Plugin API

The Single Function

The single function for sending XMPP Messages is xmpp_enabled. It can be called directly from any WordPress plugin

xmpp_enabled($recipient, $message, $subject='', $type='normal');
  • $recipient is a valid (bare or full) JID of the recipient like ‘’
  • $message is a plain text message to be sent
  • $subject is a title line for message. It is usually omitted for chat-type messages
  • $type is a type of message. It can be ‘chat’, ‘normal’ or ‘headline’. See RFC 3921 for details

Example: xmpp_send('',"Read our new post:\n",'New post is published','headline');

Create submenu in the XMPP Enabled section

XMPP Enabled creates it’s own section and you’re free to use it for your plugins. The code is 'xmpp-enabled'

Example: add_submenu_page('xmpp-enabled', 'Jabber Comment Notifications', 'Comment Notifications', 'administrator', __FILE__, 'jcommnotify_settings');

See Adding Administration Menus in WordPress Codex for further details


  1. Upload xmpp-enabled folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Set up default Jabber account in XMPP Enabled Settings page


Why the distinct plugin?

To provide a single XMPP account settings page for all Jabber notification plugins

Can it send messages to multiple contacts?

It’s safe to use xmpp_send() multiple times. All calls will use the same connection
