Support » Plugin: Better Notifications for WP » Set multiple notification rules at once

  • Resolved spirosmousouris



    I am setting up a WP 5.2.2 using the BNFW plugin , version 1.7.3.

    I have a lot of categories and I want to set notification rules for each one.

    I can set them manually, one notification for one category : send a notification if a new post with this category is made (x20)
    or I can maybe edit a file or a database table so I can insert all the rules at once. So maybe I can edit or parse a file or do an INSERT in a table, and set all the notification rules at once?

    Is there a way to do it like this, set rules in a bulk way?

    Thank you for your time,

    Hi @spirosmousouris,
    Thanks for your message.

    You’ll need to use the Conditional Notifications add-on to do this. You may be able to duplicate them in bulk in the database, although I don’t really have a suggestion on how you could go about that, but it should be possible.

    Hi @voltronik . Thanks for the quick reply.

    Yes, I am using BNFW , but I am asking about bulk actions to set multiple notifications at once.

    Do you have more info about setting them in bulk in the database? Which table should I use and make INSERTs there?

    Thanks again

    Hi @spirosmousouris,
    Sure. The Notifications are just a custom post type so you’ll need to be looking at the wp_posts and wp_postmeta tables.

    Hello again @voltronik ,

    I am looking at the database tables you suggested and I cannot find the notifications.

    Let me rephrase what I am looking for :

    Where do notifications are saved? I want to access the place where they are saved and insert all the notifications I want, once. I dont want to manually set one notification at a time.

    Hi @spirosmousouris,
    I do understand. The post type is called bnfw_notification and the data for this is stored in the wp_posts and wp_postmeta tables.

    You’ll need to have created at least one notification of the type you want to duplicate in order to see how it’s created and stored in the database.

    Hope this helps.
