TO INSTALL

  1. Install and activate the extension in the usual way:

    a. Copy the autonotifications folder to the extension folder.

    b. Edit settings/override/site.ini.append.php

    c. Under [ExtensionSettings] add:

     ActiveExtensions[]=autonotifications
    

    d. Reload the autoload arrays

     bin/php/ezpgenerateautoloads.php
    

    e. Clear the cache:

     bin/php/ezcache.php --clear-all
    
  2. In the admin interface, create a workflow that contains this event:

  • Choose which object versions should cause the notifications to be set. Typically you will want only publishing a new user object to add notifications. Otherwise notifications will be added every time the user's profile is updated.

  • Select the user groups that will be affected

  • Select the subtree notifications that will be added to the users.

  1. Save the workflow.

  2. Typically you will want to bind the post-publish trigger to the workflow you've created. However, sometimes you want to add notifications when a user object is moved from one user group to another. If so, you should bind the workflow to the post-move trigger instead. You will need to activate this trigger in settings/override/workflow.ini.append.php:

     <?php /* #?ini charset="utf-8"?
    
     [OperationSettings]
     AvailableOperationList[]=content_move
    
     */ ?>
    
  3. Override the digest settings with your own settings in settings/override/autonotifications.ini.append.php

USAGE

If you want to add notifications to existing users (as if they had just registered) then after setting up the workflow run:

php extension/autonotifications/bin/php/update_existing_users.php
