Comment Reply Plug-In

By Katie, 2:57 pm

I have to say, I feel much better about the commenting situation now that I’ve read all of your responses. Thank you for your assurances that you did indeed know that I wasn’t simply ignoring your comments. Also, turns out I wasn’t the only one to make the wrong assumption! ;-)

Many of you requested the name of the plug-in that I found that allows commenters to receive email notification when you reply. Here it is, my friends: Comment Reply Notification.

But don’t thank me; thank Christie, who kindly and quickly came to my rescue when I panicked and reached out to her for assistance. She rocks. 8-)

One more heads up: for the plug-in to work, you need to reply from your site, not from your blogging dashboard.

That’s all, folks! Enjoy the plug-in! :-D

Updated to Add: This plug-in is specifically for people running WordPress on their own site/server. I cannot speak for wordpress.com sites, blogger sites, etc. You can find information about installing a WordPress plug-in here.

  1. I’m reaaaaly dim – but how do you get to the plug-in? Like is it already in the dashboard somewhere or..? I’m not tech-savvy :P

      I just updated my post to indicate that the plug-in is only for those who run WordPress on their own server. I’m not sure if wordpress.com can do plug-ins or not…

  2. i may just have to switch to wordpress.. damn blogger lol

  3. Thanks for sharing this! I have been looking for a plugin like this for my site.

  4. I have often left comments to comments on my blog, but most people have not come back to check the comments. This plug-in sounds like a good thing. I’ll have to add it soon. Thanks to you and Christie for sharing.

  5. Thank you so much for this info!! I also made a similar realization a few days ago and was so bummed. I’ll definitely be downloading this! So thank you (and thanks to Christie!!)!

  7. [...] to some poking around this weekend and Katie’s help, I figured out a way to reply to your comments so the reply shows on the blog and you get an email [...]
