Q&A Email notification to Admin


I had install the Q&A plugin, and all works fine, but when a user write a question the Admin don’t receive the email notification of a new question in the site.

Why I don’t receive notification about new question? I need to configure other options?

Thank you in advance for your precious support.

Best regards

    Hey there,

    This isn’t a feature of the plugin as far as I know, but would be quite a handy one I believe.

    Here is what you can do. Use the subscribe 2 plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/subscribe2/ and add this to your functions.php:

    function my_post_types($types) {
    $types[] = 'question';
    return $types;

    add_filter('s2_post_types', 'my_post_types');

    Source: http://subscribe2.wordpress.com/2011/02/28/subscribe2-and-custom-post-types/

    That should do the trick. Moving this in as a feature request.

    I think Arun misunderstood your question.

    This is already integrated in Q&A. An admin always receives an email in case of a new question and in fact, in this forum you can see several people complaining about getting too many (spam) emails for the submitted questions :slight_smile:

    If yours is a new website, just check if you can ever get an email by WP. For example create a new user and try to send his password to his email.

    thank you for your help, but the notification email still not arrive at me (admin).

    I configure the subscribe2 but nothing change.

    I see the Notification Settings on the bottom of the Q&A options, how this notification works?

    When an Admin answer a question, an email is send to the user that ask the question, I have to check always the page to find new questions?

    There isn’t another way to alert the admin for the new questions?

    Thanks again!

    Check if notification setting on your user page is checked. Please see attached screenshot.

    Regarding your above questions:

    – Users can be notified about all new questions using the above setting.

    – Users can also subscribe answers to a question by selecting the subscribe link.

    – Author of the question is automatically subscribed to the answers of the question he submitted.

    I hope this helps.
