how to email threads

  • Hi,
    Is there a way for this new forum software to email ALL (not just subscribed) threads a la Yahoo Groups?

    Thanks.

  • Kaseya,

    Please enable this functionality! The old forum had this ability and you've taken a step backwards...

  • Hello - RSS works great for open/public forums. It will not work with private/close to the public forums.

    You can use vBulletins conditional templates to limit usergroups. I am pretty sure that the RSS feeds will also use the forum user permissions as well. Alternatively, you can also use this plugin (vBulletin.org) and it will not only put a RSS icon in the footer automatically, it also plays well with user group permissions (from at least seeing the RSS url).

    People could probably still guess the other RSS feed URLs but if you needed too, you can change the forumid number in the database (phpmyadmin) to a large and random number and it would take forever to guess. Say you changed a hidden "kaseya staff" or whatever forum from forumid=30 to forumid=9912345678 you would be able to ban that IP before they ever were to actually make it to the RSS feed.

    Just a thought. Smile

  • I used RSS on the old forum with Google Desktop as long as my cookie was in place.

  • Some RSS readers can authenticate...

    We use it for SharePoint and works well, you could at least turn it on for those of us that choose to use it Confused

    What about the original question (subscribing to entire forums instead of individual threads)? Can we please turn that on? Smile

  • Yeah, but then we'd all be able to see the posts that Kaseya decides aren't complimentary to them and that they delete... Wink
