I'm wondering about the best way to set up "subscribe to get email alerts"
I have a content type which is "tagged" with various terms from various taxonomies and I want to set up a simple "subscribe to get email alerts" page, where users can subscribe to whichever 'terms' they like, so that emails are sent to them when a new item of the content type is created with the associated tags.
I have installed the notifications and messaging modules which have enabled me to create a "subscriptions block", which is presented on the content pages with links like "Subscribe to: Content tagged with: XXXXX", which allows users to subscribe to a specific tag.
But what I really want is a page, which lists ALL available tags (terms) a user could subscribe to, with check boxes, so the user can skim the list and subscribe to any / all the tags they are interested in, in one go
I am struggling to work out how I might do that using the notifications and messaging modules… perhaps I would be better off allowing users to 'tag' themselves with the same terms used on Content Type… and then set up a rule which fires an email to the user if new content (of the specific content type) is created with the same terms as they have tagged themselves with?
But I'm not entirely sure how I would go about that… or if there is a better / simpler plan?
I don't think this is a very complicated task - and am surprised I can't find links to similar requests / solutions online…
Any advice appreciated!
