Web Notification

TIP Tip: Instead of subscribing here, it is easier to "watch" topics of interest. Watching topics gives you the choice of immediate notification or digest notification.

This is a subscription service to be automatically notified by e-mail when topics change in this Codev web. This is a convenient service, so you do not have to come back and check all the time if something has changed. To subscribe, please add a bullet with your WikiName in alphabetical order to this list. When you save this page please use "Quiet Save" to avoid alerting the rest of the TWiki community of the fact that this page has changed.

Note: It is recommended to subscribe also to the TWikiDevMailingList, which is mainly used for CVS change notifications. TWikiIRC is also used for discussion.

Note: Consider also subscribing to WebNotify (for TWiki users), WebNotify (for TWiki documentation), WebNotify (for TWiki Plugins repository), WebNotify (for questions TWiki users have).

Note: Occasionally you may get notification that a page has changed but you will find no changes, not even an increase in the revision number. The most likely cause for this is that someone has made a change and then, within one hour of the original change, has edited again and reverted the changes (restored the document to its condition prior to the first changes). For other possible causes of this or slight variations, see ChangeNotificationWithNoObviousChanges.

Comments on this topic

NEW TWiki now supports WebNotify entries that just include the user's WikiName, or the WikiName of a TWiki user group. There is no need to include the email address of each user, as TWiki's mailnotify script now picks this up from the user's home page. Multiple email addresses per home page are supported and will all be notified. Specify your email address using the old format to override this behavior. For example, here are some entries for a user and a group:

    * Main.FredBloggs     * Main.EngineeringGroup 

IDEA! This simplifies email address updates when a user is in many WebNotify pages, as well as allowing use of TWiki user groups to notify a whole group with one entry. [You can try this right now on TWiki.org WebNotify pages, or on your own TWiki by testing out the TWikiAlphaRelease.]

IDEA! OmittingEmailInWebNotify is now implemented at TWiki.org and in TWikiAlphaRelease - so you can delete your email address from this page, as long as you've specified an email address (or addresses) in your home page in the Main web.

Please comment here (or in WebNotifyDocs) on the new doc text at the top of this page - once people are happy with it, I'll clone it into WebNotify etc, and presumably all the other webs installed by default. The doc text is now a bit long - might be good to split most of this out into a separate page.

I would send email notification by using webNotify on any update in one of blogs. However, in notification, BlogEnryX or BlogCommentX are listed there instead of headlines. Those will make reader confused to judge the exact info they have concerns. In code level, I find "mailnotify.tmpl" but change on the file will influence other webs. This is an urgent request.

More specific questions:

  1. Can I get blog headline info by URL?
  2. How to get blog headline info directly on code,I noticed "CITEBLOG" on front-end.
