  • Nice and easy o install. Thanks

    Brian, plugin looks great, I want to try it. Before trying it, I was looking for a feature on your page — to limit notifications to 1 (or 2) categories. I don’t want to email All categories because I am going to stay busy back-logging back-dated posts for quite some time (until I finish some non-importable archives), and I don’t want people getting dozens of out-dated emails.

    I saw this in your To Do List:
    “Add notification only on specific categories (readers choice at signup)”

    and wondered if it already has the feature for the admin to choose the categories sent?

    I’ll post a comment on your blog if I don’t hear a response here.

    Currently you can choose on a per-post basis (there’s a drop down to select).

    If by default you only wanted to send for specific categories you’d need to change the query in the code.

    I’ve been experimenting with this plugin and have several accounts (e.g. gmail, msn, my own, etc.) that I’ve sent the html formatted message to see how it appears. I am sending the full content of the post and for some reason in MS Outlook there are no scroll bars. It just seems to cut the message off. This is not the case for web-based email readers, which work fine. Has anyone else seen this problem or can offer a solution? Thanks.

    This plugin gives erros under wordpress 1.5.2
    I get this error in wp-admin

    Warning: main(/maillist/wpemn_config.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/sense4de/public_html/rossifiles/wp-content/plugins/wp-email-notification/index.php on line 19

    After upgrading to 1.5.2 from 1.5 this plugin stopped working.

    Can anybody pleas ehelp me?

    Thank you

    1. If your installation of WordPress isn’t located at:

    And the maillist directory isn’t located at:

    You *WILL* need modify the code to match your server settings


    a. Line 19 *WILL* need to be updated…

    line 19: include (“$DOCUMENT_ROOT/maillist/wpemn_config.php”);

    b. If your maillist directory is located in your wordpress directory,
    you can use this instead of line 19

    line 22: include (ABSPATH.”/maillist/wpemn_config.php”);

    Great plug-in! Quick question…

    I was modifying the ’email_notification_2.2.php’ file to change the plain text format. Now I get this error:

    Parse error: parse error, unexpected ‘?’ in /home/iloveco/public_html/read/wp-content/plugins/wp-email-notification/email_notification_2.2.php on line 104

    I never touched line 104, but I’m thinking it messed up after decompressing the .zip file. Should there be special characters where the ?’s are?

    Line 104
    $post_content = str_replace(array(“??,”??”,”??,”??,”??,”??,” “), array(‘”‘,'”‘,’?,’?,’?,’…’,’ ‘), $post_content);

    Fixed… just decompress the .zip file on an EN system.

    I seem to be having a problem with this plugin not sending an email for posts created using xmlrpc.php. I use w.bloggar on windows and ecto on the mac, and making blog posts with either of these programs do not seem to be sending out the email. Only emails made through the wordpress web interface actually send out the email message.

    I thought is was related to this bug fix which supposedly should have fixed it with version 1.5.2 which I am running. However, I still seem to be having the same problem. Any ideas?

    any help with the publish_post() issue i mentioned when using ecto and w.bloggar??

    Just implemented the plugin. Everything works fine, but my blog operates with charset=ISO-8859-15″, and once HTML mails are sent by the plugin, they seem to be formatted with other charset, such as UTF8, as special characters are not properly displayed.

    Where can I specify HTML mail charset? Any hint?


    Hi folks,

    just to confirm that i suffer the same situation explained in my previous post when sending plain text notification emails. My blog operates with european 8859-15 charset, and mails received are not compatible with that charset. They seem to be formatted with UTF-8, as ampersand characters are not respected.

    Do you have any hint on what´s happening?

    Thanks in advance

    My WP is available at

    do you happen to post directly through the WP interface or do you use a third-party tool like ecto or w.bloggar?? just wondering because I still can’t seem to get the email notification to work unless I post directly through the WP interface.

    I use WP interface to send notifications. I don’t use any kind of third party applications to send mails.

    Do you have any hint about the charset encoding question I’ve mentioned?

    not yet. I have been looking into the code a little for you, but mostly I’ve been trying to work out the publish_post() logic not firing off. I’ll see what I can find out for you.
