WordPress: Since this (email notification for comments) feature went live we’ve had a bunch of feedback and it looks like following comments by default is not a good fit for a lot of bloggers (and their readers) after all.

We looked at a few different options, but for now we’ve just changed things back to how they were before. To follow a conversation, make sure you check the box when you post a comment.


So, I’ve restored the option under comments (which I disabled to stop the flood of emails you were all receiving) – if you want email notification of replies to your comments, just click the box (see below).

    If I say pretty please may I have a 2nd prize picture Chips? Please… huh? Pretty please?

      Absolutely not. First is first, second (or third or fourth or fifth or…..) is nowhere. It’s a tough life lesson, but one you, Dudette, have to learn.
      Oh, go on then:

    Wonderful news about the comment box. My office email address is my default and as if there was any doubt about the activity on this blog, you should see my email after two days off!

      Hey, take it easy, Dudette! You’re kicking up the dust in my face! Congrats on 2nd.

      /Hmmm! I’m going to try that ‘pretty please’ routine next time I miss out on a thread. I’ll wait until it’s not so fresh in CC’s mind./

    Rubio is currently giving a speech to the South Carolina Republican Party on C-SPAN. The guy is horrible. He is even bashing Harvard and Yale. I hope he is Willard’s running mate.

    Funny how WordPress reversed itself so quickly after being so certain that everyone would luv the new default. Good for them for responding to customer dissatisfaction.
