nice one guys!!

Just wait till u see whats coming next ;-) heh heh.. no Im not telling,, yer jus gonna have to wait!!! lol

RE emails, This should not be too difficult to do, but it really depends on exactly what it is you want.

phpBB will send a new post notification out to you when one other person has replied to a post you are watching, and I think it would be quite easy to include the body of the post in with the email.

However, phpBB does not send any more notifications of new posts out until you have logged into the board again (this makes a lot of sense if you think about it - imagine the number of emails you would get if one was sent out for every new post).

So, I can see a conflict in design interests here, on the one hand, yeah great that you get the body of the post, but on the other hand, this could lead to you missing subsequent posts because youre reading the first reply in your email program... and ultimately, it is just one click away!

does this make sense?

Have a good day

Steve - on the old board (& on SNWMF board) every thread reply was sent thru mail so you were able to read every reply without getting into the forum itself, searching thru the threads to find the right one & having to find within the thread itself what are old posts & what is new...this feature worked very good & you couldn't miss any post.

If i understand correctly it seems that it isn't possible with the current version of the forum software as you'll recieve only some of the replies by this case it would be better to leave it to work as it does today, unless you can find a way to get ALL the thread replies to be sent by mail...
