Hi camu, thanks for coding this great plugin.
Unfortunately I stumble on so issues I like to share, maybe you can give me some feedback.
1) When I installed the plugin I got
In the comment form Custom HTML field. After I altered something on the page and saved it, it rendered my subscribe form invisible. It took me a while before I realized that I had to clean the field all together to get things back in working state. So I guess this is a small bug. I got the same when I installed the plugin in a other blog.
2) I am struggling with the: Enable double check feature.
I expected that I would send a e-mail to the filed e-mail address. With a conformation link and a "Ignore this if you didn't ask for this" note. That's usally the way opt-in is handled over here in The Netherlands and it satisfies all.
It took me a while to figure out that I 1st have to klick a link to go to a management page. 2nd click to send the management e-mail 3rd check my mail and go to webpage 4rd figure out how to enable my subscription on this page. Which was even to me not obvious at first glance.
This illustrates that the double opt-in option as it is now is very complicated and user unfriendly, technical user could find there way, but non technical users of my blogs will get lost in the process.
I think a good double opt-in function does the following.
send a e-mail after hitting the comment button
the message is not tagged as spam e.g. by aksimet
directly after the comment is submitted, so no wait for approval by admin.
Please share your thoughts
