Support » Fixing WordPress » Comment Author’s E-mail

  • I am using 1.2b, and was wondering how I get the comment authors’ e-mail addresses to show up when an e-mail is sent to me when they comment.
    e.g. – Joe comes to my site, and comments. He enters his e-mail address, but it is not displayed on the site – however, when that e-mail is sent to me, the from box is empty, so when I reply – there is no address in the to: box.
    Thoughts?

  • When the commenter leaves an email id, that is the reply-to address in the mail sent that contains the comment.

    Actually, it isn’t – it’s always blank.
    Under my comments section, WP says:

    Line and paragraph breaks automatic, e-mail address never displayed, HTML allowed…

    Sandman, this could be a “bug” then. Let me check on my beta blog.

    I got this mail when I posted a comment on my beta blog using the email address mail@2fargon.com
    The commenters address shows in two places, though not in the “from” field…

    From: "Carthik" <mail@2fargon.com>

    nothing much actually.
    You can see all comments on this post here:
    ">http://2fargon.com/beta/index.php?p=1#comments`
    I use Moz Thunderbird to check mail.

    Click on the mailto link in the comment email that you get. This follows the “Email: ” in the mail sent to you.

    Yeah, but why is it left out in the “Reply-to:” or simply “From:” part of the e-mail?
    It’s simply blank, and only started doing that with v1.2b.
    Perhaps it is a bug of some sort, or a feature I can disable?

    It could be improved the way you say it. Leave a comment in the beta testing thread so the devs can see it and fix it.
