It has certainly been a busy week for the WordPress.com team with the launch of Subscriptions and now Email Post Changes, a new feature designed to improve author collaboration by sending emails whenever a post is modified. Basically, it’s the Post Revisions feature, but with email notification for registered authors.
To enable Email Post Changes, go to Settings/Email Post Changes in your admin panel. You’ll be able to choose which registered authors receive notifications and add additional email addresses.
If you have a self-hosted WordPress blog with multiple authors, you can install the official Email Post Changes plugin to enjoy the same great features. You may also be interested in Audit Trail (“keep track of what is going on inside your blog”), Capability Manager (“to manage WordPress roles and capabilities”), Highlight Author Comments (to “display comments made by a post’s author in a distinctive style with no need to edit your template files”), Impostercide (to “prevent unauthenticated users from ‘signing’ a comment with a registered user’s email address, name or URL”), and WP Word Count (to “give you word count statistics for your blog’s posts and pages . . . as well as breakdowns for each of your blog’s authors”).
Do you run a blog with multiple authors? Which plugins do you use? Are you planning to use Email Post Changes?
