I am wanting to edit the content that is sent to admins in the comment moderation email notification. I have looked at multiple places and they all seem to give roughly the same example to achieve this, but it isn't working for me.

I am adding this to my functions.php file:

add_filter('comment_notification_text', 'my_comment_notification_text', 10, 2);

function my_comment_notification_text($notify_message, $comment_id) {

  return $notify_message . ' This is some extra text that I want to add';

The additional text isn't being added to the notification. What am I doing wrong?

Try using this hook instead: comment_moderation_text. The args are the same.

  • That worked! Thanks very much.
