I have installed an add-on that sends an email once a week listing the top 7 threads on this forum. If you do not wish to receive this email, please go to here on your own profile:

Alternatively, just click Unsubscribe when you get your first edition!

Any questions?

As you asked for questions...
Top 7 this week or all time? Why 7?

I did, and thank you for participating. Top 7 by I think it is view count for the previous 7 days. Why 7? I had to choose an amount. Not too many, not too much.

Question: How do you decide "top" ? Is it number of replies? Number of "likes"? Something else?

They take the most number of views. It is all automated.

Just to add, the digest gets sent out on Saturday morning, I believe.

Just received the Weekly Digest. For some reason, the top 2 entries are duds. Let's see if they appear next week too. If so, I will look into it.

I'm subscribed which I think was the default but no email received as yet. Perhaps they will be staggered over several hours?

To be honest, I have no idea how it works. The addon notes just say that the emails get sent out on a Saturday.

Oh dear, looks like I've got more troubleshooting to do. Nothings simple!

It could be something to do with SPF and DKIM settings which are about authenticating the source of the emails. I changed the DNS settings recently and I wonder if this has had an impact. I receive the email myself, but that doesn't really mean anything. I will add it to the list.

I'm not sure without looking at it. It uses a third-party addon while the thread emails uses the forum software.
