    I am having a bit of trouble with this. I went threw the read me. here is where I am having trouble:
    Trouble: 1. Create the email_list table in your Word Press
    MySQL database.
    [Use email_list.sql]
    What I did: in mysql, i made a database named email_list. then I Went into PhP myadmin, from the SQL database, and uploaded in the "email_list.sql" file. and logged out of SQL
    Problem: 4. Copy email-notification.php to:
    What I did: I did not have a /wp-content folder. So what I did is created one, and made the subfolder plugins, and put those two files in it.
    That seems to be it. On my website http://www.alphavillegazette.com, on the right panel, I have the "sign up email" notification, however, whenever I enter in an email, i get brought to an error page. I am thinking I did something wrong. anything i had troubles with, i listed here. any help, or response would be greatly appreciate.

    You are using:
    "<meta name="generator" content="WordPress 1.0.1" "
    You'll need to update to 1.2mingus.
    1.0.1 is *really* old :)

    I tried to update, however when I did, the installation, some how corrupted it. And luckily I had a back up, which took me over 1 hour to move the files back into /public_html

    Anyways, another update to the issue:
    Running: 1.0.1
    Also I got it working I think. Somehow, I did not change http://www.mysite.com , to my url. But I did that, and I get the letter to confirm, however, after I enter in my email, it takes me to this page in which, I get this messege.
    No Database Selected
    Warning: mysql_fetch_assoc(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in /home/alpha/public_html/maillist/index.php on line 63

    I went in my maillist/index.php, and i get something that says this (on line 63):
    $row = mysql_fetch_assoc($res);
    Not sure what to do, thanks!

    The database structure of 1.0.1 and the internal file structure of
    1.0.1 is significantly different from 1.2.
    Plugins were merely a twinkle in Matt's eye when 1.0.1 was around, and they will just keep dumping errors onto you. So although you experienced an error earlier, it really is worth trying again.
    You have a backup, and it works - that is good.
    Now upgrade to the sparkly version of wp :)
