new module: notify (beta)

wheat's picture

I installed a new module designed to send email notifications of changed content, including comments and etc. It is opt-in only. If you want to try it out, follow these steps:

1) Click the My Account link in the navigation pane.
2) Click the My Notification Settings tab
3) Enable notifications globally and enable them on the specific types about which you would like to be notified.

This runs on a cron job. The interval is global for the entire site. I've set it at 3 hours for right now. We can bump it up or down depending upon your feedback.

Worked fine for me! I ran

Worked fine for me! I ran the cron manually to see if "notify" would work, and it did very nicely. I got an email notifying me of two new posts and one new comment, with HTML links to each. I set mine for full body notifications, so I can read the entire thing, if I like, before linking over. But you can get just titles or titles + teasers if you'd like a shorter email.

This is a feature I know a lot of people have wanted for a long time. So I hope you dig it.

I just set it

so I'll see how it works and let you know.

Works

Actually, I just turned it off because I received 4 emails overnight with each email containing numerous links... I'll have to look closer at the settings and try again. But it certainly works.

I think I should probably set it once every 12 or 24 hours, now that we know it's working.
