How to disable email notification for new post to followers or subscribers (Jetpack)?

Jetpack has an answer for this. This is for self hosted WordPress.

First, open your functions.php inside wp-content/themes/your-theme/. Add the following line:

You are done!

Every time you want to post a new post, you will see a checkbox. Tick, if you don’t want to email your subscribers of your new post.

Don't send email to subscribers checkbox

Don’t send email to subscribers checkbox


  1. Oh my gosh! Thanks so much! I was trying to find how to do this all day. People were saying delete subscribers or deactivate the function and I couldn’t figure out how to do either.

  2. I love that I have this information, but my coding wont stick in the editor. Every time I save it it disappears. I swear my blog is determined to email them regardless of what I do. Its like it knows lol…

  3. Thank you for this method, it will be very useful.I have a related question re subscriber notifications, which is too long to post here.Can we contact you directly through email, IM or other?
