Subscribe to news items' comments that are awaiting approval

In a situation where comment approval is required, a moderator or an administration of the page needs to know when a new comment in status Awaiting approval is submitted. Thus, the moderator can check and verify that the comment complies with page policies and publish it.


  • You have installed Sitefinity CMS 6.2 or above.
  • You have enabled in Sitefinity's backend the option for approval of comments and the option for email subscription. To do this:
    1. Navigate to Administration » Settings » Advanced » CommentsModule » Commentable types » Telerik.Sitefinity.News.Model.NewsItem.
    2. Select the Requires approval and Enable email subscription checkboxes.
