The “E-mail me whenever anyone posts a comment” means an e-mail goes to the ADMIN and also to the authors of every comment in the thread.
We need to adjust that setting so that *only* the Admin receives an e-mail whenever anyone posts a comment, but *not* the authors in that thread. We need members of the site to be able to comment without fear of being inundated with e-mail?
How to change that at the ADMIN level, please? Or, as a distant second choice, how can individual users modify their settings so they don’t get the e-mail?
Esmi, thank you. You have quoted one part of my message: “and also to the authors of every comment in the thread.” Is that one clause the functionality that is not a part of WordPress? If that’s what you mean, I am confused, because the WordPress documentation says that the “me” in “E-mail me every time someone posts a comment” means both admins and all authors in the specific discussion.
If what you mean is that splitting those–so that only the admin and not the authors get the e-mails–then I understand, and that is what needs to be fixed. Apparently, though, it is doing exactly what it is supposed to do based on the documentation, but I am trying to find a way to change that default setting of “me means admins plus authors.”
