Comment Moderation E-mail only to Author

Send comment moderation notifications ONLY to the Author, not to the site Administration address any more.

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. Open an incognito browser window, go to your site as an anonymous visitor and post a comment to a post from anyone with at least author level (contributor has no moderation rights!) other than the main site administrator.
  3. Switch back to your normal browser window, verify that comment went into the moderation queue, verify that you as site administrator did not receive any moderation e-mail and then ask the post author if he/she did receive the moderation notification correctly :)

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 nobody 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, it was made for Multisite :)

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