    • When running db updates, queued notifications will be deleted.
    • This version will work with 4.x versions of Messaging, related modules tagged as 4.x, and not yet with Organic Groups

    Compatibility: For using with OG <= 6.x-1.1 you need to use the 6.x-1.0 release of Notifications. OG 6.x-1.2 and 1.3 will work with Notifications 6.x-1.1. For newer versions use the latest (either rc, beta or dev) of both.
  • Mail Comment allows posting replies to notifications by email.
  • Team Notifications provides an UI for subscribing other members of your team.


  • Immediate or digested notifications, allowing multiple digest formats for deferred notifications. Digests are configurable and themeable.
  • By using the Messaging Framework, notifications are not limited to email. Other methods like SMS or XMPP can be used.
  • Pluggable subscription and event types. Currently included: Content subscriptions (thread or node, author, content type), Taxonomy
  • Event and message queueing, fully scalable and configurable. Uses token module for message composition and text replacement, thus it supports pluggable tokens
  • Pluggable and fully configurable user interface. A UI module is provided but it can be disabled and replaced by a custom UI module.
  • Configurable per content type. You can have different types of subscriptions and a different UI for each content type

Dependencies / Requirements:

  • Token
  • Messaging Framework

    The development of this module is done in sync with Messaging Framework, thus latest stable version of Notifications will work with latest stable of Messaging, and same for dev versions.
