Notifier v6.0

Posted October 23, 2005, in Administrative Interface.


The award-winning MT-Notifier plugin for Movable Type significantly enhances the notification options you have available to you in your installation. As the oldest continuously-maintained notification plugin for Movable Type, MT-Notifier has earned a large following in the community, and each release provides ever-easier access to the inner workings of Movable Type.

While you will find notification options within Movable Type itself, they must be sent manually and can only notify you of new entries. Other notification plugins also exist, but they are far more limited than MT-Notifier. By extending the notification process to allow subscriptions on individual entries, across categories or even entire blogs, visitors to your site can effortlessly keep up with nearly anything you have to offer!

The newest release of MT-Notifier integrates more seamlessly than ever with the Movable Type interface. Control options using familiar plugin settings. Take advantage of itemset action menus in Movable Type to provide functions where you need them the most. Easily add and even update subscriptions while you are doing your regular work, without having to find the option buried in yet another menu.

And now, for the first time, a plugin also offers integrated search (including quick search!) functionality, allowing you to easily find - and even replace - data in your system by using the familiar search options that you already know in Movable Type. Search for email and IP addresses, filter on date range, and even edit subscriptions in place on the listing screen!


Movable Type versions: 4.3

Chad currently resides in Charlotte, North Carolina, though he is most definitely not a Southerner. In fact, he's lived in such varied places around the United States as Chicago, Seattle, and even Southern California. Strangely, no one considers Southern California to be The South. Nonetheless, he lives in Charlotte with his wife, kids, and an ever-growing collection of stray dogs. Several years ago, after leaving the corporate world, Chad decided that he would set up shop for himself and Everitz Consulting was born. There, he provides services related to Movable Type, TypePad and just about any other platform you might imagine, and has contributed community plugins such as the award-winning MT-Notifier, the acclaimed anti-spam plugins MT-Approval and MT-Moderate, the venerable MT-SomeDays, and a variety of others, all while continuing to offer network consulting to those who need it. In his ever-dwindling spare time, Chad also continues to blog at Don't Back Down, and also writes elsewhere as time permits. Which is to say not very often.
