XF 1.3 Watch a thread, make default email, not alert

#1
Hi

When you set watch a thread, by default notification is by alert. Where can I change it to email for everyone that chooses to watch a thread?

Thanks

Have a look at the "Default Registration Values" option (you can use the ACP search in the upper right to find it).

Sorry, this does not change the default eg on my forum:

Watch Forum - Football Discussion Forum
Send notifications via:

The default is alerts, I want the default to be email.

It will only change it for new members. If you want it changed for existing members you will need to run a query against the DB.

Code:
UPDATE xf_user_option SET default_watch_state = 'watch_email'
That will make all members automatically watch threads and receive email when they are updated.
