Introduction

Extension Specific, K2 extensions

Notify Plugin adds some simple and effective email notifications to the K2 extension for Joomla.

  • Get this

It will let you:

-Set Global email alerts for all K2 front end item submissions

-Set email alerts for specific K2 categories

-Send email notifications to single or multiple email addresses

It adds a configuration screen to K2 categories which enables you to specify submission and notifications per K2 category. You can also override these settings in the main notify plugin to set site wide global options.

The plugin settings will also let you include the K2 item in the notification email along with extrafields and provide a link back to the item for quick edit and approval or publishing.

Value for money

Reasonable price but could use better features

I used this to: Ideally a feature that allowed you to subscribe a group as a whole instead of individuals would be more feasible if you need to notify a large number of people. We enter the emails manually but in a magazine setting with editors, group would work better

I needed multiple site admins to be notified by email when any users made edits or added content to a live site from the front end using K2, thus allowing the admins to review the content prior to it being published.

This plugin provides this functionality into K2 with such simplicity either via the general settings in the plugin parameters or by the specific settings in the category window. It was so easy to setup and has worked fine without issue.

I have not used the comment notification side of the plugin yet but am very happy with this plugin.
