Better Notifications for WordPress (beta)

Send customisable HTML emails to user roles for different WordPress notifications.

Better Notifications for WordPress (beta) allows you to choose which WordPress email notifications are sent to which user roles (including custom roles) and allows you to customise the notifications using simple HTML and shortcodes. Emails are sent using wp_mail() but can be sent using SMTP using an appropriate 3rd party plugin (we recommend WP-Mail-SMTP).

For example: You want Editors to be alerted via email when a new post is published and you'd like to customise it to include your branding along with the author's display name and post time - with this plugin, that's easy.

Notifications that you can use are:

  • New category
  • New post published / post updated
  • New comment (and it's corresponding status)
  • New user registration
  • New trackback
  • New pingback
  • Lost password reset

If you'd like to see a notification in the list above, please drop us a line in the forums and we'll see what we can do to add it.

A long and handy list of shortcodes you can use is available here
