You can set the templates directory to anything in plugin.json, I think it defaults to just templates if you don't specify.
Them you match the path from views, so it would be templates/emails where you put them.
Has anyone who runs NodeBB on Heroku configured email notification? In particular, I want to let site visitors know when someone replies to their post. The daily digest is less important.
It looks like I need to add a 3rd party mail service like postmark or mandrill to the Heroku account for the site, and then add a plugin for the service. Is there anything else required, or time wasters to avoid?
The second one could probably be achieved with 3rd party tools already. The best one I can think of would be IFTTT. Each category has an RSS feed, therefore if RSS feed gets updated. Send email. Full IFTTT support would be great, I'm not sure how that would work, but being able to set up that sort of thing would be bloody brilliant. Maybe even baked into nodebb, so we can set up "tasks" similar to how stamplay.com works. Just with a betteR UI.
