[resolved] Remove a single subscriber from the list of Jetpack subscribers (9 posts)

    I'd like to remove a particular entry of an email subscriber who had subscribed through JetPack's Subscription Widget to my blog http://vsagar.com.
    I've removed the widget but the subscribers remain.
    I want a particular person to remove from getting him any email updates when I post some new content on my blog.
    I've been searching for a way to do it myself but there appears to be none.
    I can't even see that the data is held within the site's database???

    I have been using WP since last 5 years or so, but I could never find it out.

    Please, please, please help.

    I'm afraid that won't be possible. Only the subscribers themselves can choose to subscribe or unsubscribe from your site. If they're having issues unsubscribing on their own, do not hesitate to point them towards our contact form; we'll be happy to help them figure things out.

    I can't even see that the data is held within the site's database?

    That's correct. Subscribers are stored on WordPress.com servers, since the subscription emails are sent from our servers.

    Well, this ends up the search for my requirement.

    But while blogging, sometimes it becomes an utter requirement, to remove a particular subscriber, so far as community blogging is concerned.
    Sometimes, it is required not to update a particular person, during a discussion session, on a particular blog.
    In all such cases, Jetpack does not provide any option for the same.

    But I will still humbly suggest to provide such facility on Jetpack. I was searching for this since last two years, at last I got it.
    But am disappointed by this. But I must appreciate the overall package provided by Jetpack to us bloggers.

    I took note of your suggestion here, and we'll consider the idea for a future Jetpack update.

    It's worth noting, though, that in most cases this option would not be useful as the reader can easily subscribe again or follow the conversation via other channels (like RSS).

    However, if your blog is private the option would become useful, as you could easily remove a subscriber and thus revoke access to the site.

    This is what is I was driving to!
    My story is: I had started one self hosted blog using WP and there was subscription option open to all. But soon I converted that blog into a private discussion blog among our professors of Physics. Now that we don't want such subscribers.
    For such reasons, among many such needy persons, such option will be definitely welcome by lots of people.
    With your reply, I can, but, wait for your future update.
    Wish you all the best.

    Hi !

    I´m looking forward to find this idea in the next jetpack-update....

    My problem is, that I´m using wordpress-blog for unregistered users and registered users.
    Registered users can also press "follow my blog".
    So far so good ...

    but if I remove the user from my blog, he still became the email with my informations.

    But I don´t want, that this people can read restricted things in email.

    Thanks,
    Telefine

    So wait, is it really possible that if you do not want your subscriber list anymore, for so many reasons, you cannot delete it? You are forced to send these people your blog even if you've switched to another service? Unacceptable.

    Very unfortunate that most people will learn this when it's too late.

    if you do not want to use Jetpack Subscriptions anymore, you can deactivate the Subscriptions module under Jetpack > Settings in your dashboard. Your subscribers will stop receiving notifications.

    Fantastic. It was unclear if that stopped only new subscribers or stopped sending the posts altogether. thank you.
