How to change comment notification settings in WordPress

This article describes how to change the WordPress e-mail notification settings for comments and comment moderation.

About comment notification settings

By default, WordPress sends you an e-mail message whenever either of the following events occurs:

  • Someone posts a comment.
  • A comment awaits moderation.

These notifications can be helpful, but if your WordPress site receives a lot of comments, they can also be annoying and fill up your inbox.

Changing comment notification settings

To change the comment notification settings in WordPress, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to WordPress as the administrator.
  2. In the left pane of the dashboard, click Settings, and then click Discussion.
  3. In the E-mail me whenever section:
    • To receive an e-mail message every time someone posts a comment, select the Anyone posts a comment check box. To disable this feature, clear the check box.
    • To receive an e-mail message every time a comment awaits moderation, select the A comment is held for moderation check box. To disable this feature, clear the check box.
  4. Click Save Changes.
