Ability to include attachments to emails in Customer Area Notifications

      I have made some really basic changes to the notifications-maler-helper.class.php file that allows me to add attachments to emails, however I’d like this to possible be made a part of the actual plugin so I don’t have to re-implement this every time I perform an update.

      The changes are as follows:

      notifications-mailer-helper.class.php, line 114:
      $this->send_email($from_name, $from_address, $to_name, $to_address, $email_subject, $email_body, $email_format, $post_id); // ADDED $post_id

      notifications-mailer-helper.class.php line 156:
      /* Create an empty attachments array that can be modified via external plugins */
      $mail_attachments = Array(); // Create an empty attachments array
      $mail_attachments = apply_filters(‘cuar/notifications/attachments’, $mail_attachments, $this->plugin, $post_id, $to_name, $to_address, $subject, $body, $headers);

      @wp_mail($to, $subject, $body, $headers, $mail_attachments); // ADDED $mail_attachments

      What this then allows me to do, in functions.php is create the following filter to attach relevant files:

      add_filter(‘cuar/notifications/attachments’, ‘attachFilesToEmail’, 10, 8);
      function attachFilesToEmail($mail_attachments, $plugin, $post_id, $to_name, $to_address, $subject, $body, $headers)
          // Check that the send attachment checkbox was checked
              $pf_addon = $plugin->get_addon(‘private-files’);
              $po_addon = $plugin->get_addon(‘post-owner’);
              $att = $pf_addon->get_attached_files($post_id);
               foreach ($att as $attachment) {
                   $file_path = $po_addon->get_private_file_path($attachment[‘file’], $post_id, false);
                   array_push($mail_attachments, $file_path);
      If you could please confirm whether or not this will be adopted in a future release, that would be appreciated

      Yes, we could perfectly do that indeed.

      I will add this so that you get the same filter in the next addon update.

      Actually I have done it slightly differently. Here is what I have modified:

       // customer-area-notifications/src/php/helpers/notifications-mailer-helper.class.php
      // LINE 113
              // Gather attachments
              $attachments = apply_filters(
              // Send the email
                  $from_name, $from_address, $to_name, $to_address, $email_subject, $email_body, $email_format, $attachments
      // LINE 145
          public function send_email($from_name, $from_address, $to_name, $to_address, $subject, $body, $format, $attachments)
      // LINE 170
              @wp_mail($to, $subject, $body, $headers, $attachments);

      You can write the code I have given and adapt your own hook in order to be compatible with the next release.

      Hi Vincent,

      Thank you for the update, when the next release comes out I will be sure to adapt my code to suit the changes you have made

      We don’t know when we’ll release the next version, yet. Consider applying Vincent’s changes to our plugin files so you won’t need to do anything more when the update will come out.
