When a contributor submits an article... what then? (2 posts)

    We had a contributor submt an artoicle for the first time today.

    The trouble is, I only found out about it because he told me! I would imagine that somewhere on the Administrator dashboard, it should flash up a message saying you have a contributor article pending review or something like that?

    but it doesn't?

    Does the contributor have to email an admin to let them know? the only way I found out about it was by looking in the posts area and there it was, "pending review". Even in the "Right Now" window on the dashboard, it says "Pending: 0" which is wrong, isn't it?

    thanks for any advice!

    There's nothing in WP core to alert admins/editors to a new contribution but there's probably a few plugins out there that might offer this functionality.
