Email Notifications: What Role does User Have to Be? (3 posts)

    Hi there,
    I was wondering if there was some sort of limitation imposed on notifications. Apparently, you cannot notify anyone of a change to the editorial flow of a post, unless they are an author or above (in terms of roles in WordPress). If a user is only a subscriber, their username and email doesn't even show up as an option in the notifications section of a post, nor can they be added to any Notification groups? Why is that? At times, there are subscribers who are not authors that we want to notify about a post status. Now it's not possible with the plugin. How can we do this? Would we have to modify the core code for this? If so, where would this show up. thanks.

    Actually, it seems like the code only works for admin, editor, or author. But contributors and subscribers are excluded from getting any notifications? I would think at least contributors should get it also.

    I assume there is code in notifications.php to change to allow this. I am just wondering where this would be. Thans.

    You shouldn't modify the core of the plugin. If you do, the sky will fall in your head :)

    Subscribers are excluded from the list of users that can be subscribed to a post because they don't have privileges to create or edit posts. For example, in the email notifications there are links to various things within the post edit screen.

    You might check out this code snippet for an example of how you could auto-subscribe subscribers to posts.
