Checkbox to confirm user have read post (5 posts)

    Hi,

    I run a corporate website and I want my users to be able to confirm that they have read some of the posts that we publish every now and then in our intranet's wordpress.

    I do not care if they have actually read the posts or not, that's up to them, but I want to add a checkbox to certain posts so that they can submit that they "declare they have read the post". It's a legal requirement for us.

    I've been looking for a plugin that handles this but I have been unable to find anything and I thought it was worth asking before starting to code everything from scratch. It should not be difficult though.

    My idea would be to have a list of users that have read/not read each post as well as a time limit before they are automatically notified via email that they still have unread posts left.

    Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

    Create a form with the very well used and popular plugin Contact Form 7. Create form and add shortcode to end of your page/post.

    The Checkbox(s) can be required fields, an email is sent, can get rather fancy with this plugin...

    Thank you, that's a good idea for the checkbox, although the big problem here is how to track which users have checked the box and which not... and then send an email to those who haven't after a few days.

    It has to be fully automatic as we have a little more than 2000 users and we cannot track them manually. The email has to be sent also automatically.

    Any ideas? Thanks!

    Hi Manuito, did you find a good way to do this as the whole setup that you describe is pretty much what I am trying to set up too.

    Hi,

    No... I could not find any plugin that would allow me to do exactly what I had in mind. Some people suggested adapting other plugins or some other solutions and I tried several other things... but then I realized it was not worth it.

    I think the only solution here would be to code something from the ground up (or paying someone to do it, I'm sure it does not take too long to code... it should be very simple).

    Did you find something interesting?
