  • Resolved Delete Me



    Just installed this plugin after having problems with the Gurken version after upgrading to a new theme. It seems to work fine, but the management page looks messy:

    I can’t even tell which button is for which, lol. Anyway to fix this?

    In addition, I also noted a minor problem when it comes to subscribing to comments without making one yourself. You go through the process of subscribing as usual, but when you visit the comment thread, it won’t indicate that you are subscribed to that thread, leaving the visitor to think he isn’t subscribed, so he does it again, and again, and again (to infinity). For this reason I was considering removing this as an option so users HAVE to comment in order to subscribe (thus avoiding this potential loop). Just thought you should be aware.

    Any help in resolving the jumbled management page would be very appreciated. Thanks!

    Hi there,

    you will have to work on your theme’s CSS in order to fix the issue. Not sure why those who designed it, made it that way. As you can imagine, there’s nothing my plugin can do to adapt its layout to EVERY template available out there.

    As for subscribing without commenting, a cookie should be set for the user (which should avoid the “loop”), but I’ll double check later and get back to you on this one.


    Ok, I use a theme framework so I’ll have to find a way to prevent it from hosing the buttons.

    I did find another possible issue though: in IE7 browsers, the javascript to select all or invert choices appears to be broken. Since it’s a vanilla page I don’t think its a javascript conflict. just in case you want to check it out!

    I will definitely take a look at it, thank you for pointing that out


    Ps: a vote for my plugin would be a nice way to thank me eh eh


    After tearing my hair out trying to find CSS that would work, I discovered a potentially better way to resolve the alignment issues was to put the radio buttons inside their respective <label>..</label> tags, and the checkbox and meta information regarding each email address within their respective <label> tags as well, in both author.php and user.php.

    That prevented the line breaks that was messing everything up and asa result it looks MUCH cleaner now. The added bonus is that clicking on the words will also activate the checkbox or radio button.

    If you want, let me know if you’d like me to send you the modified author/user.php files so you can take a look. Please consider using these new modifications for future releases too, so I don’t have to manually adjust the code every single time.

    Or better yet, consider adding the ability to customize management pages so we’re not forced to dive into our theme’s core files for hours trying to change things around, despite having a kindergarten understanding of CSS or PHP.

    If you’ll do that you’ll definitely get 5 stars from me. 😀

    Hi there,

    I will take a look at that, but the BR’s are being added by some other plugin of yours, since StCR already has a function to disable that WP “feature” 🙂 So I guess I deserve the 5 stars already. Jokes aside, you made a good point, I added your request to my todo list.


    Could be, I didn’t know what else to do as any CSS trick I tried were completely ignored. The only thing I could manage to do was remove the bullets using CSS. Placing the checkboxes/radio buttons inside the <label> tags was the only thing that worked.

    Regardless, voted you up. 😀

    Thank you, really appreciated!


    Okay, this has been implemented in the new version available soon to the public 🙂 Thanks for your feedback!
