Just released Comment Reply Email…another free WPJ plugin!
Commenters can receive email notifications of replies to their comments.
This simple plugin automatically sends a notification email to commenters when someone replies to their comment. This feature can be enabled automatically by the site admin, or through an opt-in/opt-out checkbox below comment section on frontend.
It’s best to use it with an email-sending plugin like WP Mail SMTP, and with SMTP or transactional email service like SendGrid or Mailgun. Sending from your server via PHPmailer can cause deliverability issues (email notfications caught in spam).
I loved the original plugin Comment Reply Notification (by @denishua) for its simplicity but it was abandoned and stopped working years ago. So I forked and revived it to work with the latest PHP and WordPress. I also improved some wording, removed unnecessary author links in the email notifications, and also keep it more updated. Credits to Denis who first hacked it 5 years ago, and later Walter for sanitizing, fixing string escapes and other PHP deprecation issues.
- The plugin is free for your personal/commercial use, but do buy me a beer if you like it. Enjoy! 🙂
- I’m not responsible for what you do with it. If you have issues, you can ask for support on the WP.org repo.
