New Comment Function
Hey gang – I just wanted to let you know about some new functionality for comments on my blog. I think this new feature will make comments much easier for users to follow.
The new feature allows someone making a comment to have further comments to that same post e-mailed directly to them. For example, let’s say you make a derogatory comment on my post about Aquaman. Instead of having to remember to come back to my site to see if I wrote a scathing comment back, you can just opt to have any further comments e-mailed directly to you. Very handy!
I believe this will help to foster dialogue back and forth, rather than having to manually check for responses to your comments. Below is a screen shot showing you where you select to have follow-up comments sent to you via e-mail.
If you are running WordPress and are interested in this feature, it’s a plugin called “Subscribe to Comments“. It hasn’t been tested for WordPress 2.5 yet, but it definitely works on 2.3.1.
