This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

cbnet Multi Author Comment Notification


Easily enable email notification of new comments to users other than the post author.

Via Dashboard -> Settings -> Discussion, enable email notification to users by site admin, user role (Administrator, Editor, Author, Contributor, Subscriber ), or define arbitary email addresses to notify. Also, optionally disable email notification for comments left by registered users.

Email notification for individual users can be enabled via each user’s profile.


Manual installation:

  1. Upload the cbnet-multi-author-comment-notification folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory

Installation using „Add New Plugin“

  1. From your Admin UI (Dashboard), use the menu to select Plugins -> Add New
  2. Search for ‘cbnet Multi Author Comment Notification’
  3. Click the ‘Install’ button to open the plugin’s repository listing
  4. Click the ‘Install’ button

Activiation and Use

  1. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  2. From your Admin UI (Dashboard), use the menu to select Settings -> Discussion
  3. Configure settings, and save
  4. To enable comment notification for individual users, configure „Comment Email Notification“ on each user’s profile


No emails are being sent. Why?

The Plugin merely filters the list of email recipients; it does not send email. Be sure that you have enabled (checked) the „Email me whenever“ options for either „Anyone posts a comment“ or „A comment is held for moderation“. If neither of these options is enabled, no emails will be sent.

Where did settings go?

Plugin settings can be found under Dashboard -> Settings -> Discussion.

Comment email notification for individual users can be configured via the user profile.

Let me know what questions you have!

This plugin works exactly as I would have hoped, was a breeze to set up, has the ability to choose what „level“ of user gets notices, and the configuration form shows up under the „Discussion“ menu item – right where it should. Thanks for the perfect addition to my WP site!
