Send customisable emails to your users for different WordPress notifications.
New add-ons are now available! View Add-ons
Better Notifications for WordPress allows you to create custom email notifications and send them to user roles (including custom roles) or individual users for all kinds of things happening on your WordPress website. Emails are sent out via your WordPress website (using
wp_mail) but can be sent via SMTP using an appropriate 3rd party plugin should you wish.
You want a user with the editor role (or all users using the Editor role) 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.
If you want to override the notifications that you've set-up on an individual post / page / custom post basis, you may be interested in the Per-post Override add-on.
A handy list of shortcodes you can use is available here.
Notifications that are currently available to use are:
Posts / Custom Post Types
Custom Post Types
