Question: how to receive updates, not original post?
I have a question related to the dilemma so cunningly resolved by Boone here:
Scenario: (1) a forum thread, within which Person A posts a new message. (2) Second Person B sees the message in the activity stream, and because the forums do not allow for direct replies (why not?!), B presses reply in the activity stream.
We are using a plugin to make these B-replies visible in the forum thread, to keep conversations together, but my dilemma is this:
With every new B-reply via the method described in (2) above, notifications go out that read: “Person A posted on the forum topic ‘What a wonderful forum thread’ in the group Replies & Responses,” quoting the original message text from (1).
What it should be doing is rather: “Person B responded to the post of Person A in the forum thread ‘What a wonderful forum thread’ in the group Replies & Responses,” quoting the text from the B-reply in (2).
Is this a problem coming from the notifications plugin at all, and (how) can it be resolved?
