Comments to multiple email addresses (20 posts)

    At http://www.stealtheblinds.net I am the owner/admin, and I have two people who also have the rights to post. When someone comments on one of their posts, they get the email notification.

    Because I am in charge of spam, I need to get new comment notifications, too. I've tried using a semicolon and a comma to add both email addresses, but it doesn't work.

    Any ideas how to send new comment email notifications to more than one email address?

    Doh, now I remember I wasn't supposed to bump my own post

    Did you try putting each email address on a separate line? That sometimes works for multiple email addresses.

    It won't let me add another line in the user screen. Hitting enter just submits any changes.

    I would like to know how to do this too :)

    I am the owner/admin for http://www.terralux.org. We have just converted our website to a weblog and are introducing many new Writers, at Level 2. My concern is the same as the person who initiated this stream. I love WordPress and since I am very new to blogging, I am learning almost minute by minute. I would really like to receive notification emails, in addition to the Writer who posted. Please find a way, dear creators of WordPress.

    I still cannot figure it out.

    One solution our webmaster thought of is to log out as the Admin, go to the article, make a comment and then click the Subscribe button. After that, you will receive notification of any comment posted after yours. I have done this with all the articles posted by our writers and it works beautifully!

    Since the lack of response leads me to believe this isn't possible, can this be a feature request? Thanks!

    Why not defining two new email forwarders at your control panel for those guys which will forward the mail to as many as email addresses you want?

    You mean within my domain control panel? Wouldn't that result in my getting several copies of emails when he leaves a comment on my post?

    It just seems like this should be a function within WP. If I knew how it sent the comment emails, perhaps I could format the email addresses so it properly recognizes them. But, WP doesn't appear to pay attention to a comma or a semi colon to signify multiple email addresses.

    I need this functionality, too. I want to be able to have several people screen all comments and get notified/approve other's posts on one blog. I think the administrator should be able to delegate maintenance tasks so you can keep the blog running while you are unavailable to moderate.

Setting up a special admin email acccount that's forwarded to several people is a partial solution but not a good one for those with limited domain control.

    Has this feature been implemented in a plugin yet? I too am a WordPress site creator/administrator, but I don't actually contribute to the blog, therefore I do not want to receive comment notifications or be in charge of moderating comments. How can I allow the blog authors to moderate the comments on their own posts, short of putting them all in the Administrator group, and having all comments go to all of them.
