Digest in NewBB 2.0

What is digest?

Digests are a special type of topics chosen/marked by moderators. These topics are usually highly valuable and can be viewed through 'view digest post' in the forum, as well as being sent to subscribers though PM or emails.

How is the digest handled in NewBB 2.0 ?

A. sending digest: if $xoopsModuleConfig['email_digest'] is set to 1 (daily) or 2 (weekly), the digest will be sent out by calling newbb/digest.php
Note: it is suggested to use cronjob for automatically sending out digest for the current version of newbb
B. prompt: the webmasters(moderators) are notified from the newbb/admin/index.php by being indicated the due time to send out the digest according to the set preference
C. managing sent digests: sent digests can be viewed or deleted from newbb/admin/admin_digest.php
