keyword alert?

Postby FBC-Elvas, Portugal » June 24th, 2011, 1:52 pm

Would it be possible to 'subscribe' to selected keywords so that members can be alerted to topics of interest in sections of the forum they might not normally monitor? The search tool is good but a keyword-alert, if possible, would be a big help as the forum grows.

I'm particularly interested in the Peninsular War but would like to know when Albuera, Badajoz or any of the other battlefield/siege sites is mentioned elsewhere on the forum. Also, I'd like to read any comments about Massena, Soult etc in any other context.

Hi Sarah

I will have a look at the phpBB3 modification database and see if any tools for this exist.

Hi Sarah

I have had a good look through the modifications database for phpBB3 but I can't find anything that seems to offer the facility you describe. New modifications are published frequently so I will keep my eye open in case one becomes available.
