Hi, I’m looking to purchase your plugin. My only concern is that it hasn’t been updated in a while. Do you have plans to keep supporting this plugin?



Sure, I am supporting and maintaining PSN. The current version is very stable, so there was no update recently. But there will new updates in 2017 ;-)

Hi, okay i am getting crazy! i am using your plugin together with Oasis Workflow Plugin. I create a workflow using Oasis Plugin that needs 2 step approvations. When the post is created the status is “Pending review” and when approved is “pubblished”. By the way no “rules log” are matching after that the post has been approved and so published. but if i change manually the status of the SAME post (from pending review to published) the notification are generated!!! what’s up?

Hi, i alread find the problem on oasis workflow plugin: We are about to release a new version in a week’s time which should have the fix for the same. Essentially, when we transition the post status, we need to explicitly call – wp_transition_post_status(), so that the post status change hooks get called.

Thanks for the update. That is right, the post transition status hook is essential and should also be implemented by plugins which change posts.

Based on this response received from your team when I was asking pre-purchase questions I purchased the plugin:

Thanks for your request. This is possible with two separate rules and the limitation “Editor restriction” (see http://docs.ifeelweb.de/post-status-notifier/rules.html#editor-restriction). One rule would be set to editor restriction “Administrator” and one to “Author”.

I hope I was able to help you. If you still have questions, please let me know.

So far it is working well and I am finding it very easy to learn and navigate.

However, I have run in to a snag today where 2 separate emails have to go out for the same post when edited. Only one is being generated.

Rule 1: Send email to post author confirming post has been edited.

- Send to post author - Status before – Publish - Status after – Publish - One email per TO recipient checked - Recipient – Post Author - Editor restriction – Author, Customer

This rule is working and the post author is receiving the emails with the proper email template.

Rule 2: Send email to site admin when the post author edits the post.

- Send to post site admin - Status before – Publish - Status after – Publish - One email per TO recipient checked - Recipient – Blog admin (and/or members of role administrator) - Editor restriction – Author, Customer

This email is never generated. I have tried changing the TO recipient, the editor restriction, and putting in a custom email. No matter what it seems like this rule is not run at all.

The only way the admin can get notified is if they are a CC or BCC to the email sent to author. Do not want this since the email content is different for author and for admin.

Look forward to your help.

Thank you.

Thanks for your reply. I was trying out the free version of that plugin and really liked it, but it was the one I mention above that was giving me problems. Admin was not receiving the emails it was supposed to for regular posts. Also, it was conflicting with the code built in to the theme I am using (CouponHut) to post CPTs. The form would hang on submit and not post through.

Hi again.. As mentioned in my earlier message, I was trying out a free version of what I thought was the same plugin you pointed me to on Code Canyon. Here is the link to what I am using: https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-user-frontend. They seem to be similar but have different authors listed. This free plugin works well for blog posts, however no emails are generated for blog admin or admin group for new blog posts. They are generated for edits and deletes no problem. Do you have any knowledge or experience with this particular plugin to know why I have compatibility issues with PSN for new posts? Of course too I am concerned about purchasing the recommended plugin and it not working how I need it to either. The other issue, unrelated to PSN, is with my theme and its coding for posting CPTs. I have messaged the theme author for his comments on that. Thanks!

I do not have experience with this particular plugin, but if the PSN rules work on edits and deletes, I am pretty sure the issue on new posts lies within this plugin. The recommended plugin works with PSN on creating new posts, but of course I can not tell whether it meets your requirements.

Silly question maybe but is it possible with your plugin to sent people who newly registered themselves as an author within wordpress a mail/notification with some info etc?

No, that is not possible because PSN only listens to post status transitions and a user registration does not trigger this event.

Thanks for your reply

1) As me understand this plugin is complete only email notification, where is the place listed notification for user log-in if they don’t check email or they created email of my web to be spam mail. Example i did that with many website because too much mail a day, i just visit website to check info notification when i need. How is your plugin work for this case???

2) Is it have option for user choose what they interested to get notification. Example: I have 3 catalog woocommerce product A , B, C
User 1: Like catalog A, they want to get all new posted product and update in catalog A.
the same with User 2 to 20- Catalog B, User 20 to100 – catalog C
It work like subcrible of forums of bbpress, all update within that forums the user will get notification and user also have listed of what they follow.
Is the plugin have this function???

If I understand you right, you want a shortcode that contains all already sent PSN notifications a user did receive but not opened or clicked a link in it? That will not be possible, sorry.

Thanks for your info. I just mean shortcode with count like facebook. But may i know why is NOT posible in code? I think you can code good in email why can not make it to be live website notify also, which is very important part notify also.

Sorry, but this feature is not the in the current focus of PSN.

I purchased for only one reason and that is to add my own HTML email template in it. I have tried all and everything but it does NOT convert the code to an actual email. I receive code by email. I would need a refund if this is not working.

Do you have any other active plugins regarding email functions? Maybe another plugin reverts the type of outgoing emails to text. Have you activated PSN’s log to monitor what is actually going out? HTML email are working, but it depends on the individual configuration of your system.

I’m having issues trying to setup notification for claims in WP Job Manager Claim Listing plugin. I can set the post type to Claim, but the statuses don’t seem to be pulling from the available plugin statues. In the plugin the statuses are Pending, Declined, & Approved, but these don’t show up in the list of Status Before and Status After. If I set both of those to “anything” it picks up the change and sends the email, but that makes it hard to be specific in the sent email. Any help would be appreciated.

No response? I thought this plugin was supported. If this slipped through, please respond asap

Oh sorry, it really seems this has slipped through. I do not have experiences with Claim listings. Could you please create a support ticket at http://www.ifeelweb.de/support/ and send me temporary access credentials that I can check it myself? Maybe on a test installation?


In mail template we use [post_title] and [post_editlink] placeholders.

After Wordpress update (using 4.7.1) [post_editlink] sudenly isn’t working anymore.

We didn’t change nothing on code/process involving PSN, except wordpress core and teme update.


Placeholder [post_editlink] depends on the user who caused the post status transition. If he/she is not allowed to edit the post, the placeholder would be empty. It relies on the function “get_edit_post_link” (https://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags/get_edit_post_link).

The behavior for this placeholder has changed? All [post_editlink] were working: post edit link was showing up for ALL email recipients before update.

No, it has not changed as there was no PSN update recently. But it may depend on who edited the post. Do you have other admins or users who might change posts via frontend plugins?

I have setup a rule in Post status Notifier with dynamic recipients. I have tested the rule setting in a custom recipient, and it wor and wriet in the log. I have setting the dynamic recipients code as this and setup logging {% set sql = “SELECT * FROM `wp_usermeta` um LEFT JOIN wp_users u ON um.user_id = u.ID WHERE um.meta_key = ‘ny_nyhed’ AND um.meta_value = ‘Ja’;” %} {% set users = db.get_results(sql) %} {% for user in users %} {{user.user_email}}, {% endfor %}

but no mail is send, can you help, is something missing. I have tested the sql stament in my mysql, and here the code is funtioning kind regards Ole

Hi again, see my last comment, can you please help

I have waited for an answer 1 week now, is the conclusion that dynamic recipients can’t work, the sql stament are not excecuted at all.

Sorry for my late reply. Yes, please create a ticket at http://www.ifeelweb.de/support/ and send me the account credentials. This case is too complex to solve it via the comments ;)


I have a pre-sale question about this plugin. I have a WooCommerce shop, and On expiration date product change category. Is it posible to send a email (survey) to all buyers of that product, but in delay of 12-24h?

Thanks for your request. Unfortunately you can not configure delays for notifications yet.

OK tnx, but I still have a question. Is it possible to send email to every customer who bought a product, when that product change category?

That is a rather complex case. I do not have enough in depth experiences with PSN and WooCoomerce to answer your question, sorry.

hi, pre-sale question: can the plugin do following: to send notice to admin when a customer shops for more than x amount of one specific product category. If yes, can it also do following: to divide between all individual admins for that shop: when customer Y will buy more than x amount, than admin Z will receive the notification. But if customer A does the same, than admin B will receive the note (there will be different groups of customers and each group has its own admin to take care of them) Thanks :)

Thanks for your request. First of all: which e-commerce system is it? How can you determine the shopping amount of a customer? If a custom post type gets generated for a purchase and there are functions to retrieve the amount of products or money for a certain customer, you can insert those values in a notification message, but unfortunately not use those values as a trigger to send or not send the email. Those custom triggers based on values are planned for a future release.

Hello, I bought the plugin but when I enter the purchase code, it does not work. Please I need your help.

Best regards, Domin

Please create a ticket at http://www.ifeelweb.de/support/ and if possible, send me temporary login credentials that I can check it myself.


I have purchased the plugin today. But for some reason I just cant get it to send mail. I typically use ‘send in blue’ for email. The lite version worked fine,

Sending a test email says ‘Test email could not be sent.’

Can you advise please?



Hi, can you please create a ticket at http://www.ifeelweb.de/support/ and provide me with a temporary admin account that I can check your setting myself.

Hi, I’m interested in purchasing the plugin. I tried the lite version but a lot of the features that I think I needed were pro version only.

Basically, I’m just looking to send a notification email when a post is published in a specific category. The email that gets sent however wouldn’t go to the registered users but rather a specific email (work organization). I have three of these categories so depending on which category is checked, the email is sent out to the email attached.

Is this possible with the plugin?

Thanks for your request. I guess so. You could create three different notification rules, one for every category and add different recipient email addresses per rule if you want. Or what exactly do you mean with “email attached”?


dcag Purchased

Sorry, by that I meant typing in an email we use at work rather than one registered via Wordpress. For example, I publish a post using the A category. Can I have it set to email acategorypeople@business.com with a post notification?

When I tried the Lite version, the only recipient options it gave me was admin and subscriber which these people wouldn’t be. Hopefully this makes more sense.


Sure, please check the docs about how to set up a new rule: http://docs.ifeelweb.de/post-status-notifier/rules.html#recipient

You’ll have the field “custom recipient” where you can enter any email address you want.

Thank you for the good work

Is it possible to use a blog in addition to the form fields Add an article?

And selection by Categories Category originally added by the site manager?

Thanks for your request and sorry, but I do not really understand what you mean. Please create a ticket at http://www.ifeelweb.de/support/ and try to explain it with some examples. Thanks :)

I was trying out the free version of that plugin but it’s giving me problems. if I set before status as ‘not pending’ and after status as ‘published’ it sends email also when I edit an old post and update the page….not only for new published post!

If you update an old post, its status before was “not pending” (it was published) and its status after was “published”. So the rule did it right.

Hi. I used your plugin without much of an issue before and it was working fine. I was testing it with a template for whenever someone publishes a new post. There were no issues. I then changed the email to what it needs to be set to after the tests were successful and I constantly get “Failed to send messages”. I have 4 now in the last week and I’ve yet to be able to send a successful notification. Can you please shed some light on this?

Thank you.
