Forum Post E Mail

I’m trying to create a code that upon a member posting to a forum that someone else has already started will send a notification e mail to everyone involved with the forum except for the person that just made the post.

The script needs to limit the e mails to once per user incase they have previously posted to that forum many times so they won’t receive multiple e mails at once.

Below is a sample script that gets me to the point where I now need to use something like a foreach or while and input the e mail information. It works great but once I put either a while or foreach on it the script either has errors or will run forever. Any help would be great!

$get_users = “SELECT created_by FROM forumPosts WHERE topic_id=’$topic_id’ AND created_by!=’$name’”;

$run_get_users = mysql_query(”$get_users”);

$get_all_users = mysql_fetch_assoc($run_get_users);

$filtered = array_unique($get_all_users);

Well, as u’ve told the piece of code which u has posted at here is working fine but giving error when u tried to use While or foreach loop with it.

I had to remove a ")" you had after
$get_all_email = mysql_fetch_assoc($run_get_email)

after doing that I’m now given the following error:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_VARIABLE in /home/tatguy/public_html/scripts/add_forums_post.php on line 47
line 47 is this line:
$to = $get_all_email[?email?];

uuf, i forget to remove that bracket. Did u add the semicolon after the function [mysql_fetch_assoc($run_get_email);] which i also forget to give…

About this…
$to = $get_all_email[?email?];
Use double quote in place of single quote…

$to $get_all_email["email"];
