    How do you manually enter new subscribers? The last version had a place to do so, where is it on the update?

    I'm trying to do this now. Its asking me to create a password for a subscriber. Why would a subscriber need a password? My website does not have a sign in feature, or anyplace where they can post. Subscribers only get email updates when I add new pages. Is there a way I can add their email to my subscriber list without having to give them a password?
    Thank you.

    I was just back at the site, and so we're not confused, the language the site uses for what I am trying to enter is PUBLIC subscribers, not subscribers to administer the site.

    samboll gave you an answer to the question you asked.

    Anyway, you don't need to add people as WordPress Users for them to receive e-mail updates. You can use FeedBurner's Email Subscription feature ( http://feedburner.google.com/ ) or use one of the many plugins out there. Lorelle explains the various options here:

    I dont really want to use a thrid program, (i.e feedburner) I am having enough trouble with midphase and wordpress. I was able to add new public subscribers into the site before the update, why cant I do this now?

    Why do you have them subscribing? To get the email addresses? Do you send them anything? Just curious why you wouldn't want them to be able to update their email address (that's why they need a password - to login to their profile).

    I mean, authenticating who is commenting requires login, too, right? What's the purpose of requiring sign up if you aren't actually using that functionality?

    Just asking...

    but take a look at this plugin:
