Auto Follow Content

Recommended Posts

I upgraded from using the version that was created as a plugin to the latest application version. Will the settings and auto follow preferences carry over and will members continue to be auto subscribed or have I lost everything? Also would be helpful to know which database tables contain the settings and preferences for this application.

On another note does this app work when adding members via the admin? We have a closed forum and we add users manually so self registration is disabled.

Thanks

No, it required a manual action from you as stated in the upgrade notice: https://invisioncommunity.com/forums/topic/424007-auto-follow-content/?do=findComment&comment=2720033

Settings are stored in the settings table: core_sys_conf_settings. Conf_key is “afc_”, IIRC.

Yes. 

Great thanks. I understand updating the settings manually but what about existing members that were auto following content will that be lost?

Hey @Adriano Faria...thanks for another great app!  Looks promising, except that no Blogs or Clubs show up in my drop-down menu.  I'm also wondering why Blogs and Clubs are both included under the Blogs tab...?

I also notice that the Follow options for the LMS are currently limited to Modules...shouldn't there be first and foremost the option to follow courses?

Thanks!

Clubs hasn’t categories. Apps does. So Clubs appears under each app tab. 

Blogs doesn’t has categories, so...

Regarding LMS, have no idea. Need to check. But LMS is a bit different than the rest. Modules are nodes of the main node (course).

Ok...so can you give me some direction as to how I would configure things so that new members automatically follow, say, a Site News & Information Blog since there are no Blog categories (yet??!)?

This is what I see under the Blogs tab:

("Spaces" is my rendering of Clubs)

I have several Blogs and entries, so I assume they should be showing up somehow?  The Entries field underneath this window is blank as well.

I changed Blogs to display Blogs (and not categories because Blogs doesn't has categories) and entries:

Clubs not working there, not sure why. I'll come back to this at some point.

Compatible with IPS 4.4.

Just wanted to verify that you're referring to Version 1.2.3, and I didn't miss an update somewhere.

Thanks!

Go to the file and take a look in the COMPATIBILITY field.

OK so this menu is accurate?  I just ask because some of IPS's menus like this are very buggy (for example when you're trying to filter Marketplace searches).
