[resolved] Subscribe2 Plugin v8.3 failure (37 posts)

    I am using the Subscrbe2 plugin. The previous versions could be used to send emails to users on my website, but the v8.3 cannot. Anytime I try to send a message, the response I get is "ARE YOU SURE YOU WANT TO DO THIS?". Can you tell me what is wrong?

    Thanks

    @yatong,

    Send a message from where? When you publish a post or from hte Subscribe2->Send Mail screen?

    Also, while you are checking, in your wp-config.php file have you correctly added the 'Salts'?

    Yes, I am having the same problem. I am sending from the send mail screen i have chosen my subscriber list in the drop down, added my message and click send. Then this are you sure message comes up. I cannot go forward from there.

    @Cholland,

    Okay, same question to you then, have you applied the WordPress 'Salts' to your wp-config.php file?

    Also, can you access the other pages okay? What happens on those when you use the forms (like filtering in the Subscribe2->Subscribers page or updating Settings?

    Have you checked for plugin conflicts (by temporarily deactivating other plugins and re-testing)?

    I have not added any other plugins after updating from 8.2 to 8.3. Even so i may have to check this if I cannot fix. About the config file. I found it on my server and took a look inside. I am not too comp. literate so I just counted how many keys were there. I counted 8. That is the number that I saw in the link you pasted above. Also the keys names were all the same too. All the other pages and forms seem to be working ok. Another bit of info, I have about 35 WP blogs and the blogs I have tried so far that have updated to 8.3 have not worked, this may indicate that the issue is not a plugin compatibility problem.

    @Cholland,

    I'm hoping that each of those Salt keys had a value of something other than "put your unique phrase here".

    Weirdly, it works fine for my on my sites (testing and 2 lives sites) so I can't see how it's an issue in the plugin code directly, if it was then it wouldn't work for me.

    Do the other pages work okay? If so I know I'm only looking at one page, if not I know it's a more general issue.

    Also, please let me know how you get on with the plugin compatibility checking.

    @Cholland / @yatong,

    Got it! There's a small error in the send_mail.php file in the admin subfolder. Very near to the top you'll see this line:
    check_admin_referer('subscribe2-write_subscribers', $s2nonce);

    It needs changing to:
    check_admin_referer('subscribe2-write_subscribers' . $s2nonce);

    Notice the ',' in the brackets is replaced with a '.'

    great thank you so much. I will try this. Can you tell me where I access this file? ok I found the file on installed plugins then subscribe2 then edit. I edited it as instructed and clicked update. I tried and it still didn't work. Do I need to do anything else such as log out and log back in or change a file on my server as well?

    ok I tried but it is still a no go.

    Maybe the designer of that plugin should update the entire plugin so that users will re-install it.

    Thanks a lot for detecting the error.

    Cholland is right. I did the update but still not working.

    @yatong,

    I'll certainly roll this out in an update at some point but I've got a few other priorities first.

    MattyRob, I did make the connection that you were a developer of this plugin and I understand priorities. Do you have an ETA on when you have a few minutes to test that send mail function? Are you getting the error?

    @Cholland,

    There was no error for me as the comma ',' error slipped into the development code but was not on my own sites.

    I've found a second glitch of the same type at line 56. Replace:
    wp_nonce_field('subscribe2-write_subscribers', $s2nonce);
    With:
    wp_nonce_field('subscribe2-write_subscribers' . $s2nonce);

    Reverting these two commas to periods / fullstops '.' would make your send_mail.php file identical to mine and mine works fine.

    That last bit got me fixed up, but I did notice that when I hit the "preview button" that it went directly to "mail sent!!" notification. Not a huge issue, but an issue nonetheless.

    @nevermore93,

    That is the default message is Send or Preview are successful but you raise the point that the messages are misleading. I'll update that in the next version to make it clearer that a preview or live mail was sent.

    @MattyRob,
    When you get a chance and if you think worthy I would love a way to stagger the e-mail load. My server handles 200-300 per hour, with current settings it does break recipients into designated numbers but it does not time delay the e-mails out so my server times out and 2/3rds of my mailing list which is 2,400 gets undelivered. Any possibility of adding this function?

    Please this is off topic.
    I need a small help here. Can you recommend a plugin to show images in a stream? I want the images in my posts to show in a stream where I can view images by clicking next. I mean I want the images to be linked in a way that I can navigate the images by clicking next/forward. Right now I can only see other images by coming back to the main window and selecting the image I want to see in a full sized form.

    I hope you can help me
    You can visit my site at http://bookerzmedia.com and see Lady Gaga's images. Select one picture and see that the other images don't follow in a link.

    Thanks

    @yatong,

    I don't use any image plugins on my sites as they are not image rich. Sorry, can't help. Try looking in the Plugins section of WordPress.org.

    the two fixes in send_email.php did the trick... But what does preview do? When i hit the preview buttons it just confirm message sent. Not sure if it is just sending a single message to me for my own personal preview... Please clarify.

    Also is there an import CSV like mailchimp has? actually would be great if i could easily stay in sync with our mailchimp newsletter email list.

    @pursuitofhappinessyoga,

    The preview button sends the email to the currently logged in user

    I've answered the CSV question in the thread where you first asked that question.

    Hi here,
    This is also off topic. I just some advice. I am using worpress and buddypress together. I have decided to go with only buddypress as it offers a suitable platform for forums. I have about 700 registered users. Is there a way I can disable worpress and not lose current users accounts?
    Your advice will be appreciated.
    Thanks

    @yatong,

    Sorry but I have absolutely no idea having never used BuddyPress. Perhaps you should ask on their forums.

    I've replaced those strings and sure it gets past the screen and says message sent but it's not sending anything.
    I am registered and don't get any emails.
    The test email does however send to me.

    Also I published a new page and got no email.

    I tried replacing:
    check_admin_referer('subscribe2-write_subscribers', $s2nonce);

    with:
    wp_nonce_field('subscribe2-write_subscribers' . $s2nonce);

    I did not work form, HOWEVER I tried just removing the line completely, and that did work!
