Re: Plugin Idea: Email Notification for Moderation Events
Actually, it would be fairly easy to do.
All we need to do is hook into the header or footer.
The service would be passed a user_id, the message, and an action url. Optionally instead of a user_id, it could be the term “administrator” or “moderator” where it would alert all at that level.
The box would have a close button to ignore it and all the messages would then be accessible as a list under your profile under a new tab.
You’d have an option to be emailed anytime an alert was generated but typically you can keep that off unless you don’t visit the site often.
I was going to do this for my “report this post” plugin but I really needed the report feature right away so I got lazy and just used email.
Sounds like I have a new plugin to code next weekend.
