I upgraded from 1.9 to 2.0 on March, and since then all new users (more than 2.000) are not subscribed to the news forum on the fron page. This is a real problem because we need to contact every user in the Moodle site and so far this has been impossible since the upgrade.
Even though there is an interface for editing subscribers on every forum, we have 17.000 users so that interface takes ages to end up on a broken page.
Is there any way I can add the users as subscribers from an SQL query or something? I checked the mdl_forum_subscriptions table filtering forum number 1 and I just got 11 students... Not even the many thousands I do have.
Can anyone give a hand on this?
