Hi since having vBet installed when a new thread gets created a notification is sent to people set in the forum to recieve it (AdminCP>Forums & Moderators>Forum Manager>Whichever forum>Who should recieve an email on new thread) the problem is that it is now sending the notification sometimes twice, sometimes 3 times so it's getting quite annoying for the recipients.

Can you help?


07-10-10, 13:53
Can I test it on your forum? I will make a new test-thread to check it.

Sure, let me put your email address in the "Who gets an email" section of the forum marked "General"

I have now entered contact@vbenterprisetranslator.com as the email to send to for any post or thread entered in General Discussion forum :0

07-10-10, 14:35
I was on your site and I made a new thread and post - everything is ok.
try it:test thread (http://www.thecodecage.com/forumz/fun-forum/208004-test-thread.html#post741126)
how I can reproduce this issue? can you explain it?

Simon Lloyd

07-10-10, 15:16

Just make a new thread/topic here General Discussion (http://www.thecodecage.com/forumz/general-discussion/)

07-10-10, 15:25
ok I made a new thread and few posts without issue. If I made a one post - I have a only one message on my e-mail, so what is wrong?

Simon Lloyd
07-10-10, 15:27
i made a test message too in that forum did you get another from my thread?

BTW your post stayed written in polish?

Kamil 1 minute ago i created 2 more threads so at most you should only ahve 2 emails from two different threads marked for you. :)

07-10-10, 18:40
and I have only two e-mails. :) everything is good, I can't reproduce yours issue, so I think that everything is ok.

A user just posted and both i and my moderators got the notification twice!, this has only occurred since installing vBet.

Simon Lloyd
07-10-10, 20:45
I will add your email to our forum that gives the notification, if you post yourself vbulletin will not give you notification of your own post, i will post a message and see if you get only one email :)

Simon Lloyd
07-10-10, 20:51
Just posted and got 6 notifications....you would have too!

Simon Lloyd
07-10-10, 20:54
it might be something to do with the code tags?

07-10-10, 21:02
ok i noticed that. Can you explain how to add e-mail to forum? I will try to reproduce it on my test forum.

Simon Lloyd
07-10-10, 21:11
I did in first post http://www.vbenterprisetranslator.com/forum/5289-post1.html

07-10-10, 21:12
ok, Thanks for that. Now I will try to reproduce this issue on my test forum and fix it!

Simon Lloyd
07-10-10, 21:14
Thanks, but it may be something to do with my code tags or my html button for highlighting the code.

Feel free to look through the templates/files you have access to both

Just had a new post in that forum but only one notification but they did not use tags Convert sorted and filtered worksheet to HTML (http://www.thecodecage.com/forumz/members-excel-vba-programming/208015-convert-sorted-filtered-worksheet-html.html#post741164)

Simon Lloyd
07-10-10, 21:35
It seems that its random as i have just posted 2 different posts using 2 different tags and only one notification each???

Simon Lloyd

Have to go to bed now up at 5am :(

08-10-10, 10:05
I tested it on my test forum and I can't reproduce it.
Probably this is a conflict vBET with other mod.
You can simply check it. What you should do?
1. vBET must be enabled.
2. disable all mods (one by one) and try to find this issue again. If one mod is disable and you can't reproduce the issue - we have a conflict. (because when this mod is enabled - the issue exist)

My VBA tags call out to a php file for replacement of words and phrases, i can only imagine its that!

08-10-10, 10:55
Are you sure that when vBET is disabled you can't reproduce this mod?

From which mod VBA tags are?

Simon Lloyd

Are you sure that when vBET is disabled you can't reproduce this mod?

From which mod VBA tags are?Very sure :), it has never happened before making the modifications for vbet in the templates and php files or installing vbet - prior to obtaining vbet everything was good.

Why don't we leave the issue open for now and i will monitor how many posts cause it and which bbcode if any has been used then report back say tuesday?

Simon Lloyd
08-10-10, 12:06
Deleting all tet messages on my forum for now :) we will resume on tuesday.

08-10-10, 12:08
ok, so I am waiting for the answer to Tuesday :)

Hi Kamil, thanks for waiting, for the last few posts we have had (not had many) the notification has only posted out once (which you will have recieved notification of too) so go ahead and marked this solved, if we get a good few more posts and it happens again i will document them and save the list for your examination :)

12-10-10, 12:00
Thanks for your reply. solved.

Simon Lloyd
12-10-10, 22:15
Unfortunately not solved :(, just had a post right now here Send email based on date - The Code Cage Forums (http://www.thecodecage.com/forumz/members-excel-vba-programming/208038-send-email-based-date.html) sent 4 notifications

15-11-10, 10:38
Did you notice this issue again ?

17-11-10, 15:38
I'm like to point out that users on my forum have also complained about getting multiple (up to 6) e-mail notifications for the same subscribed thread. This is definitely a bug somewhere- I'll take a look at what code could be causing it.

The weird thing is that it's happening more or less randomly.

17-11-10, 17:31
ok I will try to reproduce it on my test forum

18-11-10, 12:35
Hello :)
There's another test, you may try - just remove all recipents of your confirmations in AdminCP and leave just ONE - check, do you still randomly receive several messages and write here about it :)

25-11-10, 17:29
Thread temp. solved due to no answer and impossibility to reproduce now

Simon Lloyd
25-11-10, 19:13
mateuszr, it does still happen, we just live with it for now, and it is random, there's no pattern.

26-11-10, 08:51
and did you try that option with only one recipient ?

02-12-10, 11:08
we just live with it for nowit seems you want still live with it - I asked you about that last modification a long time ago and still no reply...
