Plugin: Post Notification

  • thomasklaiber


    It does what the name says. If you have a topic in your favorites and there will be a new post to this topic it sends you an email. Simply upload and it does its job.

    I think there is no demo needed.

    Download here.

    I would also like to know if there has been any more updates to this plugin, and where I can download it from.

    The links in this thread seem to be dead.




    The download link on the plugin page still works, however, it seems the plugin doesn’t work with 0.9.



    I’ll get to it :)

    I just don’t have the time at the moment. sorry guys…



    Anything that used admin_email with bbPress 0.8.x has to be changed to from_email under 0.9 (I am not sure why it was necessary to break all the plugins like that but what is done is done).

    It should take a simple edit. I still get notification emails under 0.9. I believe I posted the fix on the plugin page.

    Personally, what I want from an email notification service is:-

    1. To notify me of when someone replies, but not EVERYONE that replies.

    I love the fact that in the email notifies you, you click on the url and go to the next reply to your last post, and then you note that there are 20 other replies that you can read through neatly on the BB, but NOT 20 other emails to delete! The whole point of BB’s is that they save email stress. I’d hate to lose this function just because we decided to go with bbpress not phpbb.

    2. Being able to subscribe to not just threads, but FORUMS is also important for some users. In some large forums, some specialists need to know everything going on in that forum and might be so busy that they’d appreciate an email every time someone started a thread.

    This sort of functionality should be standard in bbpress. I’m an activist spread very thinly over the internet, and RSS just doesn’t cut it. I might see a thread, register, comment, and then forget about that whole forum until someone eventually replies. The email keeps me going back. With so many bulletin boards and forums to reply to and keep track of — that ALL pretty much notify of reply by email — why would I bother messing around with RSS as well? My email box is king, only it grabs my attention. This function should not be a plugin.

    3. There should be a function in my profile where I can just click an automatic email generator, so that ANY time I reply in ANY thread, I am automatically emailed if someone replies.

    This is standard, basic bulletin board protocol and absolutely has to be in the standard installation.



    I don’t want those things in the bbPress core – I would never use them. That said, normally things like this can be added via plugins, which are optional and I wouldn’t have to install them. Best of both worlds.

    I am curious why you selected bbPress over phpBB if these core features are already present in phpBB but not in bbPress? Not a flame, an honest question.

    Can this plugin be downloaded anywhere right now?

    Any plans to update this plugin for the current version of bbPress?




    I really really wish he would put it in bbPress subversion. Would be a lot easier for me to make sure the plugin is updated.

    I try many time but link error.What can I do?Can I download now?



    Hi, I am trying to use this plugin on a site running in Slovak language, that means, I need to use special characters. I am not good with php, so forgive me, if am not technical enough :)

    The system e-mails (like registration) are working fine. However, when sending mail through Post Notification, the special characters are messed up.

    When I was checking the source code of the mails, I have discovered, that the registration mails contain the line “Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit Content-Type: text/plain; charset=”UTF-8″”.

    The Post Notification mails (also the Report Post plugin mails) do not contain any charset specification (the source code contains this: X-Amavis-Alert: BAD HEADER SECTION, Non-encoded 8-bit data (char C3 hex).

    Can that be the source of my problem, if yes, how can I solve it?

    Can someone tell me how to modify the plugin so that notifications about favorite topics are emailed by default? I want to save users the two extra steps of logging into their profile and ticking a box to get email notifications about favorites.

    Please err on the side of over explanation.
