This screencast shows how to set up Rules to allow comment writers to be notified when replies are posted to their comments. It covers:

  • Adding a checkbox to the comment form, turning on or off reply notifications
  • Sending e-mails to the comment author when new comments are posted
  • Not sending e-mails when replying to own comments
  • Some words about checking “entity has field” on the correct entity
