    Ever wanted to watch the whole forum instead of individual thread? Now you can (and your members, too). I'm presenting you Forum Watch

    If you are upgrading from 0.9.x to 1.0 please uninstall it before installing again. No data will be lost. Sorry for the problem *sad*

    1. Upload files and directories inside `upload` to XenForo's root directory. Select "Merge" for everything if you are asked
    2. Import the .xml file using XenForo addon importer
    3. Enjoy


    This addon is developed by request from Cory Booth (http://xenforo.com/community/threads/request-watch-forums.9833/). He paid me for this and he allowed me to post this here. Anyone who likes this please consider donate him via PayPal: admin@thebooths.org

    1. Q: Does user receive email for all replies?
      A: Yes. The thread/forum view time is COMPLETELY ignored.
    2. Q: What if a user both watches thread and watches forum?
      A: If user watches a forum, that user won't see the option to watch thread so the only way for somebody to watch both is watching thread first and then start watching the forum. If it's the case, the addon WILL NOT send any notification and let the core XenForo functionality do its job.

    Found the problem....

    Not correct for some reason here - if i upload to xF root then i get the above Error. If i upload everything in the "upload" directory to "xF-root/library/" then it installs fine...

    Got this message this morning:

    cowboyup replied to the thread "[Feb 26, 2011] Polar Plunge (Dumfries, VA)" (in your watched forum "Events").

    When the user who responded was named: Ghettocop...

    Didn't happen for another thread he replied on - only this one... Is it because this is a Event Forum post from Jaxel's Atendo module and not a "real" thread?
  17. Paul

    Paul Well-Known Member

    Actually i prefer it in there. Thats where the other Jaxel scripts live, and makes more sence to keep them all together and out of /root in my oppinion!

    OK... Minor glitch with the emails. The emails say the thread creator made a reply instead of the reply creator

    Example as posted above, but now in a different forum...
    Thread created by UserA
    Thread replied to by UserB

    Email says:

    UserA replied to the thread "XYZ" (in your watched forum "ZYX").

    (When is should be UserB)

    My users and I are getting emails even if choosing "Alert Only".

    Xenforo requires everything to be in /xFRoot/library/. Its the directory auto-require is set up in.
