Is it possible to have an admin or moderator emailed when a new post / new topic is made on the forum ?

If not I will add in this functionality and send it on for inclusion, but I want to check first.

Well.. To get notified by a new topic, the admin could watch the forum, by clicking on the "Watch this forum" link.

Howeve, I know that you want to get this "automatically".

Well, for that, we need some sort of new code

Hi Guys!!!

It's an interesting funcionallity ! Ocurred me an idea that would be usefull...

When we choice to Watch this forum, some table(s) is/are probably flagged to do a "relationship" linking one of two alternatives:

1. The topics watched by an user or;
2. The users watching a topic.

So, discovering what is JForum's procedure to "Watch this forum", I think would be possible to create some engine stablishing a automatic way to flag the correct table's column, informing that the user "admin", for example, want to be emailed of all the topics creations/posts...

Probably Rafael could tell us what is this table... and we (you and me) would change some ideas about that... I would like this mechanism too!!! We could develop it easily, I think so... ;)

I am looking for a forum that allows a user to decide whether to receive new posts when they are created. And it could come in digest form once a day or at the time it is created.

A moderator for a forum should always receive a notification.
