The blog implementation offers a two kind of notifications:
notify via e-mail a blog owner when a comment is posted; or one
could subscribe to receive blog posts via e-mail. Both
notifications are disabled by default and can be turned on using
Weblog UI. When this flag is on a scheduled job will send e-mail to
the blogger for every new comment posted to the given blog.
The blog owner notification can be turned on as setting
BI_COMMENTS_NOTIFY to 1 in table SYS_BLOG_INFO for corresponding
blog entry. Other way is to use Weblog settings UI.
If blog owner decide, can define a notification route. To do
that he can add a routing job of type SMTP to the routing table.
See "Blog Upstreaming" discussed earlier in this chapter how to do
that. Also it's possible via Weblog settings UI to add such route
via "Notification" link. Note that when define such route , better
practice is to designate a category which to be considered as for
Once such routing job is defined for given blog, users can
subscribe and therefore receive e-mails for posts which blogger
assign to a category for notification.
