Thanks - would be glad to see a howto for automatically setting the category notification settings for everyone in a specific group. Or, better, the ability to set up regular queries to run for group members to mass update them, similar to badges.
I did some poking around using the new data explorer plugin (thank you!! ) and am getting some insight into who’s watching certain categories.
I think this is the query to see who’s watching a category:
SELECT * FROM category_users WHERE category_id = '16'
I first got the category using this query:
SELECT * FROM categories
The results show “notification level”. 3 appears to be watching, 2 appears to be tracking, and 0 appears to be muting. I don’t know what 1 would mean.
I have one user with two entries in this list which I find a bit puzzling. Looking through the UI he is watching the category so the 3 is correct. Again, not sure what 1 means.
BTW: I can then look in the users table to see what the user ID is, but it would be handy if that link to “User #64” actually worked - right now it goes to
/users/by-id/64 which results in a page not found error. Is that a bug?
