Post Notification
Confirmation and Choose Categories page not working (5 posts)

    When clicking on the confirmation link sent via email, I am taken to the post_notification_header page which still says "Registration Successful" and once again given the message that a confirmation link will be sent to my email and to click on it to choose categories. And then am sent another link via email which takes me back to the same thing, in a continuous loop.

    The subscription does not get confirmed, the email address is not added, and I don't get to choose categories.

    Any ideas? I am using Twenty Twelve theme and WordPress 3.6.

    Have tried this logged in and not logged in.

    I can just confirm that I have the same problem using Post Notification 1.2.40 on WordPress 3.8 and a custom theme.

    Here the same; the problem only exists with a new install.

    I have it working on a few older websites. It does not help to use an old version. I would be happy to keep using this plugin.

    I am using Suffusion theme.

    I just found out what te problem is:
    in the database one table is missing: post_notification_emails

    You can manually add the table by going to your database and copying this into the SQL field:

    CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTSwp_post_notification_emails` (
    id int(11) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
    email_addr varchar(255) DEFAULT NULL,
    gets_mail int(11) DEFAULT NULL,
    last_modified timestamp NOT NULL DEFAULT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP ON UPDATE CURRENT_TIMESTAMP,
    date_subscribed datetime DEFAULT NULL,
    act_code varchar(32) DEFAULT NULL,
    subscribe_ip int(10) unsigned NOT NULL DEFAULT '0',
    PRIMARY KEY (id),
    KEY id (id,gets_mail),
    KEY email_addr (email_addr)
    ) ENGINE=MyISAM DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1;`

    Take care that you choose the right prefix for your table: wp_post_notification_emails or somethingelse_post_notification_emails

    After the table was added, everything worked fine!

    Hi Karla,

    I have stumbled across the same problem and I wonder if you can help me implement your solution - where do I find the database that I need to amend? Thanks!
