Guest Notification

    Is there any way to alert guest when someone responds to their posts? I know we can do it for registered users, using the “Notify me of follow-up replies via email” checkbox. But most of our visitors are unregistered, and they don’t get that checkbox option.

    When a guest submits a post, BBPress does collect their email address. So in theory it should be possible to use that address to send them an alert when someone replies.

    Is this something that can be done? Either natively or with a plugin?

    Thanks

    That would overturn the whole idea of guest posting.
    Most guest will give a fake email address anyway.

    Actually bbPress should remove the email field for guest posting.

    I see your point, but I kinda disagree. If someone wants to be keep in the loop on replies, they’ll put in a real address. And that’s much easier than requiring them to jump through the hoops of registering.
