• @a_5mith @Community-Representatives @psychobunny Can we have this feature to assign daily digest as default.


  • On a side note I was trying to add community representatives through @mention but the link seems to be not active. Please refer my previous comment


  • Hi Team,

    Im using NodeBB v0.6.0. I have enabled Follow Topics you create and you reply to. But i didnt get any email when others posted information in the topic which i created. Im using Mailgun for Email. Is there any plugin which will trigger email to users who are tagged in a category.

    No, you can only tag in posts, test the email works by going to Admin ACP, then in email there's a button to test that the emails work. It's not a massively used feature around here, so things like this can be broken in updates, and no one notices. 👍


  • Test mail works fine and daily digest works fine. But I'm not getting mail when others posted information in the topic which I created. I enabled Follow Topic which i create and and reply to. Kindly guide me how to use this feature in NodeBB.

    Requirement : Need to get email notification when people post the information in the Topic i created.

    I think this is a seriously missing feature.


  • Follow topic just notifies you of replies. The problem with emailing on every post in every topic that's followed is the number of emails that will be sent. You'll be spending a lot on something like mandrill etc. Add to that the emailing regulations on spam.It's a huge grey area that would require very careful planning. If I came home to 60 emails regarding posts in a topic. I'd be pretty annoyed at that. Perhaps emails should be sent with new replies after an hour or so of inactivity in that topic.


  • EDIT - I just realized I misinterpreted the settings and this currently works as I would expect, sorry for the interruption.

    Sorry to revive this, but I also wholeheartedly agree this is a required feature, potentially with @a_5mith 's suggestion implemented for busier forums.

  • Community Rep

    There's also pushbullet integration but I'm not sure if it's enabled on this forum. @psychobunny ?

  • Admin

    That'd be @julian's plugin, perhaps disabled because out of date with latest.

    Sounds like this plugin could be easily modified to handle the above use case:

    Would end up working well with the reply-by-email plugin 😉


  • @psychobunny How to use this plugin? (https://github.com/NodeBB/nodebb-plugin-category-notifications). I installed it and activated it, then I restarted the Nodebb forum, but I do not see anything changed. What to do?


  • Oh, meanwhile has appeared the "Subscribe" button. Thanks!
