There's a slight bug or problem with the e-mail notifications for AOL users.The e-mail notices come with a file download requirement to see who replied to the tread.When opened, the background color of the e-mail is black with the link in a dark blue, in a very small font.But no name is listed in the e-mail.Is there any way you can help the Admin of the Board to change to just a normal notice, something that can just be copied and pasted?

Thanks for all your help. smile

Hi,
first I wanna say, that this is a great idea, and the changes are clear stated...

BUT I don't know why, but I get an error:
Missing right bracket at /data1/va/akersche/cgi-bin/ubb/ubb_new_reply.cgi line 541, at end of line syntax error at
/data1/va/akersche/cgi-bin/ubb/ubb_new_reply.cgi line 541, at EOF

It seems right to me...
Could anybody mail me the changed scripet of ubb_new_reply.cgi for UBB 6.03

Thanks for your help in advance
Greetings

Installed w/o a hitch but I had a suggestion. How about being able to turn off this option for certain forums? It's not a big deal for my board but this was suggested by the co-admin of another board (with over 2000 members) when I told her about it. She thought it would tax their mail server too much but that it would be a great help in some of the smaller forums. What do you think?

Was working great till I got to the end. Seems that the last two files you are asking me to edit do not exist in a 6.04 installation. What should I do now? smile

Hi,

is it possible to edit the hack so that users are not just notified, but also get the first columns of the reply ?

Thanks
Dennis

StarGazer,

The last 2 files are public_edit_post.pl and public_new_reply_form.pl, these are found in the Templates subdirectory of the noncgi directory.

How do I remove this hack? Afte installing it I found out that hte server Im hosting my UBB off of has sendmail turned off. So the hack wont work.

I replaced all of the altered files with backed up copies and cleared the cache. But when I create a topic it still gives the option for Email Notification. Someone please tell me what I might be missing.

Thank you

Is there any way to make this so it sends an email to all registered users? Basically, my client wants all registered users to get notifications of all messages posted no matter what. I've been looking into this for months and REALLY need a way to get it done. ANY help would be appreciated. Thanks.
