Better blog comment announcements


I've been a little disappointed with Drupal's Subscription module I installed a few months back. It was clunky and not very intuitive.

So, this afternoon I whipped up a small module that should send you an email every time someone comments on your blog. Actually, I whipped it up twice since a wayward asterisk ended up nuking the first version along with the entire modules directory of the website; thank goodness for backups.



Does anyone know if there is a way to be alerted when someone comments on your blog? Or somewhere where recent activity is summarized so that you don't have to look at every one? Thanks!

Great idea! I second the motion that we have an alert for comments somewhere. Either when we log in something that says "New Blog Comments" or an email.

I think we have to talk to Ben about this. Hopefully he is reading blogs, but we may have to email him directly.

Peace, Rich

Hey Corey,

I'll check with Ben about the notification, but a better aggregation page is coming very soon, complete with latest comments as well.
