  • What version of Subscribe2 are you using?

    Did this work in previous versions of WordPress do you know (before 3.2)?

    WordPress 3.3 and Subscribe 7.0.1
    I can’t be positive but I think it did work with earlier versions.

    I am also noticing this issue, worked pre-3.2, Have updated to latest version of WordPress and Subscribe2

    I can still send messages manually through Subscribe2 but no auto notifcation is sent out when posting via LiveWriter

    Thanks guys,

    I’m doing some digging. I don’t personally use Live Writer so can you describe the process for me?

    It uses a feature in WordPress called XML RPC. At the moment I think it’s possibly down to one of 2 things:

    1/ Plugins are not being loaded in WordPress 3.3 when posts are made through XML RPC.
    2/ The post transition hooks are being fired differently somehow.

    No, with respect to the latter of these there may be a little fix. I think new posts made through XML RPC may get an initial post_status of ‘auto-draft’ and if these are then moved to a published state without being saved first then Subscribe2 won’t get fired.

    Try looking in the subscribe2.php file, towards the very end there is a function called subscribe2() and it contains the following:

    add_action('new_to_publish', array(&$this, 'publish'));
    add_action('draft_to_publish', array(&$this, 'publish'));
    add_action('pending_to_publish', array(&$this, 'publish'));
    add_action('private_to_publish', array(&$this, 'publish'));
    add_action('future_to_publish', array(&$this, 'publish'));

    Try adding this to that same section:
    add_action('auto-draft_to_publish', array(&$this, 'publish'));


    The line addition to the file worked for me. Thanks.

    Windows Live Writer is hugely popular — it works well, and you might try it yourself — so you might expect this problem to be widespread. The new line should be part of the next upgrade.


    Thank you so much for confirming the fix – it’s so difficult when you are trying to figure out what could be going wrong from just reading the code!

    I’ll certainly get this fixed rolled into the next version.
