We're in the middle of some fast-moving changes to the Forem Admin experience, so we've paused documentation updates for the time being. You may find that the docs are now outdated in parts. If you have any questions, please visit to request additional support. We thank you for your patience and hope you're liking the changes!

Contact email address#

The contact email address is used for any contact links. It will appear on auto-populated support pages, Code of Conduct, Terms of Use, Privacy Policy, and any other locations around the site where users may need to reach out for additional help.

Periodic email digest#

You can set the number of days between email digests a user receives.

Email digests are automated emails sent to subscribed users that highlight suggested posts tailored to their interests, based on the tags they follow, users they follow, and a few other criteria.

Email digests are separate and distinct from email newsletters, which are sent and managed from a connected Mailchimp account. You will need to have Email Server Settings configured for your Forem in order to send email digests. Your Forem will need at least 3 new posts per day before Email digests are triggered to send automatically.

Users can opt in or out of these digests at any time from their Notification Settings at /settings/notifications. They can adjust the content of their digests by following/unfollowing/blocking users and organizations, or adjusting their tag weightings to reflect their interests.
