#12797 closed enhancement (fixed)

Add comment permalink to plain-text email notification

Description

In comment notification emails there isn't a full link to the actual comment. If a post has a large number of comments, having a permalink with anchor ID to jump to the exact comment would be a nice improvement.

Currently, the email provides a link to the main comment anchor only:
http://example.com/2010/02/03/hot-air/#comments

The improved link would be to the exact comment:
http://example.com/2010/02/03/hot-air/#comment-6
