This week, I introduced Drupal blogs to senior project students looking to publish weekly reports of their work to their project advisors and the school community. Drupal seems a little thin on email notification features. Comment Notify appears to only permit comment followup, and Subscriptions is known to be buggy. I installed Subscriptions — do you have first-hand experience with it? The similarly-named “Subscription” module seems dead.
Subscriptions installed and ran smoothly in my tests and seems to provide exactly the flexibility that I want for our users. Is this the best way to do this?
Update 10/25/08: We have been running Subscriptions for nine months now with no apparent ill effects. That said, we have not tracked whether it sends notifications every time that it should.
