  • What do you mean by similar nodes ? Based on what condition you are meaning it similar ?

You need to user RULES module to achieve this functionality. Drupal flag module has full integration with rules modules.

By creating a rule saying condition is "Node is flagged" add an action saying "Send email to author of node."

  • Hi, I want to send mail after comparing the values of new node to the node that has been flagged by the user e.g city, location, price. I tried to to it with Data comparison in rules but dont see relative token values for flagged node. Oct 5, 2012 at 6:18
