I did a little digging and could not find answers to email integration functionality. I even read release notes. So…
###What might be missing from email integration.
First, my only working knowledge of email integration is this forum. If there are other plugins that do what I need, then I'd like to hear about them.
The daily digest emails are almost worthless. Why? I don't care about "My next theme" or "Fresh droplet, new install, new issues." I get a daily email about topics I may or may not care about.
I don't get email notifications that are standard on old school forums, like phpBB and SMF. This should really be a black eye for nodeBB.
- New replies to my topic.
- Subscribe to replies to a topic.
- Unsubscribe to replies to a topic.
- Direct Messages (actually, does nodeBB have this?)
- Notification emails should include "No notifications today". At least this tells me I may have have notification.
Without proper email notifications, this forum becomes an island that I forget to visit. I only stay subscribed to the daily digest in hopes that one day it will come in with content that I care about.
Sorry to be harsh – but as usual – I really really really want to install nodeBB but basic email functionality is preventing me from doing so.
Finally, I really hope that this post was horribly misguided and I'm completely wrong about everything above and all of this is already available.
