A plugin for interfacing your WordPress with Prowl, an application for receiving custom push notifications on your iPhone.


  • Fixed spam comment issues with Akismet, again.


  • Added new notification type: New Post Pending Review. (thanks djr!)
  • Added delay in new posts/pages, so notifications aren't spammed for multiple edits in a short period (not a final implementation).
  • Terribly serious rewrite of Post/Page notification code.
  • Makes sure plugin activation fires on manual upgrade.
  • Made steps towards being ready for internationalization. Not there yet... things left to learn.


  • Fix comments bypassing failed reCAPTCHA.


  • Cleared up configuration page. I'd like to make it even better, but it's pretty good for now.
  • More options for comment filtering.
  • Strip tags from messages, fixes a compatibility issue with Markdown (not serious).
  • Better compatibility with CAPTCHAs, Akismet
  • Changed actions to a lower priority. Hopefully catch issues with unwanted comments coming through.
  • Fixed upgrade re-activations so they were working right.
  • Verifies API keys on options page. Warns if they're bad.
  • Added a donation shill. Feel dirty. Unless it works. :)
  • Fixed some incompleteness in the ProwlPHP class port. Still some work to do.
  • Thought about localization. Got bored. Maybe version 0.8.0. Maybe.


  • PHP4 compatibility.
  • Basic support for multiple API keys. Better support to come. (Thanks to Gilles Doge for the patch)
  • Option to ignore comments that have been marked as spam. (Thanks to jdh for the idea)
  • Bug Fixes
  • Configuration still ugly. Dare I say uglier?


  • World peace (REDACTED)


  • Fixed notifications not being sent when pages were posted.


  • Checks for required cURL abilities and warns if they aren't present.
  • Sanity checks on a few things to make sure the best always happens.
  • Killed some defines and minimized some database calls.
  • Removed ability to put date/time into formatting strings. Redundant as Prowl knows the time.
  • Added a few more options for formatting strings.
  • Actually removes all database entries on deactivation.
  • Fixed more readme typos. I need a proofreader.
  • Configuration is still ugly. This is now a feature (until I get around to it).


  • Fixed some issues in the readme.
  • Fixed an issue that caused an error to be thrown on plugin activation. sorry.


  • Fixed up some bits
  • Added explanations of some configuration options
  • Changed how versions are handled


  • Initial Release. Configuration still very ugly.
