Today I will share on how to enable email notification function to wordpress comment’s authors when their comments has a new reply. To my knowledge, this feature is not available on wordpress natively.

So you need to install a third party plugin or write a custom code yourself to add the email notification feature. You may find many plugins available on the wordpress plugin directory such as Send email only on Reply to My Comment and Comment Reply Email Notification.

I only need this simple feature and I could not found any plugins previously. Hence I wrote a custom functions and decided to share with you guys. 🙂

How to get started?

1.Open “functions.php” file in your theme directory. Please create one if there is none.
