(HELP!) Notify group members of changes via email

    Hi guys,

    Buddypress has been a wonderful application for me. However, i do have a little difficulty resolving this issue.

    When a group is created, there is an option “Notify group members of changes via email” available via the group admin page. However I seem to be unable to activate it. Whenever I select ‘Yes’, it will switched back to ‘No’ after the page loads.

    I have been considering also to have an RSS feed for each group page, so users may subscribe to it and be notified of any group changes…

    Has anyone been able to do that?

    Thanks a million!

    Howdy. The option on the groups admin page ‘notify group members…’ should default to ‘no’ on page reload. I haven’t used it but it looks like what that option refers to are changes on that specific page only. New Group News! That kinda thing. It looks like the purpose is to give you the option each time you change something there to send out notifications if you choose to.

    As I was looking in the code, at what that was supposed to do, I realized that it would never do that. No notifications could ever go out. Bug in the code.

    At the moment that little option doesn’t do anything. I’ll post the problem in Trac. Hey you found a bug! We gotta start passing out little ‘flyswatter’ badges to people. Maybe “Have you swatted a bug today?” pins. :)

    I know. Take your meds Burt.

    Try posting a separate topic on the RSS question. Get more results other than ‘I dunno’ from me.

    I don’t know if this is an official bump or not… The issue was addressed here: http://trac.buddypress.org/ticket/1973

    I do want to start a discussion about how to make this feature more intuitive from a usability perspective. One of my clients and me were perplexed by this until we started reading up on it in the BuddyPress forums and trac.

    Is there a better place to hold this discussion?

    Thanks!
