Global Override Add-on


This add-on allows you to override some of the settings of notifications directly when editing a post, page, or custom post type. You can:

  • Choose whether you’d like to override an enabled notification or a disabled notification on a per post / page / custom post type basis.
  • Choose whether to enable or disable that notification on a per post / page / custom post type basis.
  • Override the Users / User Roles that you want the notification(s) of the post / page / custom post type that you’re editing to be sent to.


  • The new Notification Override meta box

    The new Notification Override meta box

  • The new column showing which notifications are overridden

    The new column showing which notifications are overridden


You have a notification set-up to alert the ‘Editor’ user role when new posts are published but you’re writing a new post and you realise that you don’t need to notify them of this particular new post but you would like to notify another user instead. With this add-on, doing this is easy.

This add-on also works with all other BNFW add-ons, so if you also have the Custom Fields add-on installed, you’ll see new options allowing you to override any custom field notifications that you may have set-up too.


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.


Still have a question? Ask me a pre-sales question here and i’ll gladly help.

  • Global Override add-on works fine.

    This is a useful add-on to BNFW: allows a notification that is either set to “enabled” or “disabled” to be changed to the opposite on the fly within the post/page editing or new page/post entry screen. The developer fixed a multisite-related bug quickly and I have tried it with perfect success.

    As with most (?) paid upgrades to plug-ins, I do find the pricing system difficult for multisite set-ups, since, as in my case, these are basically just parts of a single site, structured to permit different “membership” for each section (“site”). This problem of course is not special to the BNFW plug-in add-ons, but it is a convention that unfortunately limits its usefulness.
