Does "default categories watching first post" respect category permissions?

(Adam Tarnowsky) #1

I’m trying to implement a scenario where certain members of my forum should be notified of every new topic that is added to a specific category. In this case, the category’s permissions are set to only let people that belong to a certain group see it’s topics and posts. If I add this category to the setting “Default categories watching first post” under Admin > Settings > User Preferences, will it email out first new posts only to those people belonging to the group that has permission? Am I understanding this right?

That is correct, if the user doesn’t have access to the category it will not be added to their “Watching First Post” (or other) notification state list.
