Custom Comment Notifications allows for the comment email notifications to be customized. This way you can choose what information gets included in the e-mail and
what information is left out. You can make the e-mails as detailed or as minimal as you desire. Through the use of some given variables, you are able to generate a
standard e-mail template that will be dynamically generated and sent to your authors and moderators. You can specify a separate template for your authors and another
for you moderators.
