Is there a way to notify the author of an Article when a comment is posted? I see were a moderator can be notified, but I'd like to notify just the article author. Thanks!

Look at the settings on the security tab:
awesomescreenshot.com/0131aldwbc

This option will make the author of the article moderator of the comments for this article. And if you have the option to send notifications to moderators, then they will receive a mail as well.

Regards,
Daniel

Thanks. On my local copy I don't have that field under Setting Security. Joomla 2.5.11 - Compojoom comment 4.2.1. Image attached.

Thanks. So this is not possible until CComment5 is in final release? (The download page says not to instal 5l on production sites).

Since you are running 4.2.1, there shouldn't be a problem to install ccommen5 . (we are obviously running with it on compojoom.com). There is something to note about ccomment5 - it currently comes with only 1 template.
