Jetpack Subscriptions module sends new post email on updates? (4 posts)

    Using Jetpack 1.2.2 on a WordPress 3.3.1 blog (self-hosted) with the Jetpack Subscriptions widget in sidebar.

    This morning, I updated a large number of old posts - using the "quick edit" feature on the posts page in the dashboard, and specifically enabling comments for the posts one at a time, then clicking update.

    It seems to me emails went out to all the subscribers listing these as new posts? (Or possibly they were only sent to me as the admin?)

    Just tried replicating the behavior with additional email address subscribed not as admin - but now neither my admin address nor a normal email address is getting any notifications.

    So, the question is, is Jetpack supposed to send "New Post" notifications when a post is updated?

    I'm seeing the same behaviour on my installation of JetPack, John.

    We've seen this bug before too and are working on it. Notifications should go out only when a post is first published, not each time it is updated.

    I just installed JetPack and love it so far--but today it sent out an e-mail of an old post (March 2012) that didn't have new comments or anything. Is there any way to dictate what is sent to subscribers? I only want new posts to go out, when they are first published.

    Also, I noticed from reading about the plugin that a "subscribe to this blog by email" and "receive notification of comments to this post" (maybe worded a bit differently!) should appear under posts by default. They don't show on mine: http://evbishop.com/just-a-thought/ Dark Essence Theme by iTheme. Any ideas why?

    Thanks!

    :) Ev
