Event Notifier


Event Notifier is a diagnostic tool, aimed at providing notifications when WordPress hooks / event occur. It was created out of the need to be notified when “fail” hooks are triggered, thereby informing us of the event.

Currently it supports Email and Slack notifications. Hopefully I’ll add more as I get time.

Since certain hooks fire frequently, the amount of notifications can be significant. So, be sure to only setup events on the exact hook that is needed.

If you are a developer, implement your own hooks in your plugins so that you can fire off events for specific notifications.


  • Main Admin Screen

  • General Settings of an Event Notifier

  • Slack Integration built in.

  • Live (ish) Dashboard option to log most recent events.


  1. Activate the plugin
  2. Go to Tools > Event Notifier
  3. Click “Add Event”
  4. Fill in the details for the event
  5. Click “Add”
  6. That’s it.
