Subscription

It’s possible to send email notification only if user checked subscription checkbox. To enable this functionality you must add such code (e.g. in functions.php in the active theme):

add_filter('scn_enable_subscription', '__return_true');

Optionally, you can also change default checkbox value to true:

add_filter('scn_subscribe_value', '__return_true');

Autoresponder

Plugin have a hidden functionality that sends autoresponder to the author of the comment. To turn it on you must add such code (e.g. in functions.php in the active theme):

add_filter('scn_autoresponder_to_author', '__return_true');

Optionally, you can also turn off default plugin functionality:

add_filter('scn_notify_parent_author', '__return_false');

The title and content of the autoresponder can be personalized:

function custom_scn_autoresponder_subject($subject, $comment_object) {
	return $subject;
}
add_filter('scn_autoresponder_subject', 'custom_scn_autoresponder_subject', 10, 2);
function custom_scn_autoresponder_body($body, $comment_object) {
	return $body;
}
add_filter('scn_autoresponder_body', 'custom_scn_autoresponder_body', 10, 2);

You can even set who will not receive this notifications by changing minimum required user capabilities:

function custom_scn_autoresponder_cap() {
	return 'edit_posts';
}
add_filter('scn_autoresponder_cap', 'custom_scn_autoresponder_cap');

  1. I have my comments set up through Jetpack so that users can log in using WP, Twitter, or Facebook. So not every commenter leaves an email. Will this plug-in still work with those settings?
    Thanks so much.

  2. Great, thanks. I tested it with a Twitter log-in and it did work. When you’re updating, would it be possible to add an “unsubscribe to comment reply” option?

  3. Hi
    I’m trying to translate the email texts to Portuguese using Loco Translate plugin, but the changes are not been applied to the emails. My website has no cache plugins.
    Is there any settings I have to change in order to make it work?
    Thanks

    • Hello! Please use official WordPress translating tool or put your custom translations in the folder /wp-content/languages/plugins. Remember to properly add file name e.g. simple-comment-notification-pl_PL.po and simple-comment-notification-pl_PL.mo.
