Subscribe2
Subscriber side Weekly vs Per Post choice implementation (3 posts)

    Dear developers,
    I am familiar with subscribe2 per installation for a client, but I am slowly falling in love with this plugin myself.
    The only extra feature that I wish the plugin would have is availability of a blog user side's option to chose between weekly digests and "per post" email notifications (I guess other available time frames for notification choices can be added as well).

    My client's issue on this was that while trying to be as not intrusive with his subscribers (1K+) as possible, he is often at the dilemma of going with "per post" notification or weekly digests (depending on how many publications per week he is making) or the weekly ones. He currently keeps switching back and forth, but the preference is to let subscribers (blog users) to chose the frequency by themselves.

    If that matters, he has the "Automatically subscribe new blog users" setting to "On".

    If adding such choices is not to be implemented as feature for of the whole plugin, I would appreciate an advice on code modification. It seems that it is just a matter of "transferring/enabling" the admin's side digest frequency radio buttons, to user's interface.

    Thank you in advance.

    Actually, while on it, enabling the user side choices for other parameters such as HTML - Full, HTML - Excerpt, Plain Text - Full, Plain Text - Excerpt seems logical as well.
    Where there any particular reasons to not have all these choices available to subscribers on the first place?

    @BlogMinded,

    Implementing user level choice for digest frequency would involve quite a lot more than simply making those options available in the preference page.

    The options would need to be processed and stored in the database, retrieved at the appropriate time and also multiple cron events would need scheduling for the plugin for each of the different digest time frames.

    Additionally, they would need to be a way to turn this off for admins who don't want to offer such a a feature and there would also need to be some filtering offered on the digest periods available as there are other plugins out there that add multiple new cron intervals that could quickly clutter such a screen.

    Choice of email type is available to per-post Registered Subscribers at Subscribe2->Your Subscriptions.
