Hi Support

Thanks for your help in advance.

We’re developing a site, and I’m a developer, and hopefully just need pointing in the right direction!

What we need is to send email notifications to the users of our site when a form is submitted.

It’s a single form, with 1 to ‘add’ and other to ‘edit’. The ‘post type’ the form is associated with has ‘Taxonomy’ of ‘Avon’. ‘Itchen’ and ‘Wylye’. The users will signup to receive email notifications from any or all of these ‘Taxonomy’.

An example:
1. User signs up to website and selects they want notifications for ‘Avon and Itchen’
2. Admin makes a new or edits an existing post using said form and selects ‘Avon’ ‘Taxonomy’
3. All users signed up to receive email notification from ‘Avon’ receive an email with the post content in

As mentioned above I just need pointing in the right direction.

Thanks

Hi Nathalie,

Thank you for getting in touch.

You will need to be looking on a subscription plugin in order to achieve this since its not something that can be done with our toolset plugins.

Please let me know if this helps.
Thanks,

Thanks Shane

Adding the subscribers part we can handle.

It's the part when the form is submitted, is there not 'hook' that is triggered after a form is submitted, and being able to access the Taxonomy in the hook?

Thanks

Hi Nathalie,

There is a hook that you can use .

This is the hook that we commonly use when we submit a post using our forms on the frontend.

Hi Nathalie,

Yes you can because the post ID is available from the hook.

So long as the post ID is available you can retrieve a posts taxonomy with the function below
