  • Hello infogurke,

    we had some issues with your plugin, so we switched to Subscribe to
    Comments Reloaded. We are having even more issues with that – the
    import of your subscription status from wp_comments table is also
    importing subscribed email for spam comments. So then it’s sending out
    notification to these spammers. Terrible!

    We are willing to fix your plugin and send you the fixes. That will
    allow us to go on using your plugin on new sites. Some people
    complained about the WP 3.1 compatibility, so we will see if we have
    any issues. We noticed some interface problems, so I’m talking mainly
    about that.

    Let us know if you are willing to review these changes and put them
    into plugin and perhaps leave a link of “thank you” somewhere on the
    plugin page.

  • There is a more in-depth discussion of Gurken Subscribe to Comments and alternatives on this Subscribe to Comments discussion.

    We’re considering releasing an upgrade of Gurken as Martin SpĆ¼tz seems inclined to abandon Gurken unfortunately. Our upgrade will be fully cross-compatible with original Gurken and Mark Jacquith’s original Subscribe to Comments so you will be able to switch between the plugins as you wish.

    Our focus will be on safety, compatibility and simplicity.

    Anyone interested in such an upgrade to Gurken, feel free to let us know. If there’s a lot of interest, we’ll accelerate development.

    Making the web work for you,

    Alec Kinnear
    Creative Director

    So, where’s your wonderful new plugin?
