[Resolved] [Plugin: Subscribe2] Bug in 8.0?

  • There appears to be a bug in the new 8.0 update. When I updated the plugin, my page would not load and I get the following message from Firefox.

    “The page isn’t redirecting properly. Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete. This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.”

    I do not have cookies disabled. The only way to get the page back was to manually uninstall the plugin. 7.2 works fine.

    Just a heads up, thanks for the great plugin 🙂

  • I’ve just had exactly the same experience.

    An update to fix this would be great.

    Also love the plugin!

    Ah glad someone else has reported it, getting the same on Multi-Site. Rolled back to 7.2 for now.

    I fine it practically impossible to test on MultiSite installs so my apologies for this bug. If anyone is prepared to allow me access to your site to debug this issue please can you contact me here.

    Check email.


    I’ll be checking my email from home tonight – about 6 hours from now. Can’t check it while I’m at work.

    No problem, just give me a shout – I’ll be on most of the evening.

    I’d like to roll back to v.7.2 but cannot find where to download it now.
    Can somebody help?


    They’re always in the Other Version section.

    Oops. Sorry for stupid question 🙂
    Thank you Ed!

    Same problem here as well

    I’m having the same problem. A temporary work-around (besides downgrading to 7.2) is to comment out lines 83-84, 87-88. These lines appear to be responsible for the infinite redirect loop.

    Also of note, if you attempt to access the implicated pages (/wp-admin/users.php?page=s2_users or /wp-admin/profile.php?page=s2_users) after commenting those lines you get the following error:

    You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.

    And, finally, the following page doesn’t include the WP bar at the top of the page. Premature end of script maybe?

    Yea, there is a bug with the latest version. I noticed that I could not login to the Dashboard after I updated to the latest version of the Subscribe2 plugin. WordPress search also doesn’t seem to be doing anything. I noticed that in both occasion, my blog redirects everything back to my home page. I ended up using FTP and deleting the Subscribe2 plugin for now, until a fix is available.

    First I’d like to thank Ed for getting in touch and allowing me to bug hunt using his web space – without that fixing this would have taken ages.

    I’ve just committed some changes to the code and there is now a development version 8.1 ready for download here:

    And I think it fixes quite a few bugs I found including the huge redirect issue – after fixing that though I found plenty more. Please report any further issues as fully as you can here on this thread.

    This looks good to me so far (WP 3.3.1 multisite). Thanks for your quick fix.

    Much thanks. I will install and if it works, will note on the plugins page that it works.

    Update: It works. Thank you for supporting your software … I’m sending a few buck doantion and encourage others to do so as well.
