subscriber and if more than one comment within the time limit, they are combined. This combining does not happen for new topics.
  • I am puzzled this plugin reports as downloaded only a few hundred times and only one review. I have not found anything better and it is a pretty essential function.


    Get notifications only from selected forums

    Nice plugin, really like it! I want to make some customization but I am not very comfortable for coding, so I would like to ask your help.

    I have a site with BBpress and Buddypress. Every user in their profile has xprofile field called etc "Favorite color". And there is a drop down list with color names: black, white, blue, green..

    What I would like to achieve is that if the user has selected "Green" as a color in they profile he will get notification only from forum named " Green", user with selected "Black" in profile will get notifications only from forum "Black", but not from the other forums. The idea is that if user has selected some value in his profile he will get notifications only from the selected forum.

    I would like to get some help in this. Thank you!
