New WordPress plugin: Comment E-Mail Verification

Nils asked me whether I knew about a WordPress plugin that would verify a comment author’s e-mail address. I didn’t, so I wrote one myself.

The plugin is in its early stages, the current version number is 0.1 – you are welcome to test-drive it and watch it grow, or watch me procrastinate and forget about it over my day-job :/ if I do, go ahead and nag!

  1. hello :) just downloaded your plugin! sounds cool.. but I didnt receive any email when my comment held for moderation.. whats wrong?? :( I really want to use this plugin.

  2. Can you post a link to the blog you are using this on? You need to have WordPress 2.9 (and I will have the plugin check the WordPress version upon activation in a future version).

    Do you get other notification mail from that blog? Maybe wp_mail is not working in your setup altogether?

    You may also want to check the spam queue of your mail account.

    Thank you, by the way: your above comment was the first comment approved through my plugin on any of my blogs (other than test comments by Nils or myself).

  3. hehe. my blog is too pink & Girly so dont be shock. lol

    im using WP 2.9.1 and yes, I get other notificiation email like the default comment notification..

    what is wp_mail?!?! aww.. should I upload new plugin again?

    I really want to use this plugin :)

  4. I would have loved to check out your blog, but that site is dead. I get a “403 Forbidden” error.

  5. I bought a new domain check it back later! this new plugin is growing .. would love to try it!

  6. hello :) its me again!! :) your plugin is working great!!! (maybe because of my new host?)
    it sends to comment author right? I thought the admin is the only one who can receive the email… :(

  7. Yes, the plugin sends a message to the comment author, never to the admin. Having email sent to the admin is a WordPress core feature. — I will have the core options relevant to moderation and comment notification added to the settings screen in a future release…

    I’m happy things worked out for you, and yes: the new host may have been the trick. — There are a great number of things that can go wrong sending email from a PHP web application such as WordPress and I intend to add links to helpful articles to the contextual help… this is work in progress.

  8. Im looking forward for the future release!!(^O^)/ hehe.
    and yes its working great!!
