Force all users to be subscribed to all topics

  • There is a plugin that makes the Subscribe to Replies option checked by default. Would that work for you? It would only apply when users posted a reply though.

    Thanks for your reply! Unfortunately users should receive email notifications even if they didn’t post a reply…

    There’s not a plugin for that as far as I know, sorry.

    Unfortunately, this won’t scale very well. Notifications and Favorites are stored in a serialized array is usermeta, and keeping track of every topic will eventually slow things down significantly.

    Instead, I’d filter `bbp_is_user_subscribed` and invert the results. That way you’re subscribed to all topics, and bbPress only stores the topics your users are not subscribed to.

    Make this into a plugin:

    `function invert_subscribe( $is_subscribed ) {
    return ! $is_subscribed;
    }
    add_filter( ‘bbp_is_user_subscribed’, ‘invert_subscribe’ );`

    Thank you for your reply John!
    Excuse me my stupidity, but I don’t really get how to implement this code.
    Could you explain to which file in “wp-content/plugins/bbpress” should I add this piece of code?
    Should I download any extra plugins?
    Thanks!

    That shouldn’t go in bbPress. Never modify the plugin, everything gets lost when you update.

    It should go in your theme’s functions.php file.

    Thank you for your reply!
    I’ve added

    function invert_subscribe( $is_subscribed ) {
    return ! $is_subscribed;
    }
    add_filter( ‘bbp_is_user_subscribed’, ‘invert_subscribe’ );
    

    to my functions.php file, but it doesn’t seem to work…
    My users still don’t get email notifications for some reason.
    Any suggestions?
