I've had some users request a weekly email digest of forum activity, instead of getting instant notifications via the RSS feed. Does anyone see a way this could be accomplished automatically? I suspect that a user is only going to want a digest of the Forums they subscribe to, and not the others.

I've also had this request. Some active topics can spam my user's inbox and they end up unsubscribing from topics altogether. A digest would be a great compromise.

This feature has been mentioned in other topics, we've added in our to-do list. But this is out of the top features. Probably we'll add it in 1.5.x versions.

I have not tried this, but it might be worth looking into MailChimp's automatic RSS-to-Email feature. You might be able to pull in the feeds from your forums and populate newsletters and send them automatically.

Hi,

This seems to be a great solution, thanks. My problem with that is that my forum is private (forum pages only accessible to members trough a membership plugin).

But the RSS feed seems to be public.... is there a way to make the feed private ?

This would be very valuable to our users. @robert any idea when it's planned to release?
