This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



mnw gives users of an OMB service the possibility to subscribe to your blog directly. Your blog will automatically send OMB notices to subscribers when you publish a new post, page or attachment (configurable). You may as well post arbitrary OMB notices from the wordpress admin interface.

Moreover, mnw allows your blog to subscribe to a remote user and later on receive his messages. To subscribe to a user, enter the your blog‘s URL as your profile URL on the remote user‘s remote subscribe form.


  1. Copy the plugin to your wordpress plugin directory.
  2. Copy mnw-themepage.php as mnw.php to the directory of your current theme.
  3. Adjust this mnw.php to fit to your theme (archives.php is a good start to see how your theme looks like on custom pages).
  4. Create a new page in wordpress. This page is the main frontend of your OMB instance. Give it a sensible name, keep the content empty and select ‘mnw’ as template. Publish this page.
  5. Activate the plugin.
  6. Configure the plugin in the corresponding admin menu.
  7. (Optional) Copy omb.png to the directory of your current theme. Enable the sidebar widget displaying a count of your omb subscribers.
  8. (Optional) Add a sidebar widget showing received messages.
