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.

New Download Notification

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

Under the 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 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]
