Email notification of reply to comment

    I’m the administrator of a blog for an online course. I’d like for my students to be able to get an email notice when someone replies directly to a comment they’ve made (since otherwise they might not realize someone’s replied to them, especially if the thread is a couple days old). They all have “author” status.

    Even if there’s no such option, is there a way for me as administrator to restrict my notices to when someone replies to one of my comments? I don’t want to get an email every time someone posts any comment whatsoever, but if it’s a reply to one of my comments, I’d like a notification.

    Hopefully what I’m looking for is clear enough. I’ve searched on the forums for this and haven’t seen any solutions, so I suspect it’s not possible, but here’s hoping! Thanks.

    Whoops! Just realized there’s a “notify me of follow-up comments by email” box to check when someone posts a comment. That’s easy enough. I’ll leave this us in case anyone else is as unobservant as I am :).
