You can use the plugin to notify administrators when someone submits an article. Or/and notify users about a new published content item.

The extension has a great number of settings, so we'll try to describe several possible scenarios to use it.

Some features

  • Works fully or with some limitations with Joomla core articles, K2 items, DP Calendar events, HotSpots markers, JEvents events, JDownloads items and so on. Can be setup to work with most joomla components, which use standard joomla event plugin triggers or even own plugin triggers in some cases.
  • Sending of emails can be restricted by categories, article ids, user groups, particular users, actions performed (publish/unpublish) and so on.
  • Notifications can be turned off in the content item. So you may edit and save the article a number of times before the final save action is performed and a notification is sent.
  • Fully customizable or hardcoded (but still customizable) mail body.
  • Mailbody contains links to view and/or edit the updated content item (user must be logged in to follow edit links)
  • Users can unsubscribe from notifications
  • Previous version of the content item can be attached to the email in several formats (DIFF, MySQL to reimport, plaintext) to compare changes and to later restore the item if needed.
  • Can send emails to a large number of users in the ajax mode, so emails are sent little by little and no timeouts or limit overcome happen .
  • Can have many groups of rules - notifcation rules for superadmins, separate rules for regular users, separate for different components and so on.
  • And so on...

    Since the plugin has a number of features it has a number of settings.

    Feel free to ask for support if you meet any troubles (do not understand configuration, your setting work not as expected etc.)

Goog Job, Developer!

I really like this helpful and intuitive extension. I have

It works perfectly, no problems at all.

I couldn't ask for more.

This plug-in does what it says 'on the tin'. It's easy to install, and has a very wide range of options of what to notify, and to which user, or group of users etc.

The minor downside is that it takes a while to get used to the set-up logic involved. I found some initial experimentation worked wonders and thereafter I was quickly to configure the plug-in as I wanted.

The documentation is minimal, but to be fair I don't think it would have been easy to write comprehensive help notes, much easier to experiment to get the hang of it.

If at first you don't think its working check your e-mail spam bin ! I didn't and that cost me an hour or so of wondering what I was doing wrong !

There are a few typos in the English language used in the plug-in, but these do not affect usability.

Overall a must have plug-in for any Joomla site where you have multiple front end editors or contributors.

I will install it as a matter of routine in all my Joomla sites from now on.



Exelent plugin

A plugin that should be builtin into the core.

Hope you can add some additional functionality in the future, like notification when someone submits e.g. a event from a component (like jevents).

Really helpful, but in future version will be front-end user option to subscribe on specific categories? 10+

Owner's reply: I hope yes, but I cannot promise.

I was looking for a way to get email notifications when content was modified and submitted by users, this plugin proved to be priceless. Thanks to the developer for making this possible! :)

Excellent Tool!

Downloaded the version listed here and had a couple issues so I contacted the developer who promptly supplied a response to download the 2.x dev. version of the plugin. I, like the other reviewers, think this plugin should be included in the core of Joomla. When you have multiple publishers and editors its nice to see who did what so that you can give praise or lay blame. This is an absolute must for Joomla users that have multiple publishers and want to know what is being changed on the site immediately as it happens. Plus, the support is timely and helpful! Great job!

Thank you very much for this -- it should be part of Joomla! Works exactly as promised, no tricks needed. Very good job!

For being perfect, this extension should offer the option to send the notification e-mail to the addresses of publishers and admins already registered in the site, so the required list of e-mails to which to send the notifications would be optional (or, maybe, it could be used also as an "opt out" list, which would include the e-mails of admins and publishers and allow the user to de-select one or more of them). I hope the developer take this as a suggestion.

Owner's reply: For those users who read this comment, the feature requests written here are implimented in the current version.

We are a small unit - 4 people are allowed to modify articles on our website. There is only one thing I dont know whether I do wrong ornot.

If one person add an article, say User A via backend, and another user, say B, change add content in this article via frontend, I get a email than someone chneged the article, but not the name of the one who changed. the email send me the information that the articlethe author!

Is it possible to check who logged in and changed?

I hope u understand what I mean:-)

regards from Germany and thanks for this plugin.

Owner's reply: Hi, Klaus

Please mail me . I will to fix your issue but I don't see the problem you explain, so I need more information from you.

What a truly excellent plugin.

I've trailed round all the "content" extensions, looking for something that allows me to know what articles have been submitted. After looking at the possibility of forcing "Section and Category", which would have meant setting up lists for the forced "section" in order to show unpublished articles, I found this one. The lovely thing about this plugin is that you don't need any active action on the part of the publisher! The moment someone creates a new article, the Publisher(s) are notified by e-mail and a front-end and or back-end link is supplied so that the article can be reviewed and published without any hard work!

This should be part of the core Joomla system.

Hm.. A little hard to explain. Imagine, you are surfing a joomla web-site. You open a page with some content and feel a passionate desire to create an account. You start the process by clicking a login link, fill in forms and so on. Finally you perform the first login - and see your profile page instead of the article you have been viewing before you start the sign up process. This plugin redirect you to the last page, you has been viewing before starting to sign up or before starting to login. Allows to autologin users by emailed activation link click.

In Joomla authors or articles can edit own articles disregading publishing state. Imagine, you allow users to submit articles at your web-site. Your managers review such articles and publish it. But some day later an author was stolen by aliens/ZOG/international terrorists or other good people. So enemies got access to your users's account and could alter already published articles, e.g. by adding a swastika. Here is the time to use the plugin! When you install and publish it, authors cannot edit own published articles (untill the author has publishing permissions in Joomla ACL, which means that one belongs to your web-site administration).

By default PhocaGallery crops from the center. So at portrait images heads are cut off. Sending greetings to Maximilien François Marie Isidore de Robespierre and Procrustes. With this plugin you can select where to start crop from and what to cut off. Legs(crop start from top), heads(crop start from bottom), heads and legs (default PhocaGallery behaviour)
