Content Update Notification

Description

Content Update Notification allows your site to notify nearly anyone by email anytime a post or page is added or updated.

You can customize your email alerts with the following fields:

  • Name of your website
  • Name of the content area edited
  • Time the content was edited
  • A link to the page that was edited
  • The username of the user who edited the content

This plugin is ideal for administrators who have multiple content authors and need to be alerted to content changes for review or regulatory compliance.
