Subscribe2 and 403 error (2 posts)

    Greets:
    I wanted to try out the Subscribe2 plugin on my WordPress site. I've activated the plugin, and then did a test with one of my email addresses. It took the submission. But when I've clicked on the link in the email to confirm the subscription, I've ended up with this...

    You don't have permission to access /wordpress/ on this server.

    You may need to create an index.html page or enable the directory browsing by creating an .htaccess file containing "Options +Indexes".

    Apache/1.3.34 Server at http://www.urbanlandscapes.org Port 80

    I should say that I have WordPress in a separate directory, and the index.php and .htaccess files in my root directory. Not sure if that's part of the issue, but could use some guidance. Thanks!

    I've found my error, but I'm still at a loss...

    I've eventually got it working, somewhat. I have it to where it sends out a confirmation message. When the person clicks on the link, however, a 403 error results. The offending link adds a /wordpress/ path, and it's only by me removing that part of the path that the confirmation was successful.

    My core WordPress files are in a /wordpress directory, whereas my index.php file for my site is on the root level. The subscribe2.php file has a bunch of "siteurl" references in it. I've tried replacing "siteurl" with the absolute address of my site, but it wouldn't take. If I change the siteurl, it could break things left and right.

    Is there a handy workaround that I need to insert in the code, or modify in myPHPAdmin, or whatever it takes to get the plugin to work proper? Thanks.
