default email notification preferences

I have followed the instructions here: http://vanillaforums.org/docs/advancedconfig to change the default email notification preferences in the /conf/config.php file.

I have added:

    $Configuration['Garden']['Email']['ActivityComment'] = TRUE;
    $Configuration['Garden']['Email']['AddedToConversation'] = TRUE;
    $Configuration['Garden']['Email']['BookmarkComment'] = TRUE;
    $Configuration['Garden']['Email']['CommentMention'] = TRUE;
    $Configuration['Garden']['Email']['ConversationMessage'] = TRUE;
    $Configuration['Garden']['Email']['DiscussionComment'] = TRUE;
    $Configuration['Garden']['Email']['DiscussionMention'] = TRUE;
    $Configuration['Garden']['Email']['WallComment'] = TRUE;

To the end of my config.php file but new users seem unnaffected by this change. The email preferences remain the same and are unchanged from the default install.

Thanks for your help in advance

    It looks like that documentation page is a tad outdated.

    $Configuration['Preferences']['Email']['ActivityComment'] = TRUE;
    $Configuration['Preferences']['Email']['AddedToConversation'] = TRUE;
    $Configuration['Preferences']['Email']['BookmarkComment'] = TRUE;
    $Configuration['Preferences']['Email']['CommentMention'] = TRUE;
    $Configuration['Preferences']['Email']['ConversationMessage'] = TRUE;
    $Configuration['Preferences']['Email']['DiscussionComment'] = TRUE;
    $Configuration['Preferences']['Email']['DiscussionMention'] = TRUE;
    $Configuration['Preferences']['Email']['WallComment'] = TRUE;
    

    Please note that we've recently changed the types of notifications you can receive. Have a look in your /conf/config-defaults.php to see what your particular installation supports. You'll see these various configuration settings there. If you want to change from the default copy from config-defaults.php, don't edit config-defaults.php.

  • This information is pretty useful but outdated. I also could be presented in a way that's easier to understand. I gleaned some useful info from this discussion and from the conf/config-defaults.php file.

    If you want to change the default notification options for new users, these options can be set be adding the following into conf/config.php:

    // Notification preferences set for all new users, custom settings
    // write on my wall
    //$Configuration['Preferences']['Email']['WallComment']     = '0';
    //$Configuration['Preferences']['Popup']['WallComment']     = '1';
    
    //$Configuration['Preferences']['Email']['ConversationMessage'] = '1';
    //$Configuration['Preferences']['Popup']['ConversationMessage'] = '1';
    
    // comment on my bookmarked discussion
    //$Configuration['Preferences']['Email']['BookmarkComment'] = '1';
    //$Configuration['Preferences']['Popup']['BookmarkComment'] = '1';
    
    //$Configuration['Preferences']['Email']['ActivityComment'] = '0';
    //$Configuration['Preferences']['Popup']['ActivityComment'] = '1';
    
    // comment on my discussion
    $Configuration['Preferences']['Email']['DiscussionComment'] = '1';
    //$Configuration['Preferences']['Popup']['DiscussionComment']   = '1';
    
    // mention me
    $Configuration['Preferences']['Email']['Mention']       = '1';
    
    // mention me in discussion
    //$Configuration['Preferences']['Popup']['DiscussionMention']   = '1';
    
    // mention me in comment
    $Configuration['Preferences']['Email']['CommentMention']    = '1';
    //$Configuration['Preferences']['Popup']['CommentMention']  = '1';
    

    If someone could fill in what "ConversationMessage" and "ActivityComment" options notify you for, that would be helpful I think.

    I tried to include all the notification options, however I'm unclear if the "merged with" lines from the config-defaults are indicating deprecated options or not.

    Conversation message is getting a notification when a new PM has been received. Activity comments are when someone comments on the activity feed.

    Yes, they are.
