    I know there is a forum post or blog somewhere that shows how to add notification functionality to the blogs module for when someone adds a blog comment that needs to be authorized/accepted...

    Could someone point me to the right place for this? Please...

    Hi Duncan Evans,

    If you want to add notification for a blog post - when someone submits a new comment to a post, you should create a custom class that inherits from CommentsList. Then find the submit button with ID="submitBtn" and subscribe for Command event. Inside this event we create the comment, so you can get its text and ID and send an notification.

    I hope this helps.

    Is there any out-of-the-box feature that sends an email automatically when someone just post a comment ? this is a very important feature & i don't know how come it does not exist.

    Hello DashSoft,

    The current build of the last release does not support this feature and it should be implemented as suggested in the previous post. We are working on built in notifications for Sitefinity 4.0.

    I'm coming late to this thread, but there are a couple blog posts that demonstrate how email notification can be enabled for new blog comments and page updates:
