Email Notifications for FullBlogPlugin

Notice: This plugin is unmaintained and available for adoption.


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.
