Problems with email notification to users and constant moderation of comments.

4.54K viewsGeneral

I’m very new to this so apologise if Qs seem trivial:

1) the email notification to each user when a new post or comment is made used doesn’t work..I really need this function. Help!

2) It seems as though each time a new post or comment is made, the administrator has to approve/moderate it.  This happens even if that user has had comments approved previously. How can I auto approve comments and posts made by users that have been previously approved?

Many thanks,



Disable moderation ? Why ? And what happens if we can’t disable it ?

  1. Notification is getting improved in 2.4
  2. You have to disable moderation in WordPress discussion setting.

Please don’t send “person X answered on Y” to the very same X person. Even if that person X is admin and supposed to be notified of all new activity.
