FAO Richard, re: Email ping for work that isn't mine
As per the thread title: I've just received a couple of emails notifying me of comments on 'my' work. The only problem being, the work isn't mine (it's a poem called 'Moving Forward' by sweetwater).
Would this be related to recent issues, and if so, is there anything for me to be concerned about, i.e. compromised passwords, etc?
Just checked and the notification system was set to send to 350 members rather than the original author! I have deactivated that plugin now as I think it was not actually required. The main comments system has its own notification settings so I will remove the extraneous plugin and see how it goes.
Just checked the plugin creator's website and found that there was indeed a bug that crept in which sent notifications en masse! I have restarted the plugin with a fix so it should be working now.
