Need option to disable email notifications entirely

I'm getting bombarded with emails while the client adds content to the site. I need to be able to turn off all email notifications easily, but there does not seem to be a way to do this. It assumes emails should be sent to someone at all times, which isn't always a necessity.

Also, Wyvern should work fine with BW... could you add it to the supported list? ;)

    Hi Brian,

    We're looking at evolving the notifications for the next stage of development, so we'll make sure we add the option of disabling them completely. Also, I'll add Wyvern now :)

    Hi Brian,

    To follow up, we are adding this option very soon.

    In the short term you could comment out line 364 of libraries/ep_status_transition.php or build a super simple extension which registers the bwf_notify_users hook and get your method to return false.

    See the extensions hooks notes here:

    Thanks for the follow up and addition of Wyvern to the list.

    To get around the notifications for now I just created a new member group that no one was assigned to and set the notifications to that group instead.

    Doh, can't believe I didn't think of that - a much easier solution.
