Manage Subscription Categories (8 posts)

    The site I've got in development won't allow users access to wp-admin at all - is there a way I can incorporate the form into a page on the website itself, instead of the page within the admin panel?

    There's nothing wrong with where it is now, it just doesn't fit into my specific needs.

    Any help is appreciated.

    For some reason the post didn't capture the plugin name.

    There is no way I know of to do this. The plugin 'Theme My Login' somehow pulls the login screen and profile page into a front facing WordPress page so these pages are presented to your users in the same visual style as the rest of your site.

    If you are familiar with PHP you might want to take a look at these and see if you can get them working together.

    Thanks Matt, that won't work here though - since technically the page they'd be seeing would just be inside of wp-admin, but skinned to look like the rest of the site (I already tried that.)

    I need to bring the page completely outside of wp-admin, since I'm not allowing any access inside there.

    I'll play with it later and see if I can get the Notification Settings page working in a page template. After all, it's just a form, it has to be possible in some manner.

    I think I actually have it working the way I want, but can you confirm a few things for me:

    The mail triggering looks at the individual meta s2_cat* having a value of something (in most cases the value of that cat seems to be inserted.

    The s2_subscribed meta entry doesn't do anything as far as the actual mailings go, right? This is just what determines which checkboxes are pre-checked when someone views their subscriptions through the admin panel?

    I manually built an entire form that basically does the same thing as the ?page=s2_userspage does in the admin panel, I just want to confirm that my suspicions about s2_cat* is correct before I commit the changes.

    Thanks much.

    The s2_cat meta values are indeed used when getting user emails for the notifications. The s2_subscribed meta value is used when processing user input to that the forms can handle adding new categories to a subscription at the same time as removing others as well as checking the subscribed categories on the form.

    Perfect, thanks Matt.

    So since I'm not using the "real" form, I don't need to care about s2_subscribed at all.

    I realize this solution won't work for everyone, but the categories for this site I'm building are set in stone, so building the form by hand works fine. For those that are stumbling onto this post wanting to know how I've built the Subscribe2 Notifications form outside of /wp-admin, my solution likely won't work for you. But post a comment if you're interested, and I'll detail the steps.

    I'm interested.
    I have a similar problem.
    I'm using dynamically created categories, so slightly different issue. But maybe seeing your solution will give me a little spark of insight into how I should do it.
