  • This plugin looks like it might do that:

    thanks for comments!
    i tell you more info about my problem.

    at the moment, i’m using “Subscribe to Comments” plugin (i like it a lot. it is a very good plugin: when an user puts a comment, he can choose if he wants also info about new comments for that post) and each mail notification has:
    – author
    – comment text
    – link to a post of my blog
    – link to subscription manager

    i simply want to put in mail notification also another field where i want simply put a signature (simply some words, not a long text).
    so i ask you if it is possibile this notification:
    using another plugin?
    or editing a file of wordpress?

    i don’t know very well english, please help me in easy english.
    thanks 🙂

    I’d see if that plugin comes close then modify that.

    MichaelH, i think that it is possibkle to edit “Subscribe to Comments” plugin and so each mail notification has also a ” final text for signature”.

    but how i can edit it?
    do you kwnow it?

    please, can help me?


    Assuming the plugin is looks like you need to change the code around line 588 inside the function send_notifications().


    i read here
    and maybe also editing
    wp_notify_postauthor() in /wp-includes/pluggable.php
    is a solution.

    but maybe your solution is better because i use “Subscribe to Comments” plugin.
    i found
    function send_notifications() in /plugins/subscribe-to-comments.php file (plugin file).


    i’m using “Subscribe to Comments” plugin + italian translation
    so, i has 2 files:
    not only
    “subscribe-to-comments.php”, where you find function send_notifications()
    but also another file “”

    i think i must edit “” file.

    what do you think?

    Possible but I don’t believe you edit an .mo file. You will want to review Translating_WordPress.

    sorry for my later.

    i tried to edit function send_notifications() in /plugins/subscribe-to-comments.php file (plugin file), but i don’t undestand how i can put a new text signature (a signature always the same) in the final part of the notification mail

    here i copy the code:

    function send_notifications($cid) {
    global $wpdb;
    $cid = (int) $cid;
    $comment = $wpdb->get_row(“SELECT * FROM $wpdb->comments WHERE comment_ID=’$cid’ LIMIT 1”);
    $post = $wpdb->get_row(“SELECT * FROM $wpdb->posts WHERE ID=’$comment->comment_post_ID’ LIMIT 1”);

    if ($comment->comment_approved == ‘1’ && $comment->comment_type == ”) {
    // Comment has been approved and isn’t a trackback or a pingback, so we should send out notifications

    $message = sprintf(__(“There is a new comment on the post \”%s\””, ‘subscribe-to-comments’) . “. \n%s\n\n”, stripslashes($post->post_title), get_permalink($comment->comment_post_ID));
    $message .= sprintf(__(“Author: %s\n”, ‘subscribe-to-comments’), $comment->comment_author);
    $message .= __(“Comment:\n”, ‘subscribe-to-comments’) . stripslashes($comment->comment_content) . “\n\n”;
    $message .= __(“See all comments on this post here:\n”, ‘subscribe-to-comments’);
    $message .= get_permalink($comment->comment_post_ID) . “#comments\n\n”;
    //add link to manage comment notifications
    $message .= __(“To manage your subscriptions or to block all notifications from this site, click the link below:\n”, ‘subscribe-to-comments’);
    $message .= get_settings(‘siteurl’).”/wp-subscription-manager.php?email=[email]&key=[key]”;

    $subject = sprintf(__(‘New Comment On: %s’, ‘subscribe-to-comments’), stripslashes($post->post_title));

    how i must edit this code?

    I use:

    Which settings screen includes the emails to send.

    thanks Gangleri,

    but i prefer at the moment try to edit “Subscribe to Comments” plugin.

    i hope you can help me! 🙁

    please, can help me?


    Use FTP and copy your wordpress files from your host to your local computer then use and search the files for the existing text then that will tell you what file the existing text resides.


    but i know where there is the code!
    this is not a problem!
    i found the file!

    the problem is the i don’t know how i can edit the code to put a new text signature (a signature always the same) in the final part of the notification mail.

    i copied the code above.

    please can you help me?


    Just include another:

    $message .= __("\nThe signature I want to add\n", 'subscribe-to-comments');

    It won’t be localized (so you can use this too):

    $message .= ("\nThe signature I want to add\n");

    You must include it in the position you want it. Note that \n is a new line.
