Subscribe2
Subscribe2 future post notifications (11 posts)

    I'm using "The Future Is Now" plugin to post future posts for events, etc. Understandably, Subscribe2 is not picking these up to send an e-mail notification.

    I saw on the http://subscribe2.wordpress.com site an old post that mentioned WP-cron to send future posts now. Unfortuantely, WP-cron no longer seems to be in development.

    Does anyone know a plugin or other method that I can use to get Subscribe2 to also send e-mail notifications for future posts?

    Thanks in advance.

    @elarson,

    I don't think this is to do with WP-Cron as that functionality got built right into WordPress a while ago.

    If you are using version 6.5 of Subscribe2 then around line 550 you'll see this code:

    // Is this post set in the future?
    if ( $post->post_date > current_time('mysql') ) {
    // bail out
    	return $post;
    }

    Erase all of those lines and I think your Future posts will work and send out a notification at the time of posting.

    Many thanks MattyRob -- it worked. Is there any chance this could be considered for a feature request in the Subscribe2 settings for future updates to the plugin? It is especially useful for those using the plugin "The Future Is Now" to post future posts for events, etc.

    @elarson,

    I'm looking at that code now anyway, I'm not sure it is needed any more for the plugin to function without "The Future Is Now". So, if it is not needed anyway, I can remove it and it will cure this issue for future releases too.

    Thanks MattyRob. Is there any chance that I can get at a beta/development version of subscribe2. I'm having some language related issues it maybe might help with (see http://getsatisfaction.com/subscribe2/topics/dutch_translations_are_not_working_s2_version_6_5_wp_version_3_2_1 )

    BTW, I have confusion over whether I should be posting to the getsatisfaction.com site or to this site. Any input?

    @elarson,

    The development version is here. Perhaps bumping the version number will help the language issues but I don't think so.

    As for which site - whichever you prefer but ideally only one :)

    Thanks so much for sending the 7.0-beta. I can't tell you how much I appreciate that you have a menu with all subscribe2 options together. The old way has cost me countless hours in explaining to people how it works.

    Can you give me an "idea" of how stable you think this code is and if it might be released soon? I have a newbie site that, after testing if it works well, I would much rather use than the stable version. I'll be sure to give you all the feedback I can, as I do it (and could probably get the Dutch .po updated too if you are interested).

    BTW, not to be a total pain in the butt, but is there any way you would consider release all .mo/.po files in a suitable /language folder within the plugin? It sure would make life easier for updates.

    @elarson,

    Up until today I would have said the beta was very stable but it's just failed on my main site (a live non-testing one too!). I'll have to figure out why later tonight as I'm in work at the moment.

    As for bundling the mo files - I don't get them before I release the code and it's sometimes months later when they are submitted so I can't bundle them. I'm also not keen on releasing point revisions each time I get a new mo file as it results in lots of unnecessary upgrade messages in WordPress.

    Thanks for your candor. It helps in knowing if I should go live. I have it on 3 newbie sites,and am not experiencing failures so far. I gather it is is migration issues your are struggling with. I feel for you.

    About the lang' and not including them, I understand. I really wish WordPress would adopt "internationalized" standards. I struggle with this a lot (not-for-profit). I am about to start a Greek/English WP site, and am not looking forward to it;-)

    Thanks for the great work (and help)!

    Hi MattyRob,

    Any news on the release of 7.0? I have been using 7.0 beta, but it appears to have stopped working. I'm using WP 3.2.1. If the launch is imminent, I will wait, but if not, I may go back to 6.5.

    Regards,
    Ellyn
