Version 1.2.2 ⋅ ChangelogDocumentation


This add-on provides a number of new features for using custom fields in Better Notifications for WP.

New Custom Field Shortcodes

You can include data from custom fields in your:

  • Post Notifications
  • Page Notifications
  • Custom Post Type Notifications
  • New User Registration Notifications

You can use custom field shortcodes in both the subject and message body of your notifications.
It works great with ACF’s front-end forms too (acf_form). Shortcodes can be used in the From Name, Email, and Reply To fields (where customising these fields are supported by WordPress).

New Notifications

  • ‘Post’ Custom Field Updated – Trigger a notification when one or more custom fields are updated with any value.
  • ‘Post’ Custom Field Value Updated – Trigger a notification when a single custom field value changes to a specified value.
  • ‘Page’ Custom Field Updated
  • ‘Page’ Custom Field Value Updated
  • ‘Custom Post Type’ Custom Field Updated
  • ‘Custom Post Type’ Custom Field Value Updated
  • User Custom Field Updated
  • User Custom Field Value Updated


You can format the output of some custom fields using the ‘type’ and ‘format’ shortcode parameters.

Supported field types are:

  • Checkbox / Radio Button (essentially anything that outputs an array)
  • URL
  • Attachment
  • Timestamp
  • Date

More details can be found in the documentation here.

Supported Custom Field Plugins

The custom field plugins that are supported for posts, pages, or custom post types are:

Some parts of Toolset Types may work but it isn’t officially supported by this add-on.

Available Custom Fields

  • Text
  • Textarea
  • Number
  • Email
  • Password
  • WYSIWYG Editor
  • Image
  • File
  • Select
  • Checkbox
  • Radio Button
  • True / False
  • Taxonomy
  • Page Link
  • Color Picker

You’d like to update Editors when a custom textarea field called ‘Post Notes’ is updated, and you’d like to include the contents of that custom field along with the post title, content, and any information stored in other custom fields in that post in a notification. With this add-on, that’s easy.


For more information, I recommend that you look through the full documentation to ensure that this add-on will meet your requirements, prior to purchasing.
