[resolved] Subscribe2 - temporarily suspend all notifications (4 posts)

    Thanks for this great plug-in ... I just have a question which needs a work around.

    I wish to archive some existing pages as old posts and don't want the subscribers to be notified. Essentially this is just a bit of house work/ re-organisiation of a site.

    Can I temporarily suspend all notifications ?
    If I back-date posts, would notifications be sent ?

    One potential work around might be to add a new category, e.g. 'archive' and disable all notifications for that category - but that is not ideal.

    Any suggestions very welcome.

    Many thanks,

    Why not simply de-activate the plugin while you amend your posts?

    Thanks for your swift reply - but ignore this query.

    In case anyone else has a similar question, this feature is built in: you can disable notification for individual posts !

    wrt. your answer I wasn't sure how things were scheduled: whether if I deactivated, when it was reactivated the back log would get sent out.

    Thanks !

    That's another way of doing it - enable the email over ride for each post you edit.

    That said, if you are simply updating a post then it should not result in a new email notification anyway unless:

    1/ You are using per-post more, and revert the post to a draft status before re-publishing it.
    2/ You are using digest mode and you edit the publication time of the post to fall within your digest interval.
