Are custom post types treated separately for notifications?

Hi @exmosis,
Thanks for your message.

It won’t default to the New Comment notification for the default ‘post’ post type unfortunately, but this by design as WordPress by default doesn’t allow you to customise comment notifications on a per-post type basis.

If a New Comment notification appears under your custom post type in the list of available notifications when creating a new BNFW notification then yes, you’ll need to create a comment notification for that post type too.

Hope this helps.
