Introduction

Content Notify is a premium WordPress plugin that allows anyone to create their own email subscriptions, alerting them of newly published or updated content (posts/pages/custom post types) from your WordPress website. They can also limit their subscription to a specific category/tag/taxonomy should they wish. Emails look great as they’re nicely formatted using HTML.
This functionality is normally only found in a handful of WordPress themes. This plugin aims to expand on this functionality, and to make it available to use on any WordPress website.

Some example use cases are:

  • Allowing visitors to set-up an email subscription to alert them of new ‘Jobs’ (custom post type) posted under ‘Technology’ (custom taxonomy).
  • Allowing users to set-up an email subscription to alert them about new ‘Products’ that are added to a WooCommerce store.
  • Allowing only site users that are logged in, to create an email subscription to alert them of recently updated ‘Posts’ (default post type) that are tagged as ‘Members-only’ (default category).

How it Works

In a nutshell, the user journey can be described this way:

  • User sets up subscription by entering details in form.
  • Form is submitted and validated. Errors are shown if form is invalid. Form is hidden and success message shown if valid.
  • Email is sent to user to verify their subscription.
  • User verifies their subscription via link in email.
  • When the site is populated with something that matches the user’s subscription, an HTML email alert is sent to them.
  • User can unsubscribe via a link at the bottom of every alert associated with this subscription.
