#5047 new defect

Add check to forum subscriptions if the account is "Blocked" or "Spectator"

Reported by: jdembowski Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: Support Forums Keywords:


When a user for cause has their forum account set to "Blocked" or "Spectator" then they lose the ability to edit their existing subscriptions.

Can a check be added to the subscriptions so that those two account types do not get notifications from the forums?

A user that was blocked (for cause, that's important) and is still getting emails from the forums. Because their account is "Blocked" they cannot edit or clear their subscriptions.

Blocked users, yes those shouldn't receive anything (and I see there's a bbPress ticket for it :) )

Spectators should still be able to subscribe and modify their subscriptions though, that's in the nature of the name even, they're watchers and should be able to do the watchful actions. A quick test shows me taht bbPress does allow for this, so if that's not working on WordPress.og, we should fix that.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
