Subscriptions

Subscriptions is a premium add-on for Better Notifications for WordPress. You can purchase it here.

This add-on allows a user to manage the BNFW notifications that they’re opted into via a series of checkboxes in their profile in the WordPress Admin, or via the front-end form which can be added to any page using a shortcode.

Settings

On installing this add-on, new settings become available under Notifications > Settings. These settings allow a site admin to set the initial subscription state for notifications – users are either opted in by default or opted out by default. This can easily be set for all users when the add-on is first installed however, after this, once a user has saved their subscription preferences for the first time, either by going to their profile in the WP Admin or via the front-end form, toggling this radio button will not change all user’s subscription preferences.

Shortcodes

The [user_subscription_page] shortcode can be added to a notification to allow a user to change their subscription preferences from the profile in the WP Admin.

Alternatively, if access to the WP Admin is blocked, you can add the [bnfw_user_subscriptions] shortcode to any page, to show a front-end version of this form and include a link to this in your notifications instead. It’s worth noting that this won’t output anything if the user isn’t logged in so it might be worth using a plugin, such as Members, in order to put this page behind a login prompt to ensure correct operation.

Notification Names

The title of each notification is used as the field label for each row in the subscriptions form.
