How to change comment notification settings in WordPress

In a default WordPress installation, the WordPress administrator receives an email every time a user leaves a comment or a comment is held for moderation. These settings are great for tracking and controlling comments, but can create a lot of email for popular sites. If you want to reduce the volume of notification emails, you can change the settings.

Changing the comment notification settings

Log in to your WordPress dashboard and go to SettingsDiscussion.

In the Email me whenever section, make one or both of the following changes:

  • Anyone posts a comment – Clear this check box to stop receiving an email notification whenever a user leaves a comment.
  • A comment is held for moderation – Clear this check box to stop receiving an email notification when a comment is held for moderation.

Click Save Changes.
