    thanks for creating this plugin. 🙂

    I have just installed it, but:

    1. it imported only 7 comment subscriptions on almost 300;
    2. when a logged-out reader clicks on “Subscribe without commenting” appears a page that requests his email (that’s ok) but below you can see a list of recent comments

    Perhaps the second issue could depend on my theme: a tip would be very appreciated.

    Hi there,

    thank you for using my plugin 🙂

    As for your issues:

    1) this is really odd, I’ll look into the import function. Is there any chance you can give me a copy of your wp_comments table to perform some tests?

    2) that page is treated by WP as a regular page, so it follows whatever you have in your template for displaying pages.

    If you want, you can contact me via my support forum at


    1. Sorry, but there isn’t.
    2. I tried on my test blog on localhost, using WordPress 3.0.1 and Twenty Ten theme (the default theme) – the result is shown here:

    Thanks for your support.

    For my info.
    In the case I decide to come back to the old plugin “Subscribe to comments”, uninstalling your plugin and reimporting my backed-up comments table is enough to restore the previous condition?

    Hi Aldo,

    thanks for your feedback. About your questions:

    1) Unfortunately, I cannot troubleshoot your problem just from your phrase “it imported only 7 comment subscriptions on almost 300” 😉 I need further details about your data to see what the problem could be. The plugin itself performs the following query to import the old data, and it has worked fine on most installations so far

    INSERT INTO $this->table_subscriptions (email,status,post_ID,dt)
    	SELECT DISTINCT comment_author_email, comment_subscribe, comment_post_ID, comment_date
    	FROM $wpdb->comments
    	WHERE comment_author_email LIKE '%@%.%'

    But I understand your concerns, so starting from version 1.3, the old data won’t be deleted anymore. This will allow users who are not satisfied with my plugin to rollback to the other one in just a few clicks.

    2) I tested my plugin with TwentyTen, and the only thing I see is ‘comments are closed for this post’, which is what should happen, indeed. I’m looking into it, though, and I’m trying to completely disable comments for the management page.

    3) Yes.


    first thing I got upon activation (WP 3.0.1) was Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION or T_FUNCTION or T_VAR or '}' in <path to plugin - > on line 54

    sorry double posting

    Hi U8IK,

    what version of PHP are you using? This plugin (see official page) requires at least PHP 5.x. Please check with your hosting provider and let me know.


    PS: I bet you are also the smart guy who said my plugin is broken and gave it less than five stars. Thanks, bro!

    I’m getting this error on my page: Warning: strpos() [function.strpos]: Empty delimiter

    on line 340.

    AttackoftheBook, please provide the following info:

    1) what version of the plugin are you using?
    2) did you upgrade from an earlier version?
    3) what is the value in the first field on the Options panel?


    Sorry about the lack of information. I had to get offline for a bit.

    Anywho, thanks to your questions, I realized that I hadn’t put anything for question #3. When I added a generic title (management page) everything worked. The error is no longer showing. So thanks for helping me figure that out!!

    I don’t know if you need this info anymore but just in case: I am using version 1.2.1. I did upgrade from the earlier version. I didn’t have the page set in that one and didn’t get the error then.

    But now everything is cleared up so once again, THANK YOU 🙂

    Hi AttackoftheBook,

    thanks for the update. I realized that extra step wasn’t clear enough in my instructions, so I changed the wording in the last step of the installation procedure. Hopefully that will avoid other misunderstandings in the future 🙂

    Have a nice weekend,

    I think version 1.3 addresses all the issues pointed out in this thread. Please let me know if you have any questions.


    I’ll give it a try. 🙂

    Hi Camu,

    Great work man, this is wonderful that you are updating this amazing plugin. There is one issue I see. When I go to “Manage Subcriptions” page for a particular post, it shows the comments from other posts too.
    Example here, the comment by “Tom” is from another post.

    Shouldn’t that page only show the comments for the post titled “Facebook’s sweet new deal for Small Businesses” ?

    Hi Richgoodman,

    this seems to be a ‘bug’ related to some templates, which apparently are not 100% compliant with the way WordPress renders a page. I’m more than willing to “iron out” this bug, but I’d need to know if the template you’re using can be downloaded somewhere on the web for me to test it.


    Ah Camu, sorry about this mate. So it’s a problem with the theme not your plugin. Can I send you a private message with the information?
