Notifying changes to Comcode Pages content

#111190 (In Topic #22327)



I'd like to be able to send users auto-generated notifications of any changes to site or forums rules pages. These are, of course, Comcode Pages - for which content-type no option is listed in users' Profile ► Notifications settings  form. Please would anyone be able to help me with two questions?

1. Is there a notifications type for Comcode pages, and if so, what is its associated notification_code? (I can't track down a list of valid notification codes in the documentation, unfortunately.)

2. Besides including in the these pages' source HTML the form elements for enabling/disabling notifications (and "Monitor/Unmonitor" button), what other steps would I need to take in principle to achieve this functionality?

My thanks in anticipation!

There's no automatic way to really do that I'm afraid. Best you could do is put a comment block on the page, get people to setup a monitor on that, then post an "updated" comment on there each time.

Staff can monitor action-log entries too, but not users - and that's not per-content-item.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

Many thanks, Chris, with my apologies for being unable to reply sooner!

Your suggestion had crossed my own mind too as a possible means - now, obviously, it's my sole straightforward option. Of course, it does the necessary job without a hitch.

Best regards,
