And what about email "subscription"?
Squishdot Posted by Lalo Martins on Wednesday January 12, 03:50AM, 2000
from the oh-yes-please-spam-me-OOOOOOOOOOH dept.
I found myself wondering... what about "subscribing" to a Squishdot site, or even a discussion, so that any and all article posted gets spammed to your mailbox? Feasible? Is there any particular piece of code that is executed everytime a posting gets approved? (For "gets posted" there is, of course, the posting verification script)

    Ummm, I'm not 100% sure as I haven't tried it myself, but maybe you can modify the code to create a "hook" DTML method that is called whenever something is approved (in the add/edit methods) and then create the DTML method that will send out an email message (preferably to an mailing list exploder).

    I would suggest using a "more robust" package (e.g. MailMan) for handling subscriptions to a mailing list. This would keep these things functionally separated and easier to maintain.

    Again, the same thing can be done (i.e. add another "hook") if you want a email message sent to a moderator whenever someone adds a message.

    HTH.

    I'd to know if the flipside is possible: having mail sent to an address appear as a posting. I would like to use SquishDot as an archive that people can also post to directly (for example when they are traveling).

      I have been playing with this idea.

      AFAIK, what you can do (not hard) is write a script that parses the mail message and uploads it via http. I haven't tried yet because for this to work on my server it would have to decently support virtual hosting.
