Immediate Notify Plugin

Please read TWiki:Codev.ConsolidateNotification and TWiki:Plugins.MailerContrib.

This is a plugin that allows users to be immediately notified when topics or webs are modified.

Syntax Rules

Once the plugin is installed, users can register for notification in the WebImmediateNotify topics by including their username as an entry in a list. In order to recieve notifications, they must also configure their desired notification method. Since SMTP and Jabber are currently the only available methods, this consists of:

  • Adding a line "      * Set IMMEDIATENOTIFYMETHOD = Jabber" (or "SMTP", respectively) to their topic.
  • Adding a line "Jabber: jabber_user@jabber_server.org" to their topic for notification per Jabber (no configuration is needed for SMTP).

ImmediateNotifyPlugin Global Settings

  • One line description, shown in the TextFormattingRules topic:
    • Set SHORTDESCRIPTION = Allows immediate notification of topic changes through SMTP or Jabber

  • Notification method configuration:
    • Set METHODS = SMTP
  • Jabber method configuration:

  • Debug plugin: (See output in data/debug.txt)
    • Set DEBUG = 0
