Use topic as mailing list
I have a private forum where I’d like to run some kind of mailing list in one topic (may be in a seperate forum as well). Every logged in user should be able to view the topic and subscribe to it, but only admins should be allowed to post so the mailing load can be controlled.
1) Close the topic. But it seems like subscribe-notifications are only sent when the topic is open. Is there a fix for that?
2) Use seperate forums and the Private Groups plugin (great stuff btw!) so only few people can post in the mailing forum/topic. But it’s not possible to make the forum/topic viewable but “post-protected” for one group.
I’m using WP 4.0.1 and bbP 2.5.4. Example forum of the site (bbP-design is to be fixed): http://tumkolleg.ovtg.de/?forum=example-forum
I’m thankful for any suggestions. 🙂
