Notification Settings

Back to User Guides

The CM Download Manager provides admins with the option to send a notification every time a download is added or when a new question or comment to a question is posted in the Support Thread.

The admin can also decide which users should receive notifications in these given scenarios.

Moderation

Admin Notification

The first email is meant to be sent to the admin. It's only sent if downloads require moderation (are not automatically approved).

It's triggered every time a user uploads a file, so the admin can moderate it.

You can configure:

  • Email address (you can add more than one address)
  • Message subject. 
    • Accepts the shortcodes
      • [blogname] - name of the blog
      • [title] - new download title
      • [link] - link to download page
      • [author] - uploader name
  • Message body content. 
    • Accepts the same shortcodes and also
      • [moderate_link] - link to moderation

User Notification

You can also enable the option  Send notification to user about admin's action

Within it, you can set

  • Message subject
    • Accepts the shortcodes
      • [blogname] - name of the blog
      • [title] - new download title
      • [link] - link to download page
      • [author] - uploader name
      • [action] - text: approved or rejected (change in Labels tab)
  • Message body content
    • Accepts the same shortcodes

New Download Notification

To adjust the notification settings, first navigate to the Notifications tab under the plugins settings.

Under the New Download section, the admin can create the email template for notifications about new downloads using our supported shortcodes.

Here are several examples of shortcodes that you can use to customize an email message’s content:

New Download Email Notification Shortcodes:

  • [blogname] - name of the blog
  • [title] - new download title
  • [link] - link to download page
  • [author] - uploader name

Who Will Receive Email Notifications?

The admin can choose who will receive email notifications about new downloads. If the new download has access restricted to chosen groups, chosen users, or if the download's category has restricted access to some groups, then you can notify these users about the new download.

Choose Groups' members if you want to notify the restricted groups members. Choose Users assigned directly to notify users assigned directly to downloads:

The admin can enable category following. If enabled, the "Follow" button will be added to each category and users will be able to click the button to follow new uploads.

Support Forum Notifications

This setting allows you to define the title and structure of the email sent to admins when a new support topic is created in the CM Download Manager forum or when a new comment is added to the forum.

You can use several supported shortcodes to customize the content of the notification emails. The admin is the only user who receives these notifications.

Here are several examples of shortcodes that you can use to customize an email message’s content:

Support Thread Notification Email Shortcodes:

  • Download name: [addon_title]
  • Support topic title: [thread_title]
  • Link to support topic: [comment_link]
