I contribute to a few other blogs out there as I’m able, all of which are WordPress-based like this one. A seemingly simple function has been lacking in my mind, and the community seems to agree with me. But for some unknown reason, the answer has not been produced until now.
My first WordPress plugin, Notify on Draft Post is now in its first public release. Here’s the rundown:
This plugin has now been accepted and is available for download via WordPress.org’s plugin site.
*** This tool has reached its usefulness. Version 2.2 of WordPress now includes the functionality natively. ***
Cleaned up some of the comments within the code itself. It should be well documented by this point!
Check that user *can’t* Publish a post on their own (Contributor, for instance)
Selectable “ready to publish” flag for submission
WP Moderator notification email (admin email)
The file notify-draft.php must be put within the wp-content/plugins/ directory of your WordPress installation. Activate the plugin from the administration interface…done!
I would like to add some options for Notify on Draft Post to allow the selection of an alternate email or multiples. By default, the product utilizes the site’s defined “admin” email address.
