Notification – Custom Notifications and Alerts for WordPress

Notification – Custom Notifications and Alerts for WordPress | BracketSpace

Description

Custom Notifications and Alerts without a hassle. Notify anyone about any action in your WordPress. With powerful Merge Tags, you can endlessly customize your messages. Set unlimited Notifications in your WordPress Admin via the beautiful and intuitive interface within 5 minutes.

DEFAULT WORDPRESS EMAILS OVERWRITE

Now, with this plugin, you can easily disable default WordPress emails and replace them with your own. To do that you can use our awesome Wizard which will guide you through the process.

HOW DOES IT WORK

The Notification plugin is built with three main components:

  • Trigger – a WordPress action, ie. User registration or Post publication
  • Carrier – the thing which is being sent, ie. Email or Push
  • Merge Tag – dynamic content, ie. {user_email} or {post_permalink}

You can use them in any combination, adding as many Notifications as you want. They can be sent to multiple Recipients with the content you write.

The process is simple:

  • You select the Trigger
  • Compose your message with Merge Tags
  • Set Recipients
  • Save the Notification

From now on the Notification is working. Test it out and add more!

PERFECT FOR DEVELOPERS

The Notification plugin is easy to set in the WordPress Admin, but it’s even easier to extend with some sweet API.

You can create your own Triggers with any WordPress action. If you do in your code do_action( 'my_plugin_doing_awesome_thing' ) you can create a Trigger out of it.

This allows you to use the Notification plugin as a notification system in your own plugin or theme. How? Well, because of two things:

  • You can easily load it by copying the plugin files and including load.php file. A function known from Advanced Custom Fields plugin.
  • You can white label the plugin with just one function which is shipped in the plugin’s core. For free.

How easy extending the Notification plugin is? Let’s see:

  • Adding another Merge Tag to existing trigger – 1 line of code
  • Creating custom Trigger – one intuitive class definition and registration with a single function call
  • Defining Global Merge Tag – 1 line of code
  • Creating new Extension – we have a Boilerplate ready for you to start hacking

See the developer documentation if you don’t believe us.
