Hi all,
I did a search but returned too many results that were not quite what I was looking for. I have a board member that wants to know if there is a way to have an email notification every time someone posts a new topic. He understands about the 'notify' on topics that he's already following, but he is looking for a way to see any new post topics that arrive without actually visiting the site. Which, I told him, kind of defeats the purpose, but I'd ask on his behalf..

So.. is there?



If you don't have a lot of boards he could go to each one and click 'Notify'.
DO NOT pm me for support!


that will not notify of replies to topics, just new topics being made in the board.


rss in mail program ? :O)

Looks like a10 is onto something. That appears to be what he's looking for.. I'll search on here for a how-to unless someone has a faster plug-in or something like that.


there is a link for RSS in the footer of your forum. the user just needs an RSS reader to "read" the feed.


Ya know, I never noticed that. I'll mention that to the guy but I'm sure that finding a RSS reader is going to be above his skill level. It's above mine :-)

You can tell them, and try it out for yourself too, that most browsers these days include an RSS reader. ;)

Do you still need help with this? :)
