The code snippet is a very simple piece, there's no validation and so on, but it's a proof of concept that works and you can build on it.

I wouldn't advise to use it outside of a development environment until you are 100% sure that all data has been sanitized. This is just an example to get you on the right track.
Plugin Name: Comment Notification
Version: 1.0
Description: Adds Notification to Comments
Author: Kysol

	/* Plugin Code */
		function comment_status_change( $id, $status )
			if ( $status == 'approve' )
				$comment = get_comment( $id );

				if ( $comment->comment_author_email )
						get_bloginfo( 'name' ) . ' - Comment Approved',
						'Your comment: "' . $comment->comment_content . '" has been approved.',

			return $id;

	/* Wordpress Hooks */
		add_action( 'wp_set_comment_status',	'comment_status_change', 100, 2 );

Open in new window

Personally I have no clue if it does send upon approval by default. If it doesn't you can use a hook:

Runs when the status of a comment changes. Action function arguments: comment ID, status string indicating the new status ("delete", "approve", "spam", "hold").


hope that helps.

do i have to add that code in wp_set_comment_status ??

another thing

like from word press admin section,

when i click on users post , there is a section call "Reply"

i thought, if i click on Reply, it will go to users inbox directly, but its does not, when i click on Reply and submit

its actually put my comments in the webstie rather then emailing to the users

so i want that as well..but dont know how

No you would have to write a plugin to fire off the add_action. I'll look into it now.
