Yes, you can easily do that. All you need is using the subscribeTopic method in this file: ow_plugins/forum/controllers/topic.php

sorry, cant find the code, it's too complicated for me :D

I mean if they reply to topic they also subcribe that topic as default, they dont have to tick the subcribe box.

if ( OW::getUser()->isAuthorized('forum', 'subscribe') && !$subscribeService->isUserSubscribed($userId, $topicId) )

Ben, sorry, I've given you the directions, but this is all I can do. I cannot give you the step-by-step instructions on how to make this modification.

Hi Alia,

thanks for all your helpful information. I have two follow-up questions:

1) assuming that

return self::SCHEDULE_AUTO;

refers to automatic response, which would the code be for immediate response?

2) And: do I just add the above code to the service.php file? I did not find equivalent code to replace.

I second Daniel Kumitz question. Finding and changing the code is pretty simple, but what is the correct code for immediate response?

You can see the following strings at the beginning of the file:

const SCHEDULE_IMMEDIATELY = 'immediately';
const SCHEDULE_AUTO = 'auto';
const SCHEDULE_NEVER = 'never';

You should choose the constant you need to set as default and then change the SCHEDULE_AUTO constant to the chosen one in the function Aliia mentioned.

This is the function default

public function getDefaultSchedule()
        return self::SCHEDULE_AUTO;

I changed to 

public function getDefaultSchedule()
        return self::SCHEDULE_IMMEDIATELY;
The site jammed, I had to change it back to _AUTO.
Is there something I am missing?

Everything should work. Please enable the DEBUG_MOD to see the error that occurs when you change the value to SCHEDULE_IMMEDIATELY;

Working fine for my website... But i wish "AUTO " could work for me.

Sorry, but it's not quite clear. Could you provide us with more details.

Quote from ben   if they reply to topic they also subcribe that topic as default, they dont have to tick the subcribe box.

Here's what I did.

Open oxwall\ow_plugins\forum\init.php

After the following lines:

        $event = new OW_Event('notifications.add', $params, $data);



Add this code:

    $subscribeService = FORUM_BOL_SubscriptionService::getInstance();

    $userId = OW::getUser()->getId();

    $topicId = $post->topicId;

    if ( OW::getUser()->isAuthorized('forum', 'subscribe') && !$subscribeService->isUserSubscribed($userId, $topicId) )


        $subscription = new FORUM_BOL_Subscription;

        $subscription->userId = $userId;

        $subscription->topicId = $topicId;



Hope this helps!  :)

I set the schedule to "Immediately" as shown above. Automatically won't work on my site. So I want to delete the radio button "Automatically" on the email-notifications settings page. User shall only choose between Immediately and Never (on and off).

But in the view file "(...)oxwall/ow_plugins/notifications/views/controllers/notifications_settings.html" the code reads like this:

<tr class="ow_alt1">
            <td class="ow_value">{input name="schedule"}</td>

How can I delete the selection for automatically? Anyone an idea? Thanks!
