Seperating the Moderator Role from the Administrator Role?
How-To Posted by Mark Fassler on Saturday September 28, 07:01AM, 2002
from the adding-layers-to-the-beaurocracy dept.
Is it possible to seperate the Administrator and Moderator roles? Specifically, what I want to do is: whenever a new article gets posted (to be moderated), the notification email would go to a different email address(es) than the administrator. (There are other things I'd like to do, but I could make this solve most of my problems.)

    Well, what you could try doing is fiddling with the mail_html method until it sends the mail where you want it to go.

    cheers,

    Yes it is easily done. Here is what I have done.
    Requirements:
    1. You run your squshdot site and can add roles.
    2. You have access to adding email aliasing on the server that you use mailhost on.

    What you do:

    It is simple, create a new role. I called it approvers you can call it whatever. Grant them the rights to review (I do not remember exactly what they are at this time but it is listed in the FAQ here).

    Create an admin alias on the system that the mailhost is sending to. The alias can be setup with sendmail or other mail systems to redirect one ID to multiple people. So I have it going to an admin account .. lets call it squishadmin@mysite.com the
    squishadmin is aliased to three names, bob@aol, mary@somewhere.com, john@hell.com

    The alias looks like this:

    squishadmin: bob@aol.com, mary@somewhere.com, john@hell.com

    Then when mail is sent to squishadmin it atomatically is sent to as many people as you want.

    Good Luck!
