hack for email notification to threaded comment au (8 posts)

    Nice development!
    I have a quick question though. Your submit comment script says that the emails submitted won't be seen by anyone, but I can see the email address of folks that have left comments in the link with their name as "mailto:some@one.com".
    So these email addresses are visible to the world at large, as such, isn't it?
    Another point - Maybe you could have a question
    "would you like to receive emails when replies are posted?" Yes/No
    so people can submit their email as always and then choose not to get an automated email when a comment is posted.
    And - would emails be sent to only when replies to the same comment are posted, or also when someone leaves a reply to a comment posted in response to the comment. (quite involved, but I hope you see what I mean.)
    :) I was just thinking about the lack of this email notify feature in threaded comments yesterday.
    Thanks, I will probably get it working soon.

    so i can't tell what you're talking about. the hack itself doesn't that that; just the comments post page on my site says that, because i hide the commenter's emails.
    also, the features suggested in the other post of this hack (screwed up special characters though, so i reposted here) would be awesome, but i don't have time to implement them. the person that suggested them has some great ideas and should definitely implement them!

    I got error on line 1514.
    I'm using 1.0.1 at the moment, should I upgrade to 1.0.2 first?

    2fargon - your comment about the email not being displayed is a"problem" with WP... if the commentor does not enter a URL, then their address gets turned into a mailto link instead of a link to their website. The way I'd like to see it done is to have a setting that allows me to force a name and address (at a minimum, with a web addr optional). Then when comments are displayed, if they supplied a URL link, then their name would get converted to a link, if they didn't then just display their name un-linked to anything.

    Thanks, TG, maybe this should be brought to the attention of the devs(I don't know if you are one :) )

    Nope, but I just started a thread requesting that the name be un-linked in the event that no URL was submitted. Seems to only make sense to me.

    fwiw, that's a good recommendation, i hope it gets implemented (along with threaded comments, replies like i have implemented, and a lot of other features that should have been in 1.0)...
