Hi All
This is just to let you know that you now have the possibility of receiving Digests by email of posts on Gardenlaw. You can opt to receive Digests in your User Control Panel. Below describes what Digests do and how you can customise what you see. You can find the User Control Panel in the drop down list next to your User Name in the top right hand corner of the Board. In the User Control Panel, look for and click on The Digests Tab at the top. Digests can be Daily, Weekly or Monthly to suit you,


Digests are emails sent to users periodically with summary of postings made on a phpBB board for discrete time periods. Digests makes some phpBB board users’ lives easier. They don’t have to explicitly visit the site to see what conversations are going on around there. They just read their digest and if there is some topic that seems of interest, they click on the topic link in their email program and start participating! They can unsubscribe at any time. By default, weekly digests are sent on Sundays. The users determines the hour they want to receive the digest. Whatever time they choose, they will always get the latest news so they can pick a time that suits their lifestyle.

Digests can be daily, weekly or monthly. Posts older than this will not be sent in a digest. In addition, if you want you can elect not to see posts since you last logged in, if you visited recently. You can even filter out your own posts.

If a user does not want summaries of every post, they can be selective. They can pick the forum or forums that interests them. By default they will get posts for all forums that they are allowed to access.

Digests can be sent as emails containing HTML or plain text. By default the user gets the entire post as text, but they can also select to see excerpts of each post or get a list of posts with links to each post.

Please note that each digest is unique, and may have different posts in it compared to another digest going out at the same hour.
