Enables email subscription to Ploneboard posts

Project Description


Products.PloneboardSubscription enables users to subscribe/unsubscribe to email notification to a Ploneboard forum or a particular conversation,

and has an option to automatically add as subscriber a member adding a comment to a conversation.

A “Subscribe/Unsubscribe” link is provided on the forum or conversation and if the user chooses to subscribe, any further comments made to the forum or conversation triggers an email.


The product creates a tool “portal_pbnotification” at the Plone site which contains some parameters that can be set:

  • debug mode : if checked, mail is not sent but only logged !
  • send interval : in seconds. The email contains modifications done during the last send interval.
  • last sent : int time of the last send verification (not to be manually changed…)
  • html mail format : must be checked if the email template contains html.
  • mail template : the mail template can be plain text or html.
    The following special parts will be replaced:
    • [PORTAL_TITLE] : by the portal title
    • [URLS] : by the modified conversation urls
    • [FORUMS] : by the modified conversation urls and the corresponding forum (only in html format)
    • [COMMENTS] : by the modified conversation urls, the corresponding forum and the new comments (only in html format)
  • auto_subscribe : if checked, each member adding a comment will be added in the conversation subscribers list.
