Subscribe2
[resolved] Daily Digest pulls the last 5 newest posts - Every day (10 posts)

    When I first installed Subscribe2 everything worked well for several months. I believe it was after the 8.6 update, the daily digest began sending the last 5 newest posts, everyday regardless of whether or not they were new posts. I tried deleting the 5 most recent posts and it continues to send 5 of the next newest posts.

    I have the current version, 8.8 installed in the current version of WordPress.

    Not sure what could be causing this. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Alex

    @importnut,

    I'm not seeing anything like this on my sites. Could it be a plugin conflict?

    No idea.

    I have jetpack installed, as well as "add this".

    I'm not a programmer and I really don't know how to dig into the code. Is there something I can check to see if pages are flagged as new or something like that?

    Thanks

    @importnut,

    The only way that could be happening is if you are manually (or using some code) to re-date all of the posts you make on a regular basis. The digest email uses 2 date fields and collects posts between them. It doesn't look for new posts as there isn't a way to identify posts as new.

    I haven't manually done anything. I'm not a programmer, and would do more harm that good by trying to fix the code.

    I wanted to reinstall the plug in and when I tried to delete it, I received this error message:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function s2_uninstall() in /home/content/66/9716766/html/family/blog/wp-content/plugins/subscribe2/uninstall.php on line 23

    Before I did this, I added a few new posts and when it sent the digest, I still have the 5 most recent, regardless of the age.

    Any thoughts?

    @importnut,

    The fault in the uninstall script is already known and fixed. You can access the working file here:
    http://plugins.svn.wordpress.org/subscribe2/trunk/uninstall.php

    Are you using sticky posts at all? How many posts are included if you send the preview email from the Subscribe2->Settings page?

    With the proper uninstall file, I was able to properly reinstall the plugin.

    It seems to be working correctly now. I will experiment and let you know.

    Thanks!

    @importnut,

    I suspect it was a corrupt database entry in that case. Glad it's fixed and working again now.

    In future, should this happen again, a quicker fix would be to revert to per-post notifications as this will clear the affected database keys. Then re-apply the digest settings.

    All of my tests have worked. Looks like it was a corrupt database. Thanks for help and the pointers!
