[Plugin: Subscribe to comments] Theming the plugin (4 posts)

    Didn't know if this should be in Theme group or this one. Anyway, anyone know how I could go about theming this plugins 'Subscription Manager'? Currently it goes a rather ugly white page which is mostly just plain text. It works perfectly, I just wish it was integrated with my sites theme better!

    Okay, failing that as I've had no replies. Any alternative comment subscription plug-ins for WordPres that offer more customisation?

    If you look in the Subscribe To Comments settings there are options about the header, sidebar and footer files to include as well as HTML to put before the subscription manager page and after.

    Careful use of those options will cover just about any eventuality. Specifically, you need to use the before/after HTML to add any opening or closing DIVs that your theme takes for granted in files like index.php and single.php so that the page will work with your header and footer.

    You can also add a custom CSS class around the whole page, then use that to target its contents with CSS.

    It's pretty annoying that this stuff isn't mentioned in the plugin's Installation or FAQ sections, as I keep forgetting how I did it in the past and having to re-investigate.

    This was so easy, thanks for the reply! In less than a minute I had everything set up using my sites theme, amazing. I'm very happy thank you so much.

    I'd given up hope on anyone replying after so long.
