Subscribe Me


This plugin has been retired. No further development will occur on it.

The Subscribe Me plugin will add buttons that let your visitors share your content on social media sites such as Bloglines or Google Reader.

Hovering the big RSS buttons will reveal the subscription services. Only major services are included, alongside a Desktop subscription link for those who have the relevant software.

Users of themes that do not support widgets will need to add the following call in their template:

<php the_subscribe_links(); ?>

The call accepts an optional argument, which sets the widget’s title.

Help Me!

The Plugin’s Forum is the best place to report issues.


  1. Upload the plugin folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
