Email Notifications for New topics

Postby Digerati Mon May 15, 2017 4:46 am

Any chance the email notifications for "new" topics can be changed to include a link to the new topic?

Right now, the options provided by the email are a link to the forum the new topic is in, or a link to stop watching the forum.

If I want to view the new topic (and why subscribe to them if I didn't?), I have to select the first option. But then I'm met with a bunch of stickies at the top of the forum. I have to scroll down and find the new topic based on the timestamp, the OP's username (if I remember it) , or the title (if I remember that). That is a PITA. :rant

Why not a link taking us directly to the new topic?

Yeah I'm not sure why PHPBB does this and doesn't allow for an easy alteration. Will do some digging about what files need to be altered and if it's a straight forward thing

Hmmm, I was hoping it was something simple, like an option check box.

Thanks.
