Subscribe To Comments Reloaded
No checkbox shows. (6 posts)

    I believe I've followed the instructions very carefully, but I see no checkbox. I added the line of code to comments.php, but still no checkbox. Also, permalink settings - I don't understand your instruction there. How is that field supposed to "reflect" my permalink structure? I have no idea what you mean by that. I tried various permalink strings for that field with no success.

  2. By default you don't actually have to edit comments.php - that's only a workaround. Unless your theme is coded really weirdly, the checkbox should show up automatically in the right place.

    Can I see a link to your site?

    Customize the Permalink value under Settings > Subscribe to Comments > Management Page > Management URL. It must reflect your permalinks' structure

    It is poorly worded, I agree! Do you have pretty permalinks turned on? If so, then in the field, put something like /manage-subscriptions (like in the example they give you in the admin area).

    Guys, I admit my English is not excellent :) Please help me improve STCR, it would benefit all its users. How can I change that description to make it easier to understand?

    Thanks
    Camu

    Hi Zoonini,

    I installed and activated the plugin, but there was no checkbox. So I added the code to comments.php, but still no checkbox. I don't think my theme is coded weirdly.

    When this didn't work, I uninstalled it and installed Subscribe to Comments, and it does seem to be working. The site is http://www.marciamountshoop.com.

    Permalinks: I have it set this way:
    http://marciamountshoop.com/2011/12/15/sample-post/

    I'm going to respond to Camu separately about the wording.

    Thanks for your help. If I can get Reloaded to work, I'd rather use it.

    Best,
    Patty

    Hi Camu,

    First, thank you for creating the plugin!

    The wording is not that bad. "Reflect" makes sense. I just don't understand IN WHAT WAY my setting should reflect my Permalink structure. *How* should they be similar? What needs to be similar about it? If my Permalink structure has date information in it, should the STCR field have date information in it?

    It looks like I have other problems. If everything else was working, I probably wouldn't have had any questions about the Permalinks, because I would have probably guessed right.

    Again, thanks for writing this plugin. It sounds like it is an improvement over the STC plugin, and I'd be happy to use it if I can.

    Best,

    Patty

    Camu, thanks for a great plug-in!

    I think your wording in the admin area itself is a lot clearer, so I'd lean toward something more like that for the installation instructions themselves. Maybe something like:

    Customize the page slug for the subscription-management page under: Settings > Subscribe to Comments > Management Page > Management URL.

    If you're using pretty permalinks enter a page slug here, for example manage-subscriptions* If you are using the default permalinks, enter a fake page id, like page_id=345.** (Note that this subscriber-management page is a "virtual" page that you do not actually need to create in the system.)

    Notes/Questions
    * suggest already adding the slash / after the pre-entered domain name so the user does not have to add it manually, to avoid user error

    ** what if the user accidentally enters a page ID that already exists in the system - how is this conflict overcome?
