How to Notify Users Only On Replies to Their WordPress Comments

Looking to improve user engagement by sending a notification to users only when someone replies to their WordPress comments? There is not a built-in method in WordPress for letting users know there is a reply to a comment on your site. In this video, we will show you how to notify users only on replies to their WordPress comments.

For this tutorial we will be using the Subscribe to Comments Reloaded plugin found here:

With that plugin installed and activated you would go to the StCR menu item that was added to your admin menu on the left of your site. Visit the Comment Form Section under the main StCR menu item.

Enable the Advanced subscription option and set the default to Replies to this comment to have it as the default behavior. Now when a user is adding a reply to one of your posts they have the option to receive emails when someone replies to theirs.
