  • Email address to notify option

    I posted this once before... wondering again if anyone knows the answer to my question:

    Using v2.01, I need to add more email addresses in the "Emails addresses to notify when there is a new post" option than the field will currently allow. Is there a way I can alter the maximum number of characters permitted in this?


    Thanks!

    Run this query thru phpMyAdmin / Telnet:
    Code:
    ALTER TABLE forum CHANGE newpostemail newpostemail mediumtext NOT NULL
    Now you can add as many addresses as you wish.

      Thanks, but we don't have telnet access.

      Is there any other way we can achieve this?

          For the "email to notify new members" function, can we change the our email address in the From: field to the new member address so i can use a autoresponder to send out a welcome email?

          Thanks

            In register.php, find this line:
            Code:
                mail ($newuseremail,$subject,$message,"From: \"$bbtitle Mailer\" <$webmasteremail>");
            and change it to this:
            Code:
                mail ($newuseremail,$subject,$message,"From: \"$bbtitle Mailer\" <$email>");

                Thanks - I needed this too.

                Maybe it's an impossible question, but would it be fair to say that future upgrades to vBulletin are unlikely to attempt to 'fix' this field length back to what it was originally?

                  Very unlikely, unless there is a major change in the way it works and then it will be changed.
                  I doubt it though.

                  Save this thread as a 'hack' you installed so you know where it is.
