Email Post Changes

Description

Each time a change is made to a post or page, those changes are emailed to the users and email addresses you specify.

Optionally, you can set what types of changes to email (post changes, page changes, attachment changes, or changes
to any other ‘post type’ defined by any other plugin).

The changes are emailed as a unified diff. If the email client supports HTML emails, the diff will be colorized.

Installation

After uploading and activating the plugin, go to Settings -> Email Post Changes to set up the plugin.

You can change what email addresses to use and for what post types you want change notifications.

Reviews

nearly what I need. Too few settings

Email notfication on updating a specific post is what I need.
In the GUI I cannot configure the ID of a specific post where I need the alert so I had to adapt the code. This works for me, now.

Doesn’t work!

Maybe its because I am using Advanced Custom Fields, but come on, who builds a WP site without ACF these days, its a must that ACF is supported (if this is the issue). Either way, I dont get notified, so 1*

Too simple

This plugin has near no settings – you can only select e-mails to which an e-mail will be sent after any post/page change. That’s all.

Doesn't work…

I have it only enabled on a custom post type. Tried several times…nothing. Really wanted it to work. :/
