Can I Autocheck The 'subscribe' Box?
Resolved

Hi there,

I'm using Joomla 3, EasyBlog 3.9 and have recently integrated Komento 1.6 for better commenting functionality.

I have email notifications set up for EasyBlog so authors and blog subscribers receive email notifications of replies/comments to posts.

I would like for those that comment on a particular blog to automatically be subscribed to that particular blog (not all blogs, just the particular one they're commenting on) so they too receive notifications of replies.

I understand that to do this, the user has to check the 'subscribe' checkbox when commenting (this works fine).

However I fear users will forget to do this and therefore would like this box to be automatically checked. Is there a way to do this?

I see there's an auto-subscribe setting in Komento > Integrations > EasyBlog > Workflow but this seems to autosubscribe everyone to every blog. This isn't what I want!

There is a setting in EasyBlog > Settings > Comments called 'Subscriptions checked by default' (which I have set to yes) but this doesn't work - I assume because I'm using Komento so require a Komento-specific option.

Is there an option in Komento which has the same functionality as the 'Subscriptions checked by default' setting in EasyBlog?

Please see attached for the Komento 'subscribe' checkbox I'd like to be auto-checked when a user posts a comment on a blog post.

Many thanks, Sophie

Hi Sophie,

The comment settings from EasyBlog are dedicated(Build-In) to EasyBlog comment, thus;
Those comment settings set in EasyBlog does not apply to Komento. I sincerely apologize that Komento does not have such settings that you need in EasyBlog.

Can I provide you a guide towards your need?
Step 1:
Go into your :
JoomlaFolder\components\com_komento\kuro\comment\form\subscriptionfield.php
Step 2:
Add in
checked="checked"
in Line 32 (approximately)
Result Guide:
<input type="checkbox" name="subscribe-checkbox" id="subscribe-checkbox" value="y" class="subscribeCheckbox input checkbox" checked="checked"/>

This will make the checkbox to be checked by default.

Do let us know if this guide helps you out?

Sincerely, Ethan
