Hey everyone (@AP92, @Joel, @deviousphil, @stevela, @reecegoodall, @Anjana, @Lorraine, @CptKirky, @Giles, @emmasmith, @acw180, @OrangeLad, @GipsyDanger).
Forums just gained yet another super power. Reply by email!
Now you can respond to all threads using email. When you get a notification just hit reply and send an email. Discourse will handle the details.
Additionally the email address’s email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org will all create new threads in their respective categories.
If we want to post a new topic through e-mail do we just send it to ‘category’@discourse.filmsoc.warwick.ac.uk? What about subcategories e.g. show reports?
No. Each category needs to be told what email address it needs to look at.
If open the Edit panel on a category, and click settings there is a box in there for a email address. Just enter something like show-reports, or showreport. There is no need for an @ or the domain.
I have setup addresses for: Exec (exec), IT (it), Shadow the Exec (shadow), Projectionists (proj) and DMs’ (dm).
P.S. The show report email is email@example.com
