This screencast shows how to set up Rules to allow node authors to – optionally – receive e-mail notifications when comments are posted to his or her content. It covers:

  • Adding a checkbox to user accounts, turning on or off comment notification
  • Sending e-mails to a node author when new comments are posted
  • Not sending e-mails to the author if he/she was the one writing the comment
