Hi All,
As an administrator I want an email from every new post>
In Threads version 6.1 I used this blok in bleu wich I found on this board.
When I paste it in to Version 6.2 it works fine but every time when the mail is send out I see a MySqL error for a few seconds.
What can I do to fix it?
Thanks in advance,
Pim Foppen

# This code snippet will email every new post to the moderator(s) of the

What error are you seeing?

Is the prefix to your tables "w3t_"? Or do you use a custom database prefix.

Code
SELECT Mod_Username<br />FROM w3t_Moderators<br />WHERE Mod_Board = '$Board_q'


That won't work, because Mod_Username has been replaced by Mod_Uid. Do you need the email sent to all the moderators, or only to user #2?

Like Dave said the Mod_Username column is invalid now. Below is the proper code. I tested this on my test forum and it works.

//-------------Fool Moon Modified-------------------------
$EmailBody = $Body;
$EmailBody = preg_replace("/<([^>])*>/","",$EmailBody);
$newline = "\n";
if (stristr(PHP_OS,"win")) {
$newline = "\r\n";
}

// Find the moderators to notify
$query = "
SELECT Mod_Uid
FROM w3t_Moderators
WHERE Mod_Board = '$Board_q'
";
$sth = $dbh -> do_query($query);

$mailer = new mailer;
$header = $mailer -> headers();
$blurb = "has just posted in : ";
// Construct the message body
$msg = "$postername $blurb $Title $newline{$config['phpurl']}/showthreaded.php?Cat=$Cat&Board=$Board&Number=$Mnumber$newline$newline$EmailBody";

// Find the email address for each moderator
while ( list($Mod) = $dbh -> fetch_array($sth)) {
$Mod_q = addslashes($Mod);
$query = "
SELECT U_Email
FROM w3t_Users
WHERE U_Username = '$Mod_q'
";
$sti = $dbh -> do_query($query);
list($to) = $dbh -> fetch_array($sti);
// Mail the package out
mail("$to","$Subject",$msg,$header);
}

// Then find the email address for the main administrator
$query = "
SELECT U_Email
FROM w3t_Users
WHERE U_Number = 2
";
$sth = $dbh -> do_query($query);
list($to) = $dbh -> fetch_array($sth);
// Mail the package out
mail("$to","$Subject",$msg,$header);

Hi Chuck

Does the above do this........

Admin receives ALL new posts.

Mods only the forums that they moderate.

Just what I need


Thanks

Hi Chuck

That didn't work for me.

Gave me an 500 internal server error.

So I took OUT .....this part

===============================================
// Find the email address for each moderator
while ( list($Mod) = $dbh -> fetch_array($sth)) {
$Mod_q = addslashes($Mod);
$query = "
SELECT U_Email
FROM w3t_Users
WHERE U_Username = '$Mod_q'
";
$sti = $dbh -> do_query($query);
list($to) = $dbh -> fetch_array($sti);
// Mail the package out
mail("$to","$Subject",$msg,$header);
}
========================================

This worked and just emailed the admin but not the moderator.

So is there something needing changed in that part? lol


Thanks

$Mod is a user number, not a user name. Try this:

Code
// Find the email address for each moderator <br />while ( list($Mod) = $dbh -> fetch_array($sth)) { <br />$query = " <br />   SELECT U_Email <br />   FROM w3t_Users <br />   WHERE U_Number = $Mod <br />";


(The addslashes() isn't needed, and the quotes around $Mod aren't needed, since $Mod is a number, not a string.)

Same thread over at infopop:
http://community.infopop.net/2/OpenTopic?a=tpc&s=729094322&f=5163077913&m=7963092986

That code works on <6.2 but its trivial to change to adding a join for the UIDs now.
(one minor bug in it, 3rd last line should read:
$dbh -> finish_sth($sth_mod);
)
