Can you verify if this is happening to you? 


This is a test of my theory.

I WAS set for auto notification, but now my notification is disabled.  I have to manually re-add notifications.

Summary:  If you use the Quick-Quote, then you have to manually revisit the thread and ask for notifications again.

Okay, they released a *new* Quick Reply mod .. specifically for YaBB v2.2.1 (2 days ago):

http://www.boardmod.org/yabb/YaBB.pl?board=beta_y22;action=display;num=120631230...

It'll take me a little to figure out exactly how to implement, cuz I also have installed the Quick quote mod, which is dependent on the Quick Reply mod. But good news nonetheless.

That Jet Li guy (from Germany) is a coding madman.

They are calling it "Advanced Version." Guess we'll have to install to see what is "advanced".

It's still officially in 'beta' but I ain't scared. =)

Speaking of "notifications," John .. I also noted they have an "Advanced" notification mod:

http://www.boardmod.org/yabb/YaBB.pl?board=beta_y22;action=display;num=120591418...

Does that sound like something we want?

Update: The new Quick-quote mod is already contained in the (new) Quick-Reply mod. Cool. That's how it should be.

From what I read of the "Advanced Notification Mod", it appears that it puts back in the thread title in the email notifications.

As you probably remember, that used to be there but got dropped with this last round of updates.

Personally, I thought it was always a nice feature because when you saw the email in your inbox, you knew which thread it was referring to.

Not sure why it disappeared, but my personal vote would be to bring it back.  Thanks!!   Smiley

I uninstalled the old Quick Reply & Quick quote mods, and installed the new "Advanced" Quick Reply mod, which contains Quick quote, altho it does not seem to be working properly. Will troubleshoot.

I see the following text, which doesn't look right:

{yabb qqname}  and {yabbqquote}

Otherwise, you can now set both
box size
(height/width) and
font size
for the Quick Reply box. Pretty cool.

The quick quote function isn't working.

I figured it out .. had to re-up (previously modded) Display.template file to my /blk_gry3d folder .. since we use a different style/template. This file was UNmodded when I UNinstalled the old Quick-Reply and Quick-quote mods.

All seems to be working very nicely now, no?

I make my box-size long as possible width-wise, and slightly taller, height-wise. Plus I prefer 13px font size.

Very nice.  The entire new post is in the email, which was a real surprise.

You have too much time on your hands ...  Smiley  Smiley

Thanks.

John,

If someone *modifies* a post, do you also receive a notification email? .. or only when there is a new post?

No, at least from what I have seen.  When you first save your reply, it appears the email is sent.  I've seen a few emails that were different from the post when I went to the website to view it.

When I first asked about getting more info on the emails, the old yabb version sent a "standard" email, but the subject contained the Subject Title of the post, so if you saw your inbox with 10 emails, you could easily see from the thread title, which one had a reply.  It was a nice summary.

I know of other forum boards that are like yabb is now:  you get an email with the contents of the post.

Either (or both) are nice additions.

Because of the (previous) small text size, I almost always modified my posts, to either correct spelling or to make something clearer.  Now, since I know the *first* reply is emailed out, I tend to spend more time before hitting reply.

Also at one time there was a small "post modified on ..." added whenever you modified your post.  I have mixed feelings on that.

P.S. I hope all these mods won't make it harder for you to upgrade in the future, or make it a longer process.

So what happened to the small enhancement that just showed the thread title in the email?  That seemed like a small yet beneficial addition.

Mine is just one opinion.  You have many members (and LOTS of guests) so let them weigh in.
