    I no longer receive an email notification when a comment occurs. Is there a way to get it to email me when there is a comment?

    Make sure that you are using the version 1.3.2 , if im not mistaken the version 1.0 and 1.1 were using a function that I had built in to create the comments so that could lead to a problem like this one you telling, since then the plugin uses wordpress built in functions to create comments.

    That means if you don't receive the e-mail is not the plugin that sends the e-mail but wordpress itself ;)

    There is 3 things that might be hapenning so

    First check in your wordpress configuration in the page

    wp-admin/options-discussion.php

    There is a option about e-mailing that have 2 checkboxes, one to send an e-mail when someone publishs a comment and other to send an e-mail if theres a comment with pending approval, make sure both are checked.

    Second, check the spam folder, already hapenned sometimes to me that my e-mail system ended up sending all my wordpress e-mails directly to spam.

    Third that could be some server slowness, I use a cloud server on rackspace for my site and sometimes e-mails takes like 6 or 7 hours to arrive after they were send from the site, so if you are using a shared host, for example, could happen of the e-mail not even being delivered sometimes.

    Nope, not really sure what to do. I've tried multiple email addresses, checked spam and everything

    In seofacebook.php, line 546, the author is using wp_insert_comment() when he should be using wp_new_comment(). The latter triggers a notification to the post author.

    I'm using version 1.4.5.1 and changing the function enabled notifications for me!

    Hi, zschuessler your solution also worked for me, however I'm noticing that emails are only going to the actual author of the posts and not to the admin (me).. any suggestions? Thanks :)
