Guidance on project - email notifications on new posts (1 post)

    How you all doing?

    I have an advanced project that I want to try to execute with WordPress. I was wondering if anyone had any experience or ideas on what I want to do.

    I need a gated system where subscribers can only see content posted by other subscribers. It will be similar to a private classified ads service. The twist is that users get email notifications whenever a new post goes up that's to their specified, subscribed criteria. I also want the option of being able to subscribe to a "daily digest" of new posts.

    Now I'm thinking the "ads" can be a custom post type, and this will be the only thing I expose to the user when they log in (along with subscription options).

    It will be restricted to about 1000 or less users.

    Has anyone attempted anything like this before or have any idea where to start? I'm open to use of plugins.

    I wanted to use Drupal to do this as I know they have a plugin that can hand the email notification. I don't really know Drupal at all though and WordPress I know like the back of my hand.

    Appreciate any help.

    Cheers,

    G
