Added note about modeling after Trac's plain text template.

Email Notifications for FullBlogPlugin


This plugin uses the blog change interface in FullBlogPlugin to send out email notifications for:

  • new posts
  • updated posts
  • comment added
  • deleted posts

Email notifications are sent to the user who made the change. Notifications can also be sent to other users or a distribution list by specifying the smtp_always_cc option.

The emails are sent in plain text using a template that was modeled after Trac's ticket_notify_email template.

If you are using the AnnouncerPlugin, you should use its FullBlogPlugin rather than the FullBlogNotificationPlugin.

You should first configure Trac to send notifications. For details see t:TracNotification.

Once Trac is configured to send notifications, using the trac.ini options available below you can get notifications of blog changes:

always_notify_author = False
from_email = trac+blog@localhost
from_name = None
notification_actions = post_created, post_updated, post_comment_added, post_deleted
smtp_always_cc = []
subject_template = $prefix $blog.title ($action)
