When a moderator posts a new topic to a certain category, I’d like my users to be notified over email.
Is there a way to do that?
Right now, users can select various options, such as getting notified of all new topics, replies to their posts, etc. I’d like to be able to allow them to get notifications for new topics, but only the really important new topics that I create as the moderator (admin would be ok too)–that way they can get notified of the extra important posts, but not get their inboxes flooded.
The closest way I can think of is to put the users into a group, and then send a direct message to that group. The problem with this approach is that it is important to me for the post to be part of the category, and function just like other posts in the category. A direct message does not seem to do that.
