I have custom post type "Art masters". Each post is master's profile.

In their profiles isset custom fiels name "master_email". I need to send for master email notification every time if new comment is posted.

How i can call post new comment function for use wp_mail? Thank you for help!


You can try something like this in your functions.php

function send_comment_email_notification( $comment_ID, $commentdata ) {
    $comment = get_comment( $comment_id );
    $postid = $comment->comment_post_ID;
    $master_email = get_post_meta( $postid, 'master_email', true);
    if( isset( $master_email ) && is_email( $master_email ) ) {
        $message = 'New comment on <a href="' . get_permalink( $postid ) . '">' .  get_the_title( $postid ) . '</a>';
        add_filter( 'wp_mail_content_type', create_function( '', 'return "text/html";' ) );
        wp_mail( $master_email, 'New Comment', $message );
add_action( 'comment_post', 'send_comment_email_notification', 11, 2 );
  • That's OK but 2 things need to be pointed out: 1. get_comment( $comment_id ) should be get_comment( $comment_ID ) 2. in order for this function to work, post meta (custom field) should have name - value pair declared: master_email - somebody@somedomain.com – Dameer Mar 27 '13 at 7:35

You can try this. Example:helenyhou@example.com


function yoursite_wp_mail_from($content_type) {
   return 'helenyhou@example.com'; 


function yoursite_wp_mail_from_name($name) {
   return 'Helen Hou-Sandi';
