moderating issue

Is it possible to remove email updates for updated threads?
For example, members who had their access to a certain portion of the forum, removed, continue to receive email updates whenever there is a new thread in that section.

Specifically on a global scale, as opposed to going through each removed member's profile.

Ah, I didn't spot this. To ensure capturing developer attention for bugs it's better to create a bug ticket or post to the tracker, although usually I do notice bug reports of the forum.

Anyway, it seems to be a bug in v7 and lower. Did you remove group permissions when editing the forum, then find users in those groups had not lost access? That is the bug I just found when reviewing the code.

Here is a fix:
» Download: ocf_groups_action2.php (18 Kb, 102 downloads so far)

This does not affect v8 users as the permission checks in v8 happen in real-time, rather than it removing trackings when group/permission changes happen. So nobody should upload the fix to a v8 site.

This fix is not retroactive. You'll need to go and edit the forum again, toggling access on, then edit again, toggling it off. This will make it sense the change and adjust the tracking records.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
