I wanted to get a better understanding of the relationship between the global opt-out plugin and bbPress default subscription to forums and topics.
I have been doing some tests this morning of the following scenario:
I’m subscribed to a forum and a topic from another forum.
I choose to globally opt-out.
Result: I no longer receive any notifications for the global (which is expected) and for the bbPress default subscriptions.
I see that there is an explanation when editing your subscriptions:
“GLOBAL FORUM NOTIFICATIONS
You have opted out from receiving global notifications. You will only receive messages for those topics and replies that you have explicitly subscribed to.”
I do not receive those subscription emails.
I’ve tested this both with and without the “Override Subscriptions to Forums.” checked.
The subscription setting under Forums “Allow users to subscribe to forums and topics” is always checked for this test.
The way I understand it is, if you globally opt-out, you should still receive notifications of the forums and topics you’re explicitly subscribed to under “Subscriptions” of the edit profile screen?
I appreciate your explanation on this. And…great plugin as always!

Thanks for reaching out!
You have a point there. Before I added support to override core subscriptions, the opt-out plugin was a stopper for all bbpnns notifications. When I added core overrides, it didn’t occur to me to allow subscriptions to go through the opt-out plugin.
I’ll release an update to both bbpnns (I need a filter there) and the Opt-out recipients method to let messages through if the user is a core subscriber.
You should expect to get it between today and tomorrow.
