send SMS alerts to readers via post?

  • I use the SMS Plugin:


    What I REALLY want to do is, instead of logging into my control panel and having to type up a message in the admin control panel of this plugin is – when I create a new post to a specific category it then sends a SMS message to all registered users with the content of that post – (or probably just the excerpt to deal with SMS character limits). [Basically so I don’t have to do the same action twice]

    Any ideas on this??

  • I am thinking I can maybe combine the functionality of the SMS plugin with the functionality of this mailing list plugin:


    or possibly the subscribe2 plugin (both are very similiar)

    because, the SMS plugin just takes the message and send the text message out using the phonenumber@carrier.com email format.

    I’ll take a look and report back and see if I can come up with anything useful.

    if anyone else has any thoughts on this I would appreciate the advice. I will also report back as I work on this.

    this has been tougher then I thought because the subscribe2 plugin is very complex with a lot of moving parts. I thought I could pull out the essentials but I’m not sure about it.

    If anyone has any thoughts on this or would like to try to help it would be appreciated!

    So apparently I was making this WAY HARDER then it needed to be.

    I sat back and thought about it again and made a simple function that gets called on the action_hook publish_post and then just added that function to the SMS Text Message plugin. WORKS GREAT!

    If anyone wants this let me know.



    I’d like to try that? Could you give details of how to do this?

    I would like to try it too, more information is appreciated.
