Don't Send Notifications on Pending Posts?

This discussion is related to the EMailSubscribe addon.


I'm currently using the Post Approval plugin, which requires a post to be approved by a moderator before it is visible to others.

I currently have an issue where users are receive email notifications about 'pending' posts. When I took a look at the discussion table, it has a column marked 'Hidden', which I believe corresponds to whether or not a post is pending.

Would you be able to provide a little direction as to where I should look to add this 'check'?

    Both plugins use the event handler PostController_AfterDiscussionSave_Handler. As such, we can't guarantee these handlers will be fired in a specific order (it should call them in alphabetical order based on the plugin name, IIRC).

    I suggest adding a check in the EMailSubscribe plugin to see if the PostApproval plugin is enabled. Adding something like the following after line 55 of /plugins/EMailSubscribe/default.php might work:

    if (Gdn::PluginManager()->CheckPlugin('PostApproval')) return;
