Adding the message body to the email notification

I'm trying to add the body of a new comment to the notification email that is sent to subscribers. I've seen this post, which basically says "no", with the explanation that it's intended to get people to go back to the forum - something I'm not terribly concerned about.


I've also tried tinkering with the entries in definitions.php:

$Definition['EmailNotification'] = '%1$s

Follow the link below to check it out:

Have a great day!';
$Definition['EmailStoryNotification'] = '%1$s


Follow the link below to check it out:

Have a great day!';

However, I'm not sure what variable(s) to put in there which would contain the message body, because, as far as I can tell, it's not being passed in.

I've also tried to find a plugin that might provide this functionality.

I would really appreciate a nudge in the right direction. I expect that this is either really easy, or impossible, and I'd very much like to know which.

    You want to hook into the comment model. It sends over everything you would (presumably) need in the Before Notification event. Use the following in your plugin to get started:

    public function CommentModel_BeforeNotification_Handler($Sender) {

    Thanks. I'll start there and see what I can come up with.
