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

4.12K 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,


  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.


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