no notification for comments
I'm thinking this is a bug. Steve Brier reports that despite having clicked on notifications for comments he is not receiving emails about the comments on posts that have been made. He's using the new course template.
I was able to replicate this on my own course template - https://marilyncourse2.commons.gc.cuny.edu

Boone, I haven't heard back from him. He has a group for this class as well, but for mysterious reasons he didn't connect the group to the site. Can you make me an admin on the group so that I can do it? He's willing, but unresponsive to this particular request. (He keeps thinking I'm asking to be an admin of the site, which I already am.)

Thanks for continuing to look into this, Marilyn. Given what you've said, I'm guessing that there may be some confusion about what the various email settings are meant to do. I believe that the checkbox from your screenshot only triggers email notifications to the post author, not to the site admin https://redmine.gc.cuny.edu/attachments/10408/comment%20notifications.JPG; and WordPress itself doesn't have a setting for triggering email notifications about new posts. Once the site is linked to a group, however, email notifications for posts as well as for all comments (not just those on your own posts) are sent, using the group email notification system. I suspect that, now that you've connected the two, this will start working as Steve expects.
