Notify Registered Users of new Content
« on: October 24, 2006, 11:45:56 pm »

Hi,

I am looking for a way to advise all my registered users that there are new images available to view.  This would ideally be a notification sent when the content became active in the gallery - e.g. when the admin had approved the files (as in my situation).

Is there anything out there for this?

Thanks

CW,

That's possible, but you would need to make a mod.  The email address for the users is in the db.  You would need to ask them when they signed up if they would like to be notified, but one of the existing fields in the _users table could be used to indicate permission. 

This sounds like a good idea.  If you make the mod, please post it!

Hi,

Thaks for the feedback so far.

I know lots of folks have mods to notify users of new comments.  However, all I am looking for is an email notification to users (who have selected to receive the notification) when new images and/or albums are added to the gallery.

Can any provide a completed plug-in for this, or advise the code changes required (step-by-step)?

Thanks

No ideas folks?

Perhaps someone can recommend an Open Source Mailing List tool I could use in conjunction with the Gallery then?  Something I could regularly extract email addresses from Coppermine into the DB for the mailing list, create & generate an email message in the mailing list app and have it send the notification for me.  It's a little bit more manual than I had hoped for, but would give me the functionality I need.  Any suggestions?

Thanks

Yes, this is different than comments and getting a email on *new* content would be a nice addition to the Gallery.  While I can see emailing on new comments may not be a standard option to coppermine, emails on new *graphical content* seems more of a feature that should be standard - that is IMHO [however I think both should be standard].  Of course a member should *always* be able to opt out of any auto-email being sent from coppermine.  ;)
