[Plugin: Email Alerts] only sending emails for logged in users (3 posts)

    Hi there, I'm using this plugin so the blog editors can get emails when comments are posted or waiting for moderation. However, it only seems to send alerts for users who are logged in and make comments... and most of our readers are not registered or logged in. I am also using the WP-SMTP plugin, but since it's working some of the time I'd say that's not the issue.

    Is there a setting I'm missing?

    Hi there,

    The Email Alerts plugin was originally commissioned to help a small number of administrators administer a group blog... this is why it's designed as it is. The plugin allows an administrator to choose what they want to receive alerts about (comments needing moderation, comments being published and/or posts being published).

    Hope this clarifies things a bit. I'm happy to extend the plugin, but (and here's the ugly bit) this is how I make my living so unless someone or some organisation sponsors me to do the work it will likely not get a high priority. Sorry. If you want to get in touch about this, please do.

    Hi there,
    This plugin would only work to send comment approvals but not for comments waiting in queue. Your stock response doesn't address the issue, but thanks, we are using another plugin.
