blog post macro and email notifications?

Tsol Jun 28, 2012

Hi everybody,

i have created a page where i collect blog posts from different spaces. In this page i had added some users as watchers. The problem is that when a new blog post is created the page doesn't update. Do you have any idea how to add a functionality that sends an email to the watchers of the page when macro finds a new blog post?

Thanks,

Tsol

I wouldn't do this with a macro, because macros are only executed on page view. So the notifications wouldn't be sent until some user visits that page. You could write your own plugin with an EventListener Module, that listens to the BlogPostCreateEvent.

A simpler solution would be to tell them to start watching the space blogs: Browse => Advanced => Subscribe => Start watching space blogs

Hope this helps
