Can a member turn off email notifications for messages?

If so, is there a way to save this setting for each member in a Safecracker form?

I think, you are using Safecracker Registration for the member registration process. For turning off the email notification for messages the member's notify_of_pm need to be set as 'n'. Can you just try by having an input field within form tag:

<input type="text" name="notify_of_pm" value="n" />

and then check within exp_members for notify_of_pm column value for that member if set as 'n'.

If it didn't work, you will need to create an extension for it which will update it.

  • Yep, that is the field name alright. I have to use an extension hook, however. Aug 19, 2013 at 6:14
