Support » Plugin: Gwolle Guestbook » Notification Mail to Subscriber (Admin)

    Hello, for testing reasons I installed this plug-in, ti seems it is working fine now, so I want to activate it finally (checking the Add-On as well). However, I am putting together a website for my daughter and used my own account, when I downloaded the plugin. Now, when the site goes live, I want a notification to my daughter’s email address, when a user enters a post in the guestbook, but I am not able to change the email-address from mine to my daughter’s. I have already deinstalled / deleted the plugin and reinstalled it.
    Can anybody help me, please?

    Hi,
    Notifications are sent to the email address that is in the user profile. The user can subscribe to notifications.
    You can go to Guestbook > Settings > Notifications-tab.
    There you should be able to add the user account of your daugther to the subscriber list.
    If she isn’t an option in the dropdown, it might be she doesn’t have the right role to be able to moderate entries.

    Hello,

    I have the same question. Where to add that new user?

    This is admin Notification tab: https://prnt.sc/12aqz5e

    No place to add e-mails, just a dropdown.

    Thank you in advance!

    Sincerely,

    Hi Jelena,
    The dropdown lists already existing users. You can go to Users > New User. If that user has the right role it can be added to the subscribers list.

    This question often comes up, I will see if I can improve the text and explanation.

    Hello,

    I understand now. I was doing things only in your plugin area.

    So, I can explain:
    You have to click “User -> New User” in your WordPress Dashboard area. Enter the e-mail address of that new user and change the role of that new user in “Administrator”.

    When you go back to Guestbook -> Settings -> Notification tab -> Subscribe User dropdown menu will suggest that New User.

    Thank you!

    Sincerely,

    Jelena

    Yes, basically.

    You can see here:
    https://plugins.trac.wordpress.org/browser/gwolle-gb/trunk/functions/gb-user.php#L66

    That default roles for this are ‘Administrator’, ‘Editor’, ‘Author’.
