Subscribe to comments of blogs: Implement ICommentNotificationsStrategy interface
You need to implement the ICommentNotificationsStrategy interface with a new CustomCommentNotificationsStrategy class that inherits from the Telerik.Sitefinity.Services.Comments.Impl.Notifications.CommentNotificationsStrategy. The methods of ICommentNotificationsStrategy for subscriptions expect a SubscriptionDataobject as a parameter. You can extend the SubscriptionData class to provide any additional information that you need to use, in this case - this parameter is the ID of the parent blog.
Next, you provide custom subscription keys. Sitefinity CMS uses different patterns for constructing the subscription keys for the different types of subscription. That is, the structure of the subscription key used for notification by thread differs from the structure of the subscription key used for notification by thread type. The unique structure of the subscription keys enables you to get the subscription list that is associated with certain event. You can extend the SubscriptionData class to provide any additional information that you need to use, in this case - this parameter is the ID of the parent blog.
