Allows the site editors to send an e-mail to the blog users. Credits to Catalin Ionescu who gave me (Vincent Pratt) some ideas for the plugin and has
Can you show Full Name of the user, not user name, when select for receiving email? user name in many cases cannot tell who is who
This has worked nicely for me for a couple of years.
But recent updates have been sending the full articles, while I wish to use excerpts as "ticklers" to bring our members onto the website and to participate in the blogger. I've not found a way of correcting that, so today I removed Email Users and will now reinstall a clean updated version to see if it will work for me again.
Just maybe there with a conflict with another like plugin called (?)"Notify Users". I've removed that because it had no option for using excerpts.
The plugin is good, but when I insert/modify a new page (not post), I send a notification for my users, based on roles or individually, but the message is not customisable.
Example of the standard message:
I would like to bring your attention on a new post published on the blog. Details of the post follow; I hope you will find it interesting.
BUT MY SITE IS NOT A BLOG AND I DONT PUBLISHED A POST.
If this message header was customisable, was funtastic and complete, for blogs, web stores, web sites, etc...
It's a good plug-in and seems well behaved, but...
1) The "group" email is based on wordpress groups, and in general I don't find it very useful (ie -- almost always one of the editors is an admin as well, so selecting editors misses that person).
2) The "post notification" email is set and none-editable (really -- perhaps you might want to tell everyone WHY they should take a look at the post).
3) A recent update to the plug in removed pre-fixing the post with the site name ( [xxx] ) which should really be settable in a configuration option (on/off; default to site name -- but editable).
Like I said, the plug-in does work; and it's useful... but it could be much better; and on my list to re-engineer it if the author doesn't improve it.
