      I currently have it setup so that users will receive email notifications of all new topics and replies for any groups to which they are a member.

      Does this plugin allow the user to stop receiving notifications from one specific group? Or will it unsubscribe them from all emails?

      If the latter, is there a way to control this?

      Specifically, I have a “support” forum which all my users are automatically a member of. Any way to keep them from being subscribed to just one specific group?

      Attached are settings screenshots.

      Thanks!

      Hi Mark,

      The Opt out plugin will give your users 3 options as attached below. You should probably select Override Subscriptions to Forums and Override Subscriptions to Topics for best results.

      I’ll have to take a closer look at how Buddypress controls groups (if it’s via subscriptions or some other way) to see if opt-out would natively handle unsubcribes.

      Stay tuned!

      Cheers,
      Vinny

      OK, so I checked the code and confirmed that the BuddyPress Bridge currently only adds recipients to the notification list.

      I’ll have to update Opt-Out and BuddyPress Bridge to handle removing users from a group when opting out.

      Would that cover your requirements?

      Cheers,
      Vinny

      I think so.

      To be sure we’re both on the same page, any opt out link in an email would be specific to the group/forum the email originated from. Is that what you’re saying?

      Ie. something like:
      Click here to stop receiving emails from the [forum name] forum.

      Exactly. But they also have the ability to select what the opt-out link does (block everything or unsubscribe), so that’s what’s going to kick in when the link is clicked.

      Should I purchase opt out then?

      Be my guest!

      But I won’t have the change done in less than a week due to the current work load. Sorry.

      Cheers,

      Okay. Keep me updated. I just want to be sure it does what I need before moving ahead.

      Let me know!

      Hi Vinny — Just purchased the RBE addon- Very cool!

      Quick question: As you work on that update to the opt out add-on, would it be possible for the admin to define forums that are default opt out?

      To summarize, I am putting every member by default into the “support” forum so they can ask questions. But for this forum alone I don’t want them to get an email for every single support ticket.

      I’d prefer them just be able to subscribe to topics they start.

      Thanks again,
      Mark
