This XenForo 2.x addon sends daily, weekly or emails to users with a list of top new threads and top updated threads.


CRITICAL NOTE 15 SEP 2020
If you are running v4.x of this addon DO NOT upgrade to v5.x yet - there is a major issue with the addon sending too many emails that I'm still trying to debug
If you have already upgraded to v5.x - please either disable the addon, or put it into test mode until I can issue a fix.


Important changes for v5.0:

  • the default option is now to honour the "Receive new and update emails" option in user preferences. You will need to turn this off in the settings to retain the current behaviour.
  • if you use either of my SparkPostMail addons (v1.x or v2.x), you must install the What's New Digest adapter for SparkPost addon - some integration functionality has been removed from this addon to the separate adapter addon to maximise compatibility across XF versions.

Widget hints:
  • To hide the widget from guests - set the Display condition to: $xf.visitor.user_id
  • To hide the widget from guests and from users who have already opted in - set the Display condition to: $xf.visitor.user_id && !$xf.visitor.Option.whatsnewdigest_email

2. Add any HTML to the top or bottom of emails:

Note that the default mail setting is to have a 600px maximum width with a 10px padding, so any image you include must be no wider than 580px - unless you adjust the email width.

An absolute great addon that is extremely well thought out from a great developer. Highly recommend.
Excellent developer and add-on with many options. I really like that it's honouring Receive news and updates from us by email now.

I really like that it's very customizable (opt-in or opt-out) with daily, weekly or monthly email digest.

Thank you for creating this, Simon.
Thanks for this add-on. It is very useful for me for notice to my users when I put new content in my forums.
Excellent work and a really smooth process getting it done. It offers an excellent quality of add-on and I strongly recommend it.
I have now been using this for sometime and so far have had no issues with it at all. I can also see a vast improvement on my members interaction with my forum. Really a great one to add to your forum.
