    Emailing Page Creator

    Im using this Project for a Knowledge-base writers can submit how-to's to the site. I can use the email function to send to one person but would like it to send to the creator of the article. I can capture the users email address but not sure how i can pass that to the Pagereview.config file?

    Any suggestions?

    Kevin,

    Been a while since i wrote this, but you will need to make modifications in the http handler and then find author you which I am assuming you have set as a property on the document and then send them email. Also currently the page review is for all content with review date field and I guess you want to do it per piece of content per author?

    As a bit of background information, is this knowledge base an extranet so you have registered users who login to website NOT Umbraco and create articles?

    Regards

    Ismail

    Hi Ismail

    Package for the Knowledge Database http://our.umbraco.org/projects/collaboration/uknowledgebase

    I.T will login and have access to Umbraco back-end and create and maintain the articles. Your package is being used to make sure articles are updated by authors of the articles. Looking at levels of access end user or internal I.T user access to articles.

    In addition to that will be adding in Active Directory integration so single sign on to Umbraco... although that is a minefield I have yet to cross!

    Back to the question

    I have created a Owner Field Email address in the article template which id like to pass through to:

    <EmailRecipient>**OWNER FIELD EMAIL**</EmailRecipient>
    

    C:\inetpub\wwwroot\KnowledgeBase\Config\PageReview.config

    I'm not a developer I'm a web admin with a some understanding of how this should all work and think the above method might work??

    Kevin,

    If IT are logging in and creating content then that implies they are the authors then all you need to do is in the EmailRecipient field put in csv list of email addresses of all the authors, they will all then get the email.

    that's not very dynamic, user details are logged against each article surely it would make more sense to let umbraco populate so that it wont get out of date?

    You will have to modify the code notably the http handler and tell it to use a field on the document for email receipient it wont do it out of the box.
