Support » Plugin: Subscribe2 » [Plugin: Subscribe2] Request Force/lock Category

  • Resolved iclimb


    At first thanks for a great plugin.

    I do have one request though for a feature that is quite essential to me. That would be the option to make one or more categories mandatory and the rest optional to the users. I need to be sure that my users dont unsubscribe a specific category by a mistake or purpose, since it will contain important news.

    Best regard Christian

  • @iclimb,

    Hmm, that’s not a bad idea. I’ll see what can be done in a future version.

    Glad you liked it 🙂
    Btw just got to think about something. The “force” function would not be worth that much if users wasnt some way “forced” to the subscription, or at least didn’t have the opportunity to unsubscribe.

    Anyway… looking forward to see what your’e ending up with.


    I’ve got a few ideas about how I might get this working so I’ll give them a try.

    Essentially, the same category form will deploy for end used but with the compulsory categories checked and greyed out so they cannot be unchecked.

    An admin user could, after making a compulsory category, Bulk update all existing using in the Subscirbe2->Subscribers menu and probably turn on the auto-subscribe features for newly registering users.


    Okay, I’ve checked in some code changes to enable compulsory categories. There is a new section in the Settings page to allow this and compulsory categories are now checked and greyed out in the Profile page.

    See what you think, you can access the development code here.


    Ive tested it at bit now. And as far i can see it works just perfectly. Thanks for the very quick response. It was exatly the way i was thinking it should be.
    Im about to translate it for danish and maybe a few others. But do you have anywhere for uploading the files for others to use, and see what’s already translated? I cant seem to find any page about it.


    The translation files are all here:

    Open tickets here and upload your files so I can add them.

    I like the Compulsory Categories but what if the user wants to unsubscribe from emails? They currently cannot since the Compulsory Categories cannot be unchecked…
