Email notification to Group on New Entry/Article

Post by nadianeto » Tue Jan 12, 2016 12:36 pm

Hello,

I've been using phpmyfaq for quite some year and a half, and its doing almost what i could ask for :P
But there's a feature that i can't seem to understand, which is, is it possible when a new Entry/Article on a Category is added, can it be notified to the Group which is associated with?
I'm not talking about New FAQ (which is on front end), nor New Question. The feature is on admin board.

I've been searching on this board, and what i see is people having problem sending emails, or refering the New Faq when only the owner or adming can receive notification email, which are not the case i'm looking for.

If my question was quite confusing, tell me to add more specific details.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

you can add a moderator group to specific categories, they will receive e-mail notifications.

Hello Thorsten,

Firstly, thank you for responding.

I've done what you suggested, dunno if the procedure i made is the same as add a moderator group.

Procedure:
1 Add group xpto
2 add a user abcd1
3 edit category service1, and associate the group xpto
4 create an article and associate category=service1 and access restrit to group xpto
5 activate article and save
Result: no email notification was sent

Is this the right procedure to accomplish what you suggested?


Thanks in advance.

Hi,

Yep, no e-mail at all on creating articles.
email works on:
- user registers on portal;
- user adds topic;
- user adds question;
- user made a comment;

The only log i know, its the one i send as attach, which is xampp sendmail debug.log :x
Not sure if theres is another log which can be more accurate.

Thanks.

I'm on 2.9.4, and the notifications to moderators does seem to be broken.

The problem seems to be with this bit, in ajaxservice.php:

Code: Select all

$groupId = $category->getModeratorGroupId($_category);
That 'getModeratorGroupId()' function is just not working. Other email notifications are working, so I know that sending mail is not the issue.

Was this fixed as I still don't get emails as a group member when new articles are posted.
