turn off comment notification for author comments (5 posts)

    Typepad, like WP, defaults to notifying the blog author of his own comments. Why is that? Why would anyone need to know that they wrote a comment in their own blog?

    Is there any way to turn this feature off for your own comments?

    Excellent question. I'd like to know the answer to this, too.

    Thanks, nickel

    Skippy did a quick and dirty plugin for this (which never worked for me but did for others).

    You can see if it's still available at http://www.skippy.net/.

    I looked here ( http://www.skippy.net/blog/plugins/ ) & didn't see anything that sounded like that. Perhaps he's removed it or it worked with earlier WP versions?

    Vkaryl: Skippy replied to my msg saying the Not-to-me plugin's not available on his site but available privately to those wanting it. However, he doesn't support it & won't be able to walk people through any problems (if they develop any) w. installation/functionality.

    If you want it follow the above link to his site & send him an e mail requesting it. If you have any problems I have a copy of the file (but I'd sorta like to let Skippy decide who uses his plugin since it's his & it's not really publicly available).

    I installed the file in my public_html/tikun_olam (the subdirectory housing my WP installation) folder & tested w. posting my own comment. Hours later & I still haven't received a notice. So it appears to be working. I just hope it doesn't turn off all comment notification!
