Post Status Notifications

Description

The Post Status Notifications plugin by 99 Robots provides an easy way to notify Administrators when their Contributors submit a post for review.

Additionally, when an administrator publishes the post, the original author will be notified via email that they can see their post live on the site.

These email notifications ensure posts are not waiting for reviewers who otherwise would have to check WordPress admin manually for posts in the pending review status.

Features

Get a better editorial workflow by improving communication related to articles submitted for review and subsequently published by administrators.

  • Email notification to Admin or Editor when a post is submitted for review
  • Email notification to Contributor, All Users, Admins or Editors when a post is published on the site
  • Custom Email Headers
  • Custom Email Subject and Message
  • Support for custom post types
  • Email based on user role
  • Share Links

This is great plugin for every site that accepts user submitted content, has multiple authors, or site owners running content-heavy websites. Enhance your editorial workflow with proper communication.

<!– wp:paragraph –> <p class=””>Since I cannot create another review, I can only edit this one negatively. This plugin was great, however, I cannot get it to work with the Block editor. I turned off the two-step publishing process, but it still won’t go out. No-one has answered either of my support requests, https://wordpress.org/support/topic/compatibility-with-block-editor-2/ or https://wordpress.org/support/topic/compatibility-with-block-editor-emails-not-sent/. It seems the support is severely lacking. Can’t wait any longer. Going to change to another method.</p> <!– /wp:paragraph –>

Lousy. I am an admin and I needed it to receive notifications when someone leaves a “pending post”, but instead he sends me horrible emails with very long links when I publish the note that was pending. In other words, it informs me about what I did. Completely useless.

I have to say I have Easy WP SMTP installed and all emails from my WordPress are sent via a googlemail account. But I am sure it should work also with usual network mail.
