[Resolved] [Plugin: Edit Flow] Feature request – Cutomizing Notifications

  • I have seen the documentation relating to extending Edit Flow, but I think it would be quite practical if there were a few more options out of the box regarding notifications. For example,

    • Specifying a different address for general notifications to be sent to.
    • Specifying that notifications should be sent regarding only the actions of certain role holders

    Both of these should be doable with just a little bit of code. Can you outline your use case better?

    Thansk for your responsses this day.

    For example, as Admin and Editor, I don’t want to be notified of everything I do (I just did it!). I would like to know only if a Contributor (or whichever group/person I choose) has done something.

    As well, I would like to be able to set this globally and not on a post-by-post basis.

    Are you using Edit Flow v0.7.1?

    The current behavior of notifications should be to not email you if you’re making the action, but email you with updates to all posts you’re subscribed to. This was changed in the most recent version.

    You might also have the ‘Always notify admin’ option checked, and you could probably uncheck that.

    Is it possible to enable the old-style notification behaviour if desired?

    [I also have the ‘Always notify admin’ option checked and it doesn’t seem to do anything… or should I say I’m not getting any notifications!]

    Is it possible to enable the old-style notification behaviour if desired?

    Yep, the old behavior can be reenabled by adding this filter to your theme’s functions.php:

    add_filter( 'ef_notification_email_current_user', '__return_true' );

    [I also have the ‘Always notify admin’ option checked and it doesn’t seem to do anything… or should I say I’m not getting any notifications!]

    This works fine for me locally, so it might be problem with your WordPress instance or your email provider. You might check your spam folder and/or try setting your blog admin address to an alternate email. Keep in mind this is the email address under Options -> General, not all admins on the site.

    Thanks for this Daniel – I had tried the filter above but mistakenly put it in a functions file that was only loaded for admin pages, rather than in functions.php… Was obviously trying to be too smart for my own good!
