Is there a simple way for users to sign up for email notifications without having to place the Administrator in the loop?

I know you can have the Admin point SiteAdmin.NotifyList to a wikitrail for each user, but that still requires an Admin to set up each individual user...

Thanks,

JC


Hi i been using PMWIKI for a while but no matter what im not able to find or at least create a SiteAdmin.NotifyList page, could anybody provide more clear instructions regarding how to use this feature? i really need to have it up and running.

thank you.

Dave

P.S. and if the site admins delete this post you can reply to my personal email darkstarxsi@aim.com, thanks again.


This page doesn't exist in a new installation - and you need an Administrator password to create it. See PasswordsAdmin about how to set an administrator password -- then you can link to [[SiteAdmin.NotifyList]] and create the page on your wiki. --Petko February 02, 2010, at 06:44 PM


Thank you from me too, I have the same problem.

But I do not understand: WHERE should one create a link to [[SiteAdmin.NotifyList]]? In pmwiki.php ?

From any page, like your WikiSandbox -- just create a link, then click on it to edit the NotifyList page. Or in the browser's address bar, go to yoursite.com/pmwiki.php?n=SiteAdmin.NotifyList then edit the empty page. --Petko February 04, 2010, at 03:01 AM


Hey Petko thanks for your prompt answer , i have one more question, what about if i would like to use my exchange server to send emails instead of a regular mail server with smtp? another question is how does this Notify script access the server when sending emails? in my case we are Using Exchange 6.0

thanks again


I don't know about Exchange -- PmWiki is using the standard PHP mail() function to send notifications -- and it is normally configured by your hosting provider. If you install and run the server, you need to read the documentation and configure it. --Petko February 09, 2010, at 01:04 PM


I made it work with exchange but it does not send messages the way i have the script set up (first change delay 5 minutes, 24 hours for second notification) it does take a long time to send the email but it does work i tried (SMTP),(your server IP), it might have something to do with exchange i guess. thought you guys might be interested.

Is it possible to make the Notify function show the changed/edited content inside the email? and not that you have to click on the link for "Recent Changes" ? Thank you very much

Another thing. I can get the notify to work when i notify an email from my own domain (f.e. I send it from xx@yy.com to zz@yy.com), but if I set the sent from my domain and try to send the notification to Gmail, the email never comes.

Any clue why?
