Contributor Notifications

Beschreibung

An incredibly simple and lightweight solution for alerting you of new pending posts from contributors and alerting contributors when their submissions are either approved or declined.

Features

  • Sends email to admin if new post pending
  • Sends email to author if pending post approved
  • Sends email to author if pending post declined

This plugin only works for the Pending post status.

Some examples of when this plugin might be useful include when you allow registration on your site and by default, new users are granted the Contributor role, or when using a plugin like User Submitted Posts.

Why aren’t emails being sent?

I’m using the built-in wp_mail function. Most hosting environments (even shared hosts like Bluehost and GoDaddy) can handle email, but not very well out-of-the-box and require being optimized. It actually takes a bit of work to make sure your emails are deliverable. Some recommendations:

  • Check that your SPF, DKIM, and other email records are set up correctly (mail-tester.com is a great all-around tool for checking and fixing common email deliverability issues)
  • Even on shared hosts, you should be able to add a dedicated IP to your account for very cheap (which allows you to get away from shared IPs that have a bad reputation because your neighbors are spamming)
  • If all else fails, you can abandon using your own server for mail altogether, and host offsite with a free or paid third-party service like Gmail (check out the WP Mail SMTP plugin to go that route)
