GOAL: I want to get notified, by email, when a customer posts a new comment on a blog post.
WHAT I’VE TRIED: I read all the other discussion forum posts I could find. The solution going around seems to be hooking up to an .atom RSS feed for unapproved comments. I have tried this, with multiple feed readers.
THE PROBLEM: The RSS feed method doesn’t seem to work anymore. I am using Feedly, and trying to add the following url https://homegrown-test-theme.myshopify.com/admin/comments.atom?status=unapproved
Anyone? I’ve tried everything I can think of. I tried asking live chat support and they told me to post here.
Hi Shane and Mark,
If you get tired of waiting for Shopify to expand their blog features, you may want to investigate the option of integrating a Wordpress (or similar) blog into your Shopify store. This will give you much more features and control of your blog, etc.
Here's some information about starting/connecting a Wordpress blog on Shopify.
Also, there's a Shopify App that can help you import your existing blogs into Shopify with 1-click and keep them automatically synced
Disclaimer ... I'm not a blog expert and am not affilliated with any of these links, etc. I cannot speak to the accuracy of the information. I just thought I'd offer this possible solution that I've seen other store owner's use.
Best of luck!
