Comment Moderation E-mail to Post Author

Allows the comment moderation notification to be sent ONLY to the post author and no longer to the site E-mail Address too.

I see no settings page

There is no settings page. The plugin will do only one thing : make comment moderation notifications go to the authors e-mail address, and no longer the site moderator address.

Nothing looks different. Is it working at all?

To test if it is working:

  1. Check your Settings > Discussion settings and make sure that (I) at E-mail me whenever at least A comment is held for moderation and (II) at Before a comment appears at least Comment author must have a previously approved comment are checked.
  2. Log out and clear your browser cookies & cache.
  3. As an anonymous visitor, post a comment to a post from anyone other than the main site owner.
  4. Log back in, verify that comment went into the moderation queue and then ask the author if he/she received a moderation notification about it :)

I get no messages

This plugin does not send any messages. It only changes the addressee of the comment moderation queue notifications that are sent by WordPress.

If you do not get any of these notifications, disable the plugin and test again. You will probably still not get any notifications and the problem lies with WordPress not being able to send emails via PHP. There are other plugins or tutorials about server configuration that can help you with that...

Does this plugin work on WPMU / WP3+ Multi Site mode?

Yep. You can install it in /plugins/ and activate it site-by-site or network wide. Or you can opload it to /mu-plugins/ for automatic (Must-use) inclusion.
