Hello,

We have many authors on our site, some get just a few comments and others get thousands!

We would like a method to allow a post author to subscribe to their own posts by checking a box in the post editor before it is published. This way, if a post author wants to be notified of comments for a specific article they can check the box to subscribe.

Is that possible?

Thanks,

Kim

Hi Astghik,

Yes, I know that is the official solution.

  1. That turns the option on for ALL authors, not individual authors
  2. We're looking for a way for an Author to click a button to subscribe article by article
  3. Or worst case scenario an option to turn that on/off per author.

The way it's setup now fills the inbox of a couple of our authors to the point they can't use their email program.

Thanks,

Kim

So, I guess no comment in a week means that this isn't on the horizon anywhere?

@pixual,

Sorry for the late response.

As far as I know, if the option is turned on WordPress also sends an email notification to the current post author about new comments.

We're looking for a way for an Author to click a button to subscribe article by article

wpDiscuz has "Subscribe to all comments of this post" option, so the post author can easily subscribe to the current article. Please read this doc:
