Frequently Asked Questions

Is it active right away?
Yes, after activating you can go to the settings page and disable or enable the notification e-mails that suits you.

Can I use this plugin for multi-site?
Yes! starting from version 1.8.0 multi-site is supported.

Disabling user notifications does not work

Some other plugins also use their custom notifications which overwrite the core notifications of WordPress. To be sure, please first try the plugin without other plugins installed or at least temporarily disable them.
