[resolved] understanding the confirmation process (19 posts)

    just curios if I got this right:

    I click on subscribe without commenting.
    I get an email with an activation link, which I click.

    My understanding was that this would be all but now I notice, on the page that opens I need to select my subscription and set it to active.

    Is there a way to send a link by email that, when clicked, automatically sets that particular subscription to active?

    I think its a bit too much asking people to click, then actually manually do something on the management page to get an active subscription....

    This is just my opinion, maybe I am wrong, or maybe I didn't understand the process properly...

    That was a bug I didn't catch before I released version 2.0.2. It's fixed now, so you may want to manually re-download 2.0.2, or you can wait for 2.0.3 to be out in a few weeks.

    Sorry about that,
    Camu

    downloaded again, uploaded via FTP overwriting the previous version, subscribed, clicked the confirmation link and this is the screen that opens: http://screencast.com/t/TAYp0Maq

    so I have to select my subscription and manually activate it. is this how it is supposed to be?

    No, that's not how it's supposed to be. You should see a thank you note saying your subscription has been activated and that you will start receiving your notification as soon as new comments are posted.

    I'll take a look at the code to see if there's something I've missed...

    Can I have access to your blog to take a look? It seem to work fine both on my test/production environments, so I'd like to understand what's going on in your case...

    Thanks,
    Camu

    Never mind, I just realized that your permalinks have a trailing slash, while your corresponding setting for StCR doesn't have it:

    /comment-subscriptions

    while it should be

    /comment-subscriptions/

    Try adding the trailing slash to see if that solves your problem :)

    sorry was offline didn't read your messages in time.
    couldn't give you access since its a multisite isntallation that is live already.

    changed the permalink to

    /comment-subscriptions/

    and it works fine now.

    how to solve this? on a multisite installation I set up the permalinks globally by default. people can change them afterwards...
    having a template to set the permalinks for your plugin's management page site-wide once so all work would be great.

    besides, I just realized another issue: one can subscribe to comments on posts where comments are closed :-) that shouldn't be possible I think since there is no reason for it...

    Yes, having a network-wide configuration page is on my todo list already, but that could mean single blogs will not be able to customize their own settings... is that what you have in mind?

    As for posts with comments closed, you make a good point indeed :)

    hm, no, I guess the best bet is to have an option for the network admin, saying: do not allow sub-blogs to touch these settings and set his own, sitewide.

    if that option is not set, any blog can set his own settings.

    let me make another suggestion:

    how about you build in an option for your plugin to look for a file called i.e. sitewide-options.cfg and if found use those settigns sitewide as defaults. this way, before activating sitewide, I could edit that file and set my desired defaults. then I network activate the plugin and my defaults are spread. what the single blog owners then do is up to them, but I know I have activated the plugin with the settings I want to them...

    I'm not a big fan of static files, given the direction taken by WordPress to almost completely eliminate the need to use FTP. Here's the idea I have in mind: network administrators will be able to override any of the settings for each blog in the network. They will have the same "management" page as single administrators, and if they change a value, it will be set for all the blogs, overwriting the existing value.

    Then another option will allow the superadmin to not let blog administrators change those settings.

    So, in your case, you would activate the plugin as usual, then go to the network management page and set the values you want to be standard. Then it will be up to you to decide if blog administrators should be allowed to customize those values or not.

    What do you think?

    hm, sounds good, maybe add two buttons below the settings one called "save for this blog" the other one called "save for all blogs" to be able to also only set the values for the main blog? other than that it sounds great.

    I am having a similar problem.

    1) Readers who have not signed in get the confirmation email correctly, and the URL to active is correct, and displays a thank you note.

    2) Readers who have signed in get the confirmation email correctly, and the URL to active is correct, and displays a thank you note.

    Those 2 are not a problem.....but....

    3) Admins after signing in and signing up get the confirmation email correctly, but upon clicking the activation link does not activate, but display a list of all subscribed users, with the admin still listed as a status of YC. The admin must then manually change his own status.

    4) after all 3 types of users subscribe, and click on the link in the confirmation email (or in the case of admin, click activate in the management page), and I confirm that all of their statuses are set to Y, none of them receive notifications for new comments (you can check this url: http://www.shanzhuoboshi.com/blog/2011/09/27/17013.html).

    Also....

    5) On the admin screen, there are 4 options (delete, suspend, set to Y, and activate). I can't figure out what the difference is between set to Y and activate. They both seem to set the users status to Y. There is also no way to change the status to R

    Hi Andrew,

    this is a known bug, it has already been fixed in 2.0.3. Hopefully I'll be able to wrap up the last few edits soon and release it to the public!

    When you say "this is a known bug".....which of the following are you refering to:

    1) admins clicking on link in email do not get activated but get taken to the management page

    or

    2) notifications on my blog are not being sent out (even though the confirmation email is being sent correctly).
