I want disable comment notifications going to the admin everytime a new comment is posted...

But I can't find this setting in the maze that EE is.

How can I turn this off? Where is this setting?

You can adjust comment notifications in the particular Channel's preferences.

Administration > Channels > Edit Preferences (choose the appropriate Channel)

Then scroll down to "Notification Preferences"

  • That's just where the templates are managed. I'm pretty sure the notification settings are all in the Channel's preferences. Make sure Notify the author of an entry whenever a comment is submitted? is set to "No" as well. And double check that you are editing the right Channel's preferences.

  • Sounds like the setting never took in the database. Are you using EE 2.7.3? I just did a test and I think this actually might be a bug where once set to "y", comment_notify_authors and comment_notify can not be set back to "n" in the exp_channels table.
