Kau-Boy's Comment Notification

Description

This plugin enables blog admins and editors to manage the notification of incoming comments. As WordPress only has the option to notify on every comment, the email account of the admin may recieve many email each day. Notification is also limited to the admin only, so only the admin user will receive an email for incoming comments.

Using the plugin you can subscribe to a RSS feed that contains even comments that has to be moderated. Every feed entry has the links to delete a comment, mark a comment as spam or approve a comment, if the comment has to be moderated. If a comment has been marked as spam, it will no longer appear in the feed.

A list of all of my plugins can be found on the WordPress Plugin page on my blog kau-boys.de.

FAQ

Who can subscribe to the comments feed?

You can set if only users who has the moderation permission to subscribe, or every user of the blog. Non moderation users will not see the moderation links and they will not see comments that has to be moderated.

Can I limit the number of mails that I receive for new comments?

This feature will be available in one of the next updates. But as digesting emails is more complex, I started with the feed option.
