This plugin will send you a notification via Email, Notifo (free push service) or SMS when a specified page or post is viewed.
The Email and Notifo options won't cost you anything.
If you use the BulkSMS option, it does cost money. Currently you must buy credits on BulkSMS.COM to send messages. Your cell phone carrier may also charge you to receive messages - please check with them and make sure you have an appropriate text messaging plan.
This plugin uses your server to send email. You need to have the SMTP settings and smtp_port set in your PHP.INI. If you can't or don't want to change these settings, you can use a WordPress plugin like Configure SMTP, which also allows the email to be sent through Gmail.
The notification email is sent when the footer loads. Currently, the page stops loading until the email is sent (which can take 10 seconds or more with Gmail). I'm trying to figure out a way around this, but for now this is a known issue.
BulkSMS.COM supports the majority of carriers in Canada and the U.S. Since I'm in Canada this was the most important one for me to implement. I am not affiliated with BulkSMS, nor do I receive any compensation from them.
Notifo is a free service that allows push messages to be sent to any device with the Notifo application installed, including your iPhone or a desktop computer. More info can be found at notifo.com
In the future I will be adding many paid and free SMS sending methods, including email and twitter, so stay tuned.
Make sure you have entered your phone number properly. You need to enter your country code and your full phone number. In North America, this should be 11 digits long - 1, plus your 3 digit area code plus your 7 digit number.
