    I am trying to add a heap of content to my site from newsletters I used to send out. I don't want all the people who have signed up for blog notification to be notified everyday I am doing this as most of them have already read the material.

    So is it possible to add content and update/correct posts without people being alerted?

    Thanx

    you havent indicated what you are using to alert people.. thats the important thing for us to know.

    WordPress doesnt alert "people" out of the box. It uses feeds, to which their may be subscribers, and it pings services like technorati, etc..

    Its also important to understand that most feed readers are by request only, not push.

    Just because you are updating stuff doesn't mean it will suddenly be on their computer. More over they are date sensitive, so if you add a new bit of content but set its date to June of 2000, it will already be off the page.

    Usually adding old content back into a new wordpress is perfectly safe =) (Unless you're using some third party plugin to alert people as whooami mentioned..)
