Forum: How to subscribe to Announcements?

Post by chris_goe » Thu Sep 17, 2015 8:30 am

A similar question came up in the past, but I still wonder: how can I subscribe to the Announcments thread to not miss any new S9Y releases when they come out?

It was suggested to subscribe to the blog's RSS feed, but then I'd have to refresh and look at the RSS feed every now and then. I'd really prefer an email based notification.

Another suggestion was to subscribe to the SourceForge project - but according to the green download button the latest version is v2.0.1. And also: I don't trust Sourceforge any more :-\

Any other other suggestions? Can the phpBB installation maybe tweaked to provide a "subscribe" button to the Announcments thread?

Why don't you take this? Its as good as the announcement thread: http://feeds.feedburner.com/s9y

Take the Serendipity autoupdater plugin and set the S9y configuration option to use it with 2.0.x.

We don't have a general or section email forum subscription. And the former Mailing List ist more or less just a github developer commit and comment redirector. Latest build is on GitHub now, since SF was down when we released. The rest is answered.

I don't know. I am pretty sure there is a way, since that is a big project and for sure being asked before. Someone with Knowledge should find out and tell us.

Otherwise I am working on a Serendipity Plugin which hooks into the dashboard for this (as a blog feed reader). I just need to add some cachings stuff and polish it up a bit, when I find the time to do. :)

It already exists... scroll to the bottom of the page of all announcements, or any other forum... there should be a link to subscribe. I believe subscriptions can also be managed from the user control panel.

Don is right.

One has to be registered and logged in. In such case one can find at the bottem a button "Thema beobachten".

A click on it and one will get emails, if someone posts here.

The best thing is to subscribe to the blog.s9y.org RSS feed! :)
