Content Submission

This plugin does a number of things, but mainly it allows the user editing the content in Joomla 1.6+ (Articles + Content Categories) to receive a notification email upon editing/creating a new content item.

2.7.0 2015-03-11 / Omar Ramos
+ Added toggle option to be able to turn on/off notifications on new article creation.
+ Added toggle option to be able to turn on/off notifications on article update.
+ Added toggle option to be able to turn on/off notifications on new category creation.
+ Added toggle option to be able to turn on/off notifications on category update.

In the notification email, the previous version of the content is attached in a txt file and html file, as well as the new version.

The other information about the content is also displayed in the email.

You can also add additional people to be notified upon editing content (such as administrators, or other key people in charge of keeping the quality of the content intact).

The plugin will also notify you with a copy of the article before it is deleted completely from the system (which should make it easier to restore something if it is deleted accidentally).

You may call it a poor man's version control system (using email as the storage mechanism) but I think it will work quite nicely for a lot of sites and I hope you enjoy it!

On top of the above, I've also added in some common corrections for content pasted from Microsoft Word, but I'm looking for additional examples of things that could be corrected so if you have those I'd really like to add them in so that your HTML can be cleaned automatically upon submission!

I bought it yesterday and installed. An error message appeared on the front of our site. I submitted a support ticket, an updated version with a 'fix' arrived next day - how good is that, considering the time difference on opposite sides of the globe! ....and it works.
This plugin does just what it says and was easy to install.

We needed a plugin that would send out notifications to the Admin when an Editor made updates to existing articles. Joomla will send an email to the Admin when new articles were created if "Receive System emails" is checked but not when an article is edited.

We've been using The Content Update Notifications plugin for about a month now and it does just what we need and is working great. I had a couple support questions as well and Omar was quick to reply.

I researched other "update notification" options and this is the best. I give 5 stars for the product, and 5 stars for support.

I had trouble listing the 2.5 version through the JED so I'm just combining the listing for the 1.5 version with the 2.5 version. Both extensions are free to download on the website...enjoy! ArtCats is a module that can automatically list Articles from within a designated Category or can list Categories from within a designated Section. Compatible only with Joomla 1.5 and later. Not for use with...
