    When you run a multi-author WordPress blog or allow guest posters to submit the post directly from WordPress dashboard, I’m sure you must be looking forward a way to get instant Email notification when ever someone submit a post or when you reject or publish a post, Author should be notified too.

    Here I’m talking about one plugin call WordPress Post Status notifer plugin which does exactly what we are talking about here. Status notifier is a simple plus and play WordPress plugin and quite useful for any multi-author blog. This plugin notifies the admin when ever some one submit a post for review and when you publish a post or reject it by changing the status to draft, author will get instant Email notification.

    Once you have downloaded and installed status notifier plugin, you can access it’s setting under Settings > Status notification. Though there is not much in the configuration page. Here is a screenshot of setting page of this plugin:

    Some of the features of Status Notifier plugin are :

    • Notifies the admin
    • Notifies the contributor when post is accepted
    • No database access requires, therefore plugin do not add any overhead
    • Simple install and activate plugin
    • Multiple Email notification

    We have been using this plugin on ShoutMeLoud for the first time we converted it into a revenue sharing multi-author blog. Though I miss an option to add comment before you reject the post, so that guest author will know what is missing  and what he can do to improve the post. Do you know any such plugin which let us add comment before we reject the post?

    Although i have just 2 contributors, for the time being, i dont think it will be of much help but for blogs with more than 4 or 5 contributors, it will certainly be a life saver.

    Thanks for this info Harsh, I sent an email asking what you are using.

    I had installed ‘Dashboard: Pending Review’ plugin to show on my dashboard in case I logged on. I might remove it now as I will be getting emails.

    I have tested the plugin and all works fine, but it would be nice if you also received an email when the post has been deleted. This would just be for information purposes.



    there is another nice one I am using right now: Post Status Notifier (http://wordpress.org/plugins/post-status-notifier-lite/) It’s very flexible and you can define own rules.
