    What is the easiest way to review and remove old subscribers – these are Registered Subscribers that also have a user account. There doesn’t seem to be a date of subscription visible when viewing Registered Subscribers so there doesn’t appear to be an easy way of doing this from the admin?

    Many thanks in advance!

    Joining date for Registered Users is stood in WordPress tables. WordPress doesn’t show this by default and nor does Subscribe2 but I’ll look to add this in a future version.

    For now you can look in the database directly or perhaps this may help you:

    I’ve made some changes to add a date column to the Registered Subscriber tab in the Subscribe2 pages, updated code is here if you are willing to test:

    Many thanks – this would be great if it works. I should be able to test it on a test site I have set up, would I just replace the contents of your the plugin folder with the contents in github?

    Cheers!

    Yes, replace the contents to the wp-content/plugins/subscr2/ folder with all of the file and folders in this zip:

    I’ve tested it on my test site and it worked great thank you! 🙂

    Can I just clarify why we also have user accounts for each registered subscriber? If we delete old registered subscribers I’m assuming that means we will have effectively cleaned up our email list but the matching User account for the same email will also still be there though?

    Many thanks again!

    Subscribe2 Registered Users / Subscribers are WordPress users wit additional details added to the core WP databases to enable email sending. New accounts are created via the WordPress code that is simply extended by Subscribe2.

    Ok thank you.

    So really we still need to delete the matching WP user accounts to the Registered Subscribed emails that we want to delete too?

    If we just cleanse the old Registered Subscribed emails then the matching / corresponding user accounts will still exist unless we also manually delete them – is that correct?

    Cheers,

    Yes, that’s correct. If you delete a WP user account it will disappear from the Subscribe2 page also. And if you delete the account from the Subscribe2 page it will disappear from the WP user listing.

    Ah right – that’s not what I thought then.

    So deleting one automatically deletes the other? Or have I misundertsood?

    Many thanks.

    No, you’ve have understood, they are not really separate things but one and the same with just a tiny bit more data added for Subscribe2, so deleting one does delete the other.

    Ok that’s great.
    Is a new version of the plugin going to be released including this update? If so when?

    Many thanks 🙂

    Yes, I am sure this change will be in the next release but at the moment I’m not sure when that will be – we need to get a few more changes to make it worthwhile.
