Disable WordPress Comment Notification Emails

wordpress comment notification email

As an administrator on various sites I was getting tired of receiving comment notification emails for websites.  According to the WordPress support page comment notification email, administrators receive comment notifications for all posts.  This was not sitting well with me and my email box was starting to fill up with spam approval notices!


WordPress Comment Notification Disabling Code

The following code shows you how to remove your email from all WordPress comment notifications.

Basically we utilize the filter comment_moderation_recipients and comment_notification_recipients to remove our administrator email address from the array of emails.

There is also a plugin called cbnet Multi Author Comment Notification which allows for most functionality in disabling WordPress comment notification emails.
