Using the MT-Notifier Queue

  • Make sure that mt-notifier-queue.cgi is executable on your server.
  • Both the system and blog queue must be on to send notifications via queue.
  • Once notifications are in the queue, you must create a cron job to send them:
  • cd MT_HOME/plugins/Notifier; ./mt-notifier-queue.cgi -limit=500
  • The pathname (in italic) is the full filesystem path to MT-Notifier.
  • The limit option (in bold) is the number of notifications to send.
  • Schedule the job as often as you would like, but don't run afoul of your host!
  • That's it. Now you can queue your notifications!
  • Prior to version 4.0.5 the queue instructions were slightly different.
  • cd MT_HOME/plugins/Notifier; ./mt-notifier.cgi queued 500
  • The pathname (in italic) is still the full filesystem path to MT-Notifier.
  • The script name is not mt-notifier-queue.cgi, but mt-notifier.cgi.
  • There is another parameter, queued, that tells the script the action to take.
  • The final option (500) is the number of notifications to send.
  • That's it. Everything else, including the notifications themselves, are the same!
