Better E-mail Notifications with Clean Notifications


As we all know, the default WordPress notification e-mails, sent out for things such as comments, trackbacks, and new users, aren’t the cleanest e-mails we’ve ever received. They’re complete with the author’s name, e-mail, website, and even IP address, all listed on their own lines. And when you’re running a popular blog with lots of comments and trackbacks, it can get quite annoying to sift through all the information, especially when reading these messages on a mobile device.

Thankfully, Mike Davidson, author of the handy text replacement tool, sIFR, has created a plugin to clean up these e-mails. The aptly named Clean Notifications plugin cleans up those notification e-mails into a cleaner, to-the-point notification in your inbox.

  1. This is a great idea for a plugin! I haven’t received any comments since activating, so I don’t know if it’s working properly. But upon activation I received this error:

    Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/jaledwit/public_html/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/show-me-options/show-me-options.php on line 161

    I don’t really know if it’s anything to worry about.
