#361 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Group forum posts & notifications

Description

I am finding discussion involvement is stalling due to the fact that members cannot opt to receive the following types of notifications:

For a group you are a member of:

  1. a new forum topic is created
  2. a member posts to a topic you created
  3. a member posts to a topic you have posted on

One issue is a tad thorny: the case where a member creates a topic in a group you are a member of. you receive an email notifying you of this topic. Receiving all future posts on this topic should probably be opt in (or perhaps default to off unless you either opt in or comment yourself - in which case you'd default to all subsequent email notifications unless you opt out)

  • Keywords needs-patch added
  • Milestone set to Future Release

This is on the roadmap for 1.3+.

#6 @cnorris23

  • Milestone changed from Future Release to 1.3

On second thought, let's shoot for 1.3.

#7 @boonebgorges

  • Component set to Core
  • Milestone changed from 1.3 to 1.4

I don't think this is going to make it for 1.3. It'd have to be part of a bigger discussion about how extensive the core notifications should be, as opposed to the several plugins available to enhance notifications.

#8 @boonebgorges

  • Keywords group forum removed
  • Milestone 1.6 deleted
  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Severity set to normal
  • Status changed from new to closed

There is a popular plugin that handles this pretty well http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/buddypress-group-email-subscription/ Currently the plugin is pretty regularly maintained. In light of this, I don't see a pressing argument for including it in BP core.
