I've been looking for a way to notify users when a post has been edited. I've tried the following plugins:

  • Better Notifications for WordPress
  • Post Status Notifier
  • Digest Notifications

(These were tried to generate E-Mails after posts been edited)

  • Edit Flow
  • PublishPress

(These were used to create custom status for posts under edit)

In the best case, I want to notify all colleagues that a post has been edited 24h after a post hasn't been edited.

Currently, I'm trying digest notification to notify all colleagues every day with the edited posts. The setup hasn't worked out so far.

  • I'm not seeing a question here. Have you worked with any of the plugin developers to see if they can help with your concerns?

  • I've contacted most of the developers, but only two started to respond without going into the issue itself.

i think this should help,


on 'save_post' hook, you can send your email. But it will only work on direct update.

if you want to wait 24h, you will have to set a cron job that will check every post & send an email with posts updated in the last XX hours.
