FAQ

How can I change the place of the subscription checkbox?

Use this code (within the loop) in your template file, to change the place of the checkbox: <?php show_subscription_checkbox(); ?>

Can people subscribe manually without commenting?

Yes, just place this code snippet in your template (outside the comments form): <?php show_manual_subscription_form(); ?>

I use Hosteurope.de as my website hoster and I cannot send e-mails via this plugin

Reviews

Best I’ve found

Tested a bunch. Best plugin I’ve found to subscribe people to comments. Simple to set up. Worked out of the box. I donated 3 euros.

Keep up the good work,

Etienne

Although it seems to work it does not seem to have support from the developer

I installed the plugin and tested it out. I got an error message when trying to manage subscriptions, saying that “You may not access this page without a valid key”.

I asked for support on this and have had no replies from the developer at all. Just other users having the same problems.

Having said that, it does seem that when a subscriber receives a follow up to the comments to which they subscribe, the email they receive contains a link to manage subscriptions and that does work, it seems, at least.

Due to lack of support by developer and the confusing message to the user, it can’t have more than 2 stars.
