How to show a thread to all users?

Discussion in 'XenForo Questions and Support' started by Stanley Lyndon, Dec 2, 2011.

  1. I want to notify all members in the forum about a giveaway. What is the best way to let them all know about this new thread?

    And, how do I set it so that everyone registering from now on will also get the notification automatically - that is, to check out this particular thread?

    Thank you.

    Use a Notice.
     
  3. Thanks. I searched but couldn't find. Can you please direct me to the exact help page for the same?

    So I suppose there is no feature to specify a mandatory thread viewing so far.

    There is no function like this for XF core.
    But I used this for years as a mod on VB and I am getting a coder to make it for XF.

    Notification Add-on. (not ready yet)
    Will notify a usergroup (or several) on all posts in a forum. Admin adds the usergroup/s to the forum settings.
    Will notify a usergroup (or several) on all posts on a thread. Admin adds the usergroup/s to the thread settings.

    I also want each user to be set to a minimum "membership"for notifications on one category, or three forums. Default setting will be "membership" of a generic intros/ gossip/ support category.
    User can change to another category/ or select 3 forums from list/ or add more, in Profile page.
    I guess I could ask for this second function to be toggled Enable/ Disable to make it better for other admin choices.

    Notice. It will notify people whom are *ON* your site.
