Add question with email notification

Post by benkunz » Tue Jan 10, 2017 9:22 am

Hi,
I'm trying to set up phpmyfaq so that the person in charge of a given category would be notified if someone ask a question in this given category. so far I could not manage to have the responsible of the category to receive an email. The category has an owner, and the owner has an email. But it is always the admin of the whole app that gets notified. I've tried to create a group, add the responsible into the group, and set the group as the moderator of the category. didn't help.
Is what I want to do doable ? if yes, how ?
I'm running version 2.9.5 and have also tried to apply this https://github.com/thorsten/phpMyFAQ/co ... 586f275f5e patch, but didn't make a difference.
thanks for your help

Hi,

do you get e-mails at all sent by phpMyFAQ?

Hi, I was wondering if this issue was ever resolved? I have the same problem. I'm using 2.9.6.

Global admin email is working fine, but neither Category Owner nor users in Moderator group are receiving emails.

Thanks very much for this awesome software Thorsten!

i have the same problem!
In my case only global admins and category owners are receiving emails but no moderator groups.

I'm looking for a solution to inform moderator groups about new faqs and new open questions.

I tested version 2.9.6 and 2.9.7.
In these two versions the problems is still there.
The permission level ist set to medium.
