Continuing the discussion from Get notified of new topics, but not posts:
We’re having issues with only some new topics generating emails to people watching a particular category.
Thanks @eviltrout for having a look at this initially. After some additional debugging it seems the issue is not related to to “Watching first post” users only, but also users that are “Watching” the category. However, it seems to be working for mailing list mode users, as well as for people watching that particular thread.
I think the issue is related to posts ending up in the moderation queue. We currently moderate the first 5 posts a new users submits (approve post count = 5), and previously we also had “approve unless trust level = 2”, but turned that off now for debugging:
I would expect that once a post in the moderation queue is approved, that it would trigger the same email notifications as if it was posted without being subject to moderation. But that does not seem to be the case.
- If a post is not subject to moderation: Triggers all expected email notifications (mailing list, watching category, watching first post, watching topic)
- If a post is subject to moderation: After being approved, only trigger some email notifications: (mailing list, watching topic)
I assume this is a bug?
