The topic is located at https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=130747

in reply notification mails at the start of the mail instead of the end? That is before the

The message reads as follows:

Re: [DONE] Please show topic url at the start of notification mail

You don't have to use the 'Include a plain text version of new posts in subscription notification emails.' option. If it's unchecked, you will get just

anta40 has replied to the topic 'Weird vim behaviour?' to which you are subscribed. There may be more new replies, but this is the only notification you will receive until you visit the board again.

You can unsubscribe by going to https://bbs.archlinux.org/misc.php?action=unsubscribe&tid=130706

This is not a fix, but you can use it as a workaround.


Does mobile Gmail have a command to scroll to the end of the message?

Re: [DONE] Please show topic url at the start of notification mail

@karol: I know about that option. Generally the posts are small so thats not an issue. Mobile gmail splits up the mail into many pages and soemtimes 1 single long mail in desktop gmail ends up being about 5-6 pages in mobile gmail and only by going to 5th or 6th page i can see the topic url. Many other forums (generally all) provide topic and unsubscribe urls at the start of the mail instead of the end.

No. I haven't seem any "scroll to end of message" option in mobile gmail (only go to Next message/conversation option).

I don't know if this is something our mods/admins can do or is it hardcoded by fluxbb devs. If it's the latter, you have to ask for this feature upstream.

I think you forgot a 'glorious and awesome' phrase somewhere there.

To the OP - out of curiosity, why do you use mobile gmail rather than a platform-specific gmail app. I know android's one is terrific, at the least.

Surely there must be some option/setting somewhere. vBulletin (Fedora and Ubuntu forums) seem to provide links at the start of the mail.

As mentioned, the Arch forums uses fluxbb not vBulletin. I'm unsure whether fluxbb allows for what you're asking, perhaps you would be able to find that out.

My sympathies. My wife uses a nokia for some browsing, and moving up/down IS a pain.

Re: [DONE] Please show topic url at the start of notification mail

The admins can easily change the email template. It's in lang/English/mail_templates/. That's supposed to be modifiable (while not very user-friendly, I suppose).

On the other hand, as you have a good point:
You can always create a ticket at fluxbb.org. smile

Done https://fluxbb.org/development/core/tickets/561/ . Thanks for your help. This change should be made for both the "Reply to <topic>" and "New topic at <sub_forum>" type notification mails.

Well, looks like we didn't quite make it. There is a rather bad bug stopping us from releasing the new version. Any day now...
