  • auto subscribe users, to all forums?

    Hello

    Could anyone please tell me how to auto subscribe all users to all threads they have posted in,and elapse after 24 hours if they dont reply? So that if anyone makes a post that the user has already posted in it will send them an email? without them having to select it in the thread?

    thanks

    Hello,

    There are 2 steps you have to take to update your forum to use these settings. One would be for new users, and one for existing users.

    Please note, in order to have permission to run an SQL query you must be set to do so in the config.php file. Check the online manual on how to do this.

    First step: Update the forum settings for new users.

    Admin Control Panel > vBulletin Options > vBulletin Options > User Registration Options > Default Registration Options

    The user options on the New User creation form in in the Admin Control Panel, as well as the New User registration form will default to the following settings.

    Automatic Thread Subscription Mode > Instant Email Notification, or if you prefer, Daily Email Notification.


    Second step: Update the forum settings for existing users.

    Admin Control Panel > Maintenance > Execute SQL Query > Automatic Query

    Helpful, predefined queries for mass updating the settings of users and posts. Once a query is executed it can not be reversed.

    Select the query you want to run from the dropdown, in this case the Instant Email Notification, or if you prefer, Daily Email Notification. Let the query run, this will update that settings for ALL the users.


    Good luck tweaking your forum.
