WEBFI-WordPress-How to Notify Users Only On Replies to Their WordPress Comments

Looking to improve user engagement by sending a notification to users only when someone replies to their WordPress comments? There is not a built-in method in WordPress for letting users know there is a reply to a comment on your site. In this video, we will show you how to notify users only on replies to their WordPress comments.

For this tutorial we will be using the Subscribe to Comments Reloaded plugin found here:

With that plugin installed and activated you would go to the StCR menu item that was added to your admin menu on the left of your site. Visit the Comment Form Section under the main StCR menu item.

Enable the Advanced subscription option and set the default to Replies to this comment to have it as the default behavior. Now when a user is adding a reply to one of your posts they have the option to receive emails when someone replies to theirs.

    Still untested on my current version of WP 4.9.8. Hasn't been updated for past 6 months? I'll pass on this one. Good plugin for those that can use it.

    Thank you for this!! Can you please show us how to allow users to upload their own content (such as music) to a website and make the content available to download for anyone? I'd very much appreciate it.

    @Wpbeginners I have a blog and people are subscribing with fake email addresses and I am receiving subscription email at 20 to 30 per day. Please give me advice how to get rid of it. Thanks

    Thank YOU. Just what I was looking for.

  • Denise Ihler on November 18, 2019

    Thank you! Question, at the end your drop down defaulted to "replies to my comment". Mine defaults to "Don't Subscribe". Is there a way to change that? I looked everywhere.

    Very useful, I wished I knew this before I got all of my comments. Is there a way to notify visitors afterward?
