WordPress is the coolest CMS out there. Its free and you can find thousands of Plugins to use. But unfortunately, I wanted a Simple plugin which would give users an option to receive a notification via Email if someone replies to this person’s comment.
I have searched and searched but failed to find a plugin that can do this. The closest I got was the following plugin:
Subscribe To Comments Reloaded
But if someone chooses to receive email notification, then he will get a email every time a new comment is posted. This is not what I want.
I want to send an email notification only if someone clicks on the Reply button on Person A’s comment [assuming that this Person A has chosen to receive email notification] and then post a comment. Also, Only this one user, Person A, would get the email notification. No one else should get the email.
The plugin which I have mentioned above, it also has some other options. These options can make things a little complicated.
So I decided to solve this issue via building a Plugin but as I am not a Professional Programmer [I only know little bit about PHP, MySQL etc], therefore, I chose to make changes to the above mentioned plugin “Subscribe To Comments Reloaded”.
I was able to make this plugin Simple and made it do what I wanted.
So if you want to use a plugin which can give users the option to receive email alerts Only when someone replies to his comment, then this plugin will help.
Hopefully, you will be able to download this plugin from WordPress site, but for now, you can download from here: Send email only on Reply to My Comment
I will be updating this plugin regularly.
If you find any issue with the plugin, then please leave a Comment below…
