Gurken Subscribe to Comments (deprecated)
[Plugin: Gurken Subscribe to Comments] Trying to reduce emails being sent (8 posts)

    Hi,
    I was having problems with the previous "subscribe to comments" plug-in so starting using this one instead. Much better.

    However, I have been getting notifications from my host that it's generating too many emails (6000 a day) so I'm trying to decrease the number being sent.

    I have a handful of posts that have 200+ subscriptions so I'd like to be able to unsubscribe everyone from those.

    And/or...

    I'd like to unsubscribe everybody that was subscribed using the old plug-in so, from now on, I know that everyone has gone through the double opt-in.

    Is there an easy way to do this sort of thing?

    Thanks in advance for any assistance you can offer.

    Hello,

    Thank you for your email. I think I have to disappoint you. I looked at the code and I don’t think that there is a possibility to separate the comments subscribed by the original version and my fork. I kept the changes to a minimum.

    But it shouldn’t be a problem to do a bulk unsubscribe. But you have to do it with a (simple) sql query.

    With the following query you will see a list of all subscribed comments:
    select * from wp_comments where comment_subscribe = 'Y'

    Comments for the last 3 days:
    select * from wp_comments where comment_subscribe = 'Y' and DATE_SUB(CURDATE(), INTERVAL 3 DAY) <= comment_date_gmt

    Comments for the last 3 months:
    select * from wp_comments where comment_subscribe = 'Y' and DATE_SUB(CURDATE(), INTERVAL 3 MONTH) <= comment_date_gmt

    Bulk unsubscribe:
    Update wp_comments set comment_subscribe = 'N' where comment_subscribe = 'Y' and DATE_SUB(CURDATE(), INTERVAL 3 DAY) <= comment_date_gmt

    And be careful: I haven’t tested the queries, as usual do a backup first!

    Sorry if I underestimated your sql skills, but maybe this is useful for others.

    Greetings,
    Martin

    Before installing camu's plugin as a replacement for Gurken Subscribe to Comments, you might want to read carefully this Subscribe to Comments Reloaded discussion.

    I've been using this plugin for three months now, and I have had zero problems. It didn't work with my template at first, I must admit it, but Camu was very responsive and his support is excellent! Gurken and Mark haven't replied to their requests in months :)

    Camu, frankly carmela79 above (and Beatrice54 here and dieglo here) look like sock puppets with zero user history before making their quick comments.

    If you think there has been any impropriety in voting I suggest you have WordPress.org check the logs for voting on your plugin.

    At Foliovision, we have neither the time nor the inclination to tamper with plugin voting. You should be more careful before making wild accusations like this.

    Great, sock puppets. Thanks for signing up just to post the WP community the words camu put in your mouth.
