    I just want everyone to know that this works fine for me in 3.0.1 (with Multi-site enabled).

    I got this email when I changed the Home page (xxx = name edited out):

    Page changed

    Hi folks, I am using 3.0.1 and just confirmed that email works with the "Check Email" plugin. However, this Email Post Changes plugin is not doing anything at all. It appears to be activated, the settings have been set to send to two working email addresses. But when I edit a page, I get no email at all.

    Any ideas on how to debug this? Any suggestions of alternate plugins?

    Just figured out what was going wrong. The site had been set to not save revisions. Since this plugin extends the regular revision process diff checking, the fact that revisions were not being saved meant the plugin code was never called, even though it was activated.

    I would recommend that the install instructions remind folks to make sure revisions are enabled and that the settings page include a warning if it finds that revisions are disabled.

    In any case, my problem is solved, the plugin is working great!

    I'm trying to make this plug-in working but it's impossible. I have installed it but nothing happens. No email sent...

    and I have revisions enabled :(
    (I'm nebbie, sorry)

    any help will be appreciated.

    @jordimp get the "Check Email" plugin and see if you can get email from your WP installation at all. It is quite common for WP to work but not be able to send any email due to its configuration or limitations of the server hosting it.

    Also, this plugin does not seem to get called when XML-RPC changes are made. So if you are using almost any third-party tool to make changes, this plugin will ignore them.
