It’s 2am, Where Are Your Posts?
Have you ever read one of your old posts and thought something was different? Maybe a few words were changed, the formatting was different, or an entire paragraph was missing. You poured your heart and soul into the post and didn’t know someone changed it after you hit publish. If this sounds familiar, you probably have a multi-author blog.
Today we’re launching a feature called Email Post Changes to help blogs with multiple authors collaborate better on the same posts and pages. If you turn it on, we’ll instantly notify you by email whenever a change is made to a post on your site. You’ll recognize the format of the email is the same as post revisions, making it easy to see exactly what has changed.
More than 460,000 WordPress.com sites have multiple authors, with one site having 641 users, so we think this will be a great feature for a lot of you. We’ve been using the email notifications at Automattic for a while and hope it will be as useful for you as it has been for us. If you have an interesting usage, let us know in the comments.

The Email Post Changes plugin has been updated for self-hosted WordPress.org users.
