There are two available system e-mails that serve the forum module and support customization

  • Forums Subscriber Alert for New Posts
  • Forums Subscriber Alert for New Topics

Forums Subscriber Alert for New Posts

Whenever a new post is added on a forum, the system will automatically generate this e-mail and send it out to anyone who has subscribed to the respective thread. The layout is completely customizable, and you can choose from a number of tags, that include:

  • tag_topicname
  • tag_postauthor
  • tag_postdate
  • tag_unsubscribe
  • tag_topicurl
  • tag_recipientname

Users can subscribe to a thread whenever they want to be notified of new posts within that specific thread.

Forums Subscriber Alert for New Topics

If a user is subscribed to the forum, then whenever a new topic is added, he will be notified through this system e-mail. Just as easily customisable, it allows to better refine the experience you want your users to have when interacting with your forums. The tags you can chose from are the same as those available for New Posts.

Users can subscribe to the forum whenever they want to be notified of new topics within that specific forum.
