I would like to start by saying that the upgrade process from 1.2 to 1.5 was absolutely nothing like i imagined. I allocated myself 3 hours to do it and i was finished in 10mins !. Ok, so i had to sort the templates etc… but the core installation was done !!!
very impressive indeed.
One issue i did have whilst running 1.2 was that i never got emailed when someone posted a comment. I do recall asking a question here and i think i got dismissed with “fixed in 1.3 etc…”
Well now i am using 1.5 and it still not working 🙁
Firstly some basic questions:
1. How does WP send you an email ?.. which email server does it use?
If its the one that you specify so that you can post via email, then i guess you have to specify a pop3 email address?… ie can you use an exchange address?
i found an article with some information but it was aimed at 1.2 …
I just want to be emailed when someone leaves a comment.
Can anyone provide the steps i need to take to achieve this?
i have updated my email address in the profile, and i have checked “email me when someone comments”
Searching the forums, i have also removed the “more” bit from functions.php .. which fixed it for some people.
Sheesh !.. thats a long post for one question 🙂
Any advise is appreciated.
