Blog - Movable Type NotifyReplyee plugin

Technology Movable Type NotifyReplyee plugin

In Movable Type 4, there's a new way to easily reply to user comments by using the "Reply" links in comment listings in the content manager, or the "Reply to this comment" link when editing a comment. Doing so shows a dialog where the author can write their reply.

This plugin, NotifyReplyee, allows automatically sending an email to the person being replied to ("replyee"). The "Reply" dialog shows an "email notification" option which sends an email when checked. This can be useful when replying to someone who might not be likely to check back (e.g. a one-time visitor or your aunt maybe?).

The reply comment's text can optionally be included in the email.

It doesn't work on my blog (MTOS 4.2).
Is there something need to change on mt4.2 ?

Sorry, this plugin hasn't yet been tested with MT 4.2 (only MT 4.1). I am sorry if it doesn't currently work with that version.

Oh, you needn't say sorry to me. I just love your plugin so much -- look, you replied and I come back, it's cool.
I even want to degrade MT to 4.1 now. Haw-haw.

I would love for this to work on 4.2, do you have any update plans in the works?

Thanks for your interest!

Have you given it a try? It "might" perhaps work.

I have yet to upgrade my own blog to the latest MT version, so I haven't yet been able to test the plugin on 4.2.
