Hi guys,

I configured the smtp in the web.config and i enable the SSL via the admin panel everything works, when there is a new topic in the discussion i get a mail to be informed.
 
I wanted to ask if there is a possibilty to get a mail when a new discussion is created ?

If yes, how to allow the smtp to send mail to inform about the new discussion , there is maybe other configuration in the admin panel to do ?



Thank you

Hi Mazen,
I'm not sure which discussion functionality you're referring to, but by default users can subscribe to discussion boards and discussion topics to receive mail notifications for them. As for discussion board creation is not possible and the only ones who will be notified when a new discussion board is created are the admins.

Let me know if you were referring to some other functionality.

Regards,
Vedran

Hi,

Users have to manually subscribe to a discussion board in order to get notifications when new topics are created in a board. After that users won't receive any notifications for the topic unless they manually subscribe themselves to the created topic, users are also as well subscribed to a topic when they reply automatically although you have the option to opt out of from this when replying. These are the 2 scenarios when MonoX sends out notifications related to discussions.

Since you'd be doing this for groups you'd have to develop a custom functionality to send an e-mail notification to all members of the group.

Hi Mzilic,

Thank you for answering.

Yes i would like to develop a custom functionality to send mails to inform all users in the group that a new discussion have been created.

You have an idea ?

Hello,

I'd recommend developing a custom functionality for this. In the discussion messages module you should detect if a post was made inside a group and then you should fetch all the members of the group and finally send out an e-mail.
