    Better Notifications for WordPress

    Add to List

    Better Notifications for WP is a simple but powerful plugin for beginners to advanced users that allows you to customise the email notifications that WordPress sends using the WYSIWYG editor and shortcodes. All of the default WordPress email notifications are available to customise as well as lots of new ones. You can choose to send notifications to individual users, multiple users, all users in a user role, multiple roles – you name it! You can also power-up your notifications with Premium Add-ons. Emails are sent out via your WordPress website (using wp_mail) but can be sent via SMTP using an appropriate 3rd party plugin should you wish.

    Here’s a quick walkthrough of the plugin in action:

    An Example:

    You want all the users in the Editor role to be notified via email when a new post is published and you’d like to customise it to include your logo along with the author’s name and date / time it was published – with this plugin, that’s easy.

    A handy list of shortcodes you can use is available here.

    Premium Add-ons

    Power-up your notifications using add-ons:

    Notification Add-on Bundles – Everything you need for your WordPress notifications. Save big when you buy an add-on bundle. Instant access.

    Subscriptions (GDPR) – Allow users to manage their subscriptions for BNFW notifications.
    If you want to let users create their own email notifications, check out my other plugin: Content Notify.

    Conditional Notifications – Limit certain notifications depending on which categories, tags, post formats, or terms you choose.

    Custom Fields – Provides a number of new shortcodes allowing you to include data from custom fields and custom user fields created using ACF.

    Send to Any Email – Send notifications to non-WordPress Users.

    Digest – Group multiple notifications into a single digest notification.

    Global Override – Override some of the settings of notifications directly when editing a post, page, or custom post type.

    Reminders – Send a reminder to your users and/or user roles when a post, page, or custom post type hasn’t been updated after a set amount of time. Also send a notification when a user hasn’t logged in for a set amount of time.

    Multisite – Adds new notifications and shortcodes for WordPress Multisite to Better Notifications for WP.

    Profile Builder – Adds compatibility and new notifications and shortcodes for Profile Builder Free, Hobbyist, and Pro plugins to Better Notifications for WP.
