[resolved] Subscribe2 and Follow plugins - what's the difference? (2 posts)

    I examined both the subscribe2 plugin and the follow plugin. Boths are obviously almost similar. It seems to me follow is based on subscribe2. Or is it the other way round? What are the differences? Which one is the better one, also in terms of update-policy and support?

    @WPwebbouw,

    Follow looks like a fork of the 7.x branch of Subscribe2. It will give you all of the added features which make it took a little more like the Follow button provided by Jetpack and available on WordPress.com blogs but it won't have any of the additions or benefits made to Subscribe2 in the 8.x versions.

    As to which is better, well I guess that really depends on what you want from the plugin.
