Receiving email alerts when moderation is requested?

    Is there a way to receive an email alert when someone has posted a comment that requires your moderation approval? I just logged on to find out that someone’s comment had not shown up yet because it needed my approval first. I’d like to be alerted to this, instead of having to constantly log on to see if someone has left a post.
    Any suggestions are appreciated!



    Provided you mark the options correctly you will get an email moderation notification. The setting are found here -> Options -> Discussion
    scroll down and complete the appropriate fields then click “Update Options” to save.
    E-mail me whenever:
    * Anyone posts a comment
    * A comment is held for moderation

    Before a comment appears:
    * An administrator must always approve the comment
    * Comment author must fill out name and e-mail
    * Comment author must have a previously approved comment



    Thanks so much for the reply – turns out, the webmistress here at work had to expand my account in order to give me access to these Options, which were not available to me beforehand.



    Ahhh … well I’m happy to hear that you have resolved this. Happy blogging. :)
