Comments App: comment posted notification email

  • Hi

    I belivee this has been requested numerous times over the years and I'd like to add a big +1 to it.

    It would be great if a notification could be sent to an designated email address when a comment has been posted via the Comments app (preferably only legitimate ones that have made it through the spam filter).

    I have a couple of clients requesting this recently.

  • This is currently possible by using perch_forms at the same time.

    On the Perch comments form you can also post to the Perch forms addon so that when a comment gets submitted, it also posts the data to perch_forms where you can then set up an autoresponder in the form options to say a comment has been left and requires reviewing.

    So, on your comments form template, you would have...

    1. <perch:form id="comment" method="post" app="perch_comments perch_forms">
