Version 1.3.0: Peter’s Collaboration E-mails for WordPress MU
Hi! This is the page for Peter’s Collaboration E-mails for WordPress MU. Starting from version 1.1.0, it is a forked version from the normal WordPress version of this plugin. Update: note that I have not updated this fork since before WordPress 2.8.
Note that this plugin uses some WordPress database functions that were introduced in WordPress MU 2.5, thus you need to at least be running that version of WordPress MU.
The purpose of this plugin remains the same: you can define “approvers” based on the Contributor user that wrote a post or based on the category assigned to the post. The approvers are thus e-mailed whenever there is a new post waiting to be approved. This way they don’t have to log in all the time to check for pending posts. Also, whenever a post is approved, the Contributor user is notified via e-mail.
The MU version of the plugin can be put in one of two places.
- mu-plugins directory: This enables the plugin for all blogs without requiring any manual activation. Administrators can automatically start defining approver rules in the Settings > Collaboration e-mails menu. Note that they must visit this page at least once so that the plugin tables can be created.
- plugins directory: The plugin must be activated on a per-blog basis. Then, approver rules can be defined.
For efficiency sake, in both scenarios, the relevant plugin tables are automatically removed whenever the blog is deleted (and in the latter scenario, also whenever the plugin is de-activated).
