E-mail notification or Automatically watch
Got a nodeBB instance up and running. We're planning to use it for our community and as support. Based on testing it out, one concern I have, though, is that users who ask a troubleshooting question won't be notified unless they check the specific topic in the forum. I installed the nobebb-plugin-category-notifications plugin so that you at least get notified if you're watching a topic, and I've configured it so that it sends an e-mail as well.
Is there a plugin or a way to configure things so that when a someone responds to a topic you started, you get an e-mail notification? I want to make sure people don't necessarily need to be on the forum at the exact topic to see that someone has responded.
Or (given the way I have things set up so far), automatically "watch" a topic that you start?
Or am I missing something completely obvious?
Under ACP > Settings > User, there are a few settings all the way at the bottom. You probably want to enable the following ones:
- Follow topics you create
- Send an email when replies are made to topics I am subscribed to
That will set those settings as the default for new users.
Edit: it may be the case that those settings no longer exist or no longer function, in which case please let me know
So it looks like by default, there still isn't an e-mail sent unless the user goes to their "Settings" and changes
"When a new reply is posted in a topic you are watching" to Notification & E-mail.
Is there a way to default that to "Notification & E-mail" for users?
