I am happy to help you debug for MU. The settings page has check boxes for moderation, notify and notify always. It also says that there is "no subscriber yet" and I see no way to add a subscriber.
Every user of your WP installation who wants to be notified has to check that notification-box himself.
The checkboxes you're talking about have different meanings.
means that every new entry is instantly visible on your guestbook without the need of your approval.
will send an email to the the address of the account you're using to check that checkbox. It will always say "no subscriber yet", because that list won't include your name. I can make an entry in that list for the existing account too, maybe that'll make things clearer for people.
is an option to be notitifed no matter if that new entry was marked as spam or not. If you check that you'll always get a mail when someone hits the submit button (and, of course, entered the reCAPTCHA (if activated) correctly).
I made the change to do-saveNewEntry.php with no apparent changes. Note that this is line 172 in my version and the code is:
wp_mail($emails[$i], $subject, $mail_body, $header);
$subscriber is $emails in my version.
What is the version number of Gwolle-GB you're running? I thought if you changed the
the SMTP plugin would work. Have you received any notifications yet? Just to make sure: Log in with your admin account, double check the email address for this account on the profile page, then go to the settings page of Gwolle-GB and check the "Notify me..." option. Save your settings, write an entry via the front page and check your emails. If it still doesn't work please write me an email to gwolle (at) wolfgangtimme (dot) de and we'll check on that again; you may also use this forum, but I check my emails more often, so we should be quicker that way.
My question on web based entry approval ... I do not see a way to approve pending entries that appear on the GuestBook->Entries tab. Their status s shown and I can click to select them but there is no action button to approve them.
That's right, I noticed the checkboxes too. I was going to make them work in a future release, but for now you have to go on "Details" and then check ".. unlocked" and apply that change to the entry.
And an aesthetic request ... at the bottom of the settings tab you have the SAVE button and then below that the UNINSTALL button. I'd suggest moving the UNINSTALL button to the right of the window or making it a different style or something.
You're so right. :) When I recently updated my version of Gwolle-GB, I found myself clicking on that 'uninstall' button, at the same moment getting the feeling that this was the wrong one.
In the newest release (it's not out, though) I integrated a check for this. You're asked "Do you really want to..." and have to click on "OK" to uninstall it. I'm thinking about a nicer way for this; I don't want anyone to mistakenly delete their entry table.
Thanks for your help, I really appreciate that.
